Estrella Del Mar's golf course was an excellent surprise and value. I have family in Mazatlan and had often wanted to play golf at El Cid which, for many years, was the only place to play. I made reservations to play there and later discovered Estrella Del Mar's web site while scouring the web for golf courses to play in Mazatlan. The afternoon rate is $69.00 (USD) and you can't beat it for value. The course was eerily lonely the first time I played it, but in absolutely perfect condition. The fairways are wide enough for the novice but the water and sand bunkers that line the fairways in several locations require careful shot selection. Some of the bunkers are 100 yards long! The greens are fairly true and can be challenging to reach safely because they are often protected by bunkers. While the course itself is reason enough to play, you'll want to save time for a round here because of the absolutely beautiful beach views you will be rewarded with. Some of the greens are a scant few yards from the sand and you can hear the waves coming in as you putt...absolutely fantastic location. While they are selling condominiums or time-shares there, we weren't approached once by any sales people.One word of caution. The golf carts are standard EZ-Gos and work well enough...until you try to stop them. For whatever reason, their carts' brakes don't work well and you will want to test yours before you end up behind your partner's cart on a downhill path. Play this course! You'll be happy you did.
