Yes, not allowed on expressway due to the speed limit. It was built by a local enthusiast (I think last year and approved by LTA) and is the only one in Singapore. Very Happy

I got a compact sunday bag, and managed to squeeze in a driver, a hybrid, 3 irons and a wedge.

if i can squeeze in another putter (probably use make do with 2 irons), i think i can ride my bike for a 9 hole executive.

as for hitting the green, i think 4 wheel is definitely a must, either taxi or getting a ride from friend.

I also ride a bike. Sometimes when my wife use the car on weekday, i just use the sunday bag. Can put in a lot of clubs. Driver, 2 FW woods, irons, P,S, 5-9 + putter. Total 11 clubs + umbrella depending if the weather is hot.

Dangerous lei. How to carry a bag on the bike. Balancing is dangerous

Sometime if i go Batam play overnight, I ride a bike to Tanah merah with full bag. Actually not that dangerous. If go above 90km, the bag will shake because of the wind. So try not to speed lar.. also can enjoy the ride and scenery..
I have been doing this for many years since i started golf.

On ocassional weekday, I just use sunday bag. Normally can travel up to 100km. Weekend no problem, can use the car.

1 Big Dual Purpose bike Aprilia 1000 cc and 1 Scooter. Last time, I used a Honda Africa Twin.

I saw one Triumph bike in OCC. He has a customized golf bag holder sitting on top of the pillion rider seat. Very nicely done.

Taxi's are quite easy nowadays with all the apps in the market. There are some occasion during peak hours where you have to wait awhile but generally there's no problem getting to and from a Singapore golf course in a taxi.

The game will just be more expensive if you have the budget, that's all.

Isn't paying your car laon + COE mor expensive than taking the cab few times per month to go to the course ?

The owner of that Vespa scooter saves lots of money. Very clever fellow. Thumbs up to him.

Just curious so the bag sits perpendicular to the seat?

Not necessary. Some people got reimbursement by company to the tune of between $500 to $2000 per month. Plus, you do not use your car solely for golfing only, right? Anyway, it's the convenience of door to door travelling.
