“Good course but pricey”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2013

We played the Par 3 course first, which was a mistake, very expensive and only 9 holes for $180 for the two of us. It was our fault we should have checked the prices but thought it would be a nice cheap round. we then played full 18 hole course, which cost $250 for the two of us, excellent course in very good condition and challenging enough for a high handicapper. Club house is magnificent - but barely used which suggests they should drop the prices a little?

“Riviera Maya Golf Club needs to be experienced”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2013

The RMGC is a gorgeous course, in pristine condition and very challenging. Bring lots of balls. Robert Trent Jones II shaped the course beautifully through the natural landscape including incorporating a magnificent cenote into one of the holes. It's a don't miss destination if you're looking for golf on the Riviera Maya.

“Stunning course”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2013

This golf course is very luxurious from the club house, to the course, to the bathrooms on the golf course. Play early in the morning as it get very hot, also be prepared to play with others if you are not a foursome already. There is service on the course and all non-alcoholic beverages and snacks are included.

We left our clubs at the clubhouse at no charge during our 1 week stay at GBP Tulum, we played 5 times and the bus from Tulum to the golf course came often and we were never late for our 8am tee time. What was also appreciated was that if we waited for more than a few minutes for the bus back in front of the club house we were driven back in an SUV by an employee of the golf course.

Although expensive, 80$ each per game, the cost of the mandatory cart(those who stay at the GBP do not pay green fees), which is needed seeing the length of the course and heat, we will return in the future to play this phenomenal golf course.

“Bring A Lot Of Balls”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2012

Found this course very challenging as I'm an average golfer but couldn't pass up the chance to play here. Carts all have gps for yardages and clubhouse facilities are top notch. Would definitely love to do another 18 here.
