SINGAPORE - The Singapore Island Country Club's (SICC) New Course is probably one of the most prestigious and challenging courses in the country.

It gives golfers an opportunity to test their skills against a sand-based course that meanders and ripples through rainforests, bunkers and water hazards. It's also the setting for the Integration Cup 2013, presented by UBS, which will be held on July 30.

The tournament was launched last year by tabla! and Tamil Murasu to bring together the Indian and Singaporean golfing community for a day of fun and entertainment. A total of 135 golfers took part in the inaugural tournament, most of whom are returning this year with the intent of improving their scores and bonding over food and drinks.

Mr Dicky Goh, a managing consultant who participated in the tournament with his wife last year, said the golf tournament's intention of gathering the Non-resident Indian community, the local Indians and Singaporeans together was noteworthy.

"I especially like the idea of including the partners/spouses for dinner, to further the integration among the better halves of the community," Mr Goh said.
