I woke up early in the morning feeling dizzy knowing I did not get a good night sleep. No thanks to my diarrhea, but despite my mishap, I played golf across the new golf course netting installation with my best bud at KGC.
The journey from Keramat AU takes about 40 minutes. We had to take the MRR2, on to Kesas and GPS some part of the way. Going there was a breeze since most of KLites are stilll hung over from weekend party. Heading back took us 1 hour, no thanks to the traffic.
The road isn’t exactly smooth, there’s a lot of huge bumpers, gravels and uneven roads along the way.
When we reached there, we were greeted by some Nepal or Bangladeshi, the first thing they asked was “Bola ada boss? Kalau takda RM20 for 12.” That was bad, although I do appreciate the concern. But think about it, if you’re going to play golf, wouldn’t you at least have all your equipment ready the night before? Like make sure you bring your Best Irons for Mid Handicappers. When I got to the counter, I told the girl some friend of mine made a booking (but actually I don’t know whether he did or not). She asked for her superior, whom spewed pretty nasty word, “Lain kali tak bole datang macam ni je, kene booking, nasib baik harini tak banyak flight.” Man that was cold and rude. I really wanted to leave the place and spend my money elsewhere but knowing that my best bud will be heading to West Coast in the evening, I shrugged and pretended I didn’t hear a thing.
I’m not so sure what’s so great about the Club, but I was told this is where noob golfers go to. They charged a frigging RM 340 for the two of us. That’s RM 170 each, and I have never paid that much for a such an easy course, with weak-sluggish buggy and drainy course. We also got RM30 food voucher, which we don’t really need. I guess they wanted to keep kitchen alive.
Most noob places charges RM100 plus minus, but RM170 is definitely a ripoff, especially if you have rude fat desk girl and golf ball pushers.
The Course (2/5)
It’s definitely a lot of fun playing with my Skis. We laughed a lot, made fun of people and played an extra ball sometimes. But seriously, the course is a lot fun. The fairways is wide, makes it look near when actually it’s 300 meters away.
I’d give a 4/5 if it wasn’t for the the things above.
The Fairway (3/5)
We played early in the morning, there was no running away from plugged ball. (Plugged is when your ball sank into the ground). As the day progressed, the fairway hardened, it got pretty fun.
The Rough (3/5)
The grass wasn’t too tall. It was pretty easy to strike the wood and hybrid.
The Green (1/5)
Every single green on the course has a mind of it’s own. Sometimes it’s fast, sometimes it’s slow. It was very hard to predict where it was heading. So the best way was to aim for the pin and control the speed of the roll.
The Companies (1/5)
Like I said, this is a noob’s course. There was these group of people who wore pretty striking shirts, pants and shoes, or practically showered themselves with golf brands like those found in the Intech EZ Roll chipper reviews and other golf magazines. And boy, did they ‘play’ well. I don’t mean to laugh at people, but 5 strokes and they’re only at 150 meter marker. It took hours for them to finish a simple Par 3.
The next crowd was some uncles, playing like their in PGA or something. They were really taking they’re own sweet time. We swing anyway, and it landed very close to them. These fella got upset and yelled at us when we met at one of the crossroad, although we’ve apologized many times. It came to a point where I almost raised my putter. But knowing we were wrong, we kept our heads low.
In all honesty, just let us pass. Don’t hog the course.
I’m not setting my foot there anymore, end of story.
