SPREAD luxuriously at the foot of the Malarayat mountain range in Lipa, Batangas, Mount Malarayat Golf and Country club is undoubtedly the showpiece in the Active Group’s long line of premium development projects. Peppered with water, sand bunkering and greens that are viciously contoured, it promises to put any golfer’s mettle to the test. At 1,200 feet above sea level, it offers a generally cooler climate than the rest of the province.

Dotting the greens and fairways are the terrain’s natural rolling contour, landscaped greens, lakes and groves. On the horizon are the jagged peaks of the Mount Malarayat range – an imposing yet breathtaking topographical feature of the surrounding.

The hazards and opportunities presented by the course have been designed by Bob Moore of J. Michael Poellot Design Group. The indigenous layout, a result of careful planning and the terrain’s own demanding topography, presents the player a variety of ways to approach each and every hole… making a game at Mount Malarayat a thrilling experience.

Its ability to elicit an irresistible temptation to conquer the greens from every golfer has made Mount Malarayat’s Makulot Par 5 Hole Number 7 among "The Top 500 Best Holes in the World." The editors of Golf Magazine, the preeminent journal of the game, also noted the hole’s tricky position – a configuration that requires careful consideration and strategy.

The splendor of the Malarayat course extends beneath the awesome terrain. Preserving the playability of the whole golf course is a complex matrix of surface and subway drainage. Along with the comprehensive sanding underneath, the configuration provides an extremely efficient drainage system that ensures the best all-weather surface. This also allows the use of carts on the golf course even after a torrential downpour.

The lush expanse of this world-class championship golf course adjoins the exclusive Mount Malarayat Residential Estates – a community that combines the comfort and elegance of an upscale residential development with the six-star amenities of an exclusive highland golf club.

The Mount Malarayat country club houses a complete array of sports and health facilities such as the swimming pool complex, gym, equestrian center, and various indoor sports amenities for basketball, billiards, bowling, darts, ping-pong, tennis and squash. The country club’s main restaurant offers an extensive lineup of the most mouth-watering culinary concoctions. On the second floor, the J.P. Laurel Hall makes for an ideal venue for large social and business gatherings. The handsome ballroom provides a panoramic view of the beautiful surroundings. BluPrint Magazine has approvingly noted the club’s contemporary Filipino decor and design, with its "practical touches and excellent layout."

If maintaining a vacation or weekend home is not your style, The Suites at Mount Malarayat offers condominium living at its best. It is composed of lowrise enclaves with intelligently cut units that offer a magnificent view of the fairways and the majestic Malarayat range. It is available in fully furnished units which are ready for occupancy.

The combined attraction of a wellplanned community, topnotch accommodations, the lushness of the natural environment, and a world-class golf course make Mount Malarayat Golf and Country Club and Residential Estates a decidedly singular experience.
