city golf

July 3, 2010

Someone asked me, “Why don’t you take up golf?”

My response, “HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHA. *pause* Oh God, you’re serious?”

First of all, I’m probably as tall as the golf club.

Secondly, sun, UV something, skin damage. Hello?

But thank god for INDOOR GOLF!

There’s this one small indoor golf place in Bangsar Shopping Centre called City Golf that my friends and I went to last weekend.

You basically just hit the ball to the screen and it calculates the pressure and direction to determine where it lands. And the difficulty changes depending on what surface your ball lands on; sand, rough etc. Wahhh I sound so cool talking golf language, but I actually don’t know what I’m talking about.

The boys loved it because they get to pretend they’re Tiger Woods (*or insert another golfer’s name here since Tiger Wood isn’t popular anymore*) without embarrassing themselves much. They get to create their own rules, choose glamour golf names and cheat however they liked (until the supervisor came and corrected them).

No one there will judge you.

I mean, really, the booth next to ours was this:

Little boy practising his skills.

He probably beat them all.

Hehe kidding.

The girls loved it because we could order food and drinks and they provide a couch for our camwhoring convenience.

Duck Boot and I

Ching and I felt like WAGs with our boys playing in the very important “tournament”.

This place is a great way to learn the basics of golf. I even picked up a term or two. Holes, par, urmm yeah that’s about it. The boys excitedly explained every detail of the game and we girls excitedly nodded and went “Ooohh” and “Aaaah”. Of course, this all went to waste as soon as I walked out of there.

Overall, CityGolf was great fun. The boys were happy, the girls were happy, everybody enjoyed themselves. I might even come again and join that kid. He made it look so easy.

Oh we also had some food at Chilis….nyummmmmm.

Btw, did you guys know Tiger Woods’ real name is Eldrick Tont Woods?

OK, this might be super old, but hey, it’s news to me!
