Congratulations pippin on surviving your first round, especially Austin Hills. ROFL

There are way easier courses to begin the game with. Many go to Daiman 18 or Palm Villa.

Hi superhero, actually Daiman is not that easy leh. If you can master it, you can play any course in the world without fear. Besides Tanjung Puteri A Course, Plantation, Daiman was my second training ground when I started.

Daiman is a public course and can walk in, don't ask for hc, thats why it is popular for beginners lor. But like I said, its good training ground.

I have not encountered a course in Malaysia that asks for handicap or even PC.

Here is my view. Though one might not encountered a course that ask for HCP or PC, that does not mean they cannot ask. The saying 'silence means consent' does not really work here

Analogy: When I drive past custom, the officers have not asked me if I carry drugs before...and to be specfic ...they did not ask me for the past 40 years. Should I assume that I can carry drugs and just drive thru custom?

sorry if that is abit extreme but better to apply caution just like in this aspect....why travel so far and kena caught or get thrown out ....At the end of the day, if you know the rules and the associated risk, and one wants to take it...then ok lor.

Puteri A course asking for HC is not a surprise as it is the members' course. One of the best I have ever played and loved it still. Quite easy to play. The late Sultan of Johor had a Hole In One on one of the par 3s. There is a plaque on the Tee Box to announce the feat. The one which go over the water, Can't remember which hole.
