Golfing in Cebu
Therefore, it's probably no accident that several excellent championship courses are located in Cebu!
Mactan Island has a handy 18-hole course and driving range. Their club house setting is picturesque and their kitchen serves wonderful food. Perfect after a long day hacking the course!
Across the bridge from Mactan, you will find the more stately Cebu Country Club – one of the oldest clubs in the Philippines – and the gorgeous Alta Vista Golf Club. Both are superb courses (probably the best in Cebu), in great conditions and both provide excellent facilities.
