First Encounter with Golf @ MaxSwing offered a deal of S$38 for 1 hour of indoor golf at MaxSwing@Orchard Central, plus coaching!  It is such a good deal then how can I miss it?

MaxSwing is located on the 4th floor of Orchard Central, right next door to the even more expensive flight simulation shop.  It is indoor, with air conditioning, so it is perfect for the rainy season of tropical Singapore.  In addition, you can check out your own swing speed.  Well, it somehow looks like a giant arcade game, I don't disagree.

Golf balls will come up automatically, although that mechanism doesn't seem to be very robustly designed.  During our short 1-hour sting with golf, it jammed :(

Our coach is an old grandfather, David, a very kind and patient man.  He is also a PGA professional golf more many decades!  Ok, back to my golf experience.  David taught us the basics for golf, as we are so green, knowing next to nothing about golf.

While I was at the counter waiting for the receptionist to bring us to the indoor golf room, I overheard a conversation between the receptionist and a guy enquiring about the cost of hiring a coach.  Guess the price?  S$100/hr!

At the end of the 1 hour session, we managed at least to hit the golf ball, and then getting a bit interested in this interesting but a bit expensive sports.  If there is another opportunity to try this, for sure I will grap that opportunity, if the cost is reasonable.
