How much is seletar now? I know they just recently open to public again. But imho, best place to learn driver is OCC, with the auto loader on the ground flr, you don't even need place ball.

I haven't been to Bishan for a long time...

But absolutely will not go to Green Fairways ever again... For the journey in and the time spent, it's absolutely not worth the effort...

When I go to range (if I ever do go) my main priority is to fine tune my swing and ball flight... When I hit those muddy balls, I don't know whether I fade is because of the ball or me, and when I draw is it cos of me or I pulled.... lol!

So to me, the condition of the balls is quite important la..

I wonder whether that Toa Payoh driving range still exists... scratch

Can public use any tier?? Smile because only members can use the 1st level at Keppel Range.

Cannot play scoring game anymore.
System has been shutdown.

Range dispenser is via cashcard only.

They have just changed the mats.

iuh, what p3nboy meant is that for every dollar you top up, you get an additional dollar. ie you top up $20, they match you $20 and you have $40 worth of balls.

Right now the promo is you have to be an NTUC member in order for you to get the 1 for 1 top up deal. Promo runs till end of this month...

sorry for the OT TS!

anyway my vote for worse range is same as some others here. B & G....

Chien....B&G....Bolce and Gabbra....hahaha

B & G...i think you can guess lah.... hehehe much discussed about...small bay...bad mats...etc etc. Only reason i would go to them is coz i still have credits in the range card.

At G, when me and my buddy went there once to look see look see. As we walked towards the proshop and stopped to look around (in a civil manner if i might add) the others there look at us like we got no cutting to be golfers........immediate upset...confirm not a place for me....

Speaking of credit....I think maybe I should go clear my credit in Bishan. I heard so many complain here, really made me think I made the right choice to go OCC.
