Condition is as AngYongSheng and TDO mentioned.

Still an enjoyable course... when there's sand in the bunkers (and there is, for now). Very Happy

They're in much better condition, driveability is still an issue though.

The parking brake did not engage and the steering wheel was heavy and difficult to turn for one buggy I had, and there were power issues with another.

After two changes, I got a perfectly functioning buggy.

So do remember to check the working condition of your buggy still on the way to the first tee.
Buggy does not have divot repair sand container, club and ball washer on board? scratch

Ha! Ha! Same as Poresia. Even though buggies are new, the people there don't bother to fill the sand bottles and Club/ball washer with water. You have to fill the water yourself in order to use it. It's just a matter of time before the buggies become dismal again, just like the petrol ones.Mad

I played there on national day, like bro birdman showed, the buggy was ok, no club washer on the buggy. it was buggy on track that day.. the course is hilly n plenty of ups n downs so better be sure that the buggy is working before u start.. I played palm n water course, the some bunkers are waste bunkers so u can take free relief,  the condition wasn't fantastic but the layout at water was much better and challenging. overall it was a okay course but the fees I felt was abit of thw high side.. I paid about 250rm on a PH..

Just went to legend yesterday. First time play there. Initially plan to tee off ard 10, but delay due JB custom jam, reached the place  already 11am. So tee off as afternoon 1st flight... Played Palm and hill, the course is okie, fairway grass is mixed with cow grass... The sand in the bunker is not sand, more to soil.. what worse is buggy on track, my friends and I were already shagged by the time reached hole 14. Green speed is super slow...

"what worse is buggy on track"

I wish Poresia would implement this ruling. The management is really terrible. The marshals are doing nothing more except selling balls and never control the flights. Absolutely terrible. Don't know they are paid to sell balls rather than do the actual duty.


No wonder some members are already boycotting this club.Mad

I'm with you on this one bro TDO.

Harsh as it may sound, anyone who insists on driving onto the fairway on a wet day with soft and soggy course conditions does so out of pure laziness with no consideration for others that come after them.

Yet often, these are the same people that complain of how terrible the course conditions are the next time they play at the same course. And they wonder why?

IMO, they don't deserve to be playing this game that relies on honour and self integrity as its cornerstone.

The lack of strict enforcement is all due to their GM Hashimoto's management or the lack of it. Golfers with good etiquette are more disciplined but are often forced to follow what the others are doing as they alone would not be able to keep the course in good condition. This would require the others to share the same responsibility.
I still prefer the previous ruling of not allowing buggies on the fairway.Beer

Apart from the above rant, I must say that Legends is one of the better courses to play during this wet season, which is why I chose to play there today.

Legends fairways are usually firmer than most other courses when dry, which stands to reason that during this time of the season, the fairways will be less soggy than most other courses that normally feature lush fairways.

The only problem is that what little sand they fill the bunkers with is entirely washed away when it rains. As was the case today, most were clay bunkers instead of sand.

Green speed was reasonably consistent, about 8.5 to 9 on the stimpmeter.

Played Water and Palm, both were in good condition, but Palm was by far the better nine.

And yes, it was buggy on track all day. So we played half the time walking, as golf was originally meant to be. Very Happy

I think Tg Puteri has a higher tendency of raining during this period of time, similar to Sembawang. But yes, Legends, too, have the tendency. So most of the time it's tikam tikam. Usually when I make a comittment I will stick to it and meet my kakis there. Raining in Singapore does not mean it will rain there.

i played there on wed the course was good . But some holes was buggy on track and some are not.

We have caddy so there is no problem on whether buggy is on track or not. i always enjoy myself at legend.

Played there last Friday. Course condition was good, buggy officially on track but condition was good enough so they didn't enforce the buggy rule. Buggy conditions were bad, brakes not working again.

Bro paul@golf, 


Huh! How come buggy can slide off track? No brakes? Driving too fast?  scratch 


I think we should not have driven onto fairways that are soggy. This is a good etiquette to note. 


I wish Poresia would implement this ruling of keeping buggies on cart path.

To those patronising Kum Mun Lo restaurant, please double check the bill before paying especially if you have beer in your order. I was once charged more than the number of bottles we ordered. We only discovered the overcharging after we reached the checkpoint when one of my kakis browse through the receipt.  Mad 
Beer drinkers normally will not bother to check the number of bottles charged.

They probably they beer drinkers will not bother to check the number of bottles charged.

I don't see any locals patronising the restaurant other than us golfers.

Their food quality is not fantastic and a lot of dishes on menu is always not available.

I also realised that every time the bill is always higher than other restaurants.
