Riviera Maya Golf Club

Carretera Chetumal Benito Juarez, Km 250, Bahia Principe Residences & Golf, Akumal, Q. Roo  77760

“Riviera Maya Golf Club is a magnificent golf course that extends over an area of ​​90 hectares of jungle, cenotes and lakes.”

Riviera Maya Golf clubThe Riviera Maya Golf Club is located 62 miles south of Cancun International Airport. Designed by top architect Robert Trent Jones ll this golfing complex spans approximately 720 acres of the lush Mayan Riviera and incorporates a Championship 18 hole Par 72 course plus an executive 9 hole Par 3 golf course.
rivieramaya-golfclubThe course was carved out through part of a limestone quarry and the fairways spread out into dense jungle. Wildlife is abundant and the natural surroundings are impressive, playing at the Riviera Maya Golf Club will be remembered as a great environmental experience by any golfer.
Before your round begins you can warm up at the impressive practice area which has two driving range The Riviera Maya Golf Clubtees, a chipping area with a bunker and a great putting green.

Robert Trent Jones loves fairway bunkers, so practice your long bunker shots before coming. There are several spectacular water holes and one hole with a cenote just left of the green. The Par 3 15th is a very challenging 190 yard carry over water, The Riviera Maya Golf Clubanywhere short or right of the green is wet and anything left is in the rocks and jungle. Then you’re on to the stunning 16th, a 550 yard par 5 with water all down the left.

Riviera Maya Golf Club is a luxury golf resort, which is part of the Gran Bahia Príncipe Riviera Maya Resort; a five-star hotel complex formed by 3 Bahia Principe Sin Kaanhotels, and right next to the golf course. Within the Residential Project and just 200 meters from the Club House, you will find a five-star and Don Pablo Collection hotel, which is the Bahia Principe Sin Kaan.

I paid $120.00 to play here with a 7.30am tee time and that included the cart, but having spoken to other players in the bar it appears this course doesn’t have a one price fits all policy and it may well be worth calling or emailing ahead for prices, I would also suggest asking at your hotel as they may be able to broker you a deal. Make sure to get the all inclusive price including carts before turning up.
