This is a fun course for vacationers in Playa del Carmen. Challenging but even us 20 handicap folks can still shoot OK. Not a whole lot of water, as you might think, but lots of sand!!! Green fees may sound pricey but most include your drinks and lunch. If you do not have golf balls, buy a couple of sleeves... More

This course is a BLAST to play but you better bring your A+ game! The fairways are not particularly tight, but EVERY possible shot at any part of the game has some kind of devilishly placed obstacle. Every shot has to be carefully thought out and well executed, which makes it SO much fun to play and such a challenge.... More

You won't be disappointed when you golf at this course. I was very excited to see a Jack Nicklaus course. I golfed at 3:00 in the afternoon and it was very hot....but the staff was very attentive and constantly brought water. Great experience!

I'd review this course as one in which you could either score very well or have a shocker. I didn't feel fairways too tight as some people suggest I actually thought they were quite open compared to what I was use to. However the greens were ridiculously small the tightest I've ever played. Lots of water hazards and bunkers made... More

Beautiful well kept course. Plenty of dog legs and water which kept things interesting. Excellent refreshment provision whilst on the course. The twilight price was reasonable we felt. Only negative was the greens were a little sandy.

Beautiful course in great shape. A superb mental challenge. Sand traps and obstacles just where you didn't want it to be. Snacks and drinks included in the greens fee.

The golf club have teamed up with the Riu chains, this allows you to have a free taster session each week of the golf club. I would not class my self as a golfer, however I enjoy playing occasionally. When you are there you are also given tips from the clubs pro. All in all it was a very good... More

I have played this course numerous times. It is fun, challenging and the wildlife is awesome. The price is good, the staff is very friendly and always willing to help. The food is good and there is always a beverage cart around.
