This is by far in my top 3 favorite golf courses, the fairways are pristine, the greens unbelievable conditions, this is not an easy course it requires straight game and really good putting skills but the par 3's, men those alone are worth the game, it's hot so start early, the golf carts have GPS of great quality, the predict...

We opted to play nine holes only as we had Akron in the option of a cheaper rate after 1pm. It is mandatory to have a cart which has a great digital course map and course info playing on the screen. If you only want to play nine holes they will send you on the par 3 course otherwise they... More

Lovely course. I'm new to golf so my first full course. Hired the clubs. A little on the costly side. Play includes cart but not refreshments. Played 18 holes but given the heat would recommend the back 9 in August. There were lots of mosquito which the staff told us (after we finished) that many people don't play at this... More

The club have a special arrangement with our hotel Dreams at Puerto Aventuras so we thought we'ed giving it a go and my wife and I were delighted with the course itself which was one of the nicest I've played at in recent years. Well designed & laid out by the renown Robert Trent Jones with plenty of interesting holes... More

Played on July 4th and started 7am. By 10am it was blistering hot. Had a great play. Course was amazing. Forest, water, traps, cliffs, and plenty of lizards. Course was vast and surprisingly 99 perfect condition. I'm in amazement that with such a hot sun the course was in such and beautiful condition. Roughs stops your ball quick and the... More

Myself and my husband played the course 6 times during our stay at the Bahia Coba 17th -2nd May 2016. The staff are very efficient. We called to book our tee times direct from our hotel room asking to be put through to the golf shop. By doing this they arrange transport from the lobby to the course 1/ 2... More

I spent all of Thanksgiving there in 2015. Played three times during the week. I really like the track. It's pretty tuff in spots, but overall very playable, and certainly beautiful to look at. I will say keeping it in the fairway is an absolute must. There really isn't much room off of the fairways, and if your ball goes... More
