They charge $45 for a cart rider on the short par 3 course which takes about 90 minutes. Same price as the full course. One to be avoided

Just returned from the Maya Riveria and had an opportunity to play here... We booked our tee time through our resort (Grand Palladium) at $138/person and thought it was a bit pricey, but still beat the $200 rack rate if you book through the club itself. Either way, our resort gave us a receipt for our rate and we couldn't... More

We golfer here twice in our visit in February. Getting to and from the golf club from Grand Bahia Principe Tulum was very easy. The golf course is very well maintained, from the fairways to the greens. It is a very challenging course My only negative comment about the course is the slow play. No representative on course to make... More

Played both courses recently and only reason I didn't rate this as a 5 star was the price. Executive course was great,lots of variety of distances,water and sand, but at $46 per 9 holes(played it in 1 hr 15 min) quite expensive. Seen only 1 other group on course, no wonder. Full size course was very professional ,in great shape,good... More

Riviera Maya Golf Club in the Bahia Principe resort was a great experience! The green fees included all non-alcoholic beverages and snacks on the bev cart. The course itself is a Robert Trent Jones Jr. design that is both challenging and fair. The course was in excellent shape in December 2014 and the greens were exceptional. Rated 3rd best in... More

What a beautiful course. Husband, son, son-in-law and bro-in-law felt they were in the PGA! Unlike Canadian golf courses, the beverage cart had reasonably priced beverages.

I was three times on dic, I always play in Mayakoba, but this time my location was closer to this golf course. The course is ok, the service is terrible, it's expensive, the staff if poor, lack of them and in bad mood. The store is also terrible. And the worst part it's more expensive than Mayakoba. No drinks, it... More
