Donggwang builds world-class tourism estate in Clark

DONGGWANG Clark Corp. (DCC), the Philippine subsidiary of the SunValley Group of South Korea, ventures into an ambitious project building a world-class tourism estate in Clark Field, Pampanga, that will change the Philippine tourism horizon and redefine the country’s leisure business.

One of the biggest multiresorts under development in Southeast Asia, the Clark SunValley Resorts and Country Club is a $400-million investment in a 304-hectare land aiming to introduce a “unique lifestyle” in an integrated tourism resort estate, providing a “unique leisure experience” in the Philippines.

Already open for business is the country club’s two championship golf courses— the 18-hole Sun and Valley Course and the 18-hole Clark Course in an average altitude of 370 meters above sea level. The 203-hectare golf courses have one of the best panoramic views of Clark, giving players the best golfing environment, while allowing them to admire the great views of nature.

And to make the estate world class, DCC will be officially signing a partnership with an international hotel brand in October this year to bring in state-of-the-art establishments inside the Clark Sun and Valley Resorts and Country Club.

Other establishments to see and expect within the estate are the Clark ODE County (a mixed-use residential and office complex), international hotel and casino complex, 500 luxury private villas, water theme park, an international school, retail operations and other leisure-related facilities.

“No longer is leisure only about resting and relaxation, it also has to do with elevating living standards to the highest possible level. And this is what Donggwang wants to achieve in the Clark SunValley Resorts and Country Club,” SunValley Group Managing Director Tug-ho Rhewy said.

The SunValley Group of South Korea is known for its state-of-the-art golf courses, hotels, water theme parks, housing and other property development-related projects. Currently, it operates Sorak SunValley Country Club, Donggwon SunValley, Iljuk SunValley and Yeoju Spa in South Korea, as well as Yabe SunValley and Higo SunValley in Japan, and has completed more than 10 residential megaprojects.

The Clark SunValley Resort has started selling memberships. It offers a one-time membership fee good for two persons, with no green fees, monthly and annual fees.
