About

Holes 18
Type Resort
Par 72
Length 6698 yards
Slope 145
Rating 73.4

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.

Great fun in the Jungle of Costa Rica

The La Iguana Golf course in dead center Costa Rica on the Pacific side...It's really the only game in town when visiting the Jaco and surrounding area's of Costa Rica if you are looking to play golf. This lack of competing courses in the area keeps the price rather high for what you get. The course is challenging if playing from the back tee's...But the real beauty of this course is the jungle. There are 14 holes winding through the jungle of Costa Rica and 4 that play along the bay. All the Costa Rican wildlife while you are playing is truly an experience and a must play and see at least once...The greens where a bit chewed up and slow. I did play coming out of the rainy season which could have been the reason for this. The fairways where narrow but forgiving and in great shape...You lose a ball in the jungle it is best to leave it there and take a drop...The pace of play was great and everyone couldn't be more accommodating...The resort this course is on was beautiful. Other then the greens I ready did have an great experience...Safe Travels and please pick up the birdies I left out there at La Iguana...

Disappointed

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
