I first played Playacar in 1996 when it was first carved out of the jungle and then again 10 years later as it became more developed and again now that it is mature. It is rated as the toughest course in the Yucatan and that rating is well deserved. Not particularly long or tricky and in good condition, but the... More

I have written plenty of reviews over the past year, but none of them have been labeled as terrible, I actually feel ripped off for what it cost me to play here in total and poor service. There were a couple of issues in particular that were of concern, I tried to speak to a manager after I had played... More

Went and played a fun scramble with a few dozen of our friends and let me tell you this course is harder than it appears! There are several risk reward holes to make you a hero or the laughing stock of your buddy's! We really enjoyed all the wildlife too, from the lizards big enough to swallow a golf ball... More

This course incorporates more wild life etc. than most courses. Numerous and large ponds with plenty of waterfowl. Do not know what else I say, but I stayed away. Course is in great shape, well manicured, traps well groomed, greens very fair. Food beer free but selection of food very limited. I played back 9 with 3 local and learned... More

This course was recently taken over by Hard Rock and needs some work. The course is narrow and many place for the balls to hide in the high grass, bunkers, moguls. Way too many raccoon like critters caused for even more distractions. Green fees include food & drinks but reality was that there was very minimal snacks & drinks. Beverage... More

The fairways are narrow and challenging.The greens are only average. Lost balls are the norm so stay on the fairway. Great day had by all, the bev cart was around regularily. The food in the club house has a tremendous long way to improve! Hard Rock just took over so I expect it to improve. Would go again.
