The Cebu Country Club, which has the oldest golf course in Cebu, was incorporated and registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission on April 11, 1928. At the time the club was established, most of the members we’re expatriates, among them American, British and Spanish. The club’s first president was W.C.A Palmer whose term was in 1928-1929.
The club had a 9-hole course until the early 1960s when another 9 holes were added to make it 18 with a Par 71. in the 1980s, golf chairman Ramontito Garcia renovated the course and made it into Par 72. Then in the 1990s, Gary Player and associates were contracted to redesign the course.
Its Par 72 golf course is perhaps best characterized by its tight fairways, uneven lines and small greens. This offer a pair and interesting challenge to golfers of all levels.
The 18-hole golf course features a natural landscaping and winding fairways lined with trees, lakes and sand traps that have turned it into a stunning championship course. There are also two drink houses and a halfway gazebo nestled on the lush green course.
A new clubhouse was built in 1981 and its facilities include a restaurant, a bar, a ballroom and function rooms. It also boasts of modern locker rooms for men, ladies and guests. Other amenities include three tennis courts, two badminton courts, and a swimming pool. The Proshop features a wide array of signature equipment and apparel.
Although a private membership club, the Cebu Country Club is also open to guests and tourists. The club located in Banilad, is just a few minutes away from the heart of Cebu City and is a popular golf destination for both local and foreign golf enthusiasts.
