TNRM, every time I read you post, it makes me realize that however shitty my day gets, it doesn't get worse that what you went through. my sympathies to you, man

JT, we are playing Saturday, 2 pm flight. you and I so far, but I can rope in more kakis if you like Smile I get to sleep longer on Saturday morning.

Friday flight is for the monthly medal tournament.

Tired of the RS4, so selling it and getting something a bit more 'uncle', hence the Audi S6. Razz

S6! Sweeet.

U and I will do la. 2 balls play faster. Still have to report to wife after game. Being playing for the last 2 weekends liao... Smile

So you chose the more challenging course in Jumeirah ah! hehehe. With my standard, it doesnt matter too much...

And i thought my weekend was bad cos i didnt manage to go range this weekend.

Cornball: Agreed totally. The traffic situation at the border crossings are so variable, it's not funny. Even if the traffic is light, the Singapore side will find a way to screw things up. They'll do it by only opening 2 immigration counters or having all traffic route through 1 lane for customs clearance etc. Compared to the Malaysia side, we are pretty pathetic.

Both courses are just as challenging. On Fire course, if your ball lands in the tall grass, it's not easy to play out of either, lots of tangled vines in there. Bunkers are positioned around 220 yds to 270 yds off the blue tees (Tournament tees) so either you drive accurate, long or short. Bunkers are also fairly deep, so it's as good as a 1-stroke penalty if your ball lands in one. Greenside bunkers on Earth are powdery, while the ones on Fire seem more firm/damp.

Ground is a little firmer than The Els Club, so you can really attack the ball and get good compression on your irons

@TNRM : every time i come back to Singapore, the one thing I dread about playing in Malaysia is the causeway/2nd link fiasco -- all those booths open, and yet still so slow. My kakis and I got stuck in a jam for over 2 hours once, really unforgettable. Many people tell me that it is actually faster to go play in Bintan!

How did you golf games over the weekend go? Anything that could go wrong went wrong for my Sat game. Check this out:

1. Drove across the island to pick-up golf kaki. Waited 45 mins and he didn't wake up. Left without him.

2. Reached woodlands checkpoint later than planned and got stuck in long tailback jam due to start of school holidays.

3. On downhill slope to Singapore immigration, Malaysian car hits my bumper. In order not to hold up traffic, I told him to meet me after immigration to have a chat and he says ok. Thereafter he disappears.

4. Late for tee time and long queue at tee box.

5. Stuck behind super slow flight (machiam putting for a major on the pro tour. 1 guy even did a Villegas + plumb bob + 360 deg survey). Super slow putters and spraying all over the place + not long off tee, yet all wanna play off blue tee box = 5.5 hour round.

6. On way back to SIN after game, decided to go for coffee to cool down. Called friend to meet me there. Decided to go via Tuas to reduce waiting time.

7. Tuas checkpoint had only 1 person doing customs check and another 5 more supervising using eye-power. 30 mins to clear customs.

8. On AYE got stuck in 20 min jam due to 3 car butt-wacking accident on AYE.

9. Ended up at Highlander late by 1 hour and friend already finished coffee.

How’s that for a day?


I thought you gave up golf afro

Had mine in Tokyo. such a nice course but the wind was damm strong.. hit straight at the pin only to find the wind took it & send it into the water... damm frustrating... then it is whole day trying to play against the wind......aiming off left or right of pin at ridiculous angle... needless to said - the score also "gone with the wind.." Mad
