Most private courses in Singapore that allow non-members to play (usually week days only) require players to have a proficiency certificate or a handicap. Some beginner lessons offered at local golf schools offer this a part of the package or as a stand alone item..PC test is usually comprised of classroom lesson eg golf etiquette and rule along with some actual green play to confirm you can get the ball in the air..:-)
Marina Bay and quite a few of the local ranges offer lessons so you should check with them on costs
There are couple of beginner public courses eg Executive (Mandai) and Green Fairways (Bukit Timah) that do not have any real requirements
For Marina bay if you don't have valid PC card you'll need to pass a test (that cast $10) to paly
As well all the time I've played in JB..they have not required specific qualification either.

Happy Golfing!

Good Day, Thanks very much for your pointers. I'm very much in need of a PC. Having said that, you mentioned, in JB, playing there doesn't require a PC or anything like that? Perhaps you could specify more? I'm keen to try in JB since there's no qualifications needed? What are the cost involved playin in JB?

Also in Singapore, how much does it cost to have one round of 18 or 9 hole golf?

Please advice.

Singapore costs will vary quite a bit..
For 9 holes public courses as mentioned you can try Executive (Mandai) and Green Fairways (Bukit Timah)..both are beginner courses and cost $30-50 (depending on if its a weekday or weekend)
Most private courses are only available for visitors during weekday and cost anywhere from $100-300 for green+cart fees for 18 holes. This is a good link for more details on private course in Singapore

For JB from 1st hand perspective I've only played at Sebana cove & Palm resort..For Sebana they offer a package that covers ferry, green fee+cart & lunch that comes up to around 100 SGD per person..Palm resort was also around the same price (excluding ferry) but you need to drive there. Again these places would be cheaper during weekdays.

Anyone elses input on decent spots to play in Singapore/Malaysia would be most welcome :-)

Has anyone managed to fix up a game yet?

I have only played a handful of times in the past 3 years, before that I was playing to about an 18 or 20 handicap, so my game has probably slipped considerably since then.

I would really like to join a group of golfers of similar level to try out the 9 hole or 18 hole courses at The Executive Club. Mostly par 3s and not overly expensive.

Is anyone interested?

hello , good day to all,
i personally like austin hills, beautiful scenary and also wonderful landscape that you see, if you enjoy flowers and trees like I do.

I usually play in Malaysia as I have only a PC and I’m enjoying every golf trip. I started lessons in aug 07, and have since tried several courses in Malaysia, my playing is still not too consistant on course even though I enjoy every single game.

Looking for golf buddies too…

female golf newbie looking for fellow golf enthusiasts

Post by bright_wave » Sun, 21 Sep 2008 1:15 pm

Hey all,

I've just started learning golf 2 months ago and have just gotten my PC. Going for my handicap lessons next month. I'm looking for fellow golf enthusiasts to go golfing with. I'm usually at the bukit batok driving range on sats but I am keen to explore other ranges too.

weekdays are not too good for me. I'm also interested to explore courses outside of Singapore!

PM me and let's get together for some golf!
