The Club area comprises of a total of 174,000sqm and is not only home for the Swiss Club but also for the Swiss, German, Dutch and Korean Schools, the British Club and the Institute of Engineers.

The Swiss Club is an elegant and family-friendly retreat surrounded by lush greenery, offering a unique setting in the middle of the jungle with century old trees. Kids can roam freely and enjoy the various activities in nature. The Club is determined to preserve this environment and ambiance for generations to come.

The Club offers a wide range of sports and other activities and is continually developing its various facilities. 2021 also marks the year of completion of the renovation of the CLUBHOUSE, which has stood the test of time, since its inception in 1927. Everything within the Clubhouse interior has undergone a much-needed facelift. The exterior facade has however, remained untouched to preserve its colonial splendor.

The GUESTHOUSE with its nicely appointed rooms offers comfortable accommodation for visitors in a natural setting. The RIFLE LOUNGE in the Clubhouse and the conference rooms at the PAVILION can be rented for private and corporate events. Attendees can dine at the ARBENZ and stay at the Guesthouse, making the Swiss Club an ideal setting for regional meetings.

Last but not least, several culinary options round up the Club’s offerings for members and guests at the PERGOLA and JUNGLE COVE (casual setting / international favourites), the RIFLE LOUNGE and ARBENZ restaurants (fine dining / western cuisine).

A Glance at our Past

The Swiss Club was founded on 29 June 1871 by Mr. Otto Alder and his friends. It was then known as the Swiss Rifle Shooting Club of Singapore, as friends gathered with their rifles for serious shooting practice in the forest at Balestier Road.

Almost 30 years later, the Club moved to its present location. Until the 1980s, the Club maintained a 300-metre shooting range targeting the peak of Bukit Tinggi. But members and guests did not only come to the Club to shoot: during these early years the Club was also a home away from home for its members and many friendships were formed
