The Cariari Country Club is the perfect place to play when arriving in Costa Rica, and with proper planning, a great way to end your stay as well. This private golf club, founded in 1973, was designed and built by golf course architect George Fazio on a land that was once a coffee plantation. This par 71 course measures 6,590 yards from the Championship tees, but plays much longer.

The course is heavily wooded; the fairways are narrow with few fairway bunkers, and the greens lean toward the large side with sand traps throughout. The fairways are seeded with Bermuda 419 and the greens with Bermuda 328.
**Please note that there is mandatory use of caddie at this course.

Gold 5.838 121 69.4

The Valle del Sol Golf course was the first course open to the public in the San Jose area. With 7.011 yards, this par 72 championship style course offers ample fairways surrounded by majestic trees and large lakes which attract diverse and lively wildlife, where more than 20 different bird species can be observed. They are proud to be certified by Audubon International, the most acknowledged ecological program in the world of Golf.
Mrs. May, with the assistance of the on-site construction supervisor Mark Dinan, has designed the layout to be challenging and fair under most conditions, and downright tough when the winds come swirling down from the surrounding mountains. The layout is diverse and requires the use of all the clubs in your bag. Valle del Sol was designed with five tee boxes that allow the weekend golfer and low handicapper have a great time. If you love golf then this is your perfect vacation package to Costa Rica.
The rolling hills, mature trees that were part of the original course and the surrounding mountains create a great setting for golf.

Day 4

San Jose – Guanacaste

3-night stay in Guanacaste including 2 green fees (according to selected hotel)

Green Fees Options

Option 1:

Hacienda Pinilla Golf Course for guests staying in Hacienda Pinilla, 2 bedroom Villa or JW Marriott, Deluxe Garden View Room.
Par: 72
Yardage: 7,274
Architect: Mike Young

This 7,300-yard, par 72 masterpiece golf course is the creation of Mike Young, who is responsible for some of the finest courses in the southern United States.
At Hacienda Pinilla, you’ll see a shining example of Young’s passion for the game, respect for tradition, concern for the environment and sharp eye for detail. Each hole was designed to conform to the slopes and contours of the natural landscape. Not only has he met the highest standards required by international golf organizations in building the course, but recently the property earned certification as an Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary for its preservation of the ecological balance of the area.
The course is a coastal layout with wide, open fairways and the prevailing winds come into play on just about every hole. The bump and run are recommended for most approach shots as the greens are hard and fast. A truly distinguishing characteristic of Hacienda Pinilla is the many well-placed pot bunkers that are cleverly placed around most greens. It is challenging, and will reward conservative play more often than not.

Option 2:

Reserva Conchal Golf Club for guests staying in The Westin Resort & Spa All Inclusive Hotel, Deluxe Junior Suite
Par: 71
Yardage: 7,030
Architect: Robert Trent Jones, II

The Reserva Conchal Golf Course is part of the Westin Playa Conchal beach resort, a truly memorable golfing experience, designed in the classic tradition of the game by Robert Trent Jones II.
It was the first Audubon-certified golf course in Costa Rica. This 71-par championship course provides players with both a challenging and an extraordinary eco-golf experience. Lakes and ravines accentuate the course and put a premium on tee shots and accurate approach shots to large, manicured Bermuda-grass greens.
