The breathtaking natural environment at Tropicana Golf & Country Resort draws migratory birds from as far away as Siberia

Tropicana Golf & Country Resort (TGCR), which covers 625 acres, sustains a rich plant life that benefits the environment by absorbing and filtering rain, minimising noise pollution and providing a healthy habitat for wildlife. Whether you’re out on the course playing golf or just taking a stroll around the resort’s gorgeous grounds, you’re almost certain to come across some beautiful birds and hear their many different sounds, from gentle chirps to delightful whistles. The calls and colours of these birds make visiting TGCR even more exciting, in addition to the already amazing golf course, restaurants and other attractions that the resort has to offer.

The Oriental Magpie-Robin can often be heard chirping joyfully near the Golfers Lounge and Twenty7 Restaurant, while the Zebra Dove and Long-Billed Pipit will delight your ears with their chorus out on the fairways. The resort is also a good place to observe the Little Egret, Mangrove Heron, Painted Stork, Eastern Great Egret and Barn Swallow, the most abundant and widely distributed swallow species in the world. The Kingfisher with its brilliantly bright plumage can also be spotted at TGCR, particularly near the Red Flame trees on East Course 1 Hole 4 and elsewhere around the course.

You can also see a flock of the Asian Openbill Stork on the expanse of land that extends from West Course Holes 12 to 15 as they wander around the fairways and greens in the morning light. East Course Holes 1 Holes 4 and 5, and East Course 2 Hole 11 are also popular resting spots for these avian travellers. Some of these feathered beauties can be seen along the lakes where they hunt for food like fish and insects. In fact, if you are lucky, you could even get to witness the majestic Brahminy Kite in full predator mode as it soars over a lake in search of fish to devour. Another migratory species that is common to the Tropicana area is the Oriental Honey Buzzard, which travels long distances from Siberia all the way to Indonesia! Thanks to the abundance of plant and animal life, bird species such as the Sunda Pygmy Woodpecker, Rufous Woodpecker, Striated Heron as well as a flock of Asian Glossy Starlings have nesting grounds within the resort. This demonstrates how well-balanced the ecosystem is at TGCR.
