Bidadari Disc Golf course still generating media buzz in Singapore

We've been following the development of the Bidadri Disc Golf Course on these pages, and not too long ago it got recognized by one of the media powerhouses on the island - Singapore Press Holdings, publisher of the Straits Times newspaper.

My former employer, managed through high-ranking national elites, has several media arms. One of them, Razor TV, ran a two-part 10-minute news story about this crazy new game in Singapore, and the course I threw together back in 2009.

Thanks for the shoutout, Lance!

It's the second time of late that the course has gotten some public attention, having graced the pages of Timeout Singapore late last year. Sadly, Bidadari's days as a disc golf home are likely in the final stages. The development board seems to be moving fast, and already missed a deadline to break ground at the end of last year. The course will most likely be buried, where 100s of other restless souls lost their eternal home when the land was exhumed more than a decade ago...

Coincidentally, long time groundsman Isaac Souweine is on his way back to North America and should be packing it up any day now. I'm sure the course will remain in good hands until the end.
