PostSubject: Just Moved - in need to play   Wed Sep 05, 2012 1:42 pm

Hey Guys,
just moved to Singapore ten days ago. Still need to get familiar with local golf courses. I saw that most of them are really expensive on weekends. I saw a few in malaysia which instead are really cheap and seem pretty nice and challenging too. The Kukup golf resort and the Tanjong Puteri golf resort. Do you know how to get there not having a private car?
also which of the Singapore courses are really worth trying?
thank you and hope to meet some of you on the courses!
cheers

Sg courses most of them are quite good. MBGC is one that u can easily access. Do you have a hcp? Much easier if you do to play locally, due to the amount of courses and golfers we had here.

Hi Andrea, you can also consider joining an informal Italian Association here to get to know where your countrymen hangout for golf. They might have some privileges too. My friend (who is also called Andrea) is a Treasurer in one such organization. He's also an Italian. If you are keen let me know. I will be happy to introduce. Have fun golfing.
