Was tbere last Sun. Can redeem complimentary parking coupon using 24pts credit points from the range card. Just need to go to top-up counter to redeem. Though not totally free, still better than nothing. At least the points are put to good use.

Btw, was informed by the lady at the counter that this was a new decision by the management. Initially, range users can only redeem parking with every $30 top-up. affraid Must be mad to come up with this idea. Who in the world will use up $30 worth of balls at every range practice?

Not sure abt the prawning area but at the range, weekday day parking is ok.
They should make 1st hr free or something.. For the golfers.
Or they wana cash in for the qing ming festival parking 1st? Hehe.

Wonder if it has become a dead town now..

I was there yest at abt 3pm. Quiet if you asked me. Only 4-5 bays occupied.
So rather than paying the carpark fee, i went to SCC instead cos still have quite a bit of credits left..
And FREE PARKING of course.. hehe

Not sounding cheap skate, but i tend to stay at range approx 2-4 hrs, taking breaks between practice.. so makes no sense for me to pay parking fee, i reckoned.

That's what going to the range is about.. Just relax, swing as and when you like, best if you don't have to worry how much your parking costs after like 1 or 2 hours.

To my knowledge, the lease for the range is ending soon. I wonder if anyone will take over the place or it will be converted to HDB as well......
