Does one even take fuel consumption cost vs parking charges into consideration?
If I were to stay at Punggol have to drive to OCC or MBGC to and fro... Wouldn't that cost more than merely driving to the nearest range and practicing?

Then there would be other cost involve also mah... Like car maintenance cost, drive further means must service more often... Hurt resale value of car cos of higher mileage...

There are more cost incurred that paying $1.80 per hour to drive somewhere further just for "free" parking!

As they said... Nothing is "FREE"

If not... Find a Taxi Driver that plays golf... Stays near you... So can jio him/he


r to range session...

Bishan is not that far,u can think of it.

I have seen taxi drivers at the range before... Even on the golf course!!!
NSRCC (Changi) has a few

I go to range to get rid of all the bad shots before the next actual game.
Ohh also to see any chiobus at the range!lol
Maybe we should start a poll on which range has the most chiobus!

I'll start the ball rolling, I vote for Greenfairways and Sembawang!

having to pay for parking can be quite a put-off, but for that area, that's the only range available, so i think ppl staying in that area will still frequent the place. some more the mats are new, lights are bright, and always have mats available. Smile been there once, thought it was quite nice, just that the ball dispenser is very s.l.o.w...

keppel club is a little bit different, it is a country club and keppel club has BFG that you can self poison yourself... Laughing Laughing . punggol doesn't really have anything attractive.... unless you live in punggol... if not the parking is really quite put off....
