Golf vacation to Cebu

I am from Portland , Oregon USA and am wanting to take a vacation to Cebu to primarily play golf and relax and meet some new people....would be traveling alone and be there for about a month.....I want to bring my golf clubs, but would it be too much of a bother or too difficult to be lugging them around.....? also, would like to find the least expensive place to stay that is decent (don't need anything but a place to sleep and a decent shower / bathroom )...near Alta Vista Golf and Country Club and / or Cebu Country club.....I am single and would love to possibly meet a girl over there, but not mandatory or anything......no prostitutes though....also going there to check out the possibility of maybe even living there at some point.....I am 45 years old and healthy and a semi-professional golfer.....not a seasoned traveler going abroad.......thank you for any advice or info....Michael

Holiday spa hotel can be walking distance to cebu country club.

Alta vista will require a vehicle as the golf course is at the side of a hill/mountain.

There may be some hotel/pensionne house accommodation in Pardo but I am not aware of it.

So, if you are going to have to travel their by car anyway, you could stay anywhere in Cebu City

Here is my list of budget accommodation for Cebu City

Metro Park has rooms as low as P800 and it has a swimming pool.

Thank you for your advice Papalo.....I am going to try to get to Cebu during the winter months.......I work at a Private Country Club here in Portland and Nov.-Dec.-Jan. are obviously the slow months for golf here. One question if you don't mind........would it be too much of problem to bring golf clubs to Cebu...? My main concern would be transporting them in the taxis that look small from the airport to the hotel near the golf courses etc..... thank you

Thank you Big Jim for the list of places to stay......I was going to come out there a few months ago, but then the Philippines had the terrible earthquake.....and right after that the horrible typhoon....if things work out right I will be able to get out to Cebu during the winter months......

You're welcome!

Are you aware that the Philippines has earthquakes, more or less, every day. You can get the latest earthquakes here

…dost.gov.ph/html/update_SOEPD/EQLatest.html

Plus, there are usually more than 20 typhoons a season. And, you can get typhoons in November, December and January.

I am sure that golfclubs will fit in the boot of Cebu City taxis.

Regardless, when I have large luggage, I throw it on the back seat and get in the front. You can do the same with your golf clubs

7. Re: Golf vacation to Cebu

Any taxi can handle golf bags. There are four golf courses in Cebu island, just in case you are considering not just Cebu Country Club and Alta Vista and what Papalo mentioned, Club Filipino Danao. The 4th one is the one in Mactan airbase, near the airport. If you plan to take a cab to any of these, then the list provided by BigJim can be your starting point. If you plan to walk, the one I suggested near Cebu Country Club is an option. Traffic is terrible around Cebu Country Club and is now a no left turn road from 7-9am and 3-7pm.

....no problem, golf bags can fit in taxi's trunks and also in the front seat. I'm probably just like you, Its worthy bringing my own personally fitted golf clubs wherever I go. It makes playing the game more enjoyable.

....there is another country club located near or about in Bogo, Cebu. This, according to a friend of mine who is transplanted there. I have not checked it out yet. Maybe in my next visit in Cebu this coming October. Drop me a message; we might just be there at the same time.

....heads up! Caddies in Alta Vista GC are women. Mactan International GC, Club Filipino Danao - men. Make certain you ask for Class A caddies. Umbrella girls are just that - girls. Recommended plus sunscreens due to extreme Sun rays.

....Enjoy your game, and don't forget to avail the 19th hole activities...cold SML, massage, etc...;-)

....oh, another thing...bring your own ProV or ProVx. The ones they sell at the pro shop are mostly fakes from China. Balls are not allowed in hand-carry. Pack in check in golf bag.

...enjoy!

10. Re: Golf vacation to Cebu

Thank you Papalo for the info....yes I just simply want to play golf and maybe get into a money game at one of the clubs....or maybe play golf with you if we are both there at the same time....just want to possibly meet some of the locals and make some new friends etc......I want to be there for about a month so I can have time to get used to what's going on......I know it gets really hot over there.....but all I need is a clean safe place to sleep and a nice shower, coffee in the morning and a few beers in the evening.....thanks again for the advice....it is priceless....the more I can find out about this trip to Cebu the better : ) Mikey
