Can someone update on the condition of the MBGC rooftop mats. The last time I hit off those mats, the green mat stuff stuck onto my irons. Got to scrap them off.

welcome thread also so hostile, scaring away someone who haven't even picked up his golf clubs.

Hi shuang, the best way to begin the golfing journey is to look up teaching pros, have a chat with them and take lesson with whom you are most comfortable with. of course you are welcome to join us during the weekly range sessions to get some exposure, but i fear you might be negatively influence by the buayas there....all say beginner but all hit so damn well, it raises your expectations of beginner golf far too high.

actually the mats are dry cos they are in the sun. Thus when you hit, the plastic that is degraded by the constant sun melts and form a nice shield for your irons.

Just soak in water for awhile and they peel off nicely. I dun even bother. By the next game they will be gone.

usually clubs are provided for beginner lessons at most teaching academies. as for our weekly range sessions, they are more than members who are willing to poison you with clubs/weapons of choice.

Cheapest way is to go to Leisure Sports in B1 Far East Shopping Centre and look for Elaine. She has lots of loose clubs for sale, ask her to recommend a ladies iron for you. A 7 iron with graphite shaft should be sufficient to start with, and if you decide to take the game more seriously from there, then get a full set.

I suspect shuangyh is an XMM. Needs someone to guide her along the evil path of golf. Any volunteers?
