What a golf course! Comfortably the toughest I've ever played off the blues! The course is designed by Robert Trent Jones and it's got teeth as well as an abundance of candidates for signature hole.

I played this spectacular course on a recent vacation to Akumal and have to say it was one of the most fun courses I have played, and I have played Pebble Beach.
