Hi there, may I know is there any driving range in Singapore or Johor that I can actually hit on grass instead of mat? Kindly provide operating hours and rates if available. Thanks a lot.

Fairway country club @ Jurong. $15 for 100 balls. Bad news is they will be ceasing their operation on 30 September 2015.

I went fairway club recently to try their range on grass but the feeling not as realistic as hitting on the fairway. Most of the grass is botak with sparsely distributed cow grass. One hit and the grass is gone.

Grass is gone because you hit a good divot!

It's a pity that there is no grass range in Singapore except in private clubs like Tanah Merah and Sentosa ... It is always beneficial to range on grass as one would not injure his/her wrist or elbow joints besides of course it is more realistic to simulate the real grass condition in the course.
