Riviera Cancun golf course

Tecera Etapa de Cancun Quintana Roo. Blv. Kukulkan Km. 26.

Opened in 2008 the Riviera Cancun golf course is gaining recognition for its quality and great value.

Riviera Cancun Golf Club

The Riviera Cancun GolfLocated just 10 minutes away from the airport it is easily accessible from anywhere in Cancun. Designed by the great Jack Nicklaus and his company Nicklaus Design this course differs from his usual style in that it has a traditional lynx feel with the perfect greens being extremely undulated. Nicklaus decided that the way to combat the advancement of technology in driving distances was not to lengthen the course but Riviera Cancun Golfinstead tighten up the greens and make scoring with the flat stick the premium quality required.

With lush mangroves, views of the Caribbean Sea, winding fairways that utilise the contours of the natural bio reserve and wildlife abound you can’t help but admire the beauty here.

Riviera Cancun Golf ClubThere are lakes on most of the holes and cleverly positioned bunkers will deter many a temptation to go for the par 5 greens in two. The greens are slick with treacherous breaks.

Riviera Cancun Golf Club is owned by Mexico’s Palace resorts who also own the Moon Palace golf course in Cancun and they’ve spared no expense here, the club house is testament to that, a very modern, comfortable environment serving great food and drinks.

When I played here in January 2015 the course was immaculate, the staff were magnificent and went out of their way to ensure my day went smoothly. The beverage cart caught up with me on every 3rd hole which was great. When my round was over I was given a cold wet refreshing towel and my clubs were taken away to be cleaned and looked brand new when I got them back. This club gets a big thumbs up from me.
