Royal Northwoods Golf Country Club

Holes 18 | Par 0 | Length 0 m / 0 y | Type Parkland | Architect Graham Marsh

If you are travelling to the Philippines to play golf, then you need to head for the Royal Northwoods Golf & Country Club.

Designed by Australian golfer and course architect Graham Marsh, construction began in 1999 and was completed in 2001. Although initially only 9 holes were completed within the first year, the full 18 took a little longer than planned to open.

Predominantly a private members course Royal Northwoods is still open to visitors and getting a tee time is relatively easy, especially with the use of a booking agent such as GolfSavers.

The practice facilities are what golfers come to expect from a private members club, large and well equipped with a driving range and various greens for the practice of the most important area of the game.

A beautiful clubhouse, which offers both the fundamental services that golfers require and the more luxurious services of an on-course hotel merge to create the perfect resort location.

Royal Northwoods can be found almost 2 hours from Manilla, and although a little way from the city, it is more than worth the drive.

At 6776 yards, the course is not particularly long, but the intelligent design by Marsh has created a course that is interesting and challenging to play.

As mentioned the course is not the longest, but deep bunkers, that seem to be perfectly placed to cause the most difficult of problems for even the most gifted golfer.

I have to mention the quality of the greens, which are quite simply superb. Maintainence in general is second to none, and the attention to detail is apparent at every turn.

The challenge that the course possesses is immediately obvious, the hardest hole on the course is the 2nd.  A par four that requires a pin-point accurate drive that is also long. Too far left and you will find a watery grave, not far enough left and your approach to the green will be blocked out by the enormous bamboos that protect the hole.

A challenger for the signature hole is the 14th, a par four that is split by the stream that runs the length of the hole, creating the most beautiful of holes, obviously challenging bamboo comes into play again as it borders the stream.

Considered the signature hole is the last. A short, up-hill par four that requires both guile and nerve. A dogleg, protected by a bunker and a resident banana tree is the challenge for the tee shot and the approach to the small double tiered green requires good club selection.

Royal Northwoods is a stunning layout and the potential difficulties of getting a tee are no ore than a hindrance.

The  practice  facilities  are  what  golfers  come  to  expect  from  a  private  members  club,  large  and  well  equipped  with  a  driving  range  and  various  greens  for  the  practice  of  the  most  important  area  of  the  game.

\n

A  beautiful  clubhouse,  which  offers  both  the  fundamental  services  that  golfers  require  and  the  more  luxurious  services  of  an  on-course  hotel  merge  to  create  the  perfect  resort  location.

\n

Royal  Northwoods  can  be  found  almost  2  hours  from  Manilla,  and  although  a  little  way  from  the  city,  it  is  more  than  worth  the  drive.

\n

At  6776  yards,  the  course  is  not  particularly  long,  but  the  intelligent  design  by  Marsh  has  created  a  course  that  is  interesting  and  challenging  to  play.

\n

As  mentioned  the  course  is  not  the  longest,  but  deep  bunkers,  that  seem  to  be  perfectly  placed  to  cause  the  most  difficult  of  problems  for  even  the  most  gifted  golfer.

\n

I  have  to  mention  the  quality  of  the  greens,  which  are  quite  simply  superb.  Maintainence  in  general  is  second  to  none,  and  the  attention  to  detail  is  apparent  at  every  turn.

\n

The  challenge  that  the  course  possesses  is  immediately  obvious,  the  hardest  hole  on  the  course  is  the  2nd.   A  par  four  that  requires  a  pin-point  accurate  drive  that  is  also  long.  Too  far  left  and  you  will  find  a  watery  grave,  not  far  enough  left  and  your  approach  to  the  green  will  be  blocked  out  by  the  enormous  bamboos  that  protect  the  hole.

\n

A  challenger  for  the  signature  hole  is  the  14th,  a  par  four  that  is  split  by  the  stream  that  runs  the  length  of  the  hole,  creating  the  most  beautiful  of  holes,  obviously  challenging  bamboo  comes  into  play  again  as  it  borders  the  stream.

\n

Considered  the  signature  hole  is  the  last.  A  short,  up-hill  par  four  that  requires  both  guile  and  nerve.  A  dogleg,  protected  by  a  bunker  and  a  resident  banana  tree  is  the  challenge  for  the  tee  shot  and  the  approach  to  the  small  double  tiered  green  requires  good  club  selection.

\n

Royal  Northwoods  is  a  stunning  layout  and  the  potential  difficulties  of  getting  a  tee  are  no  ore  than  a  hindrance.
