Someone once remarked that walking through the gate of the Fairways and Bluewater Boracay Club was like walking into a postcard paradise!
Actually I couldn’t agree more. This 18 hole Par 72 golf course was designed by Graham Marsh and keeping true to Graham Marsh’s views of what an ideal golf course should be, this 6034 yard golf course is sculptured with every hole to give every player a sporting chance.
The fairways are dominated by gentle mounds and dotted with bunkers which test the skills of the experienced golfer and yet giving the high handicapper a fair and rewarding game.
Initially a private member’s only club, the Fairways and Bluewater Boracay, is now open to the public and has been for about a year.
The club also played host to the third round of the Johnnie Walker Tour in 1997. The Swede Jesper Parnevik managed to shoot a 68 here on that day.
Every year this club also host the RP open on the Asia Golf Tour. The front 9 of the grounds are comparatively flat with water traps around most of the holes set against the jungle landscape.
The back 9 have an entirely different scene with bumpier mounds and elevated fairways with the sea view, don't let the view distracted you.
Because the white sand on the beaches of Boracay are protected, the sand in all the bunkers are imported and are fluffier and fairer. The greens are also multi-tiered which makes putting quite a challenge.
One of the hardest holes to play at the Fairways and Bluewater Boracay is probably the 525 yards Par 5 # 14 hole.
The terrain of the fairway makes distance gauging a little deceiving. So it’s best to play it safe with this hole.
However the signature hole at this course will undoubtedly be the 143 yards par 3 # 16 hole.
This hole boast of a 90 foot drop from the back of the tee down to the green.
Tip: Aim for the right of the green to avoid the main bunkers fringing this hole.
The rates to play here for non members are reasonable.

The resort also has a hotel which you can stay at. Lunch at the clubhouse’s restaurant is a little expensive but still nothing like what it cost in America.
The service here is excellent as well. My glass gets topped up every time it gets half empty or full, depending on how well you played I guess!
There is also a pro shop here, however the selections are pretty limited and pricey as well.
One word of advice that you should bear in mind when playing here is to tee off early in the morning. It can get extremely hot during the later part of the morning and day.
