If you are thinking about planning a golf vacation to Mexico you are not alone. Mexico is the world’s number two golf destination for U.S. golfers. And Mexico is planning on taking the number one spot away from Hawaii as soon as it can. At the rate we are going it probably won’t be too long before we realize our goal. The country is diverse geographically and there are gorgeous courses located throughout Mexico.
The best time to visit might be before or after the rainy season, which is from June through September. Nevertheless, most of the courses you will encounter are well made and will drain quite well. And since it usually rains in the afternoon you can avoid the heavy downpours by booking morning tee times. Mornings are the best time to golf in Mexico anyway because of the heat. Additionally, if you travel during the low season you can save hundreds in lower hotel rates and greens fees.
The next decision will probably be picking where you want to spend your golf vacation. You will find a wide range of courses across the length and breadth of Cancun and the Riviera Maya. Teed Off Tee Times has several choices of links and the decision can be left to whatever other activities or ambiances you would like to experience. Cancun, Cozumel, or Playa del Carmen are known as party towns as well as being home to several championship style courses as well.
Another type of golf vacation to consider is having us arrange for an escorted tour of outstanding courses that would include your lodging as well as other side tours that center on the history and culture of Mexico. These tours can be designed especially with your desires in mind and can offer what would seem to be two vacations in one. You can golf in the morning, dine in the jungle for lunch, and then take a tour of a cenote. This might be just one day’s itinerary!
For someone who enjoys golf, travel to far away, exotic lands with championship style golf courses represents the ultimate get away. Mexico, with all of its myriad resort areas and complement of all different types of golf experiences can provide anyone with a great golf vacation. And, with comparable prices to a golf trip to Hawaii, traveling to Mexico for your next golf vacation can prove to be an affordable good time.

Guess what else happened last week in Playa del Carmen, Riviera Maya? CINE PARa TODOS!!! Which means “Movies for Everyone” in Spanish… This event which was put on by the Greg Norman Production Company the week of the tournament was a spin off from their Golf PARa Todos which is a free golf clinic that they host once a month throughout the rest of the year at El Camaleon golf course. Except the twist this time was an on-site movie theater playing one of the funniest golf movies ever “Happy Gilmore” with Adam Sandler. This event was free to the public for anyone that wanted to grab a seat and watch! Isn’t that so fun?! We thought so. Here are some pictures below from the event…look carefully below for the Mayakoba Golf Classic mascot “Don P. Pelota”!!!
Wow. Another great Mayakoba Golf Classic has come and gone, and it just keeps getting better and better. Can you believe it has been 5 years? Our hat goes off to all the staff, volunteers and spectators alike to make it such a fantastic experience.
Johnson Wagner won the Mayakoba Golf Classic on Sunday for his second PGA TOUR title, beating Spencer Levin with a par on the first hole of a playoff. Wagner, winner of the 2008 Shell Houston Open, closed with a 4-under 67 to match Levin at 17-under 267 on the Greg Norman-designed El Camaleón course.
John Daly, Charles Howell III and Boo
Weekly are just a few of the names that participated in this
year’s Mayakoba Golf Classic, that was held at El Camaleon Golf Club at
Mayakoba in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Classic, which made history
in 2007 by becoming the first PGA Tour event held outside of the
United States, began Wednesday, February 23 with the Pro-Am
competition. The first round of the tournament started Thursday
morning with the final round taking place Sunday, February 27. All
four rounds of the tournament were broadcasted on the Golf Channel.
The Mayakoba Golf Classic highlights a growing trend in the Riviera
Maya region to move closer to self sustainability, while focusing on
the eco-tourism of the area. Nestled on Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula,
Riviera Maya offers tourist numerous eco-tourism options including a
mile long stretch of powdery, white sandy beaches with turquoise
waters, snorkeling and diving at a pristine coral reef, which is the
second largest in the world, and a world class golf course in El
Camaleon Golf Club at Mayakoba. The area also offers archeological
day trips including Chichen Itza, famous for the 91-step pyramid and
Tulum, a walled Mayan port city perched above scenic beaches on the
Mayakoba is home to four luxurious resorts, two of which are AAA
Five-Diamond Award winners, including Fairmont Mayakoba, Rosewood
Mayakoba, Banyan Tree Mayakoba and The Viceroy Mayakoba (opening next
year). Each property is doing its part to contribute to the area’s
sustainability as well, by making a conscious effort to maintain and
protect the area’s fragile eco-system. The hotel properties in
Mayakoba feature locally authentic architecture and are all built
below the tree-line in an effort to integrate the resort properties
with as little disruption to the local environment as possible.
Additionally, to harmonize with its distinctive surroundings, the
Fairmont Mayakoba employs a full-time ecologist, and throughout the
property, indigenous flora have been carefully tagged, transplanted
and grafted in special beds, employing a traditional Mayan technique
known as socoleo. Even the property’s restaurants promote
sustainability practices with their use of the chef’s garden, which
grows a wide range of fruits and vegetables from pineapples to papaya
and tomatoes to carrots.
