Wack Wack Golf Course Description
One of the country’s most exclusive and elite golf clubs is the Wack Wack Golf & Country Club. Located directly in the city of Mandaluyong, the club was built in 1930 by the American resident William Shaw who established the club’s two fine 18-hole championship courses. It was the East and the West courses.
The East course is a bit longer and tougher of the two. The internationally known East course is also host to some of the countries very prestigious events such as the Asian Circuit, Philippine Golf Open Championship, and the World Cup that was held in 1977. Its small rolling and elevated greens, water hazards, and long fairways are what makes the course such a good golf venue for these elite tournaments. A particular favorite among its members is the recognized Hole No. 8, which gives quite a challenge because of the hazards that players will find on the course. A tricky Par-3, Hole No. 8, has been known to be a “make-or-break” hole even for the seasoned professional golfers.
