About us

Forest Hills Golf and Country Club is a world-class golf and leisure facility nestled in the rolling foothills the Sierra Madre Mountain Range, an easy drive from Manila through Marcos Highway all the way up to Barangay Inarawan.

Designed by golf legends Jack Nicklaus and Arnold Palmer, Forest Hills features a 36-Hole championship golf course, a multi-level clubhouse, the famous Aqua Park and a breathtaking panoramic view of the Ortigas skyline.

Forest Hills' unique location gave the architect, Ruben Payumo, an opportunity to create an iconic design for the site. The terrain, the rolling hills and the magnificent vistas offered by Forest Hills' location motivated the architect to depart from the usual box-type building design. Thus the concept of three interlocking circular masses with a conical roof emerged.
