Looks like there is a new driving range at Punggo. Drove past last weekend and saw the nettings. Seems like only two storey high and wondering when it will be officially opened. My CFO was suggesting that next time I can go range when visiting my inlaws. Now I don't have the excuse not to visit liao.

They have just raised the nettings but haven't seen the lights yet. Not sure when will open. Hopefully very soon.

If u know where's the big Chinese temple and the florists, it's just beside them. Won't miss one.
I'm checking the construction status everyday. Anybody know who's the operator?

Think it is Punggol East and Mitatr has correctly pointed out that it is very near the temple.

One thing I hope is they build sufficient parking lots or at least fence up the range so that people won't park at range and then goto the parks/makan there.

If the Poh bros are tkaing over the new ponggol range, will they introduce that 'microchip in the golf ball' system which make the ball so damn hard?



Of so, that wud be bad

if Poh Bros r running the range, sure they will introduce the chip in ball but in TP range, you have the option of both no chip and have chip ball.

i have never and will never play the balls with chip bcos i find no meaning in the game.

i only care whether i play well on the greens and not trying to hit the hard ball into a target at range and score points and win prizes on competiton days.

we just need a range with good qulaity balls, mats, clean environment and bonus if the food is nice. no need all these fancy stuff.

Totally agree...

unless their chip can tell me how far my balls fly to...

else their current game does not create any interest in me...
