GOLFING IN COSTA RICA
When you hear of friends’ and family members’ trips to Costa Rica, you don’t often hear of their time spent on the back nine, but its hidden-gem courses make it one of the great golfing destinations of the world. The courses here are simply incomparable. The climate lends itself well to a naturally occurring and lushly verdant aesthetic which most other regions have to manufacture, taking a toll on the environment. Costa Rica incorporates its surroundings in the design and placement of courses, ensuring conservation of both its resources as well as its unmatched beauty.
The fairways of Costa Rica are nestled among topography and environments that will inspire awe and give pause to even the most traveled players. Scenery varies from dark green mountainsides specked with rolling fog to sun-filled sandy beaches to mysterious and thick dry forests. Be on the lookout for exotic animals as well; curious monkeys have been known to playfully snag a ball or two from greens that are close enough to the tree-line.
The courses can also be as challenging as they are striking. Expert developers from all over the world have designed courses for all skill levels in Costa Rica. You can even drive a ball down a fairway imagined by none other than the great Arnold Palmer. With hundreds of country clubs, golf resorts, and public courses, Costa Rica shoots well below par for novices and professionals.
