Peninsula Golf Club, The

PBR Housing Compound, Limay, Bataan Tel.: (63-47) 244-5949 to 58 loc. 225/455

The Peninsula Golf Course is a short privately-owned, 18-hole golf course laid out around Petron Bataan Refinery's Housing Compound. A pair of tee-boxes is provided for each hole to complete an 18-hole round of golf. It is a par 68 golf course rating of 65.4 and a corresponding slope of 116. Carabao grass grows on wide and undulating fairways. On most of the small, firm and elevated greens, you get a panoramic view of Manila Bay with the Metropolis' skyline etched in the background. Looking west, you see the majestic mountain ranges that fortified the Bataan Peninsula from unfriendly forces during World War II. Errant tee shots are penalized by natural obstructions of tall pine and/or mango trees on one side and uneven lie on the other making your recovery shot quite difficult to execute. Approach shots must not be short from perfect to get on the green in regulation and have a chance to make a birdie on relatively slow greens. All in all, the golf course maintains its unique challenges even to the very best golfers to score well for it demands a variety of shots mostly with the short and medium irons. And for those who love the game this is one short golf course that will test your golfing skill to the fullest.
