Costa Rica Cariari Country Club Vacation Rentals

Costa Rica has just recently been ‘discovered’ as a fabulous golf destination. Within the Central Valley near the capital, San José, there are four courses, and there are now five courses on the Pacific coast.

Cariari Country Club

The first 18-hole course in Costa Rica, the Cariari Country Club opened in 1973. From a large Costa Rican producing coffee plantation to a beautiful and exciting golf course of international recognition, the exclusive Cariari Country Club has a Championship Golf Course that will challenge all golfing skills, as well as providing an unforgettable and most enjoyable playing experience. The Golf Course was designed by golf course architect George Fazio and built by his now famous nephew, Tom Fazio.

The views are everywhere, Mountains have a different appearance every day and the vegetation is very lush. It is a pure pleasure to be on this course. Cariari is a private but offers exclusive access to guests of the Herradura Golf Resort & Conference Center and the Costa Rica Marriott. Caddies are required on this mature track.

This heavily wooded par 71 course measures 6,590 yards from the Championship tees, but plays much longer than posted. The Cariari's fairways are often narrow but with few fairway bunkers, while its greens tend to be on the large size and well guarded by carefully placed sand traps. The Bermuda grass greens are fairly large, fast and well-bunkered. One of the best in the country.

The Costa Rican Open is played here annually and hosts a field of very talented professionals from Europe, United States and many other parts of the world.

The course record is held jointly by Raymond Floyd and Costa Ricans Álvaro Ortiz and Mario Pérez. The Cariari was the site of the Friendship Cup in 1979 & 1980. These PGA sponsored events were won by Larry Zeigler (2 under) and Raymond Floyd (9 under).

With fewer than 200 golfing members, the exclusive private Cariari Golf Course is one of the least crowded courses found throughout the country.

The Cariari Country club is probably the finest Club in all of Costa Rica. There are 3 swimming pools, including the one used for the national competition. The are 3 restaurants and bars. The club has games rooms basketball court, indoor and outdoor tennis. A very well equipped gymnasium is part of what you get at Cariari as well.
