PostSubject: JB game, transportation and nearest course.   Thu May 10, 2012 6:23 pm

Hello GRians. I have a problem here, next tuesday a few friends and I want to head to JB for a game. Problem is, we have no CAR!

So is there course that is more easily accessible (nearer to causeway, Tuas or woodlands) and fairly easy to play off? We'll probably take a cab in or is there any way to arrange pick up from the checkpoint? heh. Or any other kind of transportation we can arrange? it'll be a 3 or 4 ball. no Confirmation.

Thanks in advance
Josh

It is quite easy to navigate your way around JB... there's always a first time to drive-in... JMHO

Most of the courses quite hard to go if you got no car. Perhaps u can call Palm Resort or Ponderosa and check with them. If you drive Poresia is the nearest to the 2nd link.

Best to follow someone in if you are driving for the first time, just to be on the safe side. Especially if the car is your dad's, lol.

Even nearby courses like Poresia can get lost, all it takes is one missed turn. Miss a turn off on the highway, even worse.

Hired transport is your best bet, or alternatively, you could extend an invitation to play to some kind GR soul who drives.

He could lead you in while you follow in your dad's car; if it's just a foursome, you can tompang his car or vice versa.

Hi joshyo,

A friend of mine has a transport service company that can pick you guys up, send you to the Jb golf course and then send you back to your individual houses.

If you are interested, please call him or whatsapp him

You can play Palm Resort and they do provide transport from Jurong Fairway to the JB club although I am not sure if this is available on a daily basis.

Spoke my mind there bro. Malaysia is very different from SG lol. Wrong turn can really cry, miss turn lagi worse... go to KL and come back :X Even with GPS also scared to go in actually. Somehow tt time my friend drove us to HH seemed pretty straight forward, but HH ex ar. I've been into MY many times with my parents, miss turn sometimes really very jialat, drive for miles before can U turn..

Anyway, I really appreciate the time u guys take to reply me, i'll look through the different alternatives.

Cheers!

Wolverine: This info i found on ur link, Stephen 98766927 still works, but i find Dino's offer to be more of "the deal", pick up one location and send back to ur homes @ 400RM.

Stephen charges $220 for pick up and drop off at one location.

These are the rates for my group of 3 ball. If more people i guess different rates, but that isn't my concern right now. Beer
