Driving Range, Fort Bonifacio Taguig

Part II of finding refuge in the city, without actually leaving the city. Part 1 can be found here

Not going to lie, I love Manila but I am so often feeling trapped in this concrete jungle I need to find ways to either get out of the city or find something completely new. When I start to get that itch and can’t get away I go to my list of places to visit and it usually reconnects with my hunger for exploration. Manila is so deep and so vast it could take decades to unearth it’s various barangays, I will happily accept the challenge.

The same day we ventured to Heroes Bike Trail our driver mentioned he knew of a driving range just up the road. I swear, drivers are the chamber of secrets. They are all knowing! It only made sense that we should also spend some time at the driving range. A five minute drive and 180 php later we were teeing off at the Philippine Army Golf Course. (I know nothing about golf so you can laugh at me right now.)

I could have just sat and enjoyed the wide open space free of high rises and cars.

There is a shop located at the entrance for you to size and rent clubs and other equipment.

It’s more fun in The Philippines where an assistant places balls for you.
