I'm not sure if this course is still named the Garra de Leon Golf Course since Starwood obtained the property as it's now part of the Westin Golf Resort & Spa, Playa Conchal. However, no matter what it's currently called, it is a beautiful Robert Trent Jones II designed golf course. Anyone who enjoys golf will enjoy this course...not too... More

great test of golf, was in excellent condition when I played it. not the cheapest but then again its not somewhere you would be playing everyday. I hired clubs from the pro shop and they were better than my own. the only golf course I have played where the spiders are bigger than the golf ball, quite a lot bigger!!!

Great course but overpriced. Also the refreshment cart was slow to arrive. They should provide free drinking water.

My Dad, husband and son played while we were there. The grounds were gorgeous and the boys had a blast! We took the wildlife tour, and it is a must even if you played the course. We saw amazing creatures on property! Sergio was a fantastic tour guide!

I played here twice on my recent trip to the Westin. It was beautifully maintained. Only saw a couple of other groups out on the course. Fun target golf that isn't impossible.

You could see the golf course from our room. Though we do not play golf it was a beautiful addition to the gourgeous setting of this restort. It was interesting to see a few players out on the course. It seemed that those that did use it enjoyed it.

Beautiful view. Great golf. Excellent service! Highly recommend it. The service was excellent. They ran a special in the afternoon, if you played after 4, the price dropped to 60 dollars. I could have played everyday. I brought my own clubs, but you can rent their clubs for about $30.
