PostSubject: Cheapest Range for practice   Fri Nov 12, 2010 1:31 pm

Dear all,

I am not trying to start a war, but I like to know if there are cheaper per ball per dispenser.
I usually hang around in the east, so I am very unfamiliar with the ones on the west.

I do drive, so I'm cool to go "see see look look" at other driving range.

I usually hang around toa payoh if I want to "see" my accuracy. But for other practices, Bishan seems to be the most affordable ones.

Have a great practice weekend friends!

CDAN has one hour unlimited if you go off-peak.

For members, it is $6.00 for 100 balls, $3.00 for 50 balls.
For non-members, it is $8.00 for 100 balss, $4.00 for 50 balls.
But when you top up $50, they give you 350 balls free...

So, for $50, you get 350 + 800 = 1150 balls... 4.3 cents per ball.

Got to look at the condition of the balls and the mat too. No point paying cheap for the balls where you are getting badly conditioned balls and almost worn out mats. Badly conditioned ball may damaged your clubs and worn out mats may injured your elbows. These are two reasons why i am going to stop going bishan driving range even when the range is of walking distance away.

Strongly Recommend MBGC if you stay near the city.

Point to Note: Petrol cost will supersede the bulk of cost of *many small little balls*
