Ponderosa Golf Course

FWH7+96G, National Rd, Puerto Galera, 5203 Oriental Mindoro, Philippines

Situated in the picturesque municipality of Puerto Galera on Mindoro Island, you’ll find the Ponderosa Golf Course, the sole golf course in the vicinity. This delightful club offers a 9-hole, par 30 course that caters to golfers of all levels.

At Ponderosa Golf Course, golf enthusiasts can refine and test their short iron and game skills. The course eliminates the need for long irons, as it doesn’t feature lengthy drives along the tree-lined fairways. Instead, it presents a formidable challenge to players’ short game abilities. Nestled strategically amidst 22 hectares of steep mountainside, the nine holes of this course exhibit varying elevations throughout. In some sections, fairways dramatically descend from tee to green, necessitating players to traverse the course on foot.

Beyond its challenging course, Ponderosa Golf Club treats visitors to breathtaking vistas of the island’s beaches and bays, thanks to its location atop Mount Malasimbo. From this vantage point, players can admire the surrounding islands, stretching from the mountains to the enchanting Taal volcano, the smallest volcano in the Philippines. Following an invigorating round of golf, the club’s clubhouse offers a perfect spot to unwind, relax, and relish the captivating sunset.

Ponderosa Golf Club is conveniently situated on the side of Mt. Malasimbo, southwest of Puerto Galera, just a short distance from the popular White Beach resort enclave. Puerto Galera itself is located approximately 130 kilometers south of Manila, on the tranquil island of Mindoro.
