This is the first exclusive sports and lifestyle club to offer accommodations to frontliners, apart from some hotels converted for this purpose.

“The board of the Palms Country Club and its members have responded to the need of our selfless frontliners. This is to ensure that they have a place to stay that is accessible to RITM,” said Francis Gotianun, president of Palms Country Club. “The club will provide the accommodation while Filinvest has pledged to shoulder the utilities including power and water consumption charges that The Palms will incur for the duration of the front liners’ stay at the facility.”
