PostSubject: Golf Course Condition Update   Sat Jul 13, 2013 2:32 pm

Hi, Fellows,
We all go to play games everywhere. But the most disappointing thing is to find that the course condition is less than desired when reaching there to play. Of course we usually check with registration counter but I bet the answers is always a 'very good'.
So I suggest we start to crease topic/subject for each golf course where we played lately and bother to share its condition with the fellow kakis' reference.

To simplify the posting, I suggest we just rate these areas:

1. Green Fee - agar agar ok
2. Fairway - Fair, good, excellent
3. Green - Fair, Good, excellent/slow, fast
4. Bunker - maintained/not
5. Any other thing to mention - traffic, staff friendliness, crowdedness, etc.

12 July 2013- Keppel @ 1222 hrs 

Green fee- member's guest S$115.56 including buggy and GST 7%
Fairway condition- good
Green condition- good except that green speed was not consistent in a few holes (not sure this was intentional)
bunker condition- soft sand, generally in good shape
Others- staffs are courteous, also noticed players (from other flights) are always smiling. Food is excellent at the cafe.
Weather forecast on 12 July 2013 afternoon was thunderstorm....but turned out to be a good day and we completed the round without interruption.

Very Happy

 Third that..

Played on 12th July Friday pm.. Greens were like beaches.. Totally disappointing.. Aren't Mondays and Tuesdays their weekly maintenance day ? Then why the horrid green on a Friday (and now you mentioned Saturday too..) ?

I always wonder, whether such condition entitles the golfers a recourse or partial discount...? After all, golfers pay full green fees on non maintenance should expect certain acceptable green condition..

I played MBGC on Sunday afternoon. Greens were recently hollow thinned and filled with sand. This is routine maintenance of the greens to ensure the grass grow well. Noticed in Jurong CC, they thin half the greens and locate the hole in the un-thinned side so golfers still get a decent putt going. However this is probably more troublesome and I am not sure if it will end up have inconsistencies on different halves of the green eventually. Give it two weeks and the greens will be beautiful.

Tanjung Puteri - Straits Course
21 July 2013, afternoon game
RM100 (booked thru Oscar)

Condition was surprisingly good. Fairways were well maintained and could see the difference between it and the first cut of rough. Greens were not sandy and speed was about 8-8.5. Only downside was the bunkers. Some are ok but others are very hard. It's alright as long as you stay away from it.

Facilities wise was usual to Puteri standard - buggies was ok too. Notice they hired a couple more guards on site as well.

Generally, a good golfing outing there now since its Ramadan and course is generally quiet. Definitely value for money course.

Sentosa Tanjong - 19th July, Friday, PM
1. Green fee - N/A
2. Fairway - Good. Not excellent as cow grass has been edging over the carpet. And the rough areas are not maintained.
3. Green - Excellent (speed 10.8)
4. Bunker - Good condition
5. Others - generally a top golf club with very high standard of maintenance. Oh, the driving range is excellent, as practice is from real lawn floor.

Ponderosa is currently one of the better maintain course in JB, I would rate it among the top 5 for JB side.

Saujana Golf Bunga Raya Course - 20th.July.2013
Green Fees: RM350 (weekend member guest)
Fairway: Good condition
Green: Excellent, with speed around 10~11, very difficult to chip near in case not on regular. All the 18 holes green speed is constant not like certain courses having different speed.
Bunker: Most of the bunkers are very hard and easily become "Homerun".
Caddy: Our flight caddies Just came for first day and cannot read the line as well as distance. The other flight caddy is good and experience.
Buggy: Good
Overall: Very Tough course

Raffles is repairing the Lake course greens, started a month ago and might take another month or so. The green look like a chess board and unplayable. 
Palm green is nice, speed 9.5.

In Jakarta, they will give you return voucher at half price from standard... And do it without you saying your green like beach... Now I really missss Jakarta golfing....
