PostSubject: For Zen Fans - The House of Zen   Tue Sep 07, 2010 9:55 am

it started as a vision and went on and on...

the final paperwork is done and we are ready to rock and roll.

this is where Zen fans and users can gather, network and improve their putting through meaningful exchanges and we are also looking to bringing professionals to teach users the fine art of making a good putt.

here's a look at the lounge area.



there is a sofa, piped in landscape music, long bar top with free wireless access and for the putting green, we will have 2 giant greens.

the total putting area is going to measure 12 meters X 4 meters. we have a easy green for analysis and beginners and a more challenging green to make things more interesting.

teaching professionals are also encourage to book the greens for private lessons as its not easy to teach putting in the limited greens available and you certainly do not have to battle with hot humid or wet conditions.

the greens should be in by mid oct but the rest is going to be ready in a months' time.

i am also going to ask Mr Nick Middleton if he can send me some of the prototypes from very early days which was never produced commercially and hopefully we can get him to officially open the first House of Zen in Asia too.

Groovy! Excellent! Very Happy

Can visualize a lot of Zen-like golfers seeking enlightenment from each other.

Btw, the bar counter looks perfect for some arm bending, beer guzzling action!

When I am at the putting green, I was looking at the trackman mat. Since we cannot chip from tge putting mat, dunno can chip from the trackman mat onto the putting green or not?

those with the Zen putters have automatic entry...just flash your putters at the entrance. of course if you are using models before 2008, they do not have the necessary chip embedded.

sand bunkers, koi pond, crocodile pit are all under consideration at this point.

and those caught chipping from the mat to the green will be you know what. Shamusan will take care of those unpleasant matters.

the technical trainer was in last night to give his point of view and the same guy who did the national day sound will be installing the hidden speakers where landscape music will be played throughout the day.

as you can imagine, one side is rowdy and the other side will be simply Zen.

don"t be so typical singaporean leh...reminds me of the fine country teeshirt...

i have a customer who was chipping away and i allowed it...why??

anyway...common sense should prevail, otherwise we will have more signs than price tag in the shop.

but thank you for the suggestion.
