PostSubject: Where is the best golf simulation centre in Singapore and why?   Mon Apr 04, 2011 1:31 pm

Dear all,

Recently, I am seeing a lot of golf simulation centres appearing all over the island. There are some centres that offer drinks; provide coaching; allow you to practise in private etc.

I am just wondering which is the best golf simulation centre thus far and why e.g. is it the price, ambience or services etc. Please feel free to share your comments or even personal experiences practising at these centres...

Thanks!

Cheers,

I have tried MaxSwing golf at Orchard Central a few times liao, they have the Callaway FT-IZ clubs and are located near my workplace, so .....
price is 60buck per hour....they do have a coach i think. drinks and beer is available if u lose a round Smile

the other one I went to is CityGolf at One Raffles Place, the view is sweeee. they have a lunch promotion where u get to play one hour for 75 bucks and come with free one bucket of beer or two set lunches.

tats all I have, hope it helps

I could write an essay on this ...

It really depends on what you are looking for, ambience, space, accuracy of system, nice graphics, attractive wait staff, free parking ... list goes on.

End of the day, go to each one at least once and judge for yourself I guess.

Vgolf located at Plaza by the Park (next to Bras Brasah MRT). They have once of the most intuitive direct putting setups and terrain simulation.

You may have ball above feet or ball below feet etc.. depending on your previous shot.

Been to swing perfection at killiney road.
very spacious but since thats the only simulation centre i been to, i cant really compare.
But to me, very comfortable at least for my wife as well who had to spend the 2 hours looking at me hit the golf balls.
They have 3 bays to play from together with 2 private rooms for the shy ppl.
Think they have something like the trackman to analyse your golf swing. Theres one bay with a camera in front of you to capture your swing on video as well.
For all other bays, the computer will indicate your swing spead, distance, swing path and spin rate to name a few.
The distances were pretty accurate to me. The simulation was pretty realistic and you can even hear birds chirping or waves hitting (u willl notice it when someone else is hitting his shot)
putting was abit tricky for me though. Not too sure if its the same for all other centres.
Its 4 m to the screen and so you need to gauge your strength for this 4m prior to the ball moving forward from then on. but with a little practice it should be ok.
I believe they carry nike clubs ranging from cavity back to blades. i was kiasu so i brought my own clubs anyway =)

they have a bar there (always a good thing) and you can order food from any of the eating places along killiney road and you can have it in within the centre itself.

As for eye candy...hmm..for the guys, if you are lucky there could be some OLs hitting the place after work. When i went there there was one.

for the ladies...you can look for their resident pro. In my wife's (and mine) opinion he's pretty good looking. Think she remembered that he was featured in Cleo's 50 most eligible bachelor.

anyway, overall a great place to hang out with frens for a rd of fun golf.

cheers =)

Hi there,

I work for Greens on Screens Indoor Golfing Centre, which is located at 37 Duxton Road. We have just opened 3 months ago, and while this may appear to be a biased opinion let me tell you why Greens on Screens is the better Golf Simulator in Singapore. We use what is widely regarded as the most accurate swing analyzer on the market, as our system is made by the inventors of the swing analyzer systems, GolfTek. The sensor system is located at the tee off point, and captures the 5 stages of your swing before and on impact with the ball. The post shot analysis then details club face angle, swing path, ball speed and carry, club speed and many other features of your swing, allowing you to adjust yourself to gain the perfect swing. I've had several people who come in expecting this to be like many of the other simulators they have experienced in Singapore, but leave truly amazed at the technology. We have F&B services as well at our Pitch 'n' Chips Cafe. I invite anyone to come down and see what our place has to offer. We definitely set ourselves apart from everyone else in our style, technology and service. If you would like any more information please contact me at 81017370 or karuna.tuli@yamseng.biz

Hi Karuna Tuli...Welcome to GR.

Thanks for introducing Greens on Screens indoor golfing centre.

Maybe you will like to start a new thread in "Golf Courses & Ranges".
Please also put up pictures if any and any ongoing promotions.

Thanks Smile

CityGolf or Urban Fairways - only sim worth playing is Full Swing, the korean sims are no good IMO Smile

While full swing may be the better known simulator, i think you should try Golftek's technology first-it's american as well. They are the company that invented the swing analyzer- the accuracy is incredible.
