PostSubject: Go playing in Singapore   Fri Aug 17, 2012 8:27 pm

Hi all
Not sure if this is the right section, but as a newcomer in Singapore I have a question for all those that, like me, don't have a car: how do you usually go playing, with the golf bag and eveything? Is it common to get a cab or are there other options (courses close to mrt or else)? I'm not considering to leave my equipment at a club as I don't have a membership and don't believe I can afford one, and also because I generally like to play at different courses as much as I can.
Thanks to anybody who might reply to this"

Good advice, but as for now I don't know any fellow player yet! But from you answer I sense that generally people go there with cars, right?

check out GR threads on monthly games and invites.. the organiser usually helps arrange transport ... yes and no as not all Singaporean golfers drive as u know COE here is pretty high,

I don't have a car here and I take a cab if I don't have a ride with any of my playing partners.

Most I have spent is just below 20 each way. I think it depends on timing and location. I really don't even think about it as I don't have a car and it is the only way that I can get there sometimes.

Ask Tourswing.

I gladly pick him up somewhere and send him home.... It takes 2. You cannot expect your friend to drive you around like taxi. So if you really enjoys the game. Then no running away from taxi... It's never inconvenience in Singapore especially..

You already are, mate...

I vaguely remember the last when we met you mentioned a game together.. Think I'm turning into a giraffe already.... Laughing

But given the long waiting list, guess it'll be 2013 summer??
