In the good old days, the soccer field doubled up as a swimming pool and fishing pond whenever it rained. Members got much more than what their $2 membership was worth whenever it flooded. These memories would remain etched in some of our members’ minds forever.
On 29 April 1955, Mr S C Macey and some residents of Serangoon Gardens established the then Serangoon Gardens Sports Club.
Mr Macey – the developer of Serangoon Gardens Estate at that time – donated the present 22,684 square metres of land stretching from the junction of Hemsley Avenue to Kensington Park Road as a gathering place for residents staying in the area.
Membership was exclusive to residents of Serangoon Gardens Estate and the majority of the members were British servicemen, who would gather at the Club for soccer and hockey matches or a game of billiards, darts, bridge or tombola.
But when the British forces pulled out of Singapore, they took many of the Club’s members along with them. As a result, the Club suffered from a lack of maintenance and its condition deteriorated as the years went by.
The People Factor
In 1981, the Club was given a new lease of life under the encouragement and foresight of Dr Lau Teik Soon (Member of Parliament from 1976 to 1996 for Serangoon Gardens and Thomson GRC). His idea of developing the Club’s property transformed the Club into one that is relevant to its times. Serangoon Gardens Country Club was then born.
We believe that our people make all the difference, especially when we rely on them to take care of the needs of our valued members. In short, they form the cornerstone of our organisation. To gain a competitive edge, we invest in our human capital and nurture our staff by helping them to excel through training courses and individual career development plans.
