TPC Cancun – El Tinto Golf Course

"El Tinto Golf Course at Cancun Country Club aims to become the new standard of excellence in Latin America"

Km 388 Carretera Federal 307, C.P. 77580, Cancún, Q.Roo México

Located just minutes from Cancuns Hotel Zone and 25 minutes from Playa Del Carmen this is the first PGA TPC-branded golf complex outside the USA. This 36-hole planned facility is part of the Cancun Country Club residential development. The first 18 holes is a championship course designed by Nick Price and opened in May 2012 to much hype. The second 18 holes, a championship course designed by Tom Fazio is still under construction. The facility also includes a state of the art 125,000 square feet clubhouse with a quality food and beverage operation. In addition to the residential development, other facilities will include a boutique hotel, beach club, and high-end retail centre.

“Through a close relationship to the PGA Tour, El Tinto Golf Course plays host to several events throughout the golf calendar. Whether hosting an event or not, the principles of excellence remain the same at El Tinto Golf Course.
As our guest, you will walk fairways created to host a PGA Tour event, where one day a chapter of golf history may be written.” – El Tinto Golf Course

My Review: I played the TPC Cancun in May 2014, at that time it was in  very poor condition with  a lot of construction work being carried out. The structure and design of the course is good with some nice lakes and well crafted holes but in my opinion opened it’s doors a little too early as the course was not ready, that said this course clearly has the potential to be one of if not the  best course in Cancun. I understand the new clubhouse is now open but sadly reports are that the condition of the course is still lacking the quality expected of a TPC. Further more there seems to be some internal management dispute with TPC releasing this statement in Sept 2014. I will be revisiting the course this year (2015) to re evaluate and will post an update here. My advice if you are considering playing here is to check the latest reviews on trip advisor and get in touch with the club before parting with any money.
