nsrcc was given new land as compensation but they decided to build chalets instead of golf courses.

obviously for commercial reasons.

Haven't heard about the range going away...
But airforce will be up for another month or two while army goes into renovation/reconfiguration, then airforce will close forever when army course is done up.

this is what I spent at NSRCC
35 X5games = 175 per week
52 weeks     = 9100 per year
10 years      = 91000.  YES ninety one thousand

30 sub X120 months =3600

Almost 100K
(those weekend games, monthly medal and charity game not included)

When I ROD, they treat me same as those that did not do NS .
Or worst, U feel same as those imported citizen

BUT U THINK THEY CARE?

Every year there are at least 3000 NS boys turn into man
Even 1/6 join, there are 500 new golfers.

NSRCC = rules with DICTATORS

If U can stand theIr rules and regulations,
GOD BLESS u

wow. 5 games a week. every week.  non stop for 10years.   some people play more than pga pros, really tough life for not making money on the tour.

if only the emotionally  absent gahmen and organizations can wake up to the fact that these full time amateurs contribute so much more than the rest of humankind and treat us better .  maybe they will retuen our cpf so we can use it to play golf.

Yes, the range will likely be gone by Dec or early next year. I heard they are building the new range at where the sailor club is sitting now.

golf club dun even have range. I am wary that the renovations to the existing course and the sheer number of golfers, sure jam packed and alot of inconveniences. Join 5 years 2 years must fight to play, i think not worth.

Guys a sign at the NSRCC Changi range says its closing 27 March and a temporary range will be set up somewhere. Anyone know the details? First Laguna range goes and now the NSRCC range. Its a conspiracy to hurt my game!!!

Current range will be closed permanently with a new one built at the Sea Sports Centre area. In the interim, a temporary range will be setup. I was told it is somewhere out between Army and Airforce. You will need to validate your range card at the golf reception and take the buggy ferry service to the range. The range will not be accessible by car.

This is what the current range staff told me.

I was told  the new range will probably take 2 years to build at the new sea sports centre.
