I spoke ti Michi and he cannot reply. If done in Singapore for 6 months, the contractor will close his company very fast. 


Normally it will require only at most 2 months. if approval is required from Authorities. Anything more that his duration, boss will go bankrupt. But I guess this is "boleh land".

Played there very recently. Condition is so so and it's quite a long course, ur wood game must be solid to get to the greens on regulation. Don't even think of going to the rough unless you like searching for balls in vain. Actually even fairways you have to really track your ball as it tends to get buried in the ground when it lands.

Beside the condition, the other thing to watch out for is the pace of play.
Typically on weekends; 1st nine can finish in 1hr 45 min. 2nd nine would be play 5 mins wait 12 mins kind. So one would not enjoy his day out on course eventually

It's Coming December Christmas already  the Guard house still under construction, I do not know what kind of contractor they got? take ages to built a Small Guard House!! In SG it would probably
takes 3 weeks to complete! Last post 24 June 2013.

Hibiscus Course is now closed for good has becomes a Jurassic  Park!
Play there last August 2013. Now opened Bougainvillea, Sakura and Orchid.
Weekday only open two courses, one is on maintenance, Grass cutting trimming etc..
weekday Rm90.00 excluding Govt Tax.

If you take a closer look, there are no workers at the guardhouse.


I played there last Thursday trying to clear my leave. Was intending to play Palm Resort Cempaka Course but upon checking was told it's  closed for maintenance. So went to Poresia instead hoping to finish the game earlier so I can renew my Macs card. 


Registered and was told only Orchid and Sakura is open for play. So proceed to changing room and get ready for play. Surprisingly, there were quite a lot of people playing on weekday, plus that idiot management close Bougainvillea. Finished Orchid in 2 hrs. Turnaround again holdups. Every shot have to wait until reaching Par 5 Hole 5 of Sakura. After tee shot and still have to wait for flights in front to finished their game, my friend and I decided to call it a day. 


It was excruciating slow, even on a weekday. Told myself to never ever play Poresia again on a weekday because the management close 1 nine and so only 18 is open for play.Mad

Played there yesterday for the first time, at Bouganvillea and Sakura courses. We teed off at 8.30ish and the course was empty. Course conditions were good, except maybe for a few greens that were kind of heavy due to the rain of previous days. But all in all a good course.

Played at Poresia yesterday due to Horizon Hill closure for tournament (darn their useless website which is not updated).

Promotion for Tues-Fri:

RM$90 for game (inclusive green fee and buggy) + Free Lunch with drink!
Lunch menu is Sweet and Sour chicken...a decent meal!

Course is ok lah...playable...due to the recent dry season, the fairway is dry and hard..good for Driver cause ball will run further..but bad for iron play cause of the hard ground.

cheers!

Was at Poresia on Wednesday.. tee off at 1230pm.. played Orchid and Bouganvillea as the other 2 were closed. It was great.. nobody at all in front or at the back, played a slow and relaxing game, finished 18 holes and was back in Sg by 5pm Smile

Oh that's a shame. It was my first time there. Quite enjoyed it though we noted the clubhouse looked a little run down. Still the greens were well maintained. Will go back again and try another round soon. Why did they close Hibiscus?

Sold to Leisure Farm. Japs need the money I guess. Takes them forever to do something. Many members left already, too. But it's generally a good no-frills course. A number of members from this forum. I am weekend warrior. Not for the fussy. Very Happy

Thanks TDO for the offer. Likely will need at least 2 if we play (wife and I). Have a great game Smile

poreasia afternoon sessions on weekdays are relatively crowded. Weekday AM sessions are the best. Really relaxing.
