Expanded into 64 hectares, Zamboanga Golf Course is one of Mindanao's major layouts of 18 holes. It has a fine layout with winding fairways, dog-legs situations and big greens planted to Korean Carpet Grass. It plays to par 72, course rating of 70 with a yardage of 6,404. Although the first nine has a somewhat flat terrain, its second nine is fairly rolling that skirts around Basilan Strait for a bit of ocean view. An interesting round is always in store for the average golfer or the proficient campaigner, as flexibility is assured with long tee mounds. The course has elevated greens which can be tricky. Instead of much bunkering around the greens and on the fairways, the challenge of this windy course lies in the abundance of trees.
