Your chance to play Golf in the Philippines, one of Asia's emerging golf destinations. There are more than 7,000 islands in the Philippines offering a very diverse landscape including pristine beaches, virgin rainforest and still-active volcanoes. As a former US colony English is widely spoken especially in the cities so it is easy to make yourself understood. It is estimated that there are nearly 100 golf courses in the Philippines and the majority of them are private members clubs so it is not that easy to play as a visitor unless you play with e member.
There are some spectacular courses here built in some quote unusual and often dramatic settings. Some of them have been built right in the centre of some of the major cities and with a premium on space you wonder how many of them have survived. Other courses are located by the sea and some wind their way through the beautiful tropical countryside but my favourite courses are those that have bene built higher up in the hills and mountains which offer wonderful views of the surrounding countryside.
Many of the best courses designers in the world have left their mark in the Philippines including Jack Nicklaus, Arnold Palmer, Gary Player and many others. Golf courses in the Philippines have hosted some very famous international tournaments including such events as The World Cup of golf and the Johnnie Walker Classic.
