The builder La Laguna working hand in hand with the Teran family in May of 2004, gave shape to what is now the only golf course to the east of San Jose, the Monteran Golf Course. The Club House opened in June 2007, the Driving Range in February 2008 and in May of 2008 was the opening of the cafeteria with food service.
This beautiful course was built on a coffee plantation, under the direction of the American architect Douglas Beach who gave shape to the 9 hole par 3 course and driving range inside the Condominium Monteran development. It is a semi-private course.
Different companies have held tournaments and golf events on this course, with different prizes for winners ranging from golf carts to cars.. Companies also hold business seminars and meetings as well as social gatherings in the beautifully designed club house.
The course and its outreach to the community continues to expand in Costa Rica. The Saint Gregory School is currently promoting the fact that it is the first school with a golf academy. The Monteran Golf Course wants to continue tom be innovative and be involved in the Costa Rican community.
This course is designed for the business man that wants to get a quick round in the couple of hours before work, during lunch, or after work. It can be enjoyed by anyone that wants to enjoy the Costa Rican scenery and an excellently designed Par 3 Executive Course.
