Most 9-hole, Par 3 courses are usually not really worth the effort for serious golfers but Ponderosa is the exception to the rule. There may be no long drives down tree-lined fairways but Ponderosa offers a serious challenge to any golfer’s short game with verdant jungle pushing in on all sides and sweeping panoramas over the beaches and bays of Puerto Galera. Ponderosa’s nine holes are strategically spread over 22 hectares of steep mountainside and in some places the fairways literally plunge from tee to green, that is why you have to walk the course. The course is laid out in the standard three tee positions – red markers for the Ladies tees, white makers for visitors and blue for members. There is also a second tee position for each hole should players like to play a full 18 holes.Bring more balls that you think you may need.
