Wack Wack Golf and Country Club
|Tournaments hosted||Philippine Open,
The complex features two 18-hole championship courses, landscaped terrains, gardens and villas.
Wack Wack was founded by William James Shaw in 1930 – because he was disgusted that Larry Montes, a caddy who had won the 1929 Philippine Open tournament at the Manila Golf Club, of which Shaw was a member, had been asked to leave the tournament celebration, by virtue of a rule against the presence of caddies inside the Manila Golf Club.
According to legend, "wack wack" was the sound made by crows who roamed areas of golf courses. The logo of Wack Wack features two black birds.
