I was at the Luisita Golf & Country Club over the weekend with a group of shutterbugs. This 18-hole golf course sits on a 70-hectare area bounded on the east by a sugar central and by a mountain chain on the west. I noticed these patio umbrellas as soon as we walked towards the clubhouse. Wouldn't it be nice to sit here undisturbed by city noise and pollution, under the canopy of ancient acacia trees?
The clubhouse is a 2-storey classic Spanish architecture with a huge patio offering an unobstructed view of the golf course. The golf course is part of Hacienda Luisita, a 6,400-hectare sugar plantation estate owned by the Cojuangco family, which includes the late former President Cory Aquino and her son, incumbent President Benigno Aquino III.
This visit was part of the local government's efforts to uplift tourism in the province of Tarlac. Unfortunately, we only stayed here for about 30 minutes to keep up with another group enroute to the national shrine.

Oh the clubhouse is gorgeous--love the white and the architecture. It would be wonderful to sit under the umbrellas.
I've never been there. In those days, these premises remain private.
What a lovely golf course. I definitely would like to sit under the umbrellas and enjoy the serene scenery.
canopies are USEFUL, rain or shine!

That is a beautiful place to spend some time. So well maintained.
I think that's a beautiful place. Not so many people had been inside Luisita Golf & Country Club or Hacienda Luisita. Good for you. :)
The aura of charm and peace gives one a wonderful feeling.
shame you couldn't linger longer
What a perfect place for any sort of celebration. I love the architecture.
Such a beautiful place.
