History of Golf Here

In spite of the humidity and heat, golf seems to be very popular in the country. It all started quite a long time ago – supposedly brought over by the British men who worked for the Manila Railway Company.

Apparently with ample time on their hands and a surplus of caddies available to haul one’s clubs and the occasional beer, the Brits built a 3-hole course somewhere in the paddy fields around Intramuros, now in the centre of the capital city.

The sport became popular enough that by 1901, a 9-hole course was built next to the railway station in Caloocan.

Now there are in fact around 111 Golf Courses in the Philippines, many around Manila and spread out throughout 5,000 of those islands.
