PostSubject: Top Golf Driving Range   Mon Jun 24, 2013 9:58 am

How I wish we have this type of fun and family-friends friendly golf range in Singapore. Combine this with a fully equipped gym and a ikea type childrens playground and its sure to be a winner! Making it haze proof will also help:)

For members, a hole in one and they give you usd 1000 :

when TPY installed topgolf, i know sure will flop. golfers just need a range with free parking, good mats, good balls, good food and not such high tech stuff.

I don't know what TPY had and why it flopped but I think it's a great concept.  Maybe it's too costly for a small market like Singapore as it has a low golf participation base compared to places in U.S. Europe or event Korea, Japan and Taiwan.  If done right, I would definitely be a regular and I think it would be more fun than a simulator.

Is there a range in Spore that has free parking, good balls, mats and food?? I've been to 3 different ones and haven't found it yet.  I heard Marina Bay is good and will try soon even though it's not convenient for me.

Not bad... Got a pick-up joint vibe to it, would be even better if they had a hooters there.

In Korea, they have private golf simulator rooms with hostesses similar to KTVs.  Even better.

I think Singapore too hot la... no one wants to be at a range to hang out unless they really want to hit some balls!

i stopped hitting balls there bcos the ball with chips inside it for Topgolf was so hard that u feel like hitting stones!

was glad that they replaced it with better n softer range balls after they ceased topgolf.

hi, after reading this and doing some research. I believe the flop are mainly a few factors;
1. Location: Quite way off and even if so, there was not much entertainment around such as the one in bishan...I believe bishan may work out well if they adopt this concept...
2. Balls- too hard to hit and the impact may be great for golfers...
3. Not much promotions and events going on to support such stuff...end result...lesser golfers and thus failure.

so much of this, got a concept that may work out well but definitely not easy to start....
the idea of a theme range
