(A cool February afternoon at Camp John Hay, Baguio City, Philippines.)
Camp John Hay was a former military base of the United States Armed Forces. Established in 1900, it was mainly for R&R as the high altitude (4,600 feet above sea level) provided a respite from the relative heat of the lowlands.
During World War II, it was used by the Japanese Imperial Army as headquarters and as a concentration camp for American and British soldiers. When the Japanese capitulated, General Yamashita surrendered to the Allied forces at Camp John Hay.
It is now a tourist attraction with hotels and parks and shops. The golf course dates back to 1905, but was redesigned by Jack Nicklaus in 1999. It is a relatively short course but the narrow fairways and mountainous terrain make it a challenge.
A historic and charming place to visit in the cool month of February.
