Rancho Palos Verdes


Rancho Palos Verdes Golf & Country Club, located in Barangay Mandug (Buhangin District) about 20km North of Diversion Road (Davao City) brings word class golf and facilities to Mindanao. Designed by world renown architect Andy Dye, Rancho Palos Verdes  is 7,039 yard romp through undulating fairways, overlooking the town of Mandug. Rancho is one of several courses designed by Andy Dye in the Philippines.

Remainders of a tropical rain forest traverses the first 3 opening holes, coupled with a crocodile lagoon, an early morning view of Mount Talamo and a wildlife sanctuary, finishing with the course’s most difficult hole, the 475 yard par 4, 9th. From the 9th green there are views of the town of Mandug and a vast banana plantation, meandering along the banks of the Davao River. On the back 9, look out for the unique Par 4 13th, with a island green, a Dye design trademark. The Par 5, 15th the course’s longest par 5 is only reachable by the longest hitters. Don’t forget the 18th hole, the 2nd most difficult hole on the course to round out your day. With over 200 feet of elevation changes, water hazards, traditional Dye pot bunkers and, various types of uphill, downhill and sidehill lies on its Bermuda grassed fairways, plus the subtle, imperceptible breaks of its Tildwarf greens makes Ranch Palos Verdes the course to play in Southern Mindanao.

There are four sets of tees ranging from 7,039 yards at the tips down to the Ladies tees at 5,089 yards. The practice facilities at Rancho are not the greatest in the world but it looks like they are working on the issues. The practice green is representative of the course conditions and is ample big enough to working on your putting with various breaks and uphill and downhills puts.¬† The driving range is something that I was a bit disappointed with. (having said that in the Philippines driving ranges in general are disappointing) The range goes out to about 260 yards at it’s farthest. They are constructing a covered hitting area. The problem really lies with the following: no targets or markers to let you know distances or have something to aim at and there are no “club managed” personnel at the range. You need to rely on local boys with their own ball cache to practice. 2 times recently they were no where to be found just after lunch. We will be taking this up with management.

The caddies at Rancho are very knowledgeable and professional. Definitely take advantage of their green reading skills.

The clubhouse facilities at Rancho Palos Verdes are 2nd to none in Davao. With male and female locker rooms equipped with showers, saunas, jacuzzis and massage rooms, you can complete your day with pampering one would expect from a top notch facility. There is a huge open air restaurant / bar overlooking the practice green and the 9th fairway/green. The food in the restaurant is very good and reasonably priced. There is a smallish pro shop that has the essentials that one would need to complete a day of golf. They rent clubs/shoes for those that don’t have or those that are traveling and don’t want to carry their own.

Local fees are reasonable when accompanied by a member. Visitor / Tourist fees are on the high side during the weekends, but better during the week. The course is pretty much empty during the week. Busy times are weekends in the morning.

If your a resident of Davao or just visiting and you want to have a great golf outing surrounded by beautiful scenery, with exceptional service than Rancho Palos Verdes is the place when in Southern Mindanao.

I am the creator, owner and lead reviewer for Davao City Golf.net. I play in Davao City and around the world year round. I split my time between family, work and golf. My handicap floats right around 3-6. I play in most local amateur events. I have caddied for local pros at professional tournaments. My family, friends and most my acquaintances play golf, when it's raining we watch golf, this is what we do :)

  1. I played this course on the 24th January 2014 with a member called litto , he is local and a property broker , I started at the 12th where I joined him with my caddie and we played round to 11 , lovely golf course and very dry even with all the rain as I played apo the day before and that was wet , nice setting , the whole place is a quiet setting and I loved it that much I bought a plot , not sure about getting a golf share as I don’t what you get for 700000 peso , reduce green fees and what else for such a large fee , don’t tell me voting rights , do you get a share in the profits paid to you …………..the course is lovely with the 13th being a nice golf hole , I hit driver 8 iron and 2 putt par , lots of nice holes and the 9th is a brute and the views here are stunning

    Hi,

    Are you a member at the club? Do you know of any members I can play with? My parents have a house in Babak, Samal and me and my wife plan to vacation in Oct 2011 for 1 month. I am planning to play as much golf while on vacation (including Mt Apo) and also planning on buying a lot at Palos Verdes in the near future.

    Salamat!
