Er... No, not on my Wii. And no, not pro. But it's a range nonetheless, with real golf balls and nets. I think it's only about 50m long, with some target practice. I'll try and take a photo of it.

Sometimes is the crowd tt makes the range visit unpleasant. I particularly had bad experiences at Mandai.
1) Ppl blasting music while hitting. (can u believe tt?!)
2) Uncles & coaches talking damn bloody loud...(prob the regulars there & I'm sure they r shareholders... If not y so ya-ya)
3) 'Free coaching'
4) Smoking... I hate most....

Wa.. The music England one or KTV one??

The rest sounds like the range in bukit timah man !! lol!

I think it's crazy to let golfers go out there.. Legally, if one guy trips over and knock his head, I wonder what kinda insurance they have for compensation....

I agree. Bishan range is getting really bad. although parking is free, the carpark is almost always full during evenings / night. and the worst part is that it's not bcos of golfers, but ppl who go to bishan park or the nearby coffeeshop.

as for the golfing bays, the management has decreased the distance between each bay by so much such that each bay is so close to the next one. so much so that they have to put signs to warn ppl to watch out for the other golfer's backswing! Essentially, u can't swing your driver with peace of mind, bcos u'r afraid of hitting the guy behind, and u are also in constant fear that the guy in front of u may take ur head off with his club (esp if he / she is a wild-swinging type of golfer)

Again, Isn't there some kinda control or governing body to maintain some safety and standards among the driving ranges ????

I find this extremely dangerous and irresponsible of the management man... affraid affraid

worst driving range is Bishan for me. bare-thread range mat is one thing. what pissed me off was the one time I played at the bottom level, while I was taking my address a ball dropped onto my mat from the level above.

Actually for beginner should try ground flr or closer to ground because you can judge your distance more accurately.

In the absence of governing bodies, why not vote with your dollar?

Head down to driving ranges where you are satisfied with the overall product.
