DAIMAN 18 is not an easy course as there are a lot of hazards n internal ob areas. To top it off, the fairways are rather narrow.

Be prepared to lose balls if you are not accurate with your driver. However if u can resist the urge to use the big dog, then it may not be that bad.

Thanks to all! Cannot do weekdays..must care for kids lol. Me and wifey quite new to golf....been intimidated by the "nicer" course by the many seasoned golfers. Gathered that Permas Jaya and Daiman are good to train our short games and most important lesser pple around lol santa

Pulai Springs have 2 courses - Pulai Course & Melana Course.

Pulai Course tougher of the 2, not recommended for beginners. Melana course slightly better, but not as well maintained as Pulai Course. Drainage also pretty bad as it gets really soggy after heavy rain.

I think there are probably better courses that are more value for $$ in JB...JMO

Actually most of the JB courses are quite empty on sun pm. If not, they'll not offer so good price. Place like Puteri I thought quite good too, beginners like C, personally I like A.

Ponderosa quite ex in comparison with the others also it's buggy on track.

Palm Resort also ok.

How to go to pulai springs? Always wanted to play there but cannot figure out the way there.

Cause my aunt stays at pulai springs so she can get a resident fee. I was thinking if I should go on course since in Sg it's just too expensive. And I often practice on the driving range.
