My wife and I were in Cancun the week of June 2rd. We’re avid golfers and wanted to play at the TPC Cancun as a result of hearing its new and a challenging course. On the day of our Sunday arrival it rained for hours every day through Thursday, something unusual for the area. The course is located inside the Cancun Country Club, which is still in its infancy stage of development and construction. The actual course itself is complete but the Pro Shop still lacks some finishing touches. The last day of rain was Thursday morning and we were told the course would likely be open for play on Saturday and made a tee-time.
On our arrival we were greeted in the parking area by a swarm of mosquitoes that were larger than those we have in Texas. We warmed up on the driving, chipping green and putting green, all of which are great, and although the mosquitoes were fewer in numbers, they were still present. We teed off hole #10 because Honda was sponsoring a golf tournament that day. We were constantly disturbed by mosquitoes in the tee boxes, fairways, and greens, even after we applied “Off”, which we bought at exorbitant prices at the Pro Shop. On hole #12, the mosquitoes were so many that it was difficult to take a shot, and when you did, it was usually a bad one due to lack of concentration. When we got to the #12th green, we agreed playing in those circumstances was not fun and decided to quit.
At the Pro Shop we asked the lady for a refund, but she explained all she could do was offer a “rain check.” I explained it would be of no value because we live outside the country and don’t know when we will be back. After much discussion, we were granted a complete refund, which we are grateful for because the green fees are high.
What little we saw of the golf course is absolutely awesome with respect to layout, scenery, and quality of fairways and greens. Also, it is definitely a course designed for pros. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a challenging game, but only if it has not rained as much as it did when we were there.
