The Reserva Conchal golf course is located in Costa Rica’s northern province of Guanacaste, near the small town of Brasilito and close to major attractions like Flamingo beach, Tamarindo, and Coco beach.  This ‘championship’ 18-hole golf course at Reserva Conchal Resort was designed by the legendary Robert Trent Jones II.  On one side of the course are spectacular views of the Pacific Ocean, while the other side of the course offers views of Costa Rica’s lush tropical forest.  With Bermuda grass greens, this 7,021-yard, par-71 course, is the centerpiece of the Reserva Conchal Resort.

Characteristic features of the golf course include unique elevations from tee to green, fairway bunkers, lakes, 1.6 miles of white sand Pacific ocean beach, plus lush forests surrounding the greens.  Conchal has 63 sand traps scattered throughout the course, and many of the par-4’s are long and uphill.  The dry tropical forest surrounding the course is home to coati-mundi, monkeys, iguanas, raccoons, countless exotic birds and a wide variety of native tree species. In 2002, the Golf Course at Reserva Conchal became Costa Rica’s first to be certified by Audubon International. Today, it is one of the only four golf courses in Costa Rica and 981 in the world to have that distinction.

We visited Costa Rica this year and part of the trip was a three day “All Inclusive” stay at Reserva Conchal. Wow! What a beautiful setting. I managed to get in two rounds, but had eaten so much of their wonderful “all you can eat” food, I could barely walk, let alone swing a golf club. The course is beautiful and even though I was so bloated, I managed to score well. Definitely the highlight of our trip.
