Hidden from the public eye

Overlooking the Intramuros Golf CourseIt would seem that way for this golf course inside Intramuros. Bounded by the trees and the old walls, you would not notice it unless you would climbed up on the other side of the wall. For a country that has a lot of its citizens living below the poverty line and where golf is usually played by the moneyed people, we have a lot of golf courses. I got nothing against people playing golf, I am just curious about the ratio.

In the past these golf courses attracted foreign tourists like Japanese nationals who when asked why they prefer to travel all the way to the Philippines just to play golf provided a simple answer – cheaper. I wonder if it is still the same today? Or had they found other countries to play golf?
