MANILA, Philippines - Anvaya Cove's golf course was recently named Best New Golf Course in Asia at the Asian Golf Awards hosted by Asian Golf Monthly.

The Asian Golf Awards is widely regarded as the “Oscars” of the golf industry in the Asia Pacific.

Anvaya Cove, located in Morong, Bataan, is a development by Ayala Land Premier.

"We are very honored and proud to have placed the Philippines on the international golf map with this achievement by Anvaya Cove," said Jose Juan Jugo, head of Ayala Land Premier.

The Anvaya Cove golf course covers 82 hectares, has 18 holes, and is playable all year long.

Mountain Nine or holes 1-9, is situated on or near the peaks and ridges of the development and offers majestic vistas of the sea and the Zambales and Bataan mountain ranges. Seaside Nine, holes 10-18, is reminiscent of popular seaside courses and combines panoramic sea views with those of the forest reserves.

The course at Anvaya Cove was designed by Golfplan, the Santa Rosa, California-based golf course architecture group that is behind some of the world’s beautiful award-winning golf courses including the Royal Brunei Golf Club in Jerudong Park, Brunei; Eagle Ridge Golf Club in California; and The Club at Nine Bridges in Jeju Island, South Korea.

Ayala Land Premier said to date it has sold over 80 percent of its property or almost P9 billion worth of inventory in Anvaya Cove, including beach and golf club shares.

Anvaya Cove is a 470-hectare seaside residential community and Ayala Land Premier’s first venture into leisure real estate development.

The property is divided into distinct neighborhoods of low-rise condominiums and maisonettes, the Seabreeze Verandas and Seascape Ridge; and 400 to 1,500 square-meter lots.

Among the Anvaya Cove projects recently launched is the limited 29-lot Fairway Crest neighborhood, which overlooks the golf course and have 180-degree views of the sea. Over 80 percent of lots in Fairway Crest have been taken up since its launch. It will be completed in 2016.
