Dear bros and sistas, being a newbie to the game, kindly advise which are the more forgiving and the least no of golfers in JB, pls? Have been to Ponderosa and Palm...always been "chased" by many flights behind us sigh...thanks in advance. Heard there are lesser pple in Daiman 18 and is fairly easier? lol

from a newbie point of view, how was your experience for at Palm Villa?

I am also a newbie and I have been playing there. The fairway is rather wide and forgiving. Try Sunday noon where there is usually less ppl.

Mike, because when jay_may mention all those course? u suggested golf greedy. As far as I'm concern, golf greedy only had JGCC and Palm Villa on the website for JB courses. There's also Pulai Spring but I never see price come out, so assume cannot booked. Anyway Palm Villa and Palm Resorts are different course, eventhough they are beside one another.

That's the problem for all JB courses. I was in Puteri on sun pm, also lightning delayed, but no rain, after that not so bad. Buggy still on course.

Palm Villa can. I think Puteri B and C also can. Christine should be ok so is Daiman 18. So far, I think only Ponderosa min 3 balls.

Thanks bro enwee. Ponderosa I know cannot, horizon hills I called they depends on whether crowded or not. Daiman in my opinion is a dangerous course because of narrow fairways with balls flying here n there from opposite fairways. Orchard n Kukup can but very far away.

Why don't you booked and put up to look for kakis, if you wanna play in the course like Ponderosa or HH, I'm sure some kakis here want as well.

one sure thing U need most, get a caddie! at least they can tell U where to aim or lay up. then they go all over to look for your stray ball. U will learn faster.
By the way U got your PC yet? BUY insurance, just in case U hit someone or someone hit U.
If U complain about cost, then DONT play.
My STRONG opinion .

If I'm not wrong, Ponderosa got no caddie, PV must booked in advance to ensure caddie. HH also can run out of caddie at times. As for insurance, I think most of the clubs include it fee. Btw I'm not sure whether can one buy golf insurance without hcp?

Hi there! yup, 4 balls & getting a caddy to look out for our stray balls. Fairway are long and fun, water course is the killer for us high score players Very Happy
Not too crowded at Legends as it is quote far from JB town beyond Senai airport. We expect Palm villa & Palm resort to be packed so go back to Legends.
