This is a view of the golf course at Papagayo, which is about 45 minutes north of Tamarindo. The Papagayo peninsula is a master-planned community with a Four Seasons Resort and housing.
The golf course hugs both sides of the spine of the Papagayo peninsula, so it provides views in all directions, out to the ocean and to the the Gulf of Papagayo. This is a view to the ocean side of the peninsula. Tomorrow I will post a photo of the golf course and a view to the Gulf of Papagayo.
It is necessary to make reservations not merely to play golf, but even to drive onto the Papagayo peninsula. Reservations to play golf or to have lunch at the restaurant at the golf course do not entitle a person to visit the hotel, however. A separate reservation must be made even to see the Four Seasons Hotel lobby. I will post more information about Papagayo in the days and weeks ahead, including some more photos of the golf course, the hotel, and even a few aerial photos taken when our plane flew over the Gulf of Papagayo.
