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

Played course 3 times during honeymoon stay at hotel complex. The course is amazing with club house to match. Very enjoyable course slightly daunting at first sight but it's a must to play more than once to benefit from knowledge of layout. Caddy shack guys are all very helpful and great fun. If your a golfer on holiday in Riviera... More

not the cheapest course that i have ever played, but probably the best. very well designed with potential dangers for all standards of golfer. the course was in excellent condition, the greens are not super speedy but very true when you get the hang of them. there are a quite a few "signature holes". all the staff are excellent highly...

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
