Designed by Arnold Palmer, this 18-hole, par-72 championship golf course 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 jeweled 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 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. The Golf Club on 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 golf course offers also a driving range, a sand-bunker practice area and putting and chipping greens. Professional private instruction is available seven days a week. The pro shop is open daily from 6:30 am to 6:00 pm, carries an assortment of high-end men's and women's golf and tennis apparel, hats and gear.
