They will not disappoint you!

Manila Golf Courses

Manila has a wide variety of golf courses designed by some of the truly greats of the sport, Jack Nicklaus, Greg Norman, Robert Trent Jones Jr, Gary Player and Arnold Palmer.

If you want some world class Philippines golf courses that are easily accessible from Manila then you should try the ones I have listed below.

All of these Philippines Golf Courses are within an hour and a half of Manila, but then again,, Manila traffic being what it is, a great big moving animal, you may want to try accommodation closer to the particular Manila golf course.


Camp John Hay Golf Course

Camp John Hay Golf Course Baguio

Camp John Hay Golf Course is in Baguio and is real cool, literally that is. Being at a higher elevation the city misses out on the humidity of the coastal areas.

A welcome relief from the heat, but that does not mean yo have to miss out on your favorite sport!

Evercrest Golf Club & Resort

Evercrest Golf Club and Resort

The Evercrest Golf Club & Resort is a 2 hour drive south of Manila, in clean fresh air! Hard to believe but true.

The course has some challenging holes, particularly holes 4 & 11, unless you are like me when every hole is a challenge! The clubhouse has everything you need and the gold pros are very helpful.

Manila Southwoods Golf & Country Club – Legends Course

Manila Southwoods Golf & Country Club – Legends Course

The Manila Southwoods Golf Legends Course is a pretty friendly course, which is good for me as I need all the friendliness’ I can get!

Now if you are a more accomplished golfer than me, which would not be hard, then you should be able to shoot some low scores.

The Orchard Golf & Country Club – Palmer Course

The Orchard Golf & Country Club – Palmer Course

If you like large bunkers and lakes then the Orchard Golf Palmer Course is the one for you.

It is an extremely scenic course which wanders through mango groves, a true Arnold Palmer design.

Make sure you tee off on the player Course as well.

The Orchard Golf & Country Club – Player Course

The Orchard Golf & Country Club – Player Course

The Orchard Golf Player Course is what I call a neat open course. Not too many trees will get in the way of your golf ball here, but, there is always a “but”, the wind plays a huge influence on your shots.

Your seemingly beautiful straight drive down the fairway suddenly fades and lands neatly in the water, but hey there were no trees there!

Sherwood Hills Golf Club

Sherwood Hills Golf Club

The Sherwood Hills Golf Club is a nice challenging golf course designed by The Golden Bear himself.

The front 9, in my opinion is more difficult than the back nine, but when the wind blows here, it effects all the holes.

A great course which you can easily play again and again.
