The 48-seat funicular train system and Swiss-engineered cable cars fetch homeowners and members of two exclusive golf clubs—the Tagaytay Highlands International Golf Club and the Tagaytay Midlands Golf Club. 

Both clubs boast of 18-hole championship golf courses atop Tagaytay’s highest elevations.  Tagaytay Highlands International Golf Club operates the Swiss-engineered cable cars, while the Tagaytay Midlands Golf Club has the country’s first and only 48-seat Swiss funicular system.

Homeowners at Sycamore Heights, a premier private and exclusive Asian contemporary themed residential development of Tagaytay Highlands, are also entitled to the world-class amenities at the golf and country clubs, including breathtaking rides in the Swiss cable cars.

“Whatever your needs and inclinations are at any given time, the mountain-resort-like development is likewise a safe and secure haven. It is created to be a community that promotes kinship with nature and the environment,” says Lennie Mendoza, senior vice president of Tagaytay Highlands.

Homeowners’ safety and well-being are top of mind at Sycamore Heights, Mendoza says.

The gated community inside Tagaytay Highlands has 24-hour security and 24-hour emergency medical and fire-fighting teams. 

Mendoza says Sycamore Heights demonstrates a luxurious and elegant lifestyle tailored to one’s desire for utmost comfort and relaxation.
