Inflation! Cost of things went up. Salaries, parts, electricity, etc.... would be the reason. cyclops

Unless u can afford to buy other clubs or you would prefer to go Malaysia and play, if not, still lppl. Just don't commit too many years into the term membership to keep ur options open.

Another reason why I won't want to renew my membership.. Suspect

I won't mind paying $12 more if:

1. I can play a game at changi in less than 4 hours instead if 5....
2. The halfway houses offer decent hot food, and not cold fish cakes most of the time...
3. The green speed is consistent across the holes..
4. They change the carpet in the changing room cos they stink after all these years... What a Face

Besides these... I like the challenging courses, the ever friendly and helpful bags boys, and the car wash and vacuum service by Colin & co... cheers cheers

With so many of you guys playing there how to stop going????? Basketball
cheers

Wrote to NSRCC and complain and show them an example
if I play 2 x weekday and 1 x weekend. It's going to cost me S$9,200.00 per year excluding term member fee. For private club is only S$2,000.00 per year excluding membership fee.
Basically it will cost us S$7,200 more per year to play at NSRCC.
Here is the reply from Goh Ying Ying
Firstly, you have used a frequency of 12 times play a month, which is on the high side. Most of our active golfers play an average of 4 to 6 games a month. On this count, the Club has also done its own computation and we do not deny that for a golfer who plays at least 12 times a month, it may be cheaper for him to purchase a membership of another private golf Club. All this while, should any potential member indicate to us that he plays the golf game at this rate of frequency, the membership department would also highlight the cost implications to him, prior to accepting his application for membership.
I just renewed my NSRCC membership to 2016 Smile. In the end we could only bite the bullet and join Raffles Country Club last week. Every game is only S$21.70, 14mins per game instead of 7mins. Hardly any jam. Really disappointed with NSRCC

We got it at S$40-41k. You need to call the membership dept to ask them for the list of Seller and negotiate directly with the Seller.

In my opinion, if you have the time and luxury to play 3 times a week, you could be :

a) your own boss
b) unemployed
c) Aloyboy

if you're (a) or (c), I really don't think any price hike is gonna stop you from playing more golf anyway.. Smile

I asked if NSRCC could consider helping member to Sell/Return and get some refunds
Here is his reply
Quote from Goh Ying Ying NSRCC
The memberships held by NSmen in NSRCC are term memberships and as such non-transferable
Basically tell me to go fly Kite.

I ma pretty sure somehwere in the T&C linked to your membership, there is a clause that says its non refundable and the club has the right to amend prices and other rules it so deem fit.

but despite being "unemployed", you splurged $40k on raffles membership in order to play golf, that doesnt sound like someone who needs a job Wink

Hi, if anyone is a NSRCC member, please join " Nsrcc members against exorbitant fee hike" Facebook and collectively push for a review of the fees hike.
