Erm.. depending on what "beginner" means.
I thought I was "beginner" but apparently I was super super duper beginner who can't shot for his life Very Happy

Anyway to answer your question - Executive course mandai?

West Area: Jurong Country Club, Executive Golf course ( 2 x 5 holes) - Condition very similar to an actual 18 holes golf course, decently maintained

Central: Marina Bay Goif Course, 9/ 18 holes - need to take a $10 swing test prior to entry to the course if you do not have a H'cap card

East: Changi NSRCC Golf Club, Par 3 Executive Course - Nice layout course with 9 varying Par 3 holes, ideal for beginners learning how to tee-off

Hope the above helps! Very Happy

It's a 5 holes executive course, but you can play 2 rounds.

Weekdays is $30+ and weekends is $50+

Anyone can play... as they dun check PC or H'cap

As a noob, I've played at both mandai executive and JCC. I've been told that Mandai uses cowgrass, hence not as much like normal course... but being a noob i cant tell the difference. Laughing

JCC is definitely nice. Quite well maintained, but I think probably still a touch less awesome than their real course. Have yet to try seletar or NSRCC...

NSRCC is using proper grass. Last I went there long time ago my only gripe is the condition of the green. Its too sandy and too slow. Not sure how it is now. Anybody ?

Mandai Executive is quite good for beginners especially on weekdays. At times, you can have the whole course to yourself on weekdays.

Happy golfing

JCC Executive is a walk-in course, just pay and play. No need for swing test.

Weekends tend to be more crowded...mornins are prob the most crowded time? Afternns might have lesser traffic, but hotter though =)

But i guess its more enjoyable at NSRCC than mandai given its condition.

Only thing I will say is that NSRCC Exec course can be considered slightly challenging to a beginner

Agree with nsrcc par 3. Great condition and variety. Some holes are quiet tough so it is a challenge too. Great for those who don't have much time to play. Sat/Sun afternoons.

Mbgc white tee for 18holes practice on weekdays. Easier than the rest due to its flatness, very wide yet gently undulating fairways, also gently sloping wide greens, ample area for laying ups, short trees and free relief from the bushes!

JB, most courses no need PC.

Singapore, you can go NSRCC par 3 changi, do a free swing test.

or Marina bay golf course, likewise need to do swing test, but the test will set you back by $10 already. (exclude GST)
