Costa Rican PGA golf professional Manuel Emilio Moreno, a 2000 Costa Rican golf champion, is now in charge of the Tamarindo Diria driving range adjacent to the Tamarindo airport, two kilometers outside of town. For those who want to learn the sport or raise their level of play a bit, Moreno offers golf lessons every day. Lessons cost $30 each or $120 for five. Kids’ lessons are offered Sunday mornings at 8 for ages 5 to 12, for $6 per child. A teen clinic is offered Sundays at 9 a.m., also for $6 per person. Equipment rental is free for lessons. The Tamarindo Diria driving range is also available for unlimited practice for $10 per day. Open daily from 6 a.m. to 5 p.m., it has eight practice greens, 15 teeing areas, a chipping and pitching green, two green-side bunkers, one fairway bunker and a ninehole putting green.

Their lineup includes Monday ladies’ night, Tuesday and Saturday karaoke, Wednesday cantina night, Thursday live music and Friday two-for-one liquor and music videos.

The community is mourning the loss of Alfredo “Cartucho” Siberón, who drowned July 5 in a surfing accident at Playa Negra. Cartucho had worked as an International Surfing Association-accredited judge with the Surf Federation of Costa Rica. He had many friends and will be sorely missed.
