Tough but great course!

The course is well laid out, with lots of sweeping holes (largely favouring draw shots) narrow approaches, rocky outcrops, impenetrable rough/scrub and elevated greens. The back... read more

The course is well laid out, with lots of sweeping holes (largely favouring draw shots) narrow approaches, rocky outcrops, impenetrable rough/scrub and elevated greens. The back 9 is fantastic with many turquoise lakes and water hazards making tee shots very challenging! The combination of a sea level course, well watered fairways and well protected elevated greens make this course play... More

Riviera Maya Golf Club is a beautiful setting and a great test of golf. Natural cliffs, cenotes, and lakes adorn the course but will gobble up errant shots so bring extra balls. We booked through the hotel and only paid $113 per round (half the normal rate). The staff is very good and club rentals/free club storage is available. Multiple... More

The executive course is outstanding, too, if you want to get in a quick 9 or 18 holes. Every hold is interesting and challenging, and the conditioning is marvelous. The staff is very accommodating, too - you'll enjoy the experience!

Course is by Robert Trent Jones- challenging layout and can consume golf balls but enjoyable and in great shape. That said, staff was indifferent at best and most fo the attention seems to be about selling real estate (you don't get pitched though). We were coming from Playa del carmen about 45 minutes away so we did not get a... More

Please bring your own clubs this will save you a lot of money, the course is demanding , lots of water, lots of wild animals about, but well worth the costs you will pay, you need to keep it straight , or you will loose your ball, Well I could pay this course every day but the wife would not...

Great Course and deserves its accolades and the PGA Tour stop. The holes are all interesting and those along the canals and the ocean are very special - and it's challenging for both hackers and single digit handicapers alike. When in the Cancun area it is definitely worth finding the time to play one of the best courses in the... More

I stayed at the Sa'an Kian Hotel which is opposite the course. I brought my own clubs with me on holiday which saved me a lot of money on fees . If you're part of the hotels there's no green fees BUT you have to rent a cart which clearly makes up for that ($100 in the morning and $60... More

Booked 3 4-balls during our holiday last year. The course is beautiful and staff were very helpful. Hired clubs were adequate and buggies, (included in golf cost) were fine. There were beers brought to the golfers regularly,
