Located in Calatagan, Batangas, about 125 kilometers to the south of Manila, Calatagan Golf Club is promised to bring visitors the most relaxing golf experience ever. It was fashioned in 1978 by a world-famous golf architect – Robert Trent Jones Jr. and his fellow Don Enrique.
After three hours of driving from the center of Manila, you will arrive at Calatagan Golf Club – a truly good-looking course at the mouth of Pagapas Bay. The fairways and greens here are made from carabao and zoysia matrella grasses, which are endemic to the Philippines. That is the reason why they are always in good condition and bring visitors the best experience. Facilitated with tricky hazards and long fairways, golfers to this course can expect some challenging games they haven’t faced before. The hilly topography, bunkers, and rolling greens are expected to add more difficulties to the game.
Not only play golf, but you will also have a chance to admire a lot of scenic spots within the grounds of Calatagan Golf Club. As recommended above, this course is set on the headland of Calatagan so you can enjoy the whole breathtaking view of the West Philippines Sea. Enjoy viewing flowers? Here you will see some strange ones such as Kalachuchi, Golden Shower, African Tulips, etc. After golf time, take some time to sightsee the whole course. Calatagan Golf Club will never make you disappointed.
