About This Blog
Flight chronicles of the backpacker Tutubi, with travelogues, pictures/photos/videos, travel guides, independent and honest reviews, affordable, recommended resorts and hotels (including inns, guesthouses, pension houses, lodges, hostels, condotels, bed and breakfast and other cheap accommodations), commuting guides, routes (sometimes street maps and GPS coordinates/waypoints) and driving directions to answer "how to get there" questions, information and tips on tourism, budget travel and living in Philippines, Exotic Asia and beyond!

Backpacking, independent travel, and flashpacking are cheaper than the "cheapest package tours" and promotional offers around but you can also use travel information for family vacations, even romantic honeymoon destinations.

More than the usual tourist spots and "places to see," this blog advocates heritage conservation, environmental protection, and history awareness for Filipinos, foreigners, and ex-pats wishing to explore Paradise Philippines and Exotic Asia!

    Golf in the Philippines: Golf Courses, Driving Ranges and Country Clubs

    History of Golf in the Philippines and Golf Trivia
    Irish engineers building the Panay railroad introduced the game in the country.

    Santa Barbara Golf Course, established in 1908, in Iloilo was the first golf club in the Philippines (not the golf course around Intramuros).

    According to pop historian Ambeth Ocampo, "Wack-Wack Golf and Country Club was founded by William Shaw because his wife and 'mestizo' child were not welcome in the Manila Golf Club then in Caloocan" back in those days when Filipinos were separated from the Americans due to segregation (and you thought the Americans treated Filipinos fairly, huh?)

    Since then the Philippines became a golfing paradise and mecca!
