Course Reviews

Course Name Camp John Hay Golf Course
Location Baguio City, Philippines
Comments from W. Wilson Shamekday, San Francisco, California, USA
Situated at 5000 ft. in a former US Air Force R and R base. Beautiful manicured fairways and large, lush, lightning fast greens. The numerous pine trees and hilly terrain will test your shot-making ability. Disappointing 6th hole though. Carts are available. About USD 50 for green fees and USD 10 for caddy. The cool temperature and incredible scenery is reason enough to play this course.

I have played 32 courses in the Philippines and my favorite -- and believe me picking a favorite course in golf-mad Philippines is a hard choice -- is Camp John Hay. A magnificent setting recently renovated by Jack Nicklaus's company. Over 5,000 ft in altitude, CJH is very, very, diferent from the other fine courses in the Philippines. It is the only course with Bentgrass greens...and the greens are swift and tricky. The course itself is quite friendly. But don't be macho. The fairways can be quite narrow and the abundent trees and sloping fairways will make you pay for foolishness. I absolutely love this course. The course is rejuvinating hole number six, the green of which suffered from the lack of light. CJH has just opened an absolutely beautiful club house, making it -- when hole number six gets back on line -- what I consider the perfect recreational golf experience.

This is no longer is public course, no matter what the various web sites say. You'd better have a sponsor arranged, or you'll be refused access to this beautiful course.
