Haciendas de Naga opened another sports-tourist attraction in this city with the soft-launching of its driving range last Saturday, May 26, 2012.
The driving range is part of the 9-hole tropical golf course whose full development is ongoing. It is a good place where golf enthusiasts can practice swings and strokes.
Naga City Mayor John Bongat graced the event. The mayor himself tried golfing, along with Enjoy Realty President Emeterio “Boy” Aman and other golf enthusiasts. Engr. Fernando Villamil, golf superintendent of Haciendas de Naga Sports Club, Inc., gave a basic training on playing golf to the guests.

The sport itself
It was the British who introduced golf to the Filipinos. This might be one of the reasons why there is a notion that golf is for rich people. But golf is not only for the rich.
“It is not expensive to play golf. Our rates in Haciendas de Naga are lower. For only P50, you can already have 40 golf balls. You can play anytime,” says Imelda Botor, adiministrator of Haciendas de Naga.
Haciendas de Naga is offering a 2-hour cliniquing for those who want to learn how to play golf. The training includes the 7 essential aspects in golf: lower body section, mid body section, upper body section, gripping the golf club, swinging, principles of hitting the golf ball and rules of golf. Cliniquing is conducted by Engr. Villamil every weekend.
The four holes in the golf course have so far been completed. The entire 9-hole golf course is set to be finished before the year ends.
