Have to travel to OCC for quick fix today...sad...
 Question : Why not Seletar?

Actually, I am a regular at PG on weekdays, as I live in Sengkang, but over last month have already decided to move to either OCC or Seletar due to some of the shortcomings PG has. No need to list them again. Luckily I have finished my bag of tokens.

Yesterday, I went to both Selerar and OCC - looked around, ball prices and availability of range and facilities to non-members of the club. I am leaning towards Seletar. Its much closer for me and looks nice and quieter than OCC.

Your thoughts on this?

Cheers

I know for Seletar, Monday Night is only for Members as they are allow to practice on the grass at level 1 (Level 1 only for Member at any other days). As for the bunkers and pitching green, is also for members but you can play as long as nobody disturb. For range card topup, will have to go the proshop and I think they open till 7pm only.

As for OCC, only thing is that they they have bigger range and from time to time, you are able to get $ for $ range card topup.

Cheers!

Good things abt seletar, it's much more quieter at nigh, the chipping and putting green is foc, also there's a water cooler. The only problem is, you must top up before MST closes.

OCC, good things now they have the $ for $ promo, it make it very very cheap and they changes balls 2x a year.

Those students that still have lessons will also be left stranded. But I think the coach over there will do their level best to arrange for alternatives.

In any case, the sun will still rise as they find their footing again.
 From my understanding, the students are going over to TP range to continue the lessons.

Since TPY re operated by Poh brothers, they ve offer/ provide the Punggol Teachg pros ( GL Tan, Kamisa, Lawrence) the alternative plan to hse their existg n new students there. Wink
Just tat the silent mob by Poh brothers has took both the pro shops n the teachg pros by surprised & inconvenient. Shocked  
Bt there shld a gd news soon as my kakis witnessed another local range operator actively involved liao. afro

 For sure other range operators will  take over Ponggol range soon, they will probably negotiate  free parking token to golfers, Surely they must have learn from this bitter lessons.

I am a member at NSRCC, but not a big fan of travelling there with traffic and all, especially after work to practice from Sengkang..only go down there on weekends when I am not playing and previously used to practice at Punggol on weekdays...


Just took this from OCC's site...a sample for the dollar to dollar promo from a couple of months ago.
weekdays up to 6pm...i can never be there to enjoy this...still seletar looks the better alternative.

Driving Range July Special

Term & Conditions:
•  Promotion is valid from 1 - 31 July 2013, on weekdays, Monday - Friday from 7am to 6pm only.
•  Applicable for range card top-up of $20 and above.

•  OCC reserves the right to alter the benefits and conditions at any time without prior notice.
