Hi,
I knew that there are many friends in this forum that joined a club or even more so that they can access golf course at discounted prices.
Not sure if this is against the rules, are we able to share which club is worth joining taking into account the facilities and course fee.

Malaysia clubs should be cheaper than singapore and can also be considered as a discussion topic. Thanks

If you have club membership, playing is free for members. Only pay buggy. If walk then completely free.

Also if the club has a driving range, yours balls are cheaper.

However, as golfers I don't believe you will be happy with one course only. You will have itchy backside to try other courses. So until I can afford to join many courses in Singapore. I still go to Malaysia to pay when I am free instead of going to my home course.

There is also monthly fee involved. So if you are calculative, the membership fee is enough for 1 to 2 weekday game a month in Malaysia or Marina bay.

Unless you are dam free to play golf 2-3 times a month, membership will not be very worth if you count in terms of money only. Of course membership has its priviledges and I do not regret my membership even though I don't even play one 18 holes a month. I rather go Malaysia to play since most of my kakis dont have membership. I mostly use my membership for walking 9 holes in the evenings less than once a week.

indeed, the mentality of most golfers is to try as many different courses as possible. Each course is unique - the level of difficulty and the scenery. Having said that, i don't think any of us will get bored with playing just one course so easily. remember that when you play on the course, every stroke is different from the last time you played the same hole.

do note too that a local club membership has affiliation to other golf clubs both local and overseas. So you do get the chance to try other courses.

The most important consideration would be finding golf kakis and how often you would get to use the club for your golfing and other leisure.

I just came back from playing at Ria Bintan. the ocean course is breathtaking! It's really enjoyable to play there. so relaxing with a caddie to follow you around.

I think NSRCC also affiliated to Ponderosa. Can play for RM100.

Seems like for NSRCC quite worth the money. In JB got a few affiliated. In Singapore got two locations to golf. Dam cheap. Too bad I not member.

I have never used the reciprocal club system but heard its quite troublesome too as all the members in the flight must also be members.
