Any like-minded new golfers?

1) Start out at SG local public courses (9-hole)
2) Proceed to 18-hole courses in JB
3) Explore 18-hole courses in Batam/Bintan
4) Make friends with the 9 & 18-hole courses in SG

Hi nitesun, sounds good too. But not pro, n straight away hit 18-hole..quite wasteful?

My 2 cents worth ... spend time on the chipping green learning how to chip, pitch and putt.

Also, find a club you can tee off reliably with, may not necessarily need to be driver, wood or hybrid.

Good point.

Noted. Of course, range n practice of chipping n putting need to be done outside of course-time.

My worst at current is bunker shots. The rest, still can handle pretty well. I'm going for accuracy over distance, for now.
