Golfing in Costa Rica
Costa Rica is fast becoming one of the most popular places on the planet to vacation, and for good reason. It never snows and anytime is always a good time to go to the beach. Pristine, picturesque natural rainforests and parks cover a large portion of the country, part of why Costa Rica is leading the growing trend of ecotourism. And of course, all that fresh air and green grass lend themselves to making the area especially perfect for one other popular activity: golfing in Costa Rica. There are five major Costa Rican golf courses to chose from, whether you’re moving to Costa Rica or just thinking about living in Costa Rica for a week or two.
Have you ever golfed amongst monkeys? Now’s your chance! The Garra de Leon golf course was built right alongside a natural rainforest, and it’s a common occurrence to have native wild animals cheer you on as you play. Truly stunning from beginning to end, Garra de Leon provides a unique golf adventure that both the beginner and the advanced golfer will love golfing in Costa Rica again and again.
The Hacienda Pinilla offers a luxurious rolling golf course with the waves of the Pacific Ocean practically crashing right at your feet. Along the way, you’re sure to spot at least one or two rare native species of bird or monkey. The Hacienda Pinilla is unique in that it incorporates the natural surroundings right into the course as nature-built obstacles, making for a rewarding yet challenging game for players at all levels.
Villa del Sol, or Sun Valley, serve double-duty: it is both a natural wildlife habitat and one of the most enjoyable golf courses in Central America. The only downside to the course is that it’s easy to find yourself staring at the towering mountains, sparkling lakes, and rolling lawns instead of focusing on your shot!
Situated right on the Pacific Ocean and in the midst of some of Costa Rica’s most breath-taking rainforests is the Los Suenos Beach and Golf Resort. While your travel companions are lounging on the beach or relaxing back at the resort, you can enjoy many full days of golf on this Par 72 course. Once you’ve had your fill of golfing for the day, you can enjoy the on-site casino, restaurants, pools, and tennis courts.
If you’re thinking of moving to Costa Rica, you can join the exclusive Melia Cariari Golf Club, giving you access to the oldest and most prestigious 18-hole golf course in all of Central America. To maintain its beauty and make their golfing experience a truly memorable on, Melia Cariari is closed to non-members, so tourists cannot play. However, many who have enjoyed its lush, challenging course have said that the Melia Cariari alone would be enough to get them to keep living in Costa Rica year-round!
Whether you’re currently living in Costa Rica or haven’t even though of moving to Costa Rica, Costa Rican golf courses are there to provide endless hours of unforgettable putting pleasure. With your options for golfing in Costa Rica spanning five distinct, expertly-designed courses—the Garra de Leon, Hacienda Pinilla, Valle del Sol, Los Suenos, and Melia Cariari—you may soon find yourself living in Costa Rica whether you planned to or not!
