I'd say it's safe but that's my perspective.

Golfed that Sunday morning of the elections and had lunch in Senai...

The day was rather abnormal


Causeway at 6am hardly any traffic
Very few cars and players at the course - Palm Resort Melati
Was wet but marshals still allowed buggy on fairways around 930am
No hurry.. Intervals between flights .. relaxed play
think few marshals working too
After that shower rooms like ghost town - lots of space and plenty of waterpressure n shampoo
Lunch was also unusually quiet..
But most unusual part was coming back thro checkpoints - was a breeze driving up to the counters of both sides and clearing in 3 mins each..

If u are half hearted on safety, then skip lah. No point worrying abt safety while u on course.

Gotta agree with this one. There's no point in everyone giving you assurances if you still feel unsafe. Ultimately, there are many factors which may add risks which are unknown to others. You need to assess for yourself if it's worthwhile heading into JB. If you think it's not, then don't. You only have one life so take care of it Smile

People were speculating there will be problems at Gelang Patah even on the eve (4 May) of the Election. I went in on that morning to play a round and returned home before 12noon.

Unless I am trying out a new swing at the adjacent fairway, I'd say it's pretty safe.
