    As one of the most prestigious private clubs in the Philippines, I highly recommend the Manila Polo Club. The facilities are grand with many restaurants as well as casual eating in their Sports Lounge or Cogon Village. The sports extend from tennis (both covered courts and outdoor), squash, badminton, bowling, swimming, to horse-back riding.They have a decent gym as well as a library, salon for men and women and the locker rooms have massage facilities after a hard day at work or play. The Business Center seems nice although I have only used it to fax the US once while there. If you need private rooms for meetings or private dinners, this is also available for those desiring privacy. What makes this facility a pleasure is the proximity to the business hub of Makati, where most businesses are located and it’s away from the maddening congestion of traffic and people, yet minutes away from Fort Bonifacio the rising NEW business and entertaining hub and center of Manila. Note: it is humid like crazy so bring light clothes. Finally, should you visit Manila try to get out to the Tagaytay lake/volcano they have an excellent 5-star restaurant called Antonio’s which has an incredible ambiance and decadent old spanish “joie de vie” – worth the experience.

    I strongly concur with the November 24, 2011 comments of Mario Del Rosario on the Manila Polo Club (MPC) in the Philippines and offer the following feedback based on several visits over the past three years, most recently in May 2013.

    MPC is a premier club with extensive athletic facilities (e.g., swimming, tennis, squash, horse riding, badminton, fitness center, outdoor running track, bowling) on a beautiful, secluded campus in Manila.

    As the name implies, the MPC really is a working polo club with stables, polo grounds, equestrian lessons, and the “Chukker Lounge” where the horsey set imbibes but the MPC offers many other amenities and activities for adults and children. These include a barber/beautician/spa services and a massage center.

    The members and staff are friendly.

    The experience of a chicken and pork adobo with a cold San Miguel beer enjoyed on the veranda is highly recommended. The baked goods are also very popular.

    If one is travelling to Manila, the MPC is well worth a visit.

    Note: The MPC requires reciprocal members to make an approximate $100 cash deposit (in pesos), which is refunded when you leave. Bring your letter of introduction and be patient while the staff processes the paperwork. Please do not be alarmed by the presence of armed guards at the club’s perimeter; it is a very safe environment.
