Costa Rica is an ideal location to play golf. It enjoys warm temperate weather year round. It has nearly constant wind, the hazard of choice for Scottish golf links. It is also not known as a golf destination, which means you will likely encounter empty fairways and pristine conditions. Located just 20 minutes from Tamarindo is the Mike Young designed Hacienda Pinilla golf course. At first glance, this beautifully designed course appears to be a wide-open design. However as your round unfolds, you quickly learn of the course’s defenses. During the dry season, the course plays firm and fast like a links course. Club selection can be tricky as the clever routing forces down, cross and side wind shots – sometimes in the space of a few holes. During the green season, the courses length exerts itself. The lush fairways and deep sand bunkers make the course play every inch of its 7200 yards. In any season, the staff at Hacienda Pinilla are warm and welcoming.
