At long last......one of those courses which I had heard but not get the chance to play, has been 'checked'.....ie been there, done that.

Course = Tampines @ TMCC

Disclaimer: I dont play in many courses all over the world...the comments are solely based on my observations

This is one course where I really felt there is a real serene feeling....very much like a resort golf feeing. Trees are a plenty. So plenty that almost all my 2nd shot have a tree blocking me....Sian...this is the consequence of being short of the tee.

Green wise is 'true' (Trying to sound like pro). Fast !!!. After being advised by the host, here is my guidelines...if left to right line.....take more left and vice versa. my cock eye didint know how to read till back nine....

playing off blue is a challenge but a good experience. being short fm tee will have the trees blocking as most holes if not all, are either dog-left or right.....nothing is straight hole

if there is one word I will associate with this course

its ......SERENE + STIM

yes... the course was great.... a bit challenging if you play there first time but very good fun. The greens are one of the best i have played in sg.If u are used to nsrcc or mbgc, the greens will need some getting used to.

Great course, no traffic, great company, friendly staff, exceptional weather, lousy score (so can hit more shots to enjoy the course even more).... what else can one ask for Wink

I do like TMCC Tampines. The frequent planes flying overhead does scare me a little but by and large, it's a nice course. TMCC is an awesome club Smile

Really nice course to play, love that place, would love to go back there again (especially when my only game there was interrupted by rain). Smile

I love the Tampines course - much prefer it to Garden

Probably because i always seem to play so badly at Garden!!!
