My husband and I got married on December 4, 2005 at Caleruega, the picturesque church on top of the hill of Nasugbu, Batangas. This place will forever be etched in our hearts. In fact, we’ve been back several times with our sons because we wanted to share the significance of the place and the breathtaking landscape that surrounds it.
Before reaching Caleruega, you would enter that long, narrow dirt road from the national road of Nasugbu. At the corner of the national road and the long, narrow road leading to Caleruega is an imposing white facade you will never miss.
This is the now-Korean owned KC Hillcrest Hotel and Golf Club standing amidst an 18-hole golf course that lines the road going to Caleruega. The golf course offers an idyllic view of your ride and a magnificent playing field for golf enthusiasts billeted at the hotel.
Hubby, when we were still based in Manila, used to play golf with his Dad and his Korean colleagues at different golf courses. This 18-hole golf course will surely tempt him. It is called “The Masterpiece” and was developed by one of golf’s greats, Arnold Palmer. Too bad, my level never went beyond the practice range. Come to think of it, even in the practice range I was terrible:-).
KC Hillcrest Hotel and Golf Club also holds golf tournaments sponsored by various organizations. The location and the facilities make it an ideal please for gold enthusiasts to have their events or just spend the day to complete the challenge of the 18-hole golf course.
The hotel’s accommodation consists of 63 Deluxe rooms and 8 Junior Suites, all of which have their own outdoor balcony overlooking the fresh green scenery the golf course offers. There is a Presidential Suite with two bedrooms and three verandas that give you a panoramic view of the golf course.
Nasugbu, Batangas is a go-to place for wedding venues. Others prefer a separate venue for the ceremony and the reception. KC Hillcrest Hotel offers a wedding venue and function hall for this purpose. Again, the function hall overlooks the golf course so its scenery is a bonus for a picture-perfect wedding.
