La Iguana Golf Course
La Iguana Golf Course sits alongside a rainforest and offers you a view of the ocean while play 18 holes of testing par-72 golf on a Ted Robinson layout that also serves as a habitat for monkeys and macaws.
Robinson designed the 6,700-yard La Iguana Golf Course to blend into its neighboring jungle, with indigenous flora such as orchids and banana trees, not to mention the fauna, including 150 bird species. Take along extra balls: One golfer apparently had his stolen right off the green on the fourth hole.
As part of the Los Suenos Marriott Ocean and Golf Resort, the La Iguana Golf Course is included in stay-and-lay packages.

We had been looking forward to playing this course for sometime now.
As you drive into the Marriott property all signs point towards a good experience. Now, because Golf is Life, every course always starts off with a 10 in my mind. So this was no different.
The course itself has a very challenging layout with a 146 slope from the tips! That’s the good part. The bad is that we are in prime season and the greens were terrible, some with major sand on them for repair, the ground all of the course was like concrete, hard and dry makes for feeling like your playing a pasture course back in BC for $10 were sleeves are optional.
The whole course had leaves and debris all over, it doesn’t take much for a leaf blower to come by and make it look much better. The fact that labor is cheap here and the course is not in great shape was very heartbreaking for us.
Little things like cart person only came twice all round and had a small golf cart with limited options also felt like a fly by night course not one that is touted as the nicest in thperson area and a must do.
I could go on but I’m depressed as I lay in my hotel room.
Overall, not with the high price tag. #sad
