Guatemala has a lot to offer visitors and locals including some world-class golf courses.
In no particular order:
Fuego Maya Golf Course / La Reunion Golf Resort
Opened in 2008 and designed by the world-famous golf architect Pete Dye and his son Perry, this former coffee plantation is now a stunning course meandering down the slope of Fuego, a smoldering volcano.
Mayan Golf Club
Recognized as the oldest golfing society in Central America. Two of its holes are on the cliffs overlooking Lake Amatitlán, and most of the course affords volcano views.
Altavista Golf & Tennis Club
One of the more challenging courses in Guatemala, it has 74 sand traps, two water traps and 1,800 trees of varying species.
Hacienda Nueva Country Club
This 7,100-yard course is just outside Guatemala City and set on the beautiful grounds of a 16th-century Jesuit monastery.
Guatemala Country Club
This course has been around so long that Guatemala City has grown up around it. Not many elevation changes, but it has some long par threes and greens with hard-to-read breaks.
San Isidro Country Club
There are well-designed signature holes with some views overlooking downtown Guatemala City and some with volcano views.
