Ocean Course at Peninsula Papagayo

Your experience begins atop one of Peninsula Papagayo’s highest plateaus, overlooking the jeweled waters. 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 meters (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.

  • Hole 2: Tiburon

  • Hole 3: Buena Vista

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.

The Congo (howler) and capuchin (white-faced) monkeys are among visitors' favorites.
