PostSubject: Legends Golf Johor - DO NOT VISIT!!!   Thu Jul 11, 2013 10:16 pm

Just got back from a very unhappy golfing trip. Went to Legends this morning, played 4 holes on the Jack Nicklaus Hill course and had to change buggy cos brakes were malfunctioning (imagine going down a steep slope without brakes!!!). 2nd buggy came along, brakes smelled of burnt rubber each time we applied it. Once buggy came to a compete stop, we had to turn the buggy's ignition off and on and back again (sometimes even a few times to get it going). It refused and we had to push buggy downhill to jumpstart the ignition. 

Buggy faulty = nevermind la. it happens.

Next thing pissed me off. Went back to buggy terminal, out came buggy maintenance guy and he drove the 2nd faulty buggy off, while driving off, started cursing us, saying we were 'gila' and all that crap that comes along with it. Bloody fed up, want to complain, ask caddy master for the maintenance guy's name, he still got the cheek to tell me, 'nevermind la mdm, nevermind.' WHICH IDIOT WILL TAKE SOMEONE CURSING YOU LYING DOWN?!?!?! 

Managed to get the GM down to reception to cancel my game and refund green fees. GM called caddy master and marshall in to explain themselves and the maintenance guy's actions, marshall still denies but caddy master honestly replies. OMG. First and last time.

NEVER GOING BACK TO LEGENDS. Ever. Period. 

P.s. I dont mean to shame them, but i just found out after coming back to sg, that im not the only one. Someone else had to push the buggy thru an entire hole. UPHILL!

Haven't gone there for a long time but when I went there I never experienced such bad service... Must have had quite bad turnover

Was there last Sun. My buggy had faulty brakes too but luckily nothing happened throughout the 18 holes. The course was quite badly maintained. The sand in the bunker was hard and dry, and the fairway was also not properly maintained.

Seems like faulty buggy brake is the trend at Lengends this period. Was there 2 weeks back and experience was pretty much the same as previous golfing occasions ~ fine. I reckon it's got to be the fasting that's kicking in since Ramadan month just started.

Agree with the hard fairway and bunker since its now the dry season ~ just takes a fair bit more of focus and accurancy to get the ball on its way. In a couple of months it will be monsoon season and the complain would be that the ground will be muddy and soggy.... If we have been golfing long enough, all these conditions are expected since day 1 granted the rates we're getting for promo packages these days ~ pay peanuts and you get monkeys.....

On the flip side of the coin, boy are we a difficult bunch of customers to please......

Sometimes it's just plain unlucky to meet such people. Maybe they had a bad day too. I was there last Sat 6 July too. The buggy I had also had bad brakes. It's especially dangerous when driving down the slope at the 2nd hole of Water Course (I think) as I have to step very hard to slow it down. For a lady this might be tricky as you need lots of strength to bring it to a stop.affraid 


But all in all, the people there are generally friendly, including the marshals. I had an enjoyable game though. The maintenance of the buggies could have been better.Smile

One thing that I cannot understand is that there is the club house phone number in the score card why don't they just call the club house and inform them about the faulty buggy. There is no reason why you should push the buggy the entire hole Uphill!!!! all you have to do is call the club house. The other thing I wish to say is that having buggy breaking down during a game does happen to anyone of us whether is in JB, S'pore or anywhere.....so it is just down to luck when it happen and we just have to deal with it peacefully....just don't let it affect your game.

I once encountered buggy issues at Palm Resort too. Brakes werent effective, tyres cldnt grip, buggy wasnt powerful enough. Stopped at an uphill rough area to hit, climbed onto buggy to move off, and ended up sliding backwards into the bunker. Thank god the bunkers there are not like those in mbgc.

Cant expect much of the courses and facilities in malaysia.

I agreed w both bro dtan n TDO. Dun panic or get work up! A hotline call to the clubhse ll get it solved. Very Happy 
Furthermore havg such a long drive there alr hve our half mood gone w it so just treat it as a unlucky small experience. Cool 
My last game there was June CSSB Open n had similiar experiences w the bad course maintance...I just blamed myself fr being a lousy golfer n try on my next best shot n if nt try next again to prove myself wrong. Neutral 
Enjoyed our Fri bros/Sis.cheers

I'm ok if buggys breakdown. That's super common. But walao! Kena scold somemore! Where got mood to train?! Plus the course was poorly maintained, heaps of divots and bunkers were just holes with no sand but hardened soil. Palm resort. Anytime.

Sometimes it could be the way we approach the person. When the situation already boiled and we are unable to control our emotions, that's when things start to get worse. Be calm. On a number of occasions when one of  our buggy broke down, we will get the other buggy to push from behind. But remember, this can possibly be done in Malaysia. Never try this in Singapore courses because the penalty would be heavy for damage to buggy.Smile

Agreed with the brake are worn off. That happened to mine buggy when I was there on 7/7/13. However, we had a slow game and did not drive fast.

Had a similar experience at Legends. My buggy broke down and wouldnt move afew steps before dying again. Had to use another buggy to push it. The other thing is the buggies uses fuel instead of battery and the exhaust stinks like hell. Not going back there again.

Actually this problem happened not only in Legends only lah. It could be anywhere but places like JB and Batam are more frequent. In fact I encounter this also in Austin and Ponderosa as well, but recently went Ponderosa, they got some new buggies. As for Austin, our buggy broke down during a tournament and since it's a shot gun start, we ended up in the middle of nowhere. So we just dump the buggy and took one working buggy back with 4 bags and 4 pax. Just bare with it as the game is much cheaper. If anyone want non of the buggies problems had to pay to play locally lor. Anyway members told me before our local clubs buggies are all lease so after a few years they change entire fleet. JB clubs' buggies are bought so after some years and due to lack of maintainence, they can be quite problematic.

As for the rude mechanics thing, maybe he wake up on the wrong side of the bed that day. After you complained, just forget it and enjoyed the game.

It is a pity that Legends have turned out this way. The course is pretty nice actually.

I disagree on this. There should be some minimum service standard even if the price is cheaper. Especially this is a safety issue.

I don't think u can claim insurance for 4 person sharing a buggy if u got into accident

I've also encountered buggy issues at Octville (now Christine). I remember once when I was playing in the flight behing nientsu and their buggy broke down. They had to push it out of the way. 

I've had a couple of not-so-good buggies at Ponderosa too.

I guess it just happens. I'm not condoning the use of sub-standard buggies but it's not out of the ordinary. 

What I don't accept is rude behaviour. If the club is apologetic and does its best to fix the buggy, that's acceptable. But if the club chooses to be pissy about their crappy buggies, they should be reprimanded.
