Are You looking for just a normal driving range to go on your own? Or golf instructor to help you with your swing at the driving range? Or Virtual Golf indoors in the AC with or without an instructor? If you let me know I've got loads of suggestions depending on what you are looking for!

Are you asking about golf dirving ranges? or a good instructor?

You can practise your swings at any of the ranges, they aren't too bad, common ones are the one in east coast, or queenstown, and couple of others.

Do a search you'll find out

As for class, I've got some places in mind too, if you want more info let me know.

For beginners without the posh views etc , go to the driving range at Asian Golf Academy at Sin Ming Ave. You just need to bring your own gold clubs and gloves. Over there you need to buy a 'top up card ' from them for the balls.

I feel that it is a decent and cheap place for beginners if you want to practice your swing.

Enjoy!! It's fun!! But you need to invest in a good pair of gloves.(gloves-to avoid blisters!)

You must be gripping the club incorrectly - I can hit 200+ balls and not suffer from blisters. The club must be 'turning' in your hand. Could also be due to bad grips. ie old, on your clubs
The most incomprehensible thing about the world is that it is at all comprehensible.

Be patient toward all that is unsolved in your heart. Do not now seek the answers, which cannot be given you because you would not be able to live the questions now... Perhaps you will then gradually, without noticing it, live... into the answer ~Rainer Maria Rilke~

Back then i was excited to learn golf... so off to the driving range without gloves... learning from my boss and hitting as many as i can...the problem i have back then was not the club but i kept bending my left arm/elbow.:(
