The Riviera Maya Golf Club
“Riviera Maya Golf Club is a magnificent golf course that extends over an area of 90 hectares of jungle, cenotes and lakes.”
The 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.
The course was partly carved out 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 tees, 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, anywhere 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.
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.
