Designed by Arnold Palmer, this 18-hole, par-72 championship golf course and member of the International Association of Golf Tour Operators (IAGTO) was designed with the resort golfer in mind and is ranked among the "Top 100 Courses Outside the United States" by Golf Digest.
Your experience begins atop one of Peninsula Papagayo’s highest plateaus, overlooking the jewelled waters of Bahía de Culebra. Spectacular water views await you at 14 of the 18 holes. The signature hole, number 6, El Bajo, features a dramatic 446-yard par-4 with a tee shot that plays 61 metres (200 feet) downhill to a receptive valley-shaped fairway. The green is perched out on a cliff with the ocean behind it, and your round will culminate on the scenic 18th green, with views of the Pacific Ocean and Bahía de Culebra.
Four Seasons Costa Rica Golf Club at Peninsula Papagayo is a Certified Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary. Endorsed by the United States Golf Association, this program provides information and excellence to help golf courses preserve and enhance wildlife habitat and protect national resources. The course, not only set amid crystalline waters but also deep green forests, has labelled important trees, turning the cart path into a botanical garden. Hole to hole, the course offers a chance to see and appreciate a diversity of colourful plant, tree, bird and animal species. The congo (howler) and capuchin (white-faced) monkeys are among visitors' favourites.
