  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 cour
  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 !

  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

  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

  17. Guys...think you will all called me a nut..but in my club, NSRCC Changi location, where every 7 minutes a flight ( 701am to 430pm) will be teeing off in our 3, 9 holes course. Ball will fly all over the places and if you know where to find them.....Titleist, Noodle, Srixion etc....average i will find around 20 a round as we have to wait for the front to clear. A round of 18 holes on buggy will take around 5 hours to finish. Even will traffic marshal chasing ..... My record find is 68 a day.

  18. Hi ! I am back from another golfing trip to our neighbour country ...Malaysia. This time to a very lovely and old town called Malaccca, a golf course called Orna Golf. Here is our photos ! Played 96 from white tee. https://picasaweb.google.com/110804376999004138919/RDGOrnaGolfClub21Apr2011#5598679741741074242 Enjoy everyone !
  19. Bro ! You can play golf with anytime !!!
  20. This type of situation best inform the club discipline committees or green committees. It is dangerous to take a shot if you could see players infront or on the green. The player hitting the ball just say sorry or with all sorts of excuses but the unlucky player could be in ICU..... In my home club, we view this type of play very seriously, a player if being complained or hit a ball near or over another player head, didn't shout FORE if one ball goes OB...will get 3 months to 1 year of suspension for club members and 1 year banned notice for visitors. The main booker will get suspensio
  21. I always have a sleeve of new ProV in my bag, will bring 1 dozen of preown balls from last games. If my first 3 holes is in good shape, i will take out the new ball to hit, if 1st hole double par (4 over a par 4), will used the oldest ball in my bag....
  22. I personally would welcome and enjoy playing with any golfers who just join flight with me and my regular golfing friends for the 1st time. I would be able to learn somethings from the good players or just enjoy the morning stroll with a beginner golfers. The question is WHO will truly enjoy or benefited from a join flight with a lousy player like myself (Hcp 22).??? Based on a true events happen in NSRCC Changi one Monday morning, myself, Patrick and Golfiekids met for a morning stroll with buggy. Dr Yeo couldn't make it so my slot was release to the golfing counter. A Hcp 8 pla
  23. I guess is theat the drainage for par 3 are usually not that well made, or course designer design a par 3 on the lowest part of the land....(cutting cost maybe), so all par 3 if we are on a buggy on course club, it is not allow to go on course on par 3 holes. In my part of the world, Singapore, Malaysia, Batam and even Thailand...all par 3 are off limit to buggies. Some course are buggies on track the whole year long.
