Nestled in what used to be a mango orchard in historic Cavite, 27 kilometers Southwest of Manila, are two world-class,18-hole championship courses designed by two golf legends: Arnold Palmer and Gary Player.
The Palmer Course was the venue for the 1995 Johnnie Walker Classic and the 1996 Johnnie Walker Super Tour, participated in by the likes of Ernie Els, Vijay Singh, Freddie Couples, Greg Norman, Nick Faldo, and many others from the PGA.
The Player Course was the venue of the 1997 Tour Qualifying School of the Asian PGA.
The Orchard has such amenities as: a half-sized Olympic pool, 12-lane bowling alley, 150-seater cinema, fitness and aerobics center, indoor tennis courts, badminton courts, a basketball court, 5 theme restaurants, corporate function rooms and a 500-seater Grand Ballroom.
The Orchard has been designated as a bird and wildlife sanctuary with its teeming foliage and various species of birds. And yet this scenic and serene enclave is a mere 45 minutes from the bustling city of Makati and 15 minutes away from the Alabang Town Center.
