The land on which Jack's Ridge now stand once
formed part of the headquarter of the retreating Japanese forces
towards the end of the World War II. The Americans had landed
in Davao on May 1, 1945, forcing the Japanese to beat a path
to Matina Hills where they had a commanding view of the Davao
Gulf where the American ships were anchored.
Fierce fighting soon erupted between the two
forces, and as history shown us, the Japanese lost. Today, more
than half a century later, Jack's Ridge is filled with reminders
of its historic past. Caves dug by the Japanese pockmark the
area, and once in a while people still find bullets and other
war materials in the rocky soil.
There is also talk that hidden somewhere in
the caved are gold bullions and other treasure that the Japanese
had taken from other countries and brought to Davao. Whatever
the truth is about the treasure, Jack's Ridge maintains the
feature that made it an important outpost for the retreating
Japanese forces, a commanding view of Davao City and the Gulf,
the same view within the premises is also refreshing, since
the owner has made its mission to preserve the natural beauty
of the place.
Jack's Ridge was built to offer a completely new experience
to dinners, and its not over yet, more development are under
way to make it the premier dining resort in Davao City. Indeed,
Jack's Ridge is making it's own mark in Davao City's History.
