Hi, im keen to try my hand on golf, not sure where to start from, looking forward to make some new friends here.

I have no knowledge on golf, should i take beginner lessons from professional? Anybody wants to take lessons together?

I'm a lady staying at Bishan, just opp Sin Ming driving range.

Kay

Hi Kay,

Welcome to our family.

Agree with Hardrock that the best is to start taking lessons so you can start building the right foundations.

Have fun and do join us for our gatherings and games soon!

i'd suggest that u can go for a trial lesson n then from there to determine if u would want to sign up for lessons or not.

for me, i started by going to driving range with my colleagues n found that i like golf. hence here m i wanting to take lessons to start my journey.

perhaps u can let me knw when u going down n if possible to schedule in a trial lesson for me, i can join u. Smile let's take this offline, i'll pm u my email add.

cheers,
Batman

If you are going to take lessons at Bishan I recommend Gary Doolan, Australian PGA member, it is like buying anything in life "cheaper is not always better".

Welcome. Welcome. I'm new to golf also and just started lessons abt a month ago. Better learn from a coach than to pick up from friends. Friends are more for tips and suggestions. Come join us at mbgc. If u are headed to range at Tpy also can jio me and my wife. We stay Tpy so usually go there for practice.

Heard abt trial lessons fr some friends. i think its more like while e coach is conducting lessons,u can just join in for 15-20 mins. Personally i think its good b4 we commit n realize we dun like e coach due to whatever reasons. n also if such coach r offering this, it also shows how confident they r.

just my 2 cents..
