There is also a new "range" at Hillview Avenue where the old HDB estate used to be. Since the flats were demolished, it is now a huge patch of grass land with trees. I have seen a few golfers practicing there on several occasions. Strange that there isn't any signboard that asks people to stay away. Guess it is legal then?

Wow!!
Tats wat I intended to do for my home neh..

I live HDB and tot of using 1 room for chipping practise.
Probably with a cushion like you have but taller and bigger, then mark with circles and practise trajectory. keke.

When I was staying at my previous place, the condo had a "driving range." Actually, they were 2 driving range bays and a big net at the end. The japs in the condo enjoyed it.

Yeah, I agree. Very little point, to be honest. The only thing it did was to test the sound of your club hitting the ball. Oh.. it helps to relieve tension too Wink

Wow... that one looks almost industrial in size. It's easy to have in countries like the US where homes are quite huge. Here, you'll have to borrow your neighbors land to play.

At US$799, I'd rather go to the range and pay to practice chipping/putting.

Wa..

This sign \ _ / is very architectural leh.. dun quite understand.

I think the open area is where I stand and hit the ball right?
And the underscore & slash are the net right?

Oh ya hor.. just buy 3 sets of roller blind to replace as net hor..
Good Idea leh.. cheap & I think effective.

Print St Andrew? I paste FHM better..
