By acquiring these techniques, staff will be better equipped to

A FRESH LOOK AT
THE LOBBY It’s amazing how new furniture can improve the look of a space! For those who have not yet spotted them, the furniture at our Main Clubhouse Lobby was replaced in February. With a chic, cool colour palette and plush materials, the brand new sets of sofas, carpets and coffee tables lend a clean aesthetic to our spacious lobby.
NEW GYM EQUIPMENT Gym junkies rejoice! We’ve added brand new gym equipment just for you. The new machinery include: ✓ Torso Rotation
✓ Seated Leg Press
✓ Leg Extension
✓ Seated Leg Curl
✓ Chest Press
✓ Abdominal Crunch
The improved gym layout also ensures that users will be able to use all equipment with ease. Happy exercising!
Improved Traffic Flow Members who enter the Club from SLE, CTE or TPE may notice smoother traffic just before turning into Seletar Club Road. The Land Transport Authority (LTA) has widened the former merging lanes just outside the slip road into two separate lanes, so members will be able to turn left easily. Members are advised to drive safely Seated Leg Curl Machine

WONDERS At Seletar, we are committed to protect and enhance the natural environment that surrounds us. In fact, it is the wildlife that thrives in our golf course that makes golfing at Seletar so unique. We strive to promote green practices and care for all living organisms in our environment, and we are proud to have members and staff who embrace this philosophy. Among them is long-time member Mr Foo Jit Leang, and the Clubâ€™s horticulturist Joseph Kwok. How do these individuals help make Seletar a greener space? Seletar Buzz finds out.
Nature enthusiast Foo Jit Leang has been a driving force behind the Club’s green initiatives, and is ready to take the Butterfly Garden to the next level.

SG20 VS GOOFERS
GOLF CHALLENGE 2016
Golfers from Seletar’s golfing groups SG20 and Goofers went head to head in their Golf Challenge 2016! Held on 2nd April this year, the event which dates back to 1998 was recently revived in 2014 and has been an annual event ever since. The two groups each fielded 20 golfers for the competitive tournament, with a wager that the winning group pays 30% and losing group pays 70% for dinner! The result: SG20 won! However, scores were tossed aside as both groups retired to the Eagle’s View for a night of feasting, drinking and merry-making. “Although
competitive element to our tournament, at the end of the day it is the friendship and fellowship that we have built over the years that counts the most,” said Alvin Khoo from SG20.
