Manila Golf is the most prestigious club in the Philippines. It is situated in one of the nicest residential areas in Manila, and is only a few minutes to the heart of the business district. Strictly members only so I would encourage one to drop whatever they're doing and play here if invited.
The layout has been recently renovated to make it more challenging, but due to space constraints, it still plays as a short inner city course. All par 5s are reachable, with a sprinkling of shortish tricky par 4s and only one long par 3 (about 210 yards from the tips) on the back 9. Lot of OBs and water hazards, but all in all still very friendly to play. Given the stature of the club, the entire facility is very well maintained, and there is still a palpable air of old school golf club decorum.
All in all it is a very enjoyable track, but not excellent due to the lack of length and challenge even from the tips. Great senior's course.
