Baguio Country Club’s new museum showcases its rich history and heritage

By Adrian Flores

The Baguio Country Club prides itself with a rich history and heritage and to encapsulate and preserve the legacy it has built in more than 100 years, the golf and tourism destination hub in the North constructed a museum at the Ambassador Francisco V. del Rosario Hall.

The museum features all kinds of stuff—from memorabilia, old and current photographs, machineries and tools used by the Americans and Filipino-Igorots, scale models, awards, and even the origin of its famous Raisin Brea—these are in full display for members and guests.

“The museum is actually not just of BCC but also of the City of Baguio. There, one will see the humble beginnings from a one-room club that opened in 1905 up to the excellent institution that it is today,” said BCC general manager Anthony de Leon.

This new facility will give family members an additional activity inside the club while the daddies play the par-61 short but tricky layout, site of the annual Fil-Am Men’s Golf Invitational, adjudged by the Guiness Book of World Records as the largest amateur tournament.
