The ball came from the nearby Tanah Merah Country Club.

Changi Airport Group has released a statement regarding the incident.

“Changi Airport Group (CAG) regrets this unfortunate incident, which has never happened at the Jurassic Mile before. Assistance was rendered immediately to the visitor last evening, and CAG is in contact with the family to check on her condition.

CAG is looking into additional ways to further minimise the risk of stray golf balls heading towards the Jurassic Mile, such as putting up nettings in that area.”

Responding to queries from Mothership, Tanah Merah Country Club also issued a statement expressing sadness at the turn of events:

"Tanah Merah Country Club is very sorry to hear that a visitor was hit by a stray golf ball along the Jurassic Mile track.

We are already in contact with the Changi Airport Group (CAG), the developer of the Jurassic Mile track, and they are looking into enhancing the safety features of the track. We are working closely with the CAG in this regard. One possibility being explored is putting up nettings in that area to prevent further accidents."
