The Golf Course at Hacienda Pinilla offers one of the finest settings for links enjoyment in a country renowned for its golf tradition. Created by respected architect Mike Young, the layout conforms gracefully to the natural flow of the land, weaving through the tropical forest along the shores of the Pacific to provide an unparalleled blue water backdrop. This par 72 course, which can play up to 7,200 yards, was designed to enhance the natural landscape of Hacienda Pinilla, giving golfers an exceptional and immaculately conditioned place to enjoy a round with family and friends.
Reflecting respect for its natural setting, the Golf Course at Hacienda Pinilla has earned designation as an Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary for its preservation of ecological balance. Here you have the extraordinary opportunity to enjoy your game in the natural habitats of Costa Rica, where the surrounding beauty and glimpses of exotic wildlife create a truly special experience. As an Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary, our award-winning golf course upholds the highest standards of course design, maintenance and environmental preservation.
Whether you’re a weekend warrior or a truly passionate player, be sure to book a tee-time here and spoil yourself with an unforgettable round of golf.

Tamarindo is the most popular destination on the Guanacaste Peninsula of Costa Rica. A quaint, funky little beach town with an endless supply of activities from the extreme to the subdued is how we often describe our home.
Tamarindo is not only known for world class sport fishing but also for its beaches that scream tranquility and timelessness. Surfing has long been popular on the shore and inland activities include horseback riding, canopy and zip line tours, ATV tours, championship golf, hiking, and an endless plethora of other activities for the enthusiast and perfect for the whole family. With a dozen spas and salons close by, those seeking pampering are certainly covered. Shops featuring products from Costa Rica and around the world line the streets and are full of treasures. Tamarindo boasts a healthy nightlife with a number of bars, discos, casinos and incredible restaurants.
Though Tamarindo has seen a recent growth spurt over the past 5 years it has managed to hold on to its far-side-of-the-world appeal. We have one paved road coming in to the city and million dollar mansions just off dirt roads. We have heard Tamarindo referred to as summer camp for adults, as it still feels a little bit like the Wild West might have. You wont need your Pradas here as bathing suits and t shirts are common place.
The American Dollar is widely accepted here as well as major credit cards at most every business establishment. Here in Tamarindo and across the country ATMs are plentiful and in most banks you can find at least one person who can speak at least a little English.
The Costa Rican people are grateful for the tourism the country brings in and are very generous and helpful. Here in Tamarindo, most of the shops and restaurants have bilingual employees to help you get what it is you're looking for.
Tamarindo is located a short 45 minutes from the Liberia Intnernational Airport (LIR). If you have special requests or needs simply let us know and we will accommodate them.
