Went yesterday for a game, green fees are the same but the trolley rental deposit has increased to $10 instead of $7 previously.

Is Seletar CC taken over the course and range? Any upgrades to course. Hopefully can improve the drainage there.

Tuesday I cycle to Ponggol Range park my MTB nearby
security told me to park outside, I told him, Can, but if the bike
lost you pay me $2k I'll do as you say! finally he allow me.

Drive there they want to charge parking, their business is really Bad
not many golfers practising. Whereas Bishan and OCC alway crowded
after office hours!

Parking rates for cars cost $0.60 per 30 minutes. Not worth it at all.
Range balls cost at $6.00 for 90 balls.

Played at Punggol range on 18 Jan 2012 at 8pm. The place not packed with golfers (which is good). The mat is new (which is good). Dunno how come I can easily hit 200 metres for my driver and 4 iron (is the distance wrongly placed)? The mats were placed at appropriate distance (unlike some driving range where the mats were closely placed).

Ponggol range uses carpet instead of grass, so when ball hit the ground it bounces
off further. No surprise I hit further with my Ping G15 driver!

Happy Chinese Year to all!!!

going back to mandai. Heard from the staff there that Seletar whom took over the area is doing some major planning to upgrade the area.
Not sure will they add in another 9 holes? or extend the length of the fairway?

No wonder the reception area look empty at Mandai,
the range also pretty empty.
