Raffles Country Club (RCC) will return its land to the Government on August 1, to make way for the Kuala Lumpur-Singapore High-Speed Rail (HSR) and Cross Island Line depot projects.
In order to ease RCC in their closing process, Singapore Land Authority has agreed to rent RCC some facilities including existing clubhouses, golf cart parking spaces, waste transfer stations and 24 parking spaces, for a period of six months starting from August 1.
Although the HSR plan is unclear, analysts believe that the Government is still fulfilling all its obligations under the agreement, which includes preparing Jurong Country Club for its closure, to serve future developments.
“In addition to this High-Speed Rail plan, Singapore will also build some new railway lines in the west, so the land of these two clubs will still be used in the future,” said ZACD Executive Director and Chief Investment Officer, Nicholas Mak.
