The range cards is a few dollars, i think its about 5 i think. The only draw back is that if you are a non-member, you will need to validate before you withdraw the balls. Other than that you are ok. Its not very crowded place. Please decent atmosphere.

Hi,

Was there at the range earlier this morning as I stay near the area.

The charges for non member is $10 - 63 ball or $0.15 per ball and the parking is $2 per hr.

Any keppel member can spare me a range card???

$0.15 a ball is ridiculously expensive... the balls at Keppel are old and not nice to hit. Coupled with the parking charges... I think Keppel is way over-priced. Think they are just trying to keep it non-members out!

Oh just want to add that the parking charges for the multi-storey and the outdoor carpark are different too.. $2/hr is the cheaper rate for the multi-storey. Did not realise this before, parked at the open air carpark for over 2 ours and it was like $9 or something like that.

No doubt it is not as reasonable as other places but the balls are definitely not old and in fact they are changed regularly

Its a nice, quiet and convenient location if you dont mind paying abit more

Keppel also washes their range balls, hence less chance of dirt getting into the grooves of your irons

Yes, I will have to admit that Keppel uses better range balls as compared to the other ranges I visited. I was quite surprised that I m able to hit distances close to what I hit on the green.

The range is also rather quiet on the wkend morning when I visted. Overall it is a very good place for practice but the price of ball n carparking might be the turning off for ppl to the location.

I am a Keppel member. Yes, I believe that the intention of the higher range charges and the car park charges are mean to address the potential issue of the range facilities being used by too many non-members. Keppel range is a stone's throw away from Reflections condo, and its just a 150M walk from Reflections condo's side gate. Without these charges, members could potentially be deprived of range bays etc.

No point if a member gives you a range card because when you top up, you will be asked to present your membership card.

Even with high charges, the carpark is full! Range also full on weekends.

Better to charge higher rate as the rich in the reflections can afford to pay. This protects the members (who pay monthly fee) so that they will not be deprived of using the facilities.

Price = F(demand,supply)

up price = down demand until the point where the range and carpark is not crowded. As long as it is crowded, means that there is room for the price to keep going up.

For non-members going to keppel, please DO NOT park at the members car park. The parking will kill you. Its like 4-8 bucks per hour! Friend accidentally did it and was very painful for him...

I am a guest. First time I blindly turned in not knowing the rates were different. The other time, I was left with no choice as it was a weekend, think there was a wedding going on and the visitor car park was totally full.
