Owner description: The only TPC Licenced property located outside of the United States, TPC Cancun at Cancun Country Club is the new standard of excellence in Latin America. Attention to detail, world-class service and amenities, and a professional, friendly staff-the hallmarks of private golf clubs throughout the world, until now. TPC Cancun provides a private club experience to each and every guest. Environmental awareness was integral to the design and development of TPC Cancun. Special care was taken with sensitive flora and fauna indigenous to the region, while designer Nick Price incorporated naturally occurring water features and elevation changes into his world-class creation. The course boasts wall-to-wall Platinum Paspalum, the Cadillac of grass in this region, as well as 84 bunkers and 5 lakes. Mr. Price succeeded in creating within each hole a challenge for golfers of all abilities. Located just minutes from the main Hotel Zone, Cancun International Airport and 25 minutes from Playa Del Carmen, playing the course is as convenient as it is memorable. TPC Cancun, the new standard of excellence in Latin America.

It is in a community setting but only 2 houses that we could see were built. It was very wet and flooded and should not have been open. Cart paths completely underwater and cart path only. We did get a break in price to $149 but we weren't there for a bargain rate. We wanted a nice course with good drainage. I will give it another chance but not in December. Free transportation from hotel zone. See my review of Pok-Ta-Pok golf course.

Great course but not for a beginner. The length was pretty long and some fairways were pretty tight but that is what you should expect from this type of course. We played off season for 169 plus rental clubs. The green fees included a shuttle from our hotel but we had to call to see where they were as they were late. Didnt matter since we could not tee off before 730 and we were the first ones off. Not overly busy. Got free range balls before our round but could have been due to the wait. Our tee time was 640. The rental clubs were Callaway and seemed to be brand new. We had two lefties in our foursome and it was not a problem. Fairways and greens were in great shape. Friendly staff. Not a lot of extras for the price like other courses and the balls were very expensive. Recommend bringing your own dozen balls. Not many houses as of Nov 2013. Would play again possibly if the price was right.

This is a course in a residential development 5 mins South of the International Airport. The development was conceived to host 2 courses, one designed by Nick Price and another by Tom Fazio currently the Nick Price course is open to the public. The course is mostly flat (remember that overall Cancun is flat land) through the 18 holes you will play in a combination of jungle and mangroves that are home to a variety of birds and mammals that will entertain you during your round. In regards of play, the courses offer 5 sets of tees to choose from for a total of 7,439 yds playing from the back tees. The fairways are wide and generous however the ball bounces off them a bit due to the compact of the soil and to the fact that turf has not yet grown completely, once this is achieved in constant basis the fairways will be able to receive the ball better. I noticed that approach areas where unusually moisty but playable this was perhaps due to the excess of rain that Cancun has been suffering for the past weeks. Greens are good, bunkers are challenging specially in a couple of holes that the green is almost surrounded by them. Service by the outside staff, beverage cart attendant and front desk was flawless. I will definitelly recommend to play this course now and more so in a about a year when I am sure the conditions will improve and will truly represent the standars of a TPC course.

When the Faldo course matures is will be fabulous. Fairways were firm and fast but thin. The green complexes were excellent, fair with some challenge. Bunkers were soft and fluffy and well positioned. But, it is still immature.

The Fazio course is still growing in and they advised me that it won't open for another 2 years or so - but what we saw of it looked fabulous!

The clubhouse looks like it will be awesome once it is open - sometime off though.

As a TPC Club member we have service and condition expectations - and while the club is not there yet it is definitely on the right path. So happy we played there and not the other Cancun courses.

We can't wait to come back next year and play it again after another year of maturity and we can't wait for Fazio to open!

On the week of June 17- 2013. Course explained they had a lot of rain the last couple of weeks. Couldn't make it past 5 holes without being eaten alive by the mosquitoes. They were everywhere, and much larger than we get back in the U.S. West Nile and Malaria are not worth it.

Drove back to the clubhouse and got a full refund without much of a problem.
