Water Sports

Some of the most popular sports in Singapore are water-based. Round-the-island canoe trips are a rage, as are the thrills of water-skiing off Sembawang and Kallang River. Swimming is also popular as Singapore has a number of beaches for swimming. Visitors should visit East Coast Park, Changi Village, or Sentosa Island. Furthermore, Singapore also has a variety of public swimming pools, where admission is only S$1! Private operators do provide canoeing, water-skiing, scuba diving, and windsurfing facilities. They can be found throughout the parks in Singapore, as well as on the nearby islands.


As Singaporeans have become increasingly interested in the game of golf, there are world-class golf courses available throughout the island. Singapore does have quite a number of golf courses although some are only open for members. However, in most clubs, non-members are allowed to play for special fees, which range between S$50 and S$200. Apart from clubs, there is also a number of driving ranges in Singapore. Visitors can thus practice their drives for as little as S$2 for 50 balls. Do note that weekend slots are usually difficult to acquire or strictly reserved for members. Many clubs also require visitors to hold a handicap or proficiency certificate from a recognized club.

Horse Racing

The Singapore Turf Club offers visitors the opportunity to witness on site racing, as well as telecasts of Malaysian races. However, a strict dress code is implemented and must be observed by all visitors. In the public standards, shorts, singlets, and slippers are not allowed, whereas smart casual is the dress code for Members' Enclosure. Races take place on weekends only and they usually start at 1:30 p.m. The last race is at 6 p.m.
