HEEE ... Tried hitting on the grass.
Woohooo ... it sure does feel more 'solid' than on the carpet! Very Happy

Do you find yourselves able to hit better on the carpet @ the range
or on the grass? Or it doesn't matter at all!?! Question

The Turf city driving range is great if anyone wants a feel of hitting off grass.

Parking isn't too much of a problem, but there isn't any proper parking lots available..

But still a great place! Too bad they don't have a cafe there.

thanks eiji.

@dsia71, I had used the range at the old seletar camp before. cow grass and long grass and muddy in some areas and uneven lie. not fun and definitely does nothing for your ball striking practise, unless you play from deep rough all the time. What a Face

Do you find yourselves able to hit better on the carpet @ the range

Turf City is a good starting point for beginners who want a feel of something other than range mat. Hitting from the mat gives you a false sense of improvement. Hitting the grass, albeit cow grass, gives you a new perspective - divots, mud, hard uneven ground, etc. Also, prepares you for what to expect when playing under the hot sun for long period. There are no electric fans to pamper you.

No cafe, no problem. I visit the Giant supermarket at Turf City and get whatever I need before going to the range. Oh yes, and to relieve myself first - there's a horrible mobile toilet at the range that you probably won't want to use unless absolutely necessary.

There's water and rags to clean your clubs after play.

Bros cowgrass on a driving range is already a blessing. At least you are not hitting the rubber mat. Its the next nearest thing to playing on a real course.

Sentosa Golf Club has a grass driving range...very very nice, similar to those grass ranges you find in US golf clubs.

Woo hoo hoo still thought u went onto the golf course liao. afro

In theory, yes "in theory" only, it should not matter at all. Carpet/ grass/ upslope/ downslope/
bunker etc etc. Bcos ur swing is fixed and the only diff is only e club. That is "in theory" lar hahaha....

My experience is that I swing and contact the ball better in range than on green course... Dunno why,
but I think its practice that I need more.
