Cariari Country Club
Cariari Country Club

Cariari Country Club takes its moniker from the indigenous name for the land on which it sits in the modern-day Puerto Limon area, found by Spaniards more than 500 years ago. Christopher Columbus himself stayed in the region for three weeks, though the country club didn't open until 1973, meaning you could likely have a more satisfying experience at Cariari than even he did.

A round of golf at Cariari Country Club begins on a 427-yard par 4, where a tree-lined fairway, with out-of-bounds on the right, leads to a green guarded by a sandtrap on the right and an out-of-bounds spot behind. The golf course features three long par 5s: the eighth (499 yards), 12th (513 yards) and 14th (522 yards) holes. Finish up on a par-4, 355-yarder that doglegs right, rolls down a sloping fairway to a river 30 yards before the green, itself well-protected with sand traps; in other words, plot your position at the tee and maintain it all the way in.

    This is a great golf course, Not long, kind of narrow, harder than average, more entertaining than others for sure! The required caddies (get an A caddie) are required and really can help manage the course, improve your score. Lots of elevation changes, sometimes windy, never boring. Definitely worth the visit.

    Food carts can be adequate. The 19th hole is recently remodeled so is nicer than before, more expensive and curiously, the food isn't much different.

    Locker room? There is a suggestion of a nice locker room. Calls to management for improvement fall on deaf ears.
