Singapore: This year’s SMBC Singapore Open has been cancelled due to on-going concerns related to the Covid-19 pandemic in the region.


Organisers of the US$1 million showpiece have announced that the next edition of the tournament will take place in January 2022.

Jointly sanctioned by the Asian Tour and Japan Golf Tour Organisation, the event has traditionally been held each January on the Serapong Course at Sentosa Golf Club, a Facility Member of the Asian Golf Industry Federation (AGIF).


“While it is truly a shame that the tournament won’t be held this year, we have been involved in the discussions throughout the planning process and are fully supportive of the difficult decision that has been made by Sportfive. We shall all look forward to the return of the SMBC Singapore Open in 2022,” said Ross Tan, President of the Singapore Golf Association.
