Most of the time I goes to Bishan/sin ming golf range, cos I can find a bay most of the time,
and I am taking my lesson there too...
I tried Marina Bay a few times, and usually its jam pack in the evening.

Hi there,

SSN is Starry Starry Night at Marina Bay range every Wed where a few of us would meet up for range, chit chat (mostly) and also getting poisoned in golf equipment.

Haha. No IC but just a bunch of passionate golfers around to welcome you.

"Dont bluff" is meant for me..

Length matters, but short game equally important in golf...

DW,
Whatever outcome, i guarantee you will enjoy your game..
It's probably also the only time we "drink and drive" at 10am.

hahaha... yeah that's what important...

I think we need to make it more fun. Make rule there's no drinking on the course except if the drink contains at least 10% alcohol or more....

I think we will laugh more.... And I think I will need those Magnetic GPS located balls Razz

SSN is gathering of GR - well, I only ever came once (due to work, most wednesdays I'm not in Singapore!)
Last time I was there, I got an impression that there are regulars: miss moon, sunny, asahi, mloy, wilkang... bring your clubs, you can hit a few balls and get some tips as well Wink

Hi Anfieldknight,
Welcome to the golf fraternity.
You have arrived, yes!
They say as you go up the corporate ladder, you ball gets smaller.
From football to golf ball, it's a big jump up the ladder.
Congratulations!!

Do note that playing ball alone is never fun.
Golf is no exception.'
It usually takes at two balls to play...

Do join us soon to practise on Wednesday nights at the driving range (starry starry night)
And at the golf courses in JB, before you get your PC and handicap card.
There will be many in GR willing to give you a hand, and a leg (kicking you when necessary).

Happy Golfing!!
