Agree, otherwise, the exorbitant parking fee will drive regular golfers away in the long run. At least for me.

If they implement free parking for that location, think we will have hard time finding parking lot. Mostly all residents from opposite will start to park all their vehicle over there. Esp those people like to go for night range will have hard time finding parking lot.

They charge parking fee there due to proximity of leisure area, HBD dweller opposite,
these ppl will take advantage if there's free parking espcially, cars, pickup truck and perhaps
lorries,, than golfers willl suffers no parking lots, than golfers will complaint, the Landlord there also face problem! Charge parking golfers go away.

But it has been a norm for golf range to provide free parking, so range has to be far away from
HDB, shopping centre....near jungle is best! Sure to have free parking lots!

that's what the range at CDANS does. They rebate up to 2hours if you buy balls from them. What pisses me off is after i pay 100bucks for a lesson and another 24 bucks for balls, I still get charged 3buck for parking.

I think the range operator is smart enough to differentiate between golfers and non-golfers. As suggested by another bro, golfers patronise the golf shops (at the range) or range balls should not be charged parking fee if driving range wants to get more business.
On the other hand, probably the range operator is ready to accept less business from golfers but making the car park a money printing machine. Possible?

If Golf range has got the initiative they should allow golfers to redempt parking
when they purchase golf token from shop, this would solve the parking problem
and improve on their business!!

You know Bukit Batok range (CDAN) is paid parking too but golfers who patronise
the range can redempt parking after the practice.

Maybe just to clarify amid the confusion. Punngol Range is operated by Poh brother, The seafood at the end is by another operator. They are the leasee. The land is lease by another party who also operate the carpark. So both the restaurant and range operators cannot stop the carpark charges unless they work out a deal with the property owner/leasor.
