9781330227329: The Baguio Country Club, Baguio, Philippine Islands (Classic Reprint)

Excerpt from The Baguio Country Club, Baguio, Philippine Islands

The slender resources of the treasury were employed to the best possible advantage. Two tennis courts were completed; croquet grounds were laid out; tennis and croquet outfits and a few sets of golf sticks were purchased, and a start was made at clearing a course for three holes of the golf links, it being hoped that a nine-hole course would come later. Nobody, however, completed the nine-hole course, although some Igorots were employed and a rude beginning made at constructing the greens, the ground between them being burned over, but otherwise left in its primitive state.

A roughly built clubhouse of slabs, costing a few hundred pesos, was hastily thrown up. It had neither doors nor windows other than scale screens. A Filipino boy was employed to serve refreshments and to receive chits therefor. A small quantity of drinks, mostly temperance, were provided, and the club began its active life with a general opening "bee" to which everybody in Baguio was invited. Soon after the arrival of the guests the grounds were covered with parties playing tennis, golf, and croquet, and presented all the appearance of country club grounds.

As there were no golf experts in Baguio, it was very difficult to get a good course laid out, although, as has been said, three holes were made available for use the first year.
