Tagaytay Highlands reaps benefits of successful cleanup

(The Philippine Star) - August 8, 2020 - 12:00am

TAGAYTAY  Philippines — Homeowners, members and guests in Tagaytay Highlands, a premier leisure development of the SM Group of Companies,  are now fully enjoying high-quality services in the recreational and residential complex after a successful cleanup and rehabilitation.

In March, its major roads, driveways, golf courses and other facilities were cleared following Taal Volcano’s phreatic eruption early this year.

The top management of Tagaytay Highlands oversaw the cleaning operations at the estate to ensure that all properties and facilities were operational in time for the return of homeowners, members, and their guests.

In February, Tagaytay Highlands scaled up operations at the Midlands and Greenlands, including but not limited to the restoration of power and water supplies, rehabilitation of landscapes, and repairs of roofs and major spine roads, among others.

Major facilities in the Highlands, such as The Spa and Lodge and the Tagaytay Highlands Golf Course, likewise resumed operations in February. Dining places and indoor facilities of the Sports Center were also reopened.

While cleanup efforts were ongoing at the Highlands, the animals of the estate’s Animal Farm were temporarily housed at animal shelters to ensure their safety.

In conjunction with all this, club members, property owners, and sales teams successfully carried out relief operations for Highlands workers and residents of nearby communities — with donations from SM Cares and SM Foundation Inc.

The Highlands team likewise initiated similar efforts benefiting residents of the neighboring barangays of Bunggo and Kalabuso in Calamba, Laguna and Tanauan, Batangas.

On March 1, Tagaytay Highlands held a Thanksgiving Golf Tournament at its reopened Tagaytay Midlands Golf Course. Led by Hans Sy, chairman of the executive committee of SM Prime, the tournament kicked off the formal reopening of the golf course and other Highlands amenities.
