The course at Splendido Taal Golf Club offers a great deal of variety and took four years to construct, with significant shaping and moulding taking place in the creation of the course. You will find a nice mix of short and long holes at Splendido Taal Golf Club, with large bunkers being the feature hazard. In fact, some of the bunkers are huge and you will struggle to find larger hazards on any golf course around Manila.
The first hole offers a glimpse of what to expect throughout the round at Splendido Taal Golf Club. It is a par-5 hole but the fairway stretches downhill from tee to green and the hole plays quite short. Long hitters should be able to find the green in two shots and this presents an opportunity for a great start to the round.
However, the green can prove very tricky and is well protected by bunkers, so you must be accurate on your approach or suffer the consequences.
While the opening hole was a gentle par-5, get ready for a much tougher test from the tee on the second hole. The second at Splendido Taal Golf Club plays to 559 yards and you will need a long tee shot to carry the ravine and find the fairway. It can be daunting prospect, even for big hitters and provides a huge contrast with the first hole.
Splendido Taal Golf Club can lull you into a false sense of security and the first two holes are a great example. There will be holes when you believe you can score low and others which you will find tough to get a par and this makes for a very exciting round of golf.
The Spanish-Mediterranean style clubhouse features locker rooms and two high quality restaurants. You can often smell the aroma from the Ladera Golfers’ Lounge and the La Esquina Spanish Restaurant and both of these are a good place to enjoy a meal following a great round of golf at Splendido Taal Golf Club.
