Golf is one of the most beloved sports of people who want to stay contemplative, cool and not perspire while playing a game. It is perhaps the only sport where players may stroll easily around a field of grass and greenery even while indulging in competition.

Imagine this: a lush and creatively designed golf course on a mountaintop 2,000 ft. above sea level with a view of the entire island of Mindoro and the turquoise South China Sea.

The allure persists for non-golfers, since the Ponderosa Golf and Country Club offers a spectacular view in a relaxing environment.
