Hi, anyone played there before? Thinking of going there this weekend. Wonder it's worthwhile to play there.

far far away, average price, ordinary layout somewhat like Ponderosa, there are better value-for-money and nearer, poresia etc. Security wise you will find many village roads go right behind the tee box with no fence separation, so watch those valuables.

thanks for the feedback! Smile
My friends have no handicap so we are kinda of restricted on JB locations especially on weekends?
I cant seem to find poresia' s contact no. The SG one on their website is not valid. Any other recommendations other than Poresia?

The course is so-so, the facility is not so good. I go there quite often because it is relatively cheaper on weekend. You have to find breakfast and lunch outside the club. Inside the club is really nothing.

If you are an average player (or below), or slow to warm up player, I suggest to start playing from 10th tee instead. The first few holes from front nine is quite tough which can demoralize people. The back nine has wider fairways and relatively easier.

Actually I like the layout of Orchard
Pretty challenging esepcially hole 1 to 5. Needs to tink before teeing off.

The green is ok but the fairway can be sloggy.. the bathing area is basic tot but for the rate, cannot complain much.

Juts my 2cents
HAve fun!

Ponderosa is a buggy on track course, with quite narrow fairways and wide rough. My tip: aim for fairway nearer to track, so less walking, less shag. Most of the time, the pin location is well protected by bunkers, therefore accurate approach shots are required. Hole 9 is their signature hole. Par 5 510m off whites, slight dogleg left. If shots not accurate, this hole confirm make u shaggggg!

Played Orchard this morning.

Nice weather (overcast with lit breeze), reasonably dry fairway, easy course, not crowded at all.

Basic amenities in the club house, Makan was nice Smile

Only drawback was the slightly longer drive in from Tuas.

Be careful of the male malay locker attendant, he likes to sit in the male changing area while you are changing after your shower and looking at you!!!!!!
