... the whites are from the old blue position and the blues from the rarely used black position.

What was cool today was the Long Drive Competition: http://www.mbgc.com.sg/Announcement/Detail.aspx?AnnoucementID=67.

Got to try the Big Bertha! I was able to hit it farther... into the woods than my XHot Wink.

It seems like you only golf at MBGC on weekends only, huh? Whats the green fee for weekend?

Yap, the course condition is excellent now ...

BTW, you have any feedback on Vovik Crystal balls? Spin and distance wise ... Thanks in advance ...  Topic OFF

bro turbo, green fees i think nett nett about 140 for weekend.. i played on weekdays as well.. There was once maybe twice i just gate-crashed and played as one-baller (join flight). I also remembered i was the lone golfer for a 9-hole game at the 1ast tee-slot on a weekday. Though no companion,  I have the whole damned MBGC course by myself! Reminded me when I was working in NJ many many years ago. Love the sunday golf game back then - no rush, cool weather... 

As for the volvik, i have not got the chance to use it yet. Wanted to deplete my Srixon q-star balls first..  Cool

Played mbgc once with buggy on track throughout.
That was after the dry spell in Singapore. Really tiring... Felt like commando course man! Nowadays must be back to normal I guess? Smile

No wonder my driving distance increased today. Laughing However, I noticed a 10 m extra roll only on average  ... I felt that the green condition has improved significantly after the refurnbishment a few weeks ago ... Both the green and fairway conditions can match or even better than many private country clubs ... Good job MBGC maintenance folks!

You there today Turbo? ? Me 2 ! 

But errrr... Sorry i disagree. . Feel the greens though are a lot better than a month ago they were still pretty slow. . You have to knock the putt instead of stroking.. Some are also inconsistent as the maintenance crew were spraying water in the afternoon heat. . so you get wet greens and dry ones. .

There were stretches on a couple of fairways which were marked GUR.. 

In all. .. Yes conditions improved from a month ago. . But I'll take nsrcc changi any time and let's not compare with some private clubs courses. ..  Laughing

Hi Chien, our flight only two balls ... Me and my golf kaki ... I do not know why the other two fella (who were not our friends) didn't turn up ... I saw a flight of four guys infront of us teeing off from blue and we also teed off from blue to make our $$$ worth Laughing  ... Looks like they were also delayed by the flight before them ... I saw a guy using 915D2 driver wearing Puma golf shoes ... Were you the one? Our  tee time was 12.33PM ... Cool

BTW, I comparing the course condition of MBGC with private clubs in JB ... Laughing

In terms of course condition, OCC is worse off than MBGC currently ...

Turbo, agree with you man. I played OCC about 2 months back and the condition of Dendro was quite bad. Lots of patches here and there on the fairway. Luckily Aranda was still quite alright.
