Manila is the capital city of the Philippines, located in South East Asia.

An incredible 7,000 islands make up the country with the largest being Luzon, home Manila.  Thanks to the popularity of the locals along, with visiting golfers, the country has a fantastic selection of golf courses, especially around Manila.
