Hey all, I'm new to golf, but hopefully i can play like tiger woods one day... (therefore the nick =)).

oh just wanted ot ask, how much do you guys typically practice on the driving range in a usual day.

And, how long should i practice at the driving range before heading to the course?

Welcome!

I usually try to range once a week, 150 balls at a go. First 100 balls for various clubs (I tend to focus more on long irons and drivers), and the last 50 balls solely for chipping practice

I assume that you got your PC already? If yes then I think can go anytime liao. Playing on course is very different from ranging. Executive Golf Course at Mandai is a good place to start and play around (and a good place to practice short game IMO).

HTH!
