Set in the heart of Bacolod City in Negros Island is the championship golf course, the Negros Occidental Golf and Country Club established in August 1982.
This par 70 course is reminiscent of camaraderie between top golf enthusiasts and legendary Philippine golfers. Formerly known as the Marapara Golf & Country Club named after the crown jewel of Negros Occidental, the magnificent Marapara Peak which backdrops the scene presents a picturesque view for the recreational golfer.
The course plays 6,197 yards of seemingly flat fairways and strategically placed water hazards was designed by the most highly esteemed of Filipino amateur golfers, Negrense Golf legend, Luis “Golem” Silverio. In 1962, Golem Silverio’s genius was realized. The sugarcane fields were transformed into a presentation of nature and man-made brilliance. The narrow and winding fairways are lined with a wide array of pine, eucalyptus trees and Philippine mahogany.
This marvellous scenery poses a balance of challenges, ordeals calibrated by the unpredictable greens and the ever blowing winds. It is truly the dream course of every ambitious golfer out on a quest for an exciting, nerve-wracking and pleasurable round of golf.
