Hi everyone! I'm Derek aka stagedbrute. Just picked up golf almost 2 months ago. Been undergoing daily training whilst i was in Thailand for a month, have also gone to a course there once. I go to the Toa Payoh Driving Range to practice shots now, anyone from here go there? Would love to pick up some great tips haha Very Happy

i play at Toa Payoh once a week, usually after work. But my swing is very poor, hardly can offer any help. But i like to watch people play, and observe how they hit the balls. I find you can pick up some tips by watching.

I play at Toa Payoh too Smile But i do so usually in the morning or early afternoon due to the happy hour promotion lol. Yes, same here, i tend to walk around and watch others play during rest as well. Are you planning on taking lessons?

Ah always wondered.... how wrong was I

Once upon a time I saw two flights: one was described as Vegas flight - the other was BVA flight. I always thought the one labeled Vegas as the more dangerous.

Hi Ed,

Same here, i started playing about 2 months ago as well, but i went for daily lessons for about a month.I stopped going to TPY range 2 weeks ago, cause i feel the balls there are very old. I now go to the range at MBGC, where the balls are newer and cheaper. Hopefully, i might get to see you there!
