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 WELCOMES ITS FIRST GUESTS FROM ENGLAND

It seems Teed Off Tee Times has made it across the pond to Manchester and Leeds, England. Earlier this week we welcomed Gary Wilson and Phil Lister to the beautiful Riviera Maya.
Gary (Manchester) and Phil (Leeds) were searching for golf courses before their vacation and came upon us at www.teedoff.com.mx After sending a note to us, Gary and Phil were very happy to find a real person answering their questions and booking their tee times. Here is what they wrote after they returned back to England…
Hi Cheryl,

I’m finding it hard to believe I’m home I can tell you we have played golf in the UK, Spain, Florida and California, before trying the courses on the Riviera Maya this May. We had a great time, playing Grand Coral, Playacar and Mayakoba.

The all-inclusive golf at Playacar was unbelievable. The front 9 was really tricky for us, probably hampered slightly by the few beers we had in the club house before we even started! Eventually we got used to the narrow (for us) fairways and ‘jungle trouble’, and also the refreshments that kept coming all the way round 🙂 My claim to fame here was sinking an 8 foot putt on the 18th to win from 3 down with 5 to play. And also still being able to stand after the several (inclusive) cocktails in the bar afterwards……

Mayakoba was truly amazing; up there with the best we have ever played. I actually played pretty poorly that day, but still enjoyed it immensely. The course was immaculate, and the Par 3s by the beach particularly were fantastic holes. Also great value for a PGA Tour course, given we took advantage of the twilight rate.

Although we would say Mayakoba was ‘the best of the fortnight’, Grand Coral was probably the most forgiving for our standard of play, whilst still providing a great challenge. The fairways were again immaculate, and the water always made you think about which shot to play. We played here three times, a no-brainer for us at $88 a round at 1pm ‘twilight’. On our final day we also met a guy who was involved in building the course – the ‘shaper’ – he was really pleased to hear our positive comments about the layout.

We must also thank you for your organization which enabled us to have such a good time on the course. It was great to meet you on our first day, and we are very grateful for the continuing feedback and assistance you provided throughout our time in Playa Del Carmen. I hope we are the first of many customers for you from the UK – we would certainly encourage anybody coming to the area to golf to secure your services….. 🙂

Thanks again,

Gary.

PS Feel free to use (or not) any of my ramblings.

Thank you Harry and Ian for finding Teed Off Tee Times online and booking your tee times with us as well.
