With the worldwide popularity of golf, it is no wonder then that Costa Rica has a number of golf courses and resorts across the country to satisfy even the most avid golfer. While a lot of large scale Costa Rica golf resorts being currently developed, the province of Guanacaste is home to the largest number of golf courses in the country. Not only are these courses set amidst some of the most beautiful scenic backdrops, but they are truly world class.
Visit the Hacienda Pinilla golf resort, one of the finest golf courses in Central America. A 7,500 yard par 72 golf course designed by renowned architect Mike Young, this resort is located just outside of Tamarindo near the tiny village of San Jose de Pinilla. Green fees during the high season are about US$ 125 per person, with golf carts available for rent at US$ 20 a day. For teeing off times, rates and direction get in touch with the resort directly.
If you are based in the capital city of San Jose, there are a number of choice golf resorts to choose from. Golf at the Costa Rica Country Club in Escazu, a 9-hole golf course with tennis courts and a swimming pool or try your luck at the Valle del Sol in Santa Ana, which has recently opened an 18-hole par 72 course. The green fee here is an affordable US$ 7 per person.
For those who can afford it, visit the fantastic Cariari Country Club on the road between Western San Jose and the Juan Santamaria International Airport. An 18-hole championship golf course, playing a game here is quite expensive at US$ 40 per person. Also do keep in mind that since the courses in San Jose are more easily accessible, they also tend to be a bit more crowded.
