Golfing in Playa del Carmen and Cancun

There are many advantages to living in Mexico and being the owner of the only local golf booking agency in Cancun and Playa del Carmen.  I am originally from Canada and followed my husband with his job.

The picture and the smiles tells the story. I get to play on fantastic golf courses that you find only in Mexico.   This picture was taken at El Camaleon, the host of the PGA Tour’s Mayakoba Golf Classic. Designed by the legendary Greg Norman, the 7,000-yard layout is unique.  This signature hole, number 15, is a challenging par 3 but rewards you with white sand beach and sky blue ocean.  The stunning golf course bends through three distinct landscapes – tropical jungle, dense mangroves, and oceanfront stretches of sand with holes bisected by massive limestone canals.  Hole 1 incorporates a cenote, a massive, ancient cavern common to the area, into the heart of the opening fairway.  What are you waiting for www.teedofftimes.com

Who Will Win Again, Justin Rose, Bubba Watson or Keegan Bradley

During the WGC Cadillac Championships at Doral’s final round, three big names in golf were battling down the stretch to claim another career PGA Tour title. Keegan Bradley hasn’t been on the scene long but, with a major, another PGA Tour win and multiple top 10s, has risen above the rest. Bubba Watson is the fan favorite nearly every time he tees it up and over the last two seasons has gone from “fun play with tons of talent” to “potential major champion that has refined all parts of his golf game.” And the eventual champion, Justin Rose, is a late-bloomer but has now claimed four titles in the last 20 months, more than anyone else on the PGA Tour.
But the one thing all of those guys shared was no matter which of the threesome won, it would be a first in 2012.  There have been 12 PGA Tour events and 12 different winners. Nobody repeating.

Bubba Watson in the favorites by the fans.  Known for incredible shot-making, mammoth drives, a hot pink shafted driver and an electric personality, Bubba Watson is a true all American superstar.  Bubba grew up the small town of Bagdad, Florida where he began the game of golf at age 6.  He was given a cut down 9-iron from his father and learned to play the game by hitting wiffle-balls around the house.  More interestingly, the only golf lesson Bubba received was from his father at a very young age and he has not had a lesson since.  He is truly a self-taught golfer.

Keegan Bradley voted 2011 PGA Tour Rookie of the Year. Based on his phenomenal first year on the tour, including a major win in the PGA Championship, Keegan Bradley was voted Rookie of the Year by his peers on the PGA Tour.  The prototypical modern golfer, Keegan always ranks near the top in driving distance and has great touch on and around the greens. He turned pro in 2008 and became a PGA Tour member after finishing 14th on the final Nationwide

Justin Rose is one of the leading European players and was the winner of the “European Tour Order of Merit” in 2007. He was seen by a Global TV audience in the 2008 Ryder Cup performing as the best rookie of both teams. Only three years later in 2010, Justin had two victories on the PGA Tour in the space of a 4 week period.  His maiden victory in the US came at the famous Jack Nicklaus Memorial tournament and he was very close to making it two wins in two events at the Travelers Championship. Justin went on to secure his 2nd win in the US just a week later at the AT&T National.

Canadians Really Love Golf

Good Morning Cheryl
Cheryl , I want to thank you for a job well done booking our tee times and transportation and having things go so smoothly. It was done with utmost professionalism and with a caring touch.
Seeing you there unexpectedly was even a bigger surprise with a professional touch. Thank you so much! You are awesome!  If you want to use my testimony and reviews I am more than happy to allow you to use anything I say.  You got a 10 plus out of  10 for a fantastic perfect rating!
We are home now and we golfed our hearts out. Every day for two weeks plus doing 36 holes some days . All the courses are awesome.  The Riviera Maya Golf Course was a bit disappointing but a good course if the people would look after it more. And I am talking about the golfers themselves.
 
Playacar Golf Course, Mayakoba El Camaleon Golf Course, and the Moon Palace Golf Courses were our favorites. Riviera Cancun Golf Course was well taken care of and we put it in the category of Mayokoba to a certain extent.
We just loved our vacation, and really enjoyed the golf and will recommend to everyone.
Cheryl don’t forget what we discussed. As you know I am serious.
Again Cheryl , thankyou, thankyou and thankyou.
A job well done!!!!!!
Hugs
Mary and Bill Lapp

Wonderful Feed Back From The UK

Good afternoon Cheryl

I just wanted to take some time out to thank you for your fantastic efforts in organising golf for my party of 7 golfers during our time in Cancun recently.

All my fellow golfers have asked me to pass on their thanks to you and were delighted to meet you when you visited us on our last day at Iberostar Paraiso.

You arranged 6 rounds on 4 different courses for us and your initial descriptions of each course was accurate.

We enjoyed all the courses but the consensus was that Cancun Riviera and Iberostar Paraiso were a little bit special. Each presented an excellent test of golf, beautiful scenery and surroundings, and wonderful hospitality.  Mayakoba El Camaleon was spectacular and exceptionally well presented and a very interesting golf course. The Iberostar at Cancun was perfectly acceptable and ticked all the boxes but possibly not as well manicured as the other 3 courses and the slightly lower green fee reflected this point.

If anyone on the UK is travelling to the Cancun area and requires assistance in organising their golf then I will certainly recommend that they get in touch with you.

Good luck and many thanks

Mark Addison
