Teed Off Tee Times Lists the 12 Best Golf Courses in Cancun/Riviera Maya

Each day until 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.

We are at the halfway point in our countdown, so lets review golf courses 12 through 7.

Coming in at #12 Cozumel Country Club.  This Nicklaus Design Group course is one of the oldest in the area, opening in 2001, and is the first golf course in Mexico to earn the designation of Certified Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary from Audubon International.

At #11 is El Manglar.  This 18-hole, par 54, 2923-yard course opened in early 2003 is great resort course with predominant trade winds that demand pinpoint accuracy and challenges even the most experienced of players.

#10 is Iberostar Cancun. Located in the heart of the Cancun hotel-zone, this 18-Hole, Par 72 Championship golf course is set within ancient Mayan Ruins and teeming with numerous tropical birds, native iguanas and huge crocodiles.

#9 on our list is Riviera Cancun.  Located at the south end of the hotel zone, this 18 hole, 7,060 yard, par 72 Jack Nicklaus Signature Design course is carved from the terrain’s natural contours and features two holes with gorgeous ocean views.

On our countdown at #8 is Playacar Golf Club.  Designed in 1995 by Robert Von Hagge, this par 72, 7,144 yard course is located in the heart of Playa del Carmen and is considered one of the most challenging in the region, especially the long, narrow front nine.

And at #7, is Playa Mujeres. Opening in July of 2006, this Greg Norman signature design is the region’s longest course at 7,218 yards offering spectacular views of the Caribbean Sea and located north of downtown Cancun, 20 minutes from the hotel zone.

Teed Off Tee Times Lists the 12 Best Golf Courses in Cancun/Riviera Maya

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.

Coming in at #7 is Playa Mujeres Golf Club. The second Greg Norman signature design in the destination is located north of downtown Cancun and 20 minutes from the hotel zone. Great news is that the highway between Cancun and Playa Mujeres is being expanded, which will cut down on travel time when completed.

This Greg Norman signature 18-hole course features ecologically friendly championship golf with carefully crafted water holes, jungles, bunkers and greens, utilizing a rearrangement of the site’s native plants, trees and other indigenous foliage.

Opening in July of 2006 and the longest course in the region measuring 7,218 yards, this course sits between the Caribbean Sea and Chachmochuc Lagoon and several holes offer spectacular views of the Caribbean Sea.

Tee’d Off Tee Times Lists The 12 Best Golf Courses In Cancun/Riviera Maya

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.

Coming in at #11 is El Manglar Golf Course. This 18-hole course opened in early 2003 and was conceived with full respect for both, the naturally abundant fauna and the environmentally sensitive areas that surround it. A great resort course with predominant trade winds that demand pinpoint accuracy and challenges even the most experienced of players.

An 18-hole, par 54 course, this 2923-yard long filled with radiant white sand traps, the dark tones of natural stone lining pristine lakes, the deep, lush hue of the greens and the waste bunkers, this course is a garden of delights for golf lovers.

An imposing golf course with many surprising features, for example the 276 yard-long 13th hole played into the prevailing wind. The 17th, the course’s signature hole, nicknamed “Donna-green”, boasts two bunkers on either side of the green and one more at its center, making it a one-of-a-kind, and notoriously difficult to escape from with a par.  On the 195-yard 18th, players have only a one-shot chance to get to the green, which is built on an island-like mound with a trap at the entrance.

Planning A Great Golf Vacation To Mexico

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.
