With reports of rain & drowning in the north eastern states, is it safe to still go JB for golf?
Anyone been JB golfing recently?

just came back from palm villa yesterday. although the weather was fine, cloudy with brief glimpse of the sun, certain portions of the fairways were clogged. overall still playable though

Yeah. Safe.

But some courses are quite soggy and bunkers can turn into mini-pools.

I usually play at either Horizon Hills and RJCC.

Issue of ponding at Horizon is not too bad as the club have recently did massive work in installing subsoil drainage at ponding spots.

However, the course will still be quite soggy after a heavy downpour, especially after an all day downpour which happened 2 days ago.  I happened to play a tournament there the day after the heavy rain and the course was soggy, but not as bad as it used to be.

As for RJCC, it is quite an undulating course and there will be ponding at the low areas.

Don't even talk about golfing in JB... you can barely golf in Singapore during the monsoon period. And, I'm also referring to driving in JB or Singapore, as the case may be.
