I’m delighted to announce details of this year’s Press Club overseas trip. We have planned a trip to take in the sights, sounds and gastronomic delights of the Yunnan region in south western China.
With the help of club member Salma Khalik and Management Committee member Dicky Goh, we have planned a two-in-one trip – one for golfers, and one a purely social programme.
Avid golfers will love the high altitude courses in Kunming, Dali and Lijiang, including a game at the highest course in the northern hemisphere – the Jade Dragon Snow Mountain course at 3,100 metres above sea level (achieve your record breaking drive with your ball flying 20 per cent further than in Singapore!)
For the social group, be enthralled by the contrasts of the ancient and modern worlds, the caves, waterfalls, stone forests/dams and the mountains. And more importantly for some, the shopping, the spas, the food and the karaoke.
To meet the needs of both social and golfing members, we have separate packages for golfers and the social group. We have also split the full 10-day period into 2 parts (21-24 Oct and 24-31 Oct) to cater to those who cannot take the full trip. In other words, you can choose Tour A or Tour B, or both Tour A+B.
Please study the attached package programmes which give the details. As the group size has to be limited, you are advised to apply early to reserve your seats, together with your cheques for 50% of the package that you prefer.
