PostSubject: Bukit Batok golf range suitable for learning?   Sat Jul 07, 2012 1:31 am

Tried golf for a day with frens and love it! wanna find a coach to learn but as I was googling, came across a post stating bukit batok golf range doesn't seems to have the proper area to learn how to putt ....

wondering if it is still suitable to pick up golf? Location is great for me though ...

The putting area can spoil your putting, coz the ground is a gross misrepresentation of real green ...

As a place to hit balls, i think its pretty decent and have good variety of food and beers. I know the owner there, he is a golfer as well and loves a good round of jokes.

As for learning, its up to you and your coach on deciding what is the expectation and progress.
