Parque Valle del Sol

Location: Santa Ana
Par: 72
Yardage: 6,913
Designer: Tracy May

Parque Valle del Sol. The course is located fifteen minutes from San José near the town of Santa Ana, and is part of a golf course community being developed by the Brazilian company Habitasul. The property and golf course were initially developed by a North American in the late seventies. The course was never opened to the public and the owner and his friends were the only ones to play there. (Sort of a poor man's Steve Wynn with his exclusive Saddle Creek course in Las Vegas.) With this in mind, it is not difficult to understand why the "gringo" ran out of money before the project was completed and returned north a wiser but poorer individual. The development became the property of a local bank in 1989. And Habitasul purchased the development in 1992.

In 1994, Habitasul brought in golf course architect Tracy May to re-design and build a new course. The results achieved by May are an outstanding 18 hole championship golf course. May, with the assistance of the on-site construction supervisor Mark Dinan, has designed the layout to be challenging and fair under most conditions, and downright tough when the winds come swirling down from the surrounding mountains. The layout is diverse and requires the use of all the clubs in your bag. The rolling hills, mature trees that were part of the original course and the surrounding mountains create a great setting for golf.
