Hey everyone!

Great to find a local forum for golf enthusiasts. Smile

I first picked up golf a number of years ago but didnt quite get 'into it' at the time. Always enjoyed watching golf on tv, but I guess that doesnt translate well onto the golf course! silent

Anyway, my girlfriend recently started taking up golf (sponsored by her company Razz ) and i sort of tagged along. Surprising that I can still hit the ball after all these years! Beening hanging out at MBGC mostly and sometimes at the Bishan range. Still very much a beginner and range rat for now, but looking forward to hitting the courses eventually. Very Happy

Cheers!
Shaun

Hey guys! Seems like there are quite a number of MBGC kakis here! Gotta love the nice breeze you get there! A world apart from the hot and stuffy range at Bishan... Razz

it is good to practice wedges on the fourth level as you have no fear of hitting ceilings...

I think the folks going to MBGC range should start cult team in MBGC with GR headban or cap. We would expect a lot of kakis there practicing becoming pro golfer...

Welcome Shaun ! If you want to try the real golf course in JB, please watch out the JB thread as we always hit JB course very often, i am a course rat as i seldom hit the range only before big games with turtle soup at stake hehehehe
Swing

Been in this silly game for a while, still play like a beginner with 150m drive, 4 on, 4 putted.....in the bunker while trying to get out , will dig a Fox Hole with sand wedge.... scratch

Hope you will join us soon !

Yah, I met 2 BFG-type people there already.

The first was last week when I saw golfjunk. I said hello because I saw that his driver was equipped with a graman shaft. The white shaft with blue fishes is a big give-away.

Yesterday, I met a BFG-regular (I think). His name is Jimmy Kok (Eric should know him). He had all the BFG club covers... you know, the fish driver headcover, the one-putt or one-shot covers etc.

Yaya, those with the white shaft, I would reckon that they are members of GR!
My gear has nothing iconic from BFG.
Oni the iron cover which has worn out.

I am waiting for the colourful design iron cover..
(the one with pokka dots, bright green & etc) Very Happy

For the time being, I like my driver cover. The one with the big fish. It's magnetic and awesome! Smile

Welcome to GR Smile

Only managed to go to MBGC recently and was pleasantly surprised with the setting/environment of the driving range there. Relaxing and spacious, only drawback is that it seems to always be quite crowded, difficult to get bays that are togather if you have a big group.

Yeah it can get pretty crowded there especially on weekends. I mostly go at night around 9 on weekdays so its not too bad. Try the 4th floor for warm up if its all full, then move down later when it's less crowded. Surprising how many ppl who frequent the range dont realise there's a 4th floor. Breeze is excellent up there! Very Happy
