Play Golf at Caliraya Mountain Lake Resort - ‪#‎CavEAT‬: Cavinti Eco-Adventure Tour part 10


The golf course is formerly known as “Caliraya Springs Golf & Country Club”, but now its part of Caliraya Mountain Lake Resort. It’s a popular golf course site that features a championship golf course with 7,000 yard long area and with 18 holes. The view here is spectacular, you can view the Caliraya lake anda also Mt. Banahaw.

When we arrived here, we learned that the whole hotel rooms are booked by Korean nationals, all are golfers and they are in the field playing golf for the entire day. But the best part here is that we ate our snacks and got a chance to play golf.


We spotted this 2nd reception area, for Koreans only. I think this will break the barriers of any translation problems. I’m not sure if the Korean is working here or a local agency hired him to do customer service for Koreans.


The site is also a good for mountain biking, here I saw a double seater bike. Its so cute and we’re surprised that the brand is Avant.


And here’s a side car 2 seater bike with umbrella. For lovers and couples who wants to seat side by side.


Here’s a view of the golf course. We weren’t allowed to roam around the field because there are golfers who are busy playing. We were allowed to stay and check their golf driving area.

Happy lunch to all


nomnomnomnomnomnomnomnom……….. happy lunch talaga.


Here’s our chance to try the golf drive. A local golf instructor were there to teach us on how to hit a golf ball using a driving club.

It looks so easy but its hard to hit the ball using all your energy.


My first time to golf drive..
1st shot – missed shot
2nd shot – it just flew on top of the ground

my verdict:
My arm and shoulder hurts after the drive


Here’s Jen in golf mode pose.


It’s a fun day here in Caliraya Mountain Lake Resort, but this golf course area is just a start. We will check out other activities and amenities of the resort in my next blog post.
