Go join Marina Bay membership for $10 a year. Once you are a member, you can practise putting, chipping and sand bunkering for free for a couple of hours in the morning. You can check it out at the MBGC site.

Bro Tituman,

Do you purchase range balls for Chipping & Bunkering or you bring your own golf balls?

Thanks

I have stop practising chipping and bunkering since many moons ago when I just pick up golf and i did that at Queens. Those days you have to use your own balls. You are not allow to use range balls for C and B. I have read a lot of good feedbacks on your balls bro and hope one day I will get from you . But at the moment I just can't seem to finish my old balls. I have hundreds of chapalang balls picked up from actual golfing. Most of them from Marina Bay. I picked more than I lose them. Sometimes I brought them to the range just to dispose off some of them. I still have 6 boxes of new Noodles and a couple dozens of other balls which I bought just for trying. How am I going to finish them off is the question?

PS sorry bro. You asked such short question and you get such a long answer most of which is Topic OFF

Seems like the membership benefits have changed...


*****
For golfers who wish to practice their skills before a round of golf, there are practice facilities available at MBGC, namely the practice putting greens, chipping green, and practice bunker. Golfers who have a confirmed tee time for the day and golfers / beginners taking lessons from our resident golf academy Star Golf Academy will be able to use the practice facilities at no additional charge. All other golfers will have to pay a fee of $10 per hour per person (subjected to 7% GST) for the use of the practice facilities.

Bro Titu,

the reason I asked is because I have tons of ProVs that is suitable only for bunker and chipping practice and was wondering if there is a market for it.

If market is not available, I will dispose them by hitting it into the sea (driver and irons practice)

Wa ha ha

There was one lao-jiao driving range at East Coast Park but closed down to make business for Money Face Golf Club (MBGC). They had a putting green too.

Putting and chipping greens are the toughest to find in SG. Sigh... small red dot, what to do?

Nemo, maybe got market.

I use such balls for long par 3 water holes, and on days when no confidence with driver on tight driving holes. Lost the ball, no problem. At least I won't be beating myself up inside thinking about it, and can focus on the next shot ahead.

u not going to be a friend of nemo lor.
not like me, use NEW PRO V1 TO TEE OFF INTO THE WATER... nemo picks it up few minutes later and it appears on the forum, and the ball then proceeds to go into muar_chee's bag.

I think so too lor, got so many balls at home that I've stocked up from sales, eat for breakfast, lunch and dinner also cannot finish. Rummaging through, I once found some spalding top flite plus II balls in original packaging along with some Ultra 500s. Antiques man!

As for your new Pro V1s, like migratory birds lor, fly from ur bag to muar_chee's. good putt

and into the water and into someone else's bags again.

these pro V1s, so promiscuous, keep switching and changing partners.

anyway, i have also got the spalding top flite and the ultra 5000s in my storeroom..

i also got like 10 - 15 boxes of maxfli balls, which i stockpiled from the golfer networks sales during those golden times which have long yonder passed.
