If golf is your passion, you’ll find there aren’t many places in the world with a year-round climate averaging between 70 to 78 degrees Fahrenheit. This means you can play golf year-round on our challenging executive 9-hole course with three par-four holes and six par three’s. Almost every hole plays over the river at least once, so if you make it through without losing a ball to the Quebrada Grande, you have joined the ranks of only a select few!
