PostSubject: Newbie relocating to Singapore   Thu May 05, 2011 5:57 pm

Hi,

I am re-locating to Singapore from the US within the month (as soon as my EP gets done).
I have been lurking on this site since March, when I went there to visit my new project.
Typical weekend hack. HCP 17.
Looking to rip up some Singapore rough (never in the fairway).
BTW, Is there a special discount on greens fee for not using the fairway?

You are talking about Golf Range, you hit the ball and dont use the fairway am I right?

He is making a joke Iron Eagle...
Basically just trying to say that since he is always in the rough... Does he get a chance to pay lesser green fees cos he doesn't utilise the fairways!

Which means less maintenance for the green keeper

How long are you guys? It seems like everyone is carrying stf or X-stf shafts.
The worst is playing with three bombers and it looks like you are laying up.

hehe.. well if that is the case then I think you should just apply for a job to maintain the rough grass Smile you might get your green fee waive but will only be able to play on certain time windows as the rest o fthe employee cheers

No lah ... like in any golfing community, there is a mix of long hitters and not so long hitters. There are also guys (and gals) who are not long, but deadly straight and putt well.

I personally play with very light (85gm) R flex steel shafts, and while I wish I could hit as far as the other guys, I'll just play with what I have and try to enjoy the game. However, it does make it more fun if you play off a tee that you can reach to green in regulation. If not, just take it that the course has a lot of Par 5s and you are getting great value for money.

lol!

I switched over to graphite a few years ago and it did help me with my swing spped. At my age, my body doesn't turn like it used to. Plus, I hurt my back in the Navy almost 30 years ago and it started to bother me after 40.
