Dear Members

On the golfing front, Team Seletar is gripped by a different fever. The new season of the SGA Inter-Club

Football fever is back! From 14 June, World Cup 2018 will dominate our waking (and sleeping) hours. To help you catch the exciting World Cup action with family and friends, the Tavern will feature free ‘live’ telecasts of all World Cup screenings complete with fun contests, prediction challenges and more. Keep your eyes peeled for the match fixtures and telecast times; these will be updated via our weekly electronic bulletin, the Seletar Buzz Online. If you are not yet subscribed, drop an email to marcom@seletarclub.com.sg to register today and keep yourself updated on our ‘live’ screenings. The Club has also been abuzz of late with the introduction of a new Seletar Tennis Academy (STA). Managed by Active4Sports and featuring the Men’s Team Coach for Singapore’s SEA Games Tennis Squad, the STA has seen a number of sign-ups for its private coaching programmes and the revival of our Seletar Social Tennis nights. Read more about our coaches and the new Tennis programmes on pages 22-23 of this issue.

League has just started, and congratulations is in order for Team Seletar, who have won the first three games in a row. With the third leg of the league safely under our belt, we have a good head start. Nonetheless we still have a long way to go and so to our 2018 Team I would like to wish them “Best of luck! May success follow each of you at every stage and we retain the championship title!”

GOLF COURSE RENOVATION UPDATE On the topic of golf, I am pleased to share that the golf course renovation project is progressing well and according to schedule. In the past few months, our team has been busy finalising the golf course design with our consultants and obtaining approvals from the relevant authorities. Further modifications have been necessary to meet additional guidelines and our aim is still to preserve the course character and challenge rating. In January, we appointed Green Dynasty – part of the team behind the redevelopment of several premier golf courses in Singapore and around the region – as our Construction Manager to tap on their expertise and experience in golf course construction and development.

GETTING TO KNOW our Membership Girls Seletar Buzz speaks with our membership girls, Lee Wan-Yi and Stella Phua, about providing good service to members. Read on as they spill the beans on their innermost thoughts and feelings about being part of the Seletar family! How do you find working in SCC so far? Wan Yi (WY): I have only been here for less than 18 months but it feels much longer! Work can get pretty stressful at times, but my colleagues have been extremely supportive. Stella (ST):

I have experienced many ups and downs over the years here, but we just have to keep going no matter what happens. Sometimes, we may not perform up to members’ expectations and end up getting chided, but it’s about taking things in your stride. I feel that I have really learnt and grown a lot over the years.

What keeps you going at work? WY: The thought of going home! (laughs) Just kidding. I really look forward to eating Chicken Chop every Monday – I’m a huge meat lover! But seriously, I enjoy the feeling of having good friends at work. Camaraderie with your colleagues is so important and I’m glad I get to experience such good relationships with them. ST: Definitely my colleagues. If I don’t come to work, they will miss me! (laughs)

Do you have any tips to share about providing good service in this line? WY: A smile a day keeps the blues at bay! I really believe that a smile is the most crucial part of working in the service industry. We should also be as honest and transparent as we can – apologise and rectify things immediately if we made a mistake. At the end of the day, we should always keep calm and push on – face up to any problems like a real woman! ST: Always face people with a sincere heart – that’s my motto. If we treat people genuinely without expecting anything in return from them, there’s so much more meaning in the work we do. In the service line, we also have to be elastic like a rubber band. When problems crop up and we have to face members, it is important to be flexible about how we react to them. I try to treat every member as though they are my good friends, and talk to them or joke with them without any reservations. I think it has helped me connect with them.

From left to right: Wan Yi and Stella

What do you think are each other’s spirit animal and why? WY: I think Stella’s spirit animal should be a dog. She’s so friendly towards everyone and fiercely loyal to the people she is close to. She’s also rather happy-go-lucky! ST: Wan Yi is more like a kangaroo or rabbit, always hyper and jumping around so excitedly. Yet underneath that, she’s a really gentle and receptive girl.

What do you like to do outside of work? WY: I am an avid gamer. I recently bought a Virtual Reality (VR) set and have been making full use of it at home since! I also collect figurines and love DC Comics. ST: I enjoy playing Mahjong and basketball!

MAY/JUN 2018


TOWARDS SERVICE EXCELLENCE

Having worked with each other for so long, what do you think are each other’s special talents? WY: Stella is able to gargle an entire mouthful of water and still talk at the same time! Can anybody else do that? ST: Wan Yi can eat two portions of food at every meal and still remain underweight – it’s just amazing because I’m on the opposite end of the weight spectrum! She can also laugh very hard without making a single sound. Try doing that and you’ll know how difficult it really is!

What do you think are each other’s best quality? WY: Stella has really good people skills – she knows how to connect with nearly everyone! She also makes sure I’m well fed all the time – she’s quite the sister hen. ST: Wan Yi is very willing to learn and she is often our 'kai xin guo' (happy pill) even when the going gets tough. I guess you can say she’s tenacious too. And yes, our sisterhood and chemistry with each other is really strong!

Any interesting fact you might want to share about yourself? WY: When I was born, my parents nearly called me Wan Dou (bowl of beans). (laughs) ST: I gained 40kg during my first pregnancy, and I have only lost half of that weight after 9 years!

We should also be as honest and transparent as we can – apologise and rectify things immediately if we made a mistake. At the end of the day, we should always keep calm and push on – face up to any problems like a real woman!

1st QUARTER STAR AWARDS WINNERS Our heartiest congratulations to the winners and runner-ups of our quarterly STAR Awards! To reward them for their excellent service and exemplary work attitude, these staff will enjoy a cash incentive on top of an additional day off. They definitely deserve it!

GOLF

Towards 2040: A Championship Course in the Making In 1995, Seletar Country Club created a stir when it opened its doors as a new 18-hole championship golf course. Then acting minister for Community Development, Mr Abdullah Tarmugi, lauded the Club’s move. He compared the Club to its earlier days in the Seletar Airbase and drew attention to how it “had only a modest and flat nine-hole course” as compared to the hugely contrasted “magnificent and serene view” of today. (National Archives of Singapore, Speech by Mr Abdullah Tarmugi) Fast forward 23 years, and the Seletar golf course has become much loved for the tranquility and alluring greenery it ensconces. Set against an uninterrupted view of the reservoir, the beauty and natural landscape of the golf course is iconic of our Club. Yet the time has now come to give a new lease of life to our scenic course as it embarks on a new journey towards 2040. With the renewal of our land lease in 2021 and all our waterfront land being returned to NParks, the golf course is due for a makeover. Rationale for Course Makeover With a 3% land loss which amounts to 21,251.60 metres2 or a 15m boundary setback along the entire reservoir edge, holes that are affected will have to be reconfigured. This will result in a domino effect on other holes, leading to more changes. The Public Utilities Board (PUB) has also passed a regulation that all golf clubs have to be self-sustaining in their future golf course irrigation. This has led to a need to substantively enlarge, deepen and create new water bodies to increase holding capacity, which can be achieved only with a course makeover. With this need for self-sustainability, we had to relook into our irrigation systems too. They have been in place for more than 25 years, with frequent breakage and leakage over the years, requiring costly repairs and replacement works that involve massive manpower resources. Even our watering sprinkler system, as well as main pumps and pump house have seen lots of wear and tear over the years. As we move towards 2040, it is pertinent to address these problems. To ensure our golf course’s smooth sailing journey in this next stage, wall-to-wall Zoysia carpeting will be installed to eliminate the need for re-turfing works, which are labour intensive and cost ineffective. Improvements will be simultaneously made to enhance safety issues and remove blind spots. Presently, our existing perimeter fence is beyond economical repair and maintenance. A new perimeter fence will be erected, which will also prevent external intrusion into our golf course.

Repair works that require manual digging of up to 10 feet

Looking Ahead With the completion of the course makeover, our golf course redesign team and architect expect to eliminate issues of slow and dangerous play by removing blind spots on Holes 10, 12 and 17. This will be done by reshaping the fairways for better visibility. Various holes will also be reconfigured – with Holes 4 and 14 being reconfigured from a par-4 to par-5 and Hole 5 transformed from a par-5 to par-4. Holes 15 and 3 will be switched, with several enhancements made to other holes as well. Members can look forward to greens which will be totally remodeled for a brand new golfing experience on a course that is friendly and enjoyable. Explained Vice-Chairman Phua who also chairs the Golf Course Redesign Project Committee, “It is of great challenge that despite the land loss, we are still able to maintain the overall length of the new course with an even more competitive course rating that is ready to host major golf championships in future. We are also looking to incorporate more water elements to highlight our natural landscape and bring about a tranquil and relaxing atmosphere for our members while they golf. It is our hope that with the continued support of our members, we will be able to achieve this and uphold a course that has even more character compared to what we have today.”

GOLF

The Design Philosophy Seletar Buzz speaks to our golf course design architects from Golfplan, David Dale and Kevin Ramsey, to find out what they have in store for us! What are your thoughts on our Seletar course and how different will the golf course be after the makeover? Seletar’s course has really good bones – it’s rounded rather well and has very good original architecture which sets the golf course so naturally in its environment. We love the undulation and contours – it uses the land so beautifully and we wish to preserve this “British Isle” flavor. We aim to highlight and maintain the view of the natural environment. After the makeover, there will be more visibility for the bunkers. Bunkers are like makeup – it gives a golf course memorability and eye appeal. We want members to go “wow” when they see our course. In the new course, you will be able to get better angles for strategic play and approach shots. I believe that the new course will be as aesthetically pleasing, but most importantly, we want to create a brand new challenge without creating any weaknesses. For instance, members can also look forward to the great condition of Zoysia carpeting without any contamination – it’ll be a wonderful place to golf in. Are there any iconic features that golfers can expect for the course makeover? Yes, there will be dramatic water features incorporated into the design model. We will also be enhancing and enlarging water bodies to resolve water sustainability issues. Water elements will feature strongly in the course – creating relaxing sounds and a tranquil atmosphere for all golfers. We are looking at designing a dramatic water feature behind the 7th green and also to showcase another water feature behind the 18th green. There will definitely be more ponding and larger water surface area – this will help us to become more water-sustainable. We will also have new configuration of lakes that will occur on Holes 3 and 15, with a new lake left of Hole 4. The shapes of our lakes will also change before Holes 6, 7 and 8, with the key factor being deep waters for better storage. The new 14th green side will exemplify a very dramatic setting with the Banyan trees in the background. Once we are done with works here, we will certainly be known for our beautiful landscape and big trees. This is a great place and site, without a lot of background noise. It’s tranquil here, we’re one with nature. How would you describe our new golf course? Environmentally dramatic and memorable.

From left: David Dale & Kevin Ramsey

I’m sure this question is on everyone’s minds. The view of the serene Seletar Reservoir has been iconic for our course since 1995. Considering the new public access walkway, what should members expect after the renovation? We have discussed elevation to preserve the view, especially at Holes 4, 5 and 13. We will try to break the visual to any activity on that path. Undulation and vistas will be created along the landscape, together with ‘windows’ looking out from the golf course into the reservoir. The charm of the reservoir is such an important part of the course, it has to be maintained. We want to filter views so that golfers can see what we want to show them, yet not get distracted by the activity going around outside. What will be the new signature hole? Whew, that’s a tough one! To me, all 18 holes are special. We don’t want just one hole to stand out, we want every hole to be debatable on whether it’s the best one. We want the golfer to come off saying that 7th was memorable, 9th was a tough test; 3rd is where they want to return to hit their shot again or maybe try a different approach on the 12th. Let the golfers pick a new favourite each time they play. This way, we will create a memorable course that will last a lifetime.

- A Groundbreaking Experience Our ladies at the famous Cape Manza!

Think Japan, and what comes to mind? Sushi, sashimi, sakura, sake, scenic views? Okinawa, a chain of islands located south of Japan, is famous for all these and more. When our lady golfers visited the beautiful place from 3 to 9 March, they were treated to Japan’s gorgeous scenery and delicious food! However, on top of the usual golf games and visiting of iconic attractions, they experienced something that we would never encounter in Singapore – an earthquake.

Enjoying a traditional Japanese meal! Fun and games to complete a memorable trip!

GOLF Strawberry picking for our ladies!

On the incident, Jean Tieh recounted, “It was so funny just thinking about it! We were all sitting on the floor of our hotel room and Diane was dancing around. Suddenly, I felt the floor move forwards and backwards. I thought it was just my imagination. I didn’t even realise it was an earthquake!” The tour guide later told them that it was a slight earthquake measuring 2.0 on the Richter scale. During their last day in Okinawa, nature ruled once more as temperatures fell to as low as 10°C. It was so cold and windy that day, our lady golfers could not even open their room doors! Instead, they had to ‘bulldoze’ their way through. They took it all in their stride though, as the close-knitted group reflected on the trip as one that was "frightening at times, but overall very interesting and enjoyable!"

To be honest, it was quite exciting as it was my first time experiencing an earthquake. A few of the other ladies experienced it for the first time too! Luckily it was small scale. I can’t imagine what would have happened if it was major!

All ready for a game of golf!

GOLFING SAFELY We would like to ensure that all our members have good experiences while golfing on our course. Do take note of these common do’s and don’ts to ensure that safety is never compromised!

DoN’Ts ∞ Do not play any approach shot if the hole is ‘blind’ (e.g. Hole #10). Do not play your second shot towards the green until you have driven up and made sure that the coast is clear. ∞ At any point in time if you are unsure about whether your shot may reach the group in front of you, do not proceed to play. Hold back until you have seen the front group move off.

Do’s

he ound t I am ar se don’t a le area, p ball yet. r hit you

TWO New REASONS TO GOLF OVERSEAS

∞ When you have accidentally played a shot into the front flight, drive up immediately and offer your sincere apology. Offer a friendly handshake or an apologetic bow and if need be, a jug of beer after the game! ∞ When looking for the ball, always leave your buggy parked in the middle of the fairway. This is to indicate to the group behind that you are still within the vicinity and range.

MODERNISING GOLF RULES: ADOPTING 'READY GOLF' In line with proposed 2019 revisions to the United States Golf Association (USGA) Rules of Golf to foster prompt pace of play, the Club will be adopting 'Ready Golf' from 1 March 2018. Clarifying the push for this new rule, the USGA website states that “[This new rule encourages] players to recognise that their pace of play affects others, and that they should play promptly throughout each round by preparing in advance for each stroke, moving promptly between strokes, and in going to the next tee”. USGA cites that implementation of this new rule allows committees to set specific expectations such as the '40-Seconds' rule. This rule enables golfers to 'play faster by confirming it is proper to play out of turn when it is safe and responsible to do so'.

How Does Ready Golf Affect You? Simply put, you should play the moment you are ready, instead of adhering to ‘farthest from the hole plays first’. Needless to say you should always prioritise safety and take your shot only when it is safe to do so, without endangering other golfers.

New '40 Seconds' Rule USGA recommends that golfers “should make a stroke in no more than 40 seconds [or lesser] after he is able to play without interference or distraction”. Should you encounter a playing partner who repeatedly takes longer than 40 seconds to make his stroke, a gentle reminder should suffice.

Examples of Ready Golf

What is Ready Golf? Ready Golf can be carried out in stroke play and comprise actions aimed at speeding up golfers’ movement around the course and reducing the time taken for them to complete a round. It is worth noting that Ready Golf would be inapplicable in Match Play due to the strategy involved between opponents.

The following illustration highlights when and where Ready Golf should be practiced. More examples can be found on the USGA website, www.usga.org.

Shorter Hitters First

Putt out Putt out even if it means standing close to someone else’s line.

Hit your Shot Honour Hit your shot if the player who has just played from a bunker is still farther away but delayed due to raking the bunker. Short hitters play first.

Hit your tee shot if the player with the honour is not ready to play.

Walk Over

Assessment Hit then Search Hit your shot before helping someone search for their ball.

Play when a player who is farther away is facing a challenging shot and is taking time to assess their options.

SELETAR BUZZ 19 MAY/JUN 2018

When a player’s ball has gone over the back of the green, play if you are ready.

Fun time not just for kids! Guess who's our bunny? Psst... You know the answer!

Splashing Great Time! Our Easter Swimming Carnival returned on 31 March this year. Although it was an event designed specially for children, the adults had a great time too!

emerged – Megan Chong and Jolin Wong. Congratulations to them for not giving up! For those of you who are curious, the names of the bunnies are Fuzzy Hopps and Daisy Thumper!

They cheered on their kids wildly during the swimming competition, participated in the pool telematch, took part in a range of free sports trials, and even played on the bouncy castle!

There were plenty of other activities that kept the children entertained – carnival games, easter craft-making, foam pool, water bouncy castle and also an engaging magic show where a magician swallowed a sword!

Perhaps the highlight of the event was the contest that got everyone scrambling around the Club. Children and adults searched high and low for the names of two bunnies which were placed in secret places around the Club. After a full day’s search (accompanied with lots of sweat), 2 lucky winners

When asked about her thoughts on this annual event, parent Pauline Toh said, “I’ll definitely be back again next year with my children. This time though, I’ll be bringing my cousins and their children along as well – the more the merrier!”

Swimming... to fame and glory!

ARE YOU READY FOR THE Greatest Football EveNT? The sport that unites entire nations is back after four years and we just can’t wait! Immerse yourselves in the electric atmosphere of FIFA World Cup 2018 right here at Seletar! From 14 Jun to 15 Jul, catch the live telecast of all 64 matches at Seletar Terrace and Tavern for free! Gather all your kakis now and get ready to support your favourite teams together – but don’t forget to take part in our contests to win attractive prizes! We spoke to two of our diehard football fans - father and son duo Koh Kheng Guan and Ryan Koh to gather their insights and prediction tips.

Let's hear from our very own

FIFA World Cup 2018 Tipsters... Messi! Messi! Messi! Arguably the best player on the planet (Cristiano Ronaldo fans, we hear you!) yet to win a major trophy with his country. I can see neutral fans nodding their heads earnestly if I were to say, “Let’s see Lionel Messi lift the World Cup on 15 July!” That would definitely be a football fairy tale come true. Yet the reality is that the odds are hugely stacked against Messi and Argentina. Thrown into the Group of Death, they face dark horse Croatia, powerhouse-slayer Iceland (remember England in Euro 2016?) as well as Nigeria, who performed exceedingly well in the World Cup qualifiers.

Kheng Guan’s Picks Top Players to Watch out for: Mohamed Salah (Egypt, Liverpool FC), Cristiano Ronaldo (Portugal, Real Madrid FC), Lionel Messi (Argentina, Barcelona FC), Neymar Jr (Brazil, Paris St. Germain FC) Surprise Teams of the Tournament: Senegal & Egypt (because King Salah)

It is a fact that no South American team has ever lifted the World Cup on European soil before and I don’t see it happening this year. Much as I do wish to see the little magician finally lift the World Cup with Argentina, I’m afraid that it may all be wishful thinking on our part.

Underperforming Teams of the Tournament: Brazil (Remember the 7-1 drubbing by Germany on their home soil?), Belgium (Golden generation of football talents who have yet to ‘show up’ at big games)

Whatever happens, I’m sure there’ll be plenty of drama and also plenty of mouth-watering goals and upsets. Let the games begin! Or as they say in Russian 'Da nachnetsya igra'!

Semi-Finalists: England, France, Germany, Spain

Teams I wish to see do well: South Korea & Japan

Dream Final: England vs Germany Golden Boot Winner: Marcus Rashford

It’s about to be that time once again – the event that happens once every four years, the event that brings the whole World to a standstill for a month, the event capable of bringing entire nations pure ecstasy, or reducing them to tears… That’s right, we’re talking about the World Cup. The 2018 edition in Russia sees the absence of several traditional footballing powerhouses – namely three-time finalists the Netherlands, four-time champions Italy, and the reigning Copa America champions Chile. It also sees the debuts of Panama and the country that won our hearts at the 2016 Euros – Iceland, as well as the return of Egypt, Morocco and Peru after an absence of over two decades. So, who are the favourites to win it this year? I will share my predictions here. However, football is never theoretical or predictable – that is the beauty of it. - Ryan Koh

Ryan’s Picks Top Players to Watch out for: Hirving ‘Chucky’ Lozano (Mexico, Club PSV Eindhoven), Ruben Neves (Portugal, Club Wolverhampton Wanderers), Timo Werner (Germany, Club RB Leipzig), Leon Goretzka (Germany, Schalke 04), Sergej Milinkovic-Savic (Serbia, Club Lazio) Surprise Teams of the Tournament: Poland, Egypt Dark Horses: Belgium, Portugal, France Semi-Finalists: Brazil, Spain, Germany, Argentina Finalists: Germany, Spain Golden Boot Winner: Lionel Messi – This is probably Messi’s last chance to lift the World Cup, and he knows it. With this motivation, he should be firing on all cylinders and continuing that stellar form that saw him drag Argentina through the qualifiers. We already know that he is the greatest player of all time, now it’s just time for him to prove his mettle. Golden Gloves Winner: David de Gea – The Spanish keeper is currently leading the Premier League with a total of 16 clean sheets (a personal record) and the most number of saves, with games still left to play. With close competitors Manuel Neuer just returning from injury and safe hands Gianluigi Buffon missing out on his last chance to lift the World Cup, the stage looks set for de Gea to show everyone why he’s widely regarded as the best goalie in the world.

Ryan has included his analysis of four teams that are most likely to win the tournament. Let us take a closer look…

Argentina FIFA World Ranking: 4 Coach: Jorge Sampaoli Think Argentina, and quality players like Aguero, Dybala, Higuain, di Maria, and of course Messi comes to mind. Argentina have so many world class players at their disposal, yet they just can’t seem to make the cut as a world class team, often failing at the very last hurdle. In the past four years, they have made their way to three finals (2014 World Cup, 2015 and 2016 Copa America), not winning a single one. Will it finally be their turn to shine this year? With a little bit of luck, as well as the presence of arguably the greatest player of all time, I believe anything is possible.

Germany FIFA World Ranking: 1 Coach: Joachim Low Germany’s dominance has only grown since 2014, with the reigning champions qualifying for this year’s World Cup with 10 wins out of 10 matches and scoring an European-jointhigh of 43 goals. Standout players of the 2014 World Cup such as the likes of Toni Kroos and Mats Hummels are now at the peak of their careers (as if they weren’t good enough already back then), and the old guard of Bastian Schweinsteiger, Philipp Lahm, and Miroslav Klose have been replaced by more-than-capable successors in Timo Werner and Leroy Sane among other names. With a squad of their quality and an excellent coach in Low, it’s hard to see Germany not being the third nation to win consecutive World Cups since Italy and Brazil. Let’s all just hope that Marco Reus stays fit for it this time.

Brazil FIFA World Ranking: 2 Coach: Tite Brazil will be looking to redeem themselves after that humiliating exit on their home ground in 2014. Since then, Seleção have improved in nearly every position with the additions of Gabriel Jesus and Casemiro, and the likes of Coutinho, Paulinho, Roberto Firmino, and Alex Sandro staking their claims as top players. Players aside, manager Tite has also played a big part in Brazil’s huge improvement since 2014, and will be aiming to bring Brazil their 5th World Cup.

Spain FIFA World Ranking: 6 Coach: Julen Lopetegui Spain has come a long way since crashing out in the group stages of the 2014 World Cup in Brazil. With their backbone of David de Gea, Sergio Ramos, Pique, Jordi Alba, Carvajal, Iniesta, David Silva, and Koke, as well as outstanding additions like Isco, Asensio and Thiago, they look promising. Spain has regained that dominance in possession – that fluid build-up play (Tiki Taka) and control that made them the powerhouse they were from 2008-2012. It may well be time for Spain to re-establish themselves as the World’s best footballing nation.

Our Dalmore and Manulife team that made this possible!

WINE & DINE

Adam Knox and our GM sharing a drink!

Every whisky brand has a story to tell. On 1 March, Dalmore shared their story with us at Eagle’s View. Their official spokesperson, Adam Knox, walked us through the brand’s journey and its special distillation processes during a free whisky tasting session specially organised by Manulife Singapore. That evening, everyone got to enjoy three different types of whisky – The 18, Cigar Malt Reserve and King Alexander III. Members and guests learnt the proper way to enjoy their whisky, which included “nosing” the drink to relish its true flavour. When called to a vote, the Cigar Malt Reserve was hands down the most popular amongst guests as many loved its refreshing and fruity taste. If you are a fan of Dalmore whisky, don’t miss out on special rates at all our F&B outlets!

Did You Know? The Dalmore brand is now almost synonymous with their iconic Royal Stag emblem. Ever wondered why this is so? Long time ago in 1263, the Chief of the Clan Mackenzie saved King Alexander III from a stag. The King in turn granted Clan Mackenzie the right to bear a 12-pointed Royal Stag crest as a testament of their loyalty and courage. Since then, the crest has been proudly adorned by members of the clan. In 1867, Mackenzie brothers Andrew and Charles took over the Dalmore brand and the symbolic Royal Stag emblem followed all the way till present day.

Awaiting the Dalmore whisky!

Food Hygiene For EVERYONE Good news, Seletarians! Our F&B outlets have passed the Laboratory Test with flying colours! What is "the Laboratory Test"? The Laboratory Test is designed to assess if restaurants and cafes meet the food hygiene criteria set by the Agri-Food and Veterinary Authority (AVA). It is a process that helps to identify if there are any problems with food products or the handling of raw materials in food production. Its objective is to identify contaminants before food is sold to the public. An organisation will have been deemed to meet high levels of hygiene standards if it passes the Laboratory Test. This means that Seletar is now officially certified by the testing unit, Singapore Accreditation Council, and has been given the nod in our food preparation methods. You can now rest assured that our F&B outlets adhere to the strictest hygiene standards! Our Club has passed the following tests: • Hand swabs for chefs at Terrace Kitchen & Bar, Eagle’s View Kitchen, Seletar Kitchen • Ice cube swab at Terrace Kitchen & Bar, Eagle’s View Kitchen, Seletar Kitchen • Food swab at Terrace Kitchen & Bar, Eagle’s View Kitchen, Seletar Kitchen • Equipment swab at Terrace Kitchen & Bar, Eagle’s View Kitchen, Seletar Kitchen

Hygiene Practices Currently Adopted by F&B Staff 1. Tables are cleaned and applied with food graded sanitiser after each meal. 2. Staff will regularly wash their hands with the proper method accorded by NEA guidelines. 3. Table cloth will be cleaned and washed frequently. We are confident of continuously upholding such high hygiene standards and we hope you can give us your support as we strive to do even better!

We take food hygiene very seriously. It is our job to ensure that all our customers enjoy a wonderful dining experience without compromising on hygiene and cleanliness standards. We are delighted to have passed the Laboratory Test and look forward to providing even better service and quality food for our diners! – F&B Manager Khoo Leng Fong
