Timberland Sports and Nature Club in San Mateo, Rizal

We went to Timberland Sports and Nature Club a few days after Christmas last year. One of our friends is a member and he invited several of us to come along with our kids in tow.

Timberland Sports and Nature ClubI was surprised at what a short drive it took to get there. It's approximately about 20 minutes by car from Batasang Pambansa along Commonwealth Avenue.

Timberland Sports and Nature ClubChristmas decors were still up since it was still December 2010 even if Christmas day had already passed.

Timberland Sports and Nature ClubI marvel at how we found ourselves in a mountainous area with a good view at less than an hour's drive.

Timberland Sports and Nature ClubTimberland Sports and Nature Club is basically a country club, kind of like Tagaytay Highlands but not as far. Our friend toured us around the premises. The room above is actually the library. It's air-conditioned and it has computers you can use plus a free wi-fi connection.

Timberland Sports and Nature ClubThere are badminton courts, a rock-climbing facility (pictured above), playgrounds, and even a day-care center.

Timberland Sports and Nature ClubOf course, the main highlight is the swimming pool. There are three in all -- an adult pool (pictured above) plus two kiddie pools. Since the place is new, it's not crowded at all.

Timberland Sports and Nature Club This is the first kiddie pool, it's located above the second kiddie pool. My 6-year old daughter can easily walk around the pool because it's pretty shallow.

Timberland Sports and Nature ClubThe second kiddie pool comes with a water slide. It's a bit deeper compared to the first pool but still shallow. My 9-year old son can easily walk around the pool's entire length.

Timberland Sports and Nature ClubThere's also a poolside cafe where you can order food and beverages. I had some freshly brewed coffee. Amazingly, it's only P38 per cup and even comes with a yummy raisin biscotti.

Timberland Sports and Nature ClubHubby ordered The Timberland 6 oz. Burger w/ your choice of Cheddar or Swiss cheese (P198, pictured above). He chose Swiss cheese. It's a pretty big burger and he said the all-beef patty is surprisingly juicy and delicious. It comes with a generous helping of crispy potato wedges and some fresh fruits too.

Locker rooms are very clean. There are separate shower and dressing areas.

Timberland Sports and Nature ClubTimberland Sports and Nature Club comes with a full-service restaurant too. After shooting pool, we proceeded to have dinner. I ordered Texan Pork Riblets (P268, pictured above). It was pretty average fare, not as fall-off-the-bone tender as the menu describes but not bad either.
