Each day between now and the end of October, Tee’d Off Tee Times will list each of the Top 12 Golf Courses in the Cancun/Riviera Maya destination.
The criteria we use is not scientific and the difference between 12 and 1 is really not that much. Personal preference, prestige in playing, designer, course design and layout, course conditioning and guest service were all taken into consideration.
And now, coming in at #1 on our list of the 12 best courses is El Camaleon Mayakoba. Host to the PGA Tour Mayakoba Golf Classic and located within the tourist destination of Mayakoba, this 7,044 yard layout is the first Greg Norman designed course to open in Mexico and boasts 3 separate environmental changes (jungle, mangrove and ocean front) and two holes along the Mexican Caribbean.
The 7th and 15th holes play right to the edge of the Caribbean Sea with the sand and the spray punctuating the breeze. The course is a part of the Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary Program for Golf Courses. Also on property is the first and only Jim McLean Golf School in Mexico.
