Overview

El Camaleon made golf history in 2007 when it became the home of the OHL Classic at Mayakoba, the first PGA Tour event to ever be contested outside of the United States and Canada. Designed by legendary Australian Golfer Greg Norman, El Camaleon boasts an amazing layout featuring three different ecosystems: tropical Mayan jungle, mangrove forest and the Caribbean Sea coastline.

Lovely course - tough to keep on the fairway and interesting layout. The par 3s are quite short as are the par 5s but the par 4s are perfect (from white). ideally youd play the 5s and 3s from blue and the fours from white.
