Golf Courses in Costa Rica: Guanacaste
Golf courses in Guanacaste are characterized by their stunning ocean views and windy play. Either one of Four Seasons Costa Rica, Westin Playa Conchal or Hacienda Pinilla will test your game and show you Costa Rica's dry rainforest. The Four Seasons and Reserva Conchal are constantly named by Conde Nast and T+L in the top courses in the world.
All of these Guanacaste courses are inside exclusive resorts that in most cases limit play to their resort guests. Only Hacienda Pinilla golf course is entirely public and it is also the most affordable to play. Four Seasons is open to play but you need to book through us to get a round.
For example, Reserva Conchal resort is completely closed to the public – you need to be a Westin Playa Conchal, Conchal condo guest or a Tee Times Costa Rica client. Contact Us or call (866) 448-3182 to book Conchal or Four Seasons.
Environment and Weather
Another factor that makes golf in Guanacaste different is that is much more arid than other golf courses in Costa Rica. This makes the golf season a year long option and I believe more enjoyable.
Due to the lack of water the most used grass is passpalum - a blend that can be irrigated with ocean water and has an interesting side effect: reduces the need for bug killers. This is in line with the commitment with the environment that golf courses in Costa Rica have (all of them are Audubon certified).

New Courses Coming
Guanacaste is one of Costa Rica's main tourist zones and a magnet for investment into anything related to tourism. Golf is no exception - there are currently many resorts, golf communities and country club communities being built or in planning. All of the new golf resorts in Costa Rica being built are inland or at least not as close to the ocean as the current courses.
Some of the new golf courses in Guanacaste being built are: Liberia County Village, Guanacaste Country Club, and others in planning include Greg Norman designs, Hilton properties and a Jack Nicklaus course. Note: If you are looking to invest or buy a property in Costa Rica always ask if they have the MINAE permits, without that permit the delivery of your investment is not for years and years.
