I'm fortunate that near my house, there's a range that's kept open by the night watchman/ball seller/drinks seller until the last person leaves. Once, I left at 3:00 am, and there were people around who stayed until 5:00 am.

Bro Cyrano,

w my apologies, should have made it clear. It's in Sunway, at Subang, Malaysia, unfortunately. It's probably too expensive to keep it open 24hrs in Singapore, and may require some permits, etc.

In this range, the watchman is just supposed to keep the place locked up, but because so many hardcore range addicts refuse to go home at closing time, the establishment found they can keep the business going by giving the watchman some boxes of balls and water to sell. So he keeps the lights on until the last person leaves.

i don tink permit is an issue.. maybe more of cost issue.

Perhaps Poh Bros can do a trial at their Punggol Range?.. perhaps on Fridays and Saturdays first?. hehehe

I am pretty sure the electricity cost of the lights from extending operating hours is much more than the revenue generated from a couple of guys who stay late based on Singapore rates.

Not sure what is happening at Sunway ... maybe some arrangement about the electricity prices, but in Singapore, definitely lose big money running the floodlights through the night for just a few guys ....

Actually I will be happy to able to hit balls into nets. Just want to get solid contact for every shot. The ball flight is secondary at my level. Surely that is not too expensive to run a joint like that.
