Played Allamanda on Sunday the 7th of March with the Pinoy Golf Association.

Course was burned out; no grass, hard as concrete.

Hit ANY drive down the middle and you're guaranteed about 150 yard roll minimum.

Hardley any grass near the greens and what was there was near death.
Ground is terriblly dry and the grass has been lost.
Big patches of sand in the fairway.
Even the bunkers had only about 1 inch of fluffy sand then asphalt right underneath.

They are not watering any parts of the course other than the greens.
Which by the way were in Outstanding condition and nicely rolled for some true putting experiences.

If you plan on playing there I'd highly recommend calling the course first and asking what condition
the course is in or whether or not there's been any significant rain.

Typical course management (or lack thereof) had the course crew telling us not to drive on the fairways till after 9 am.
What a joke! Maybe they didn't want us driving on the course till then so the paint stripes could dry on what
has beocme a giant parking lot called Palm Resort!

Waste of time and money for sure and it used to be such a nice course (played there about 75 times over the past 4 years).

Cheers!

That is terrible, from the sound of it. Thanks for highlighting towkay.
Perhaps , you may wish to consider play at Poresia?
Played there on sat. Still grassy on fairways and greens ok.

My driving has been bad recently.....I think the height of my trajectory is longer than my distance fm tee to ball....

Looks like a good time to get some 'unnecessary' ego boosting drive
