  1. Think i am in the wrong country for golf....i am a 100 percent Singaporean, been born in Singapore, work and played. Singapore is a very small country...roughly the size of long Island. In a small place, the greens fees is amazing.....my own golf club which is own by the Ministry Of Defence for Singaporean who did our 2 1/2 years of National Service to our Country. National Service Resort & Country Club charges weekday USD $30 for a round of golf. Guest pay USD $80....which is by our standard the cheapest Other private clubs which hosted the Barclay and HSBC Championship courses like Sentosa are members clubs and for guest is USD $150 for weekday and weekend USD $250 green fees....other private golf clubs average weekday green fees USD $100. Buggy fees not included. Many of my golf buddies either travelled to neighbour country like Johore, Malaysia Southern state, an 2 hour drive from Singapore. weekday average USD $15 and weekend USD $50 to play golf. Sadly many are giving up golf and go into other sports like Darts, Badminton, Tennis and Table Tennis.... Happy Golfing everyone !!
  2. Thanks for sharing, i enjoy reading the old and new development in golf equipments and their designs all this years. Myself started golf in 2002 and i started with a 300cc driver to today a Nike VR_S 9.5 degree driver. But i still enjoy my old Callaway Big Bertha irons alot. As a social golfer and trying not to make a fool of myself during company of charity golf. I guess having a pro to teach me is very important. Good read ! Cheers !
  3. Try this in my club...the club manager recorded down all our membership numbers....but we had great fun! Thanks for sharing...Oh the balls were all over the place...
  4. hahahaha thanks for sharing......i was very those to many incidents.....
  5. Hahahahaha....Thanks for sharing....it actually reminded me when i was serving the army in my country. Every Singaporean male reach 18 years old need to serve the Nation, we called this National Service. This National Duties lasted for 3 years. And another 13 years of reservist which lasted 2 to 3 weeks each year. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Conscription_in_Singapore
  6. I need help on my putting......thanks in advance for your advise. Need to brush up before my duel with regular golf buddy Uncle Lau putting problem :- My putting action is a simple just like a Chinese brush, brushing thru. Lately got a lovely putter from a good friend of mine. A odyssey white steel number 5, mallet type, heavy and straight. lately i notice when i putt the ball, the ball would roll out and follow by a bounce, once or twice before it continue toward the intended target. My woes starts when any or putter length short distant putt, the ball always bounce off line. Could it be the Red Indian and not the arrow ???
  7. For me, i have 3 sets of golf clubs...i played very regular at home club.....i always switch my 3 sets to play and i enjoy taking them out for a spin. Buying a new or desire sets are not always my first priority as my budget is tight. I can wait for a desire set in 5 to 10 years time, i am not in a hurry to change. By than, the preowned sets pricing will be just nice. At my age, able to play golf with friends and loved one is already a Blessing. I don't mind if i have time to try different golf course as guest with my golfing buddies Oversea course if i got time. Yes you can say i am willing to spend a little more to enjoy and admire the lovely layout of different course...once a while. It just like bring your loved one to different restaurant to eat. I am from the old school, so i won't keep changing clubs. I belong to Golfer B
  8. Thanks guys...i don't know how to click for a poll question..can Admin help me/ Thanks !
  9. Golf Sets or Golf Games ??? Golfer A, this golfer loves to buy new golf sets, Driver, irons, wood, putter, the latests in town or just to change clubs as he pleased. If he can sleep with his golf sets, he will. But he will not spend more than certain amount to play a good golf course, anything more than his home club, he will give a miss. He continue to change clubs but only play at his home club. Reason:- rather pay for a good golf sets and keep it than to spend money for a game which last 4 to 5 hours. Golfer B, this golfers owns only one or two golf sets he loved, he would not spend money to buy the latest or the best golf sets whichever he can afford. But he is willing to bring his beloved golf sets and played in Top golf course beside his own club. He is willing to travel oversea and spends lots of money for golf tour to exotic golfing destination. His golf sets are almost 20 years old..... Which type of golfer are you ? golfer A and B are just fictional characters for discussion.
  10. Hi ! Currently i am using a set of 1992 Callayway BigBertha irons. I loved my clubs !
  11. Yo bro...i am your neighbour down under.... Yes i too was attracted to the vast knowledge here, enjoy your stay here as much as i did ! Teh Tarik Pernas
