El Tamarindo Golf

The stunning 18-hole championship-style golf course at El Tamarindo is set amidst a 2,040-acre natural reserve, making it one of the most spectacular courses in all of the world.

The fairways are beautifully lined with scores of Mojote and Cuba palms, as well as breathtaking views of the rocky, untouched coastline that meets the crystal blue Pacific.

Architects Robert Trent Jones Jr. and David Flemming were given the run of this sublime site located in a vast ecological preserve – and here they created a masterpiece!

There is not one flawed hole on this 6,682-yard, par-72 course, and no less than fourteen holes could qualify for signature status. The thrills of El Tamarindo begin immediately at the 371-yard. par-tour 1st. A blind tee shot must he played to the left to avoid the encroaching jungle. The 3rd hole is a mesmerizing par-four that runs straight out to the beach, with a green flanked by side and back bunkers. “Numbers six, seven, eight and nine may be the best string of four holes in the world. Before dismissing this as an overstatement, try them,” says Golf Odyssey Magazine.

Six is a stout. 472-yard par four from an elevated tee with a slight dogleg left. On the challenging, par-five 7th, a double dogleg, one can cut off some of the first dogleg, but specimen trees prevent any shortcuts on the second. The short par-four 8th is pure magic owing to its very elevated tee, long carry over a morass of wild hushes to the fairway far, far below, and trap-protected green framed by the sparkling Pacific Ocean.

After the breathtaking majesty of the 8th, players climb up to the tee of the par-three 9th. This promontory perch looks down toward a shallow green and a rousing stretch of untamed, rocky coastline. Hit a few shorts from here… it will be a while before one comes upon a hole like this again.
