Course Review

Golfers – both professional and amateur – are sure in for a treat when they play in Canlubang Golf & Country Club. The club offers the best of both worlds: the excitement of playing challenging holes, and being an escape from the hustle and bustle of life. One can really only expect a wonderful round of golf in this place. Here is a short review on this great club:

The North and The South

Canlubang Golf is actually two courses, the North and the South. The North’s known for its rather long and generous fairways. A highlight of this course is Hole 17, a par 5 monster with a ditch right after the fairway. To make things worse – or in other cases, exciting – this hole also contains the one of the smallest greens in the club. Golfers playing in this hole would definitely need to have accurate shots.

The South, on the other hand, is otherwise known for its short – yet surprisingly challenging at some parts – length. Hole 5 is particularly a favorite among players, which is known for the deep ravine right smack in the middle.

Nevertheless, what makes each course such a hit is the layout. Both gives out a great sense of nature and challenge, that actually makes you experience a different game each time you visit. Plus, the North has a wonderful twin course that’ll dazzle any club visitor, and the South has a jaw-dropping view of a deep ravine!

Nature at its Best

The entire layout of Canlubang Golf is situated right below a mountain (Mt. Makiling). As noted by its staff members, the club’s layout features just placing the hazards (mostly the traps and bunkers) along the natural terrain – which means that players actually play in the most natural form. This not only provides a different kind of challenge, but also creates a sense of nature’s appreciation for visitors.

Golf Pillar

Almost at its 40th year (actually, the club has just celebrated its 36th anniversary), Canlubang Golf is a tried and tested pillar of the Philippine Golfing scene. Premier tournaments have graced the greens, and golf legends have stepped in to test their mettle in this club. Also, the club enjoys a steady and faithful following from players, and as well international golf standards, with the club consistently winning golf accolades throughout the years.

Canlubang Golf definitely will provide players from all levels a wonderful golfing experience. The club gives the perfect balance of relaxation and strategy, with the added benefit of being one of the top courses to visit in the Philippines. Make sure to play at this club.

    Probably not worth trying to play here as a visitor. I called in advance, asked if visitors could play and explained my wife would be joining me as a non player. I asked if golf carts were available (“yes”) and if I needed to make a tee-time reservation (“no, just come out”).

    When I arrived it was lightly raining, but a golf cart with a cover would take care of that. “Sorry sir there are no golf carts”, was the answer, “walking only”. Needless to say that was not going to work in the rain and with a non-playing spouse along for the ride. We declined and drove back to Manila.

    I expected more from a golf club that is billed as one of the top courses in the country and charges very high fees. Skip this one.

      Hi Doug!

      Sorry to hear that your experience at Canlubang wasn’t a great one. We actually received your inquiry on November 10 and replied back, but never heard back from you. If you want to book next time with Canlubang, we will not only be able to get you a discount off green fees, but also guarantee you a tee time plus a golf cart. It’s a part of our service. This course treats GolfPH endorsed players really well and I hope that you will give this course another chance in the future or let us assist you in your next golfing needs in the Philippines!

      Thanks for letting us know!

      Sincerely,
      GolfPH

    I’m not your typical golfer – typical in the sense that I strive to get every golfing detail down, from attire to current tournament/events. I also do admit that I’m not the best golfer out there.

    What I do like about golf is the relaxation it brings. It probably has got to with the serene atmosphere that common greens provide. It also has got to be the sort of mental exercise it brings to players, trying to find out the best – and most effortless – way on sinking that hole. To sum it up, I’m an average, yet appreciative-to-the-game golfer!

    So it did made me smile when I got the chance to play at the Canlubang Golf & Country Club. What caught my attention was the large scale of the course: it was pure serenity, a setting of grand golfing proportions.

    There are actually 2 courses in the Canlubang Golf & Country Club, the North and South Courses. Apparently, the North Course is the harder of the two, so I politely chose the South Course instead. And I sure was in for a treat! The South Course gave me a great view of nearby Laguna Bay. It was a welcome distraction, considering that I’m actually having trouble on the “easy” course!

    What was most memorable on the South Course was the ravine. I didn’t expect that I would need to shoot over one! It was a good thing my caddie gave me the right advice – I saw my ball sail right over!

    I sure am coming back for more. I might even try the North Course for a change. For me, the Canlubang Golf & Country Club has lots of surprises in store, that every visit is sure to be different and more exciting!

    Canlubang still remains one of my favourite Golf clubs here. Both 18 holes are very different but the landscapes surrounding each include some lovely views and they are well maintained. Both courses have their fare share of challenging holes across either water or very deep ravines.

    The food is always excellent there especially the sizzling gambas and it’s so nice to sit on the verandah after 18 holes to watch other golfers attempt to finish either the 18th or 9th holes of the North Course.

    Playing at Canlubang is always a great day out, the staff are very accommodating.

    Nice course….good looking caddies……………


  5. CORA & RICHARD LYNCH

    Canlubang South Course is the prettiest course in southern Luzon – a real test but very enjoyable. The north course is tougher and generally gets the better of us. Order your sizzling gambas before you start to make sure you have something great to look forward to.

      exquisite taste! and youre right, their gambas is just awesome. good thing you enjoyed despite the challenges.
