PostSubject: Golf Lessons Together?   Tue Apr 26, 2011 8:23 pm

Hello there!!

I am thinking of taking golf lessons at Marina Bay Driving Range. Wondering if anyone would like to join me to split the costs?

I'll be emailing the golf school (Star Golf Academy) shortly to ask for one lesson with a local pro on Thursday (8pm or otherwise 9pm). If I like the coach, I might buy an intermediate golf package (every Wednesday or Thursday, 8pm or 9pm). The rates are here:

http://www.stargolf.com.sg/index.php/our-packages/intermediate.

Its obviously cheaper if there are more people. Is anyone interested? We can try one lesson on Thursday, and then take it from there. Message me if you are interested.

Cheers!!

Update for those that PM me. Still waiting on Star Golf to get back to me on whether there's an instructor for tomorrow.

Fingers crossed.

I know lots of ppe who took lessons there. And they had to go for basic lessons again with other coaches to re-learn things.

Hi everyone,

I shared this with Kenny in another post but I'll repeat it here.

Swing Perfection is an indoor golf centre in Killiney Road and we do golf lessons here. It's just be a stone's throw away from Somerset MRT.

Learning in our indoor golf centre has some benefits:

1. Comfortable air-con environment
2. No need to keep buying balls
3. Not so many people watching
4. Conveniently located
5. Full club sets are provided
6. Technology used to show shot data
7. Swing analyzer system that can record & playback your swing in slow motion or frame by frame

Give me a call at 67371321 or 97662874 if you need more info on the lesson pricing and structure.

Ken

I would prefer to see a proper ball flight as a beginner. No offense but golf is an outdoor thing, indoors are more like gathering, meetups etc. I would still recommend a beginner to go for lessons at a range. Better still 1 on 1.

Hi there, count me in!

Unfortunately, i'm only good with Saturday Evenings or Sunday Mornings. I browsed through Asian Golf Centre website and find it pretty impressive.

Anyone here experienced AGC? Thanks

If u asked me, none of the coaches in agc or mbgc is as good as Brett from nsrcc, Alan Kelly from lagunA, Paul Tudor the rss or Joey from kep. I know peoPle who are under them and they have nothing but good stuff to say bout their coaches.

Hey Nientsu

Thanks for that.

That is so kind of you to share. Helpful information to keep in mind.

For those that PM me I had a session with Jamal at MBC on Thursday and came away with a couple of pointers. Definitely still have lots to learn and he says if I relax a little I'm more likely to get a smooth swing. Shouldn't force the shot.

We were talking about maybe continuing together.. Will practice at MBC somtime tomorrow or Monday afternoon for those that would like to meet.

Do PM me if interested.
