I had thought golf shoes are 'not necessary' (same with gloves) until I realised I'm not get proper feet grip on the range (imagine if its on the real deal and the ground is slippery because you don't have proper traction with spikes) and my hands are getting sore and rough for not using a glove.

For some golf courses here in Bangkok, they do rent golf shoes (not sure about Singapore, sorry!) but shoes are like clothes to me so renting them is like wearing clothes of others... But that's me.

Any recommondations of brands or shops that sell shoes that does not hurt the wallet too much? I browsed some golf shoes and was shock at the price tag. $ 200+ for a plain looking white pair.

You can look at sales and stuff like that.

My advice (as a man) is to look at the following:
- Quality & Make (Stitching and all the seams should be good)
- Waterproof-ness (Yes, its a must)
- Weight (You won't want to wear a ton on your feet, not for 18 holes anyway)
- Design and Colour (I put it as last but with the crazy weather these days, you may want to look at shoes of a darker color)

Enjoy your game! Its the only sport that you can wear till the nines AND keep fit at the same time.

golfshoes can be bought for $59 and $69 at sales promotions in Isetan, Pan West Jl Pemimpin or at golfdirect.

...but if you want to skimp then dont be picky with styles, brands and colors at the same time.

Damn it!!! Why i never think of NS NB Shoe NSRCC cannot reject... okie I'll go draw a pair since my golf shoe is coming to an end...

golf shoes ain't ex (50-100 can get a nice pair) so why risk it...

Since I pick up, I golf with golf shoe on... even if I'm on range cos to ensure I'm practise with the same condition as on green...

But even I so ON THE BALL, I still cannot break the BLXXDY 100!!! HA HA HA Smile

Still I like the game... Smile

hmm... I wonder if there should be a reason for me to chalk up number of post? Would be good if you can enlighten since I am new to this forum.

I thought this is a good place to learn and ask. If it bothers you so much, i shall stop posting to this topic. Thanks to all the nice ppl responded with advises i'd manage to get info on stuff a new learner to golf like me needs to start in a pretty short time.


Cheers!

dorisha,

I don't think you were chalking up posts for any reason whatsoever. To a beginner, buying golf shoes can be a monumental task. Although I've never veered from Adidas shoes, I must say Ecco and Footjoy (only the more premium models) give a good bang for buck..

Don't pay any attention to JGoh and his holier-than-thou attitude.. I think i speak for many around here when i say that you can learn plenty from other nicer people around ... Please feel free to ask around on whatever baffles you about the game... I'm sure you will soon learn the ropes from the more gracious people around here (which incidentally, is everyone else other than Mr.-i've-got-a-carrot-up-my-ass over here..)

Apart from JGoh, the rest of us were all beginners once, so all we're here to do is to help one another maintain sanity through this journey...

Enjoy your stay here..

Dorisha,
My apologies, i take back my post...
Didnt mean to be poky..
I thought everyone was extra nice to answer and advise, and then you said you were "joking coz you actually already bought a pair of shoes"

Enjoy your stay here... You will find lots of info, and feel free to ask..

Adidas should be quite good but I haven't tried it since I got my FootJoys at a single go. Don't want to spend money on 1 pair only to spend money again on a 2nd pair later.

I like the adidas tour 360 shoes but cuz I have broad feet,footjoy has the extra-wide models that suit me better.
Somehow I also find FJ shoes to last longer but I have frends that say the other way round.

my apologies too, guess it is a matter of taking words out if context. The joke was on wearing a pair of ns issued new balance shoes so that I 'd play on nsrcc without the need to get a pair of golf shoes. Razz

And thanks for all the kind posts here. I should be alright till I get my PC at the end of my beginner lessons. Armed with a pair of footjoy gloves, a demo ping 7 iron, a pair of $49 Adidas shoes, and lots of tigerbalm, i am motivated to get my swing consistent, before I start drooling at the shiny clubs and pretty shoes again.
