The Del Monte Golf Course, operated by Del Monte Philippines, Inc., is located within the vast Del Monte Plantation in the highlands of Bukidnon. It is composed of 18 holes set on an undulating land of well-kept verdant roughs and fairways. Located approximately 600 meters above sea level, the weather is perpetually moderate to cool. Features of the golf course include challenging fairways lined with trees on both sides, sand traps and manmade lakes which call for accurate drives. Large and tricky greens likewise provide a good bite to green shots. The course calls for very accurate shots. The par 3 12th often dubbed as the �Waterloo Hole� needs a carry of 210 yards over water. The 16th, the �Warne�s Hole�, was aptly named when one of Del Monte�s executives Thomas Warne sent 36 balls into the lake in 1938. A warm-up at the scenic countryside driving range sets the golfer ready for a slopy front nine. The relatively flatter back nine around the 5-hectare Cawayanon lake should keep one challenged until he finally gets through the 18th for a glass of cold pineapple juice drink and the juicy Del Monte steak at the Clubhouse.
