This 9-hole golf course, designed by Charles Lawrence Donavan, at the Costa Rica Country club, was created in 1940, and was Costa Rica’s very first golf course. It was nearly 30 years later before another golf course eventually appeared in Costa Rica. With tree-lined fairways and small greens, this course can play difficult for those who do not hit very straight off the tee box. The greens are ‘419’ Bermuda grass, and the fairways are ‘327’ Bermuda grass. There is a driving range, practice green, and private lessons available for its members as well.
The Costa Rica Country Club is strictly private and accessible only to members and guests of members. It’s facilities include an Olympic sized swimming pool and the Costa Rica’s finest tennis facilities and hosts the annual “Costa Rican Open” Tennis Tournament, which many top rated tennis players around the world have participated in, and is the most important tennis tournament in Central America.
