ABOUT HACIENDA IGUANA GOLF COURSE:
Hacienda Iguana Golf & Beach Resort is the pioneer in Nicaragua’s golf push. We offer a whole new and unique golfing experience all set within one of the most scenic locations on Nicaragua’s Riviera. The high-end condominium and residential development took the bold first step in constructing a challenging, well-manicured and pleasantly landscaped 9-hole course shaped to the natural contours of the coast.
The course, which opened in 2004, is one of Nicaragua’s best-kept sporting secrets, despite being affordable and fun. Designed by Niels Oldenburg, the course features some tricky holes. Such as a tough up hill green on hole 4, a large tree in the fairway that swats down your drive on hole 3, and a water trap on hole 8 that is home to Omar the caiman.
The highlight of the course is the spectacular 470-yard par-5 on the 5th hole. The blue tee box is located on the top of a steep hill more than 90 feet above the fairway. Offering a fantastic panoramic view of the fairways, trees and condos below, with the ocean in the distance.
ABOUT MUKUL GOLF RESORT:
Out of the lush rainforest and rugged ocean bluffs comes a David McLay Kidd signature oceanfront 18-hole course meeting world standards never before attempted in Nicaragua.
A challenge to players of all skill levels, Guacalito Golf Course seamlessly melds Mother Nature's contours of terrain while at the same time, preserving the delicate, breathtaking environment that makes Nicaragua's Emerald Coast special. Beautiful hardwood bridges made with fallen timber grace many holes. A special treated-water irrigation system keeps with the resort's commitment to sustainability. And the course's finishing hole, an unconventional par-3, was designed specifically to save mature trees instead of removing them.
The result is a worthy example of golf at its absolute finest.
