PostSubject: Palm Springs Golf and Beach Resort, Batam.. 1 year term membership up for sale.. wats reasonable offer??   Sun Oct 11, 2009 1:54 am

hi guys.. just wanna check wf u if any of ya guys are member of Palm Springs Golf, batam??

wats the benefit that a "1 year term membership" gets? comparable to full member??

i tried emailing them and reply from palm springs states

as term member , you pay :

S$47 for round trip ferry
S$ 29 for caddybuggy for weekdays
S$33 for caddybuggy for weekends

whereas currently they are having $88 for weekdays which includes round trip ferry, lunch, caddy+buggy... so its a saving of $88-$76 = $12 only?? some more as a term member u gotta pay $800++ a year??

so who the hell would wanna sign-on term membership?

if any of you is a member there would appreciate ur feedback..

my friend is waiting for my answer if i would like to take over the new 1 year term membership from him.. last day of activation/transfer is this coming friday... Smile

Not really. Dun think it has any real savings for 12 only. Better off finding something else. Plus playing there likely to take the whole morning and afternoon.

I think the so called savings is when you play mostly on weekends. I used to be a member there and eventually decided to "hang up" my membership. Don't get me wrong, it is a very nice place and the golf course is decent. I don't mind spending one full day a week to relax. However, what really irked me was the ferry in which you got mixed with gamblers. During those days, we had to cramp the ferry with uncles who will use super colourful words in every sentence even though there were ladies on board. And the mad rush towards the immigration counter was another pain in the butt.

Spending wise, it is more expensive to play there. I used to spend almost $100 for a weekend game there, which included F&B, ferry, green fees, caddy and tips.

Let's look at the breakdown costs: -

Ferry + Green fee + Buggy + Caddie - approx. S$60
Caddie tips - S$10
Lunch - S$20 - 30

So average is S$100. If you go for massage, it will be another S$40-50.

Overall, it can be expensive unless you bring your own drinks and food. But still, the minimum you have to spend is around $70 which is still high as compared to getting a membership in JB.

Ever since I jonied Poresia, my weekly expenses have dropped significantly. Transport - S$10 (carpool per pax), golf - RM38. We eat in coffeeshop in Singapore which is inexpensive but Palm Spring charges you "resort" pricing.
