Located a few miles past Coronado yet before the town of San Carlos, is the Vista Mar Golf and Beach Resort and its excellent golf facility by golf architect J. Michael Poellot. An exciting new development is the recent opening of the second nine holes to finish this into a full 18-hole, par 72, fun and demanding test of golf with the best sea and mountain views in Panama.
In addition to the new 9 holes, there’s a new club house, driving range and practice putting green. Previous players at Vista Mar might be a bit confused about the new layout because there isn’t a new and old nine – there’s a new routing where old and new holes have been combined. Experienced golfers will also recognize the definite flavor of links-style golf on the new holes.
A positive development at Vista Mar is the hiring of Kemper Sports to administer the golf facility. Savvy golfers recognize immediately the huge benefits in the golf experience when professional golf course personnel from companies like Kemper Sports and Troon Golf run and maintain a golf facility.
