Both the Mimosa Leisure Resort and the Fontana Leisure Resort Complexes offer Golf Carts for rent not only for the Avid Golfers but also for people who don't want to walk or just simply want to go around the golf courses to savor the view. These Golf carts are electric powered and you can rent them for 1000 pesos for a whole day of using it around the resort and the golf courses.
The Main Draw in Coming to the Mimosa Resort is their 36 hole Championship Golf Course and the golf course is very popular for the South Koreans, Taiwanese, Mainland Chinese, who fly chartered flights to the Diosdado Macapagal Airport just to enjoy a 4 day golf and recreation tour here. A Round of Golf here is just 2,500 pesos a game (18 holes) with extra fees for renting golf equipment (unless you bring your own) and hiring a caddy.

The Diosdado Macapagal International Airport is the alternate gateway to the Philippines besides the Ninoy Aquino International Airport in Manila. This Airport is formerly the Clark Airbase of the US Airforce until 1991 and since then reverted to Philippine Sovereignty and it the only airport in the Philippines that boasts of two parallel runways. The Airport is about 95 kilometers away from the central business district of Makati in the Metro Manila Area is at present is the main hub of International Low Cost and Budget Airlines flying to and from the Philippines. It has one terminal and there is ongoing construction of a terminal 2 to handle more international passengers.
Airlines flying to and from the Airport include Cebu Pacific, Air Asia, Dragon Air, Asiana Airlines, Jin Air, Tiger Airways, SEA Air.
address is: DMIA Airport, Clark Field, Clark Pampanga, Angeles City, Philippines
There are buses such as Philtranco outside DMIA that goes direct to Manila costing P350. This is more convenient than taking the bus from Mabalacat Bus Terminal in Dau. Of course, the bus from the terminal is cheaper costing only P125 but it's a bit of a hassle requiring 2 jeepney rides from the airport. This is only good if you have light luggage.
Air Asia serves cheap flights to Kuala Lumpur & Kota Kinabalu, Malaysia from Clark, Philippines. For an almost 4-hour flight, I was able to book cheaply for only P600/way. That is even cheaper than a domestic flight. It's a promotion of Air Asia which I took advantage of. Booking is quite easy via their website. I also book the SkyBus trip from LCCT Airport to Kuala Lumpur for RM9.
Mabalacat Bus Terminal serves buses going to Manila from Angeles City. It requires 2 jeepney rides to reach here from DMIA (airport). From the airport, you're gonna walk to the main road where jeepney passes by. Take the 1st jeep to the station near SM Clark. Then take the 2nd jeepney to the junction where the bus terminal is. Just inform the driver to drop you near the terminal. There are plenty of restaurants like Shakey's & Jollibee in the area. Beware of tricycle drivers who will take advantage of tourists. They will rip you off. Bus ride to Manila costs P125.
Getting to the Clark Special Economic Zone is easiest by car/private vehicle. From Manila, you have 2 options as to which route to take:
NLEX - SCTEX - Clark South
Take the North Luzon Expressway and exit at Sta. Ines toll plaza. Before reaching the Dau exit, stay at the right to easily make a turn to the SCTEX on-ramp. From the SCTEX toll booth, follow the signs to Clark (southbound lane) and exit at Clark South toll plaza. You will be entering Clark through the Yokohama complex. At the stop light, turn right into Roxas highway until you see the sign to the HAB Fiesta venue (your right side). There are traffic enforcers/guides, so you need not worry.
NLEX- Dau - Angeles - Clark
Take the North Luzon Expressway and exit at Dau, Mabalacat. Turn left towards Angeles City, then when you see the sign to Clark, turn right. After entering the main gate, proceed along Roxas highway, watch out for the venue of the HAB Fiesta on your right.
Either way, the car trip should take about an hour and a half from Manila.
If you are a budget traveler like me, Air Asia is a good option to look into for low cost plane fare.
They use the Clark Airport which is about 1.5 hrs away from Manila. To get to the airport you'll have to take a bus to San Fernando, Pampanga (P90/way) and then a jeep from SM Pampanga and then another ride to the Clark Airport.
