Thought the discussion is frenly course for newbie. HH is tough course compare to others, and expensive!!!

Palm Villa will always be the first choice for newbie. If looking for slower pace golf course, you may need to go farther from JB, maybe Legends or Orchard.
Weekday is always recommend, less crowd and you may try playing 2 balls. Razz
Well must take on the hardest then come the easy one, you'll appreciate the easy one better. IMHO hh is must try at least once

Poresia is the nearest course from Tuas, exit gelang patah and you should see sign leading to Poresia.

Thanks guys!

Last Fri Haji game was fantastic at Legend, though the first 9 was packed, we start on 2nd 9, nobody chasing us except a sgp couple(3balls) that bypass us.

Now bitten by the fairway wood bug to upgrade and try other brand.
Like cameras, the upgrade path never end! Smile

Hi
I've only played in Daiman in JB but I do recommend it given it's quiet and hardly ever have people chasing/queuing up behind. Even for beginners it's a great place to learn...a frd of mine used to be taken there by a instructor so i'd join and its an enjoyable course. Greens are not fast so easy to judge (say versus a place like Ria Bintan where they're lightning quick).

Pity I don't have a car as i'd love to go there more frequently....even Sat mornings are okay in terms of how busy it is.

If you give me a lift i'd join Very Happy

I prefer palm villa, fairways are wide, beginners friendly and easy to access from 2nd link. Daiman not easy, narrow fairways, many OBs

Reasons why Palm Villa is nice for beginners:

1) Wide fairways and pretty flat, most of the time you can see where you are hitting to
2) Relatively short course, especially from white
3) Bunkers are pretty shallow
4) Quite a lot of the greens have slopes around them that will collect the ball and stop it from running too far away from the green if you miss it sideways or long
5) Rough is not too long
6) Just enough water and other hazards so as not to be boring
7) Not very strict on pace on play, i.e. you are allowed to let faster players overtake you

and MOST IMPORTANTLY

8) Buggy on Fairways (after a certain time in the morning once the course has dried out, however, not sure about policy now during raining season)
