Costa Rica is one of few places in the world that offers both these things as well as unknown and untouched land. The courses in Costa Rica are relatively new and thus, undiscovered.

Recommended Golf Courses in Costa Rica

Hacienda Panilla Golf Resort
Hacienda Panilla Golf Resort located on the Pacific coast just outside of Playa Tamarindo in the province of Guanacaste is Costa Rica’s finest course. The resort is a 7,500 yard par 72 golf course that was designed by architect Mike Young. During the high season green fees are US$125.

Costa Rican Country Club
In the capital city San Jose there are a variety of courses to choose from. The Costa Rican Country Club located in Escazu has many amenities aside from golf. However, the course here is only 9 holes.

Located near the international airport in San Jose is a Championship golf course with 18 holes for an affordable fee of only US$40. However, this course tends to get a bit crowded due to its easy access so you may want to choose your play dates accordingly.
