The town of Pamplona in Negros Oriental is located in the northwest portion of the province, 37.9 kilometers away from the provincial capital city that is Dumaguete City. The main industry being agriculture, many farming properties and plantations can be found in many regions of Pamplona.
One such property is the Pamplona Golf and Country Club which originally was a private owned plantation of coconuts, sugarcane and other agricultural produce. It was converted into an 18-hole golf course in the late 1990’s. Although this golf course is strategically located near the municipality of Tanjay, it is part of Pamplona’s jurisdiction and brings its name.
Mountain ridges provide for a panoramic view from the Pamplona Golf Course. The broad landscape is dotted with refreshing verdant greens. Because the terrain is naturally hilly, the course is a demanding and challenging feat even for seasoned golfers. The course includes small lakes and cascading streams and enhanced surroundings that make golfing there a worthwhile experience.
