This is a terrific golf course. I have been playing it for the last 15 years and it is always challenging. The disappointment is the management. I played there over the MLK weekend and had them store my clubs. My wife always has tip money in her bag but it disappeared while they were storing our clubs. In addition, there... More

Was promised transportation from my hotel , transport did not show up. had to call them, pushed back my tee time , we finished with roughly 15 min of daytime left. Track is narrow, rough is a killer, grabbing the club. You HAVE to be in the fairway (easier said than done when that narrow). Definitively helps if you played... More

Visited November 2014. All inclusive Green Fee (Food, Cart and Game) $200. £129. Value for money, I thought a bot steep given the quality of the course. However I am told that the price is negotiable if purchased in bulk. As my second round was free, I thought that 2 rounds of golf is exceptional value. I have to say... More

This was without question a challenging course but not worth the $250 all inclusive green fees. All inclusive includes meals and beverages. The breakfast was descent but not stellar by any means. The beverage cart on the course stopped frequently but how many beers can a person drink at 7:30 in the morning? The practice facility was quite nice and... More

I picked the one day it rained to golf during my stay in Playa. The staff was all very friendly and accommodating and there was hardly anyone there when I arrived. I booked thru an online 3rd party and got the twilight rate a little earlier than listed thru the club. The other golfers however I found to make for... More

I'm unable to visit anywhere in the world without trying to get at least 1 round of golf in, so after a little research I picked Playacar as I was staying downtown Playa Del Carmen and this was walking distance from the hotel. First off I checked the rates online and through the hotel I was staying at and all... More

Booked a round of golf thru the hotel I was staying, at a cost of $145 US. This included pick up and drop off from the hotel, a full set of Callaway clubs in good condition, basket of range balls, a buggie and unlimited drinks and food. I am an 11 handicap and found the course an enjoyable challenge. I... More

Straight and narrow. Loved that food and drinks were included; there was always a service cart around!
