I believe the new mat is for the academy. They also ordered new balls for their used. Hopefully BKDR will get the new one as well.

On Monday morning, around 50 students came by bus . It was appalling the way the lesson was conducted. The coach was shouting out instructions at the top of his voice to the students who lined up at the upper bays like an army general n at his count of "satu dua tiga!!!" the students simultaneously fired the golf balls like missiles in every direction, a handful went far left n below directly on the practice grass where I was.

Is this the way lessons r conducted by golf academies??

my 2 sens:

Guthrie's "18 hole course" is actually an "18 hole TRAINING course".

Basically, if you go there to have a round of golf with your buddies and expect UPM or Uniten standards- YOU WILL BE FRUSTRATED! It's below that. On average, hole distance is 120-100meters. Everything is Par 3.

But, if you go with the intention to improve your short game, ie to train- this place is awesome!

That said, since playing there for the past month-
# the ground is always soggy and wet. Don't wear white shoes or socks.. perhaps one of those Hi-Tech rubber golf shoes is a good investment..
# expect to lose balls.. the rough is thick, and sometimes, balls just disappear into the wet greens
# on weekends, expect 3-4 flights.. on weekdays you'd most likely have all 18 holes to yourself
# there's a guy who runs a fitting shop there, Aswan.. very passionate about golf (translated: he will take time to properly do his job.. not one of those rushed-jobs)

Hi all,

I'm a regular at Guthrie (took the monthly membership option). I take my kids there almost every weekend, coz it's one of the few kid-friendly places in KL (or perhaps the ONLY one!!)

Based on our recent trip- the place is now under new management and to sum up the pitch conditions- DON'T GO THERE!

1) grass badly maintained = kemuncup on the tee box!! We even lost balls on the fairway!!
2) only 3 holes have flags and proper holes = macam mana nak aim kalau tak tahu pin kat mana?
3) greens are brown (rumput mati) = green speed varies
4) greens are uneven = bump, bump, bump
5) ant mounds on every green
6) the canteen is dirty

and they still charge full fees (if you see my checklist, they should've closed the place for maintenance work, instead of charging people, only to disappoint them..)

to the new management, if you are reading this, please sort out the above issues.. My kids and I enjoyed [note: PAST TENSE] going there, but lately, we are sadden by the poor condition.. we're not asking for much... just potong rumput and jaga green..

will update MGC if things get better.. till then, DON'T GO THERE!!

From the info that I got..
The new mgmt will start to upgrade the driving range first, then will upgrade the front with a putting and chipping green. Second phase will only upgrade the playing field to a proper Par 3 course, with night golfing too. These upgrades may take 6 to 12 months. The new range balls have arrived..

The offer has stopped. But will continue as soon as the driving range upgrades are completed.
Now the offer is RM10 for 150 balls

Hitting on grass now is just temporary...now is not the proper ground..too hard..don't injure yourself.
For updated info, please refer to my earlier post..
