Playa Mujeres 18th hole

The vibrant clubhouse overlooking the 18th green

Playa Mujeres Golf Club is widely acknowledged as one of the top golf courses in Mexico.

This outstanding 18-hole golf course, with several sea-view holes and greens that compete with the world’s best, was designed by Greg Norman and opened in 2006

Playa Mujeres Golf Club offers several lagoons to negotiate and a couple of holes that are played towards the stunning white sandy beaches and turquoise waters of the Mexican Caribbean.

Designed with respect for its abundant tropical surroundings, this golf course near Cancun delivers a breath taking golfing experience. With its spectacular seafront setting and landscaped gardens incorporating exotic plants and palms, it’s easy to forget some of the features that make this golf course a real challenge.

Caribbean Sean Views

The par 3’s  epitomize Greg Normans creativity along with the 15th hole, home to a table-top green and deep bunker.

The 16th tee reveals the Caribbean Sea, a real distraction on a thorny short par 4 that plays much tougher when the wind kicks up. The daunting par 4 finishing hole skirts water before ending at the vibrant clubhouse.

This course has a great layout with fairways that are as lush as any I’ve seen. If you do suffer a hook or a slice and end up in the rough you will find it tough to get out as it’s quite spongy.

Many of the greens slope back to front and I had a few shots roll down and off rather than hop up and on.

On the 9th hole I bumped into one of the resident crocodiles basking in the sun, luckily I was down the middle, he didn’t seem too impressed with my shot, but I was happy to walk away with a bogey.

I really enjoyed playing this course and would recommend it to anyone thinking of playing golf while here on vacation.

Tip: If you need to buy balls, I would recommend waiting until you’re on the course or driving range; one of the ground staff will likely offer you “retrieved” balls. I picked up 20 Pro V 1’s for $10. Bargain!
