Camp Philips, Bukidnon

Whenever one talks about Bukidnon, the very first thing that comes to mind is ... PINEAPPLE! Yeah, I call it the land of pineapples. Del Monte is heavily involved in pineapple production here. Camp Philips is a huge area just before Bukidnon that has a well known golf course, plus a restricted area that houses Del Monte's top people. You can go a bit around the golf course (provided that are no tournaments happening) or dine in their country club, famous for its hamburgers. Man, I forgot when the last time I ate one. When we went there, we ordered all beef since it was lunchtime. Clubhouse sandwiches, for us, felt, are only good for breakfast and/or snacks but they are what makes the country club famous. The steaks were alright, but not so with the portedhouse steak. That was pretty much expensive and it had a lot of fats so that order was a ripoff. The T-Bone steak and roasted beef were alright.

For the restricted area that houses Del Monte's top people, you would have to know someone who lives there, else you cannot go inside the premise. The area is beautiful. Nice landscape, scenic views, clean and peaceful environment, the perfect place to for a getaway. The pineapple plantation is nearby. You can go there and look around, although there is really nothing to look at since they are just huge fields filled with pineapples. For landmark locations, you can also have your photos taken in front of their big pineapple statue.
