How many balls do you bring along with you to the course?
(yah, exclude THOSE 2 please)

How many is enough? Suspect

3 boxes for a beginner like me?? Enough? Embarassed

Depends on the course, for beginners, I would suggest as many as you can squeeze into the bag. You might hit into water, into rough, into bushes, or sometimes, just cannot find the ball.

Also, maybe for first few times, just use 2nd hand balls until you are confident enough.

Depending on the courses. Place like Tj Puteri makes me bring more balls due to the amount of water obstacles. Other than that 10-20 balls is more than enough

Bring as much as you can!... The first time I go green.. so gullible... only bring 3... end up 1st hole clear stock liao... (what to do... me so 天真 one) Laughing

Had to keep borrowing balls from my then coach... felt damn uncomfortable and uneasy... cos dunno how many more I gonna lose...

So just bring as much as you can... so you can enjoy the game at ease lor... Very Happy

golfjoy, i recall my virgin game on the course.. lost about 12 balls. but there was not so much water and i always search for my ball every hole.

if you don't feel confident on the course.. at least be confident that by hole 18 you should still have 10 over balls left. that's one thing less to worry about! not pack up before 9 holes when you run out of balls..

First time on course. Bring as many as possible. But normally halfway house got sell one.

Also try to use cheap 2nd hand so that not so heart pain.

Actually my virgin game I did not lose ball much. Because the ball all cannot fly. So they roll or just centimeter away.

That's what happened to me Laughing

Was beginning to suspect that I might have more potential for gateball after the 2nd hole

Hi Bomby we are about sama sama + - a couple of balls. Played with a beginner friend once who brought maybe 3/4 balls and within 3 holes started borrowing balls from me. Never gotten asked to play with me from there on and the reason was not because he was a beginner. Evil or Very Mad
