From side-eye-inducing jokes to driving us to places, Dads know how to give us the best time in unique ways. They may not be the most expressive bunch most of the time, but they know how to make us feel loved! Do you have any plans for the weekend yet? Give dad the gift of time by treating him to these fun experiences this upcoming Father’s Day:

While there are several driving ranges around the metro, you might want to take Dad to a location outside the city because we all need that ~fresh air~. If he’s been interested in golf, go for a short drive to Laguna and spend a day at this newly-opened range. There are good restaurants around Nuvali, too, so you don’t have to go too far when you get hungry throughout the day. 

Rates: PHP300 an hour in the morning and PHP400 an hour in the afternoon. 

Operating hours: Open daily from 6 AM to 10 PM
