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.
