PostSubject: MGK or SGA   Sat Jan 02, 2010 4:22 pm

Hello fellow kakis

I've not renew my MGK membership as I have stopped playing golf for 6 mths. And its about time to consider to renew MGK or to join SGA instead.

Are there many MGK members here in GR? As we need min of 3 balls to play everytime.

Would like to have some feedback please.

Thanks Wink

I guess you don't need another MGK to join MGK. Just shout out at the GRs if you want to play and there will be many to flock in and want to join you....

I assume you mean SSG rather than SGA? I think MGK is the better choice if you frequent MBGC.

Mgk is gd to play at occ. Mgk do not have much privileges at mbgc too. Better to get mbgc membership card

mgk has free insurance. If you are already ntuc member it is very worth it

Hey guys, thanks for the reply.

I didnt know that MBGC also has membership? MGK members also hv the privileges to play at MBGC at special rate.
Do we still need to ballot for the time slot for a game in OCC?
Was a member with MGK for 3 years but only play there less than 3 times.

Hope to catch up with my game soon

mbgc is get a card for 10 dollars or so....waiver of service charge and advance booking fees.

play 3 games would make back the money for the year...

occ needs to ballot...but...the pass like nobody interested to take...so wait till a couple of days before you wanna play and just pay and take(cos passed the balloting day...would be first come first serve).

Thot OCC has improved a better system..still the old ballot method.

Anyway, I shall renew MGK to maintain HC and with insurance coverage.

Think GR ppl plays in JB more than MBGC.

Hi Raquel

it depends what you are looking for in joining MGK or SGA (the society)...

If you just need one to maintain your handicap than there are cheaper options...


Cheers

There is SSG (Singapore Society of Golfers) and SGA Golf Club Pte Ltd. I am a member of SGA. My handicap is being maintained by them and was told that SGA handicap is more recognized that's why I join them.

If I remember correctly, SGA is macam the parent company and all affilates like MGK, SSG etc etc are linked to SGA....go to SGA website and can see that all scores and HC are viewable there.

i hv never encountered any problem getting a golf pass from MGK for OCC.
seems like there is always a lot available.
i always ballot 1 day before the game.

i had a fren who was with Soc of S'pore Golfers, cheaper for handicap maintenance, but said that the club requires member to participate in their club games at least once a quarter... and its quite expensive. otherwise they either label u inactive or suspend u.

WRT SSG...that's true....members are encouraged to participate at least once a quarter......sigh...HC had to be updated to reflect actual........the best is to find a club that don need to, so that I can keep ones HC when I hitting in the 100++++++++++++++.....++++++++++

Sorry if this is OT, anyone with My Golf Club? I realise that I can't join MGK (due the fact you have to be a union member which I don't qualify)

Last i gathered, the only restriction was:

"All working persons can join NTUC as union members, except for personnel in MINDEF, the SAF, Police and the Civil Defence Force"
