[Update as of 27 July 2020]

Below is a copy of the recent announcement by Orchid Country Club. Please refer to their website (
www.orchidclub.com) for the official announcement.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

As global borders continue to be shut, all clubs are facing a situation where demand for golfing tee times has far outweighed the supply. We apologise for our service lapse and we do understand the frustration some members faced when they could not call through the booking hotline nor get a timely response to their email booking requests because the golf reception is experiencing very high call and email volume, and footfall every day.  We have already beefed up manpower from other departments to help in golfing needs.

To mitigate this problem and on the advice of the authorities who came down to inspect yesterday, we are to discourage golfers from congregating at the golf reception and golf bag drop area. As such, all 
BOOKINGS OF TEE TIMES FOR WEEKDAYS shall be done via Google form with effect from 27 July 2020 (Monday), 9am. On the same day, requests for tee time bookings via phone calls, emails, and over the counter will cease. This arrangement will be in place until further notice.

Please read and take note of the following terms and conditions:

    not be able to play as visitors. If the booked flight is unable to play because they are unable to ballot for
    golf passes, a penalty of $535 per flight shall be levied on the main booker.


Inclement Weather
1. In the event of inclement weather, the course will be closed if golfers are found to congregate and not comply

MGK Junior Selected for National Development Squad
MGK Junior Selected for National Development Squad
Thursday, January 11, 2018


my golf kaki
is proud to announce that our junior golf ambassador, Angel Lim, has been recently promoted to the Singapore Golf Association (SGA) Development Squad.

Angel started out in the National Junior Squad and performed exceptionally well last year. She recently emerged champion for her age division in the 6th Pondok Indah International Golf Championship in Indonesia, sweeping the competition away with a 12-stroke lead. Her budding skills coupled with her golf acumen and an open mindset made Angel a front-runner to progress to the Development Squad.

The Development Squad will serve as training ground before golfers can progress to the Elite Squad, which will consist of the top amateur golfers in the country. This is a great platform for Angel to cultivate her game as she will be given more opportunities to be exposed to a higher level of training and competition.

Our heartiest congratulations to Angel and we wish her all the best!

The CHS replaces the previous handicapping system, providing a modern and unified platform for golf handicapping, changing the way golfers perform their handicapping activities, and introducing consistency in the calculation of golfers’ Handicap Index. CHS also tracks golfers who play at any golf course in Singapore and requires that a score be posted in order for golfers to avoid being awarded a penalty score. For more information, please visit SGA Centralised Handicapping System.

More information regarding registration for the Centralised Handicapping System (CHS) will be provided via email. Please DO NOT use your NRIC number or the 6-digit my golf kaki membership number as your Handicap membership number.


Online Registration for CHS (with email account)

According to SGA, golfers who have successfully registered and whose membership details have been authenticated by their home club will be sent an email to activate their account.

Once you have activated your account, you will be allowed to log in to view your Handicap Index and enter scores.


Offline Registration for CHS (without email account)
If you do not have an email account, please drop by the my golf kaki office for registration assistance. However, please note that offline submission of scores will require at least ten (10) working days’ lead time. my golf kaki will not be liable for possible penalty imposed due to late submission of scores.

Friday, February 19, 2016

Members maintaining a handicap index with the Club are reminded that to be issued a Handicap Index, golfers must conform to the World Handicap System/United States Golf Association (WHS/USGA) and the SGA Handicap Policies.

A player should post a score immediately after the round or as soon as practical. It is strongly encouraged to post a hole-by-hole score. Total adjusted gross score may be submitted provided that player has already applied the Equitable Stroke Control (ESC) calculations for the submitted score.


Obtain an Active Handicap Index
If you have arranged for a handicap transfer to the Club or have recently completed your Courtesy Round, please submit at least three full 18-hole games via the Centralised Handicapping System (CHS) account to obtain a Handicap Index. Scores must be dated after membership commencement and please ensure at least one score is dated within the last 6 months (ie gap between date of plays not more than 6 months).
