Situated on the Philippine island of Luzon, Tagaytay is a popular tourist town to the south of the capital city, Manila.
The stunning scenery and cool climate are what draws many people to this region of Philippines but one of the major attractions is golf. There are several world class golf courses in Tagaytay and they can each be included in a Philippines golf holiday.
Tagaytay is very easy to reach being so close to Manila. Having landed at Ninoy Aquino International Airport in Manila, you can make the short transfer to Tagaytay which is just under 65 kilometres away.
There are three main golf courses in Tagaytay and once settled at your hotel, you will be ready to enjoy them all. Arguably the most picturesque of the golf courses in Tagaytay is Tagaytay Highlands International Golf Club.
Here you will find an 18-hole golf course designed by Richard Bigler which has been described as one of the most exciting in Asia. As one might imagine from the name of the golf club, the terrain here is hilly and the changes in elevation throughout provide a good challenge. A cable car system has been installed to transport golfers around some parts of the course and this tells you everything you need to know in terms of elevation.
The 13th tee is 84 metres above the green and the 18th hole features a 150 yard wide gully, which gives you some idea of what to expect during a round at Tagaytay Highlands International Golf Club.
Some of the biggest names in golf have been hard at work in Philippines and Splendido Taal Golf Club was created by the legendary Greg Norman. Opened in 2002, this golf course surrounds the Taal volcano and provides tremendous views of the countryside and lake plus the cool air is a welcome treat from the lower elevations.
The course itself is an 18-hole, par-72 and boasts four tees, making it ideal for players of all abilities. In addition to the volcano, you can marvel at views of the lake and the mountain ranges of Grand Taal from several holes on the course. Water does come into play on a few holes but the bunkering is the main challenge, with the greens well-protected throughout.
Finally, we move on to Tagaytay Midlands Golf Club which is set in a spectacular forest 1,000 metres above Lake Taal. If you plan to play at Tagaytay Highlands International Golf Club, you should also include a round at Midlands Golf Club as the two are linked via a 48-seater funicular transport system.
The all-weather fairways are kept in good condition throughout the year and the large greens run true. Approach play is key to a low score at Tagaytay Midlands Golf Club and you must focus because it is very tempting to pull out your camera on almost every hole.
There is no doubt that golf courses in Tagaytay are some of the most spectacular in terms of scenery in the world. No golfing visit to Philippines is complete without playing the courses at Tagaytay.
