Hi Folks,

Went down to Bishan range yesterday. Seems that they are installing electronic parking gantries. Not sure when they will be operational though...

Just a headsup.

I am sure have first 2 hours free type. Maybe to discourage people from the car workshop building from parking there.

Yea, ground floor machines always deduct my money but don't dispense ball. End up climbing upstairs to the office and use the machines there instead.

Thats becos the range is going to give way to the new under ground expressway exit n entry.
So really no point spending more money.

Build gantry can make money

Cos theres a bar. And a used car dealer there.
If everyone park there but not customers of bar n car dealer n golf range.
They will lose money. Cos theres no parking lot for customers.

Theres no need to repair the ball dispenser machine. Cos theres no long Q .
So strictly speaking one machine can handle all golfers demand.

Oh no!! Not another range with paid parking!

In the past 1 year, JCC, Bishan range, Fairway Club added gantries to their car parks. Monkey see, monkey do!

Probably "Bishan Range", but got auto-corrected by iPhone :-)

I do hope they will have that first 2 hrs free thing though, if it's to deter folks from parking at the range to go KTV or even prawning that's understandable. But to penalize golfers like this, given that the crappy condition of the range (that's an understatement!), that's akin to committing business suicide...

+1.

Start small first. These measures don't cost an arm and leg from a business perspective
