Hi Fellow Grians,

I heard that one does not need PC or Handicap Index to play in Bintan and Batam... ope it's true. My colleague wants to go try out the courses the there..

My query is: How do you travel orget on the ferry with your gear? What do you use to store you precious gear?

Sorry if this question has been asked before...

You don't need a travel bag. Just use the cover that comes with your bag and iron covers if your the kiasu type

I normally use a travel cover as sometime u can see your bag being stacked under 100 over pcs of other golf bag. No PC or hip needed.

That is a good idea, too bad I don't have a spare set anymore.

Worthwhile to have a spare set and bag, particularly when playing an overseas course for the first time or using a new agent. Touch wood any loss just submit claim, no heartbreak.

Good idea abt the spare set... I was just about to bring my spare set off to sell at FESC... A little reluctant but now I have reason to keep them!

It is best to use a travel bag with padlock. Things can get stolen while transporting your golf set to the club, e.g. balls, umbrella, etc... Better be safe than sorry.

Moreover, most travel bags have additional padding that served as extra protection.
