Don't know if Nam Heng course is still around?

I vaguely it is next to a river.

Something like Marina Bay Golf Course, no trees, no water... flat land...

More parkland rather than links though

Don't you find repeating the same holes boring?

Some of the colonial 9-holers have different tee-box locations and in any case, it is very possible that one does not land at the same places as the 1st round

Also, with the knowledge gleaned from the 1st round, one will have a chance to "attack" the greens and hopefully get a better result as compared to the 1st round

Ok, my personal opinion of 9 holes course are for:

1. Continuation of 18 holes if a golfer do not have enough of the game.
2. Practice round on certain aspect of a golfer's game.
3. Insufficient/could not spare enough time for a full 18 holes game.
4, No longer a challenge since you already know the layout from playing the "1st nine".
5. You can only better your score from the "1st nine".

TDO, I am same with you as far as 9-holes course is concerned. To me, playing 9 holes is just like having foreplay without going into the hole *ahem*.

As for links course, I have played some in Perth. Super nice and the wind was incredibly strong. I remember I have to use a 6i for 100m in and barely made it on the green because of the strong head wind.

"The more open Melati plays as a links course, an out-and-back layout with a first tee only start....."

OMG... how can anybody put Melati and links course in the same sentence....
