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.

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.

Eco Friendly Yucatan Peninsula Golfing Will Enhance Your Vacation

Golfing is a great passion for a lot of us and sometimes the reason for that is how much we love being outside. If we can be outside in a gorgeous environment, then so much the better. That’s why Mexico can make a great choice if you want to do some exotic golfing in glorious locations. Let’s take a peek at a couple of terrific options you might not have heard about before.

For golfing, a lot of the best that Mexico has to offer is going to be located on the Yucatan Peninsula, with options like Cancun golf courses. The reason for this is that this is the eastern coast of Mexico where there is a lot of white sandy beach to run on and plenty of tropical jungles or even ancient Mayan ruins to explore. Oh, and you wouldn’t want to forget the sparkling sapphire waters of the Caribbean right there for you to scuba, kite board, water ski or just go swimming in. The great part about this section of Mexico is that the people here value the preservation of nature. They go out of their way to keep things beautiful.

If you have never heard of the island of Cozumel, this is a small island off the coast of the Yucatan and located in Quintana Roo. The place is beautiful and this is where a lot of people go to enjoy a real island paradise. A recent article on Ecplaza {http://www.ecplaza.net/news/13/73787/cozumel_island_celebrates.html} shows that this is, in fact, the home of a unique golf tournament. The Annual Cozumel Island Golf Tournament is now in its 3rd year and looking like a great place to hit the green. Plenty of challenges await you and so do sights of mangrove forest and jungles, too.

A place you just might have heard of, due to its connection with the PGA Tour, is Mayakoba. A recent Fox News Latino article (http://latino.foxnews.com/latino/sports/2011/02/23/lorena-ochoa-greg-norman-design-golf-course-mexico/) shows that Mexican golfer Lorena Ochoa is going to be helping to design a golf course in this ecotourism hot spot. Once that is built you are not going to want to miss tee times here, for sure. After all, Ochoa was the top female golfer for 3 years straight so she knows what she is doing.

As you can see, Mexico has plenty for golf fans that is great golfing and eco friendly. You can check out Cozumel or Playa del Carmen golf courses or even savor some fun at Mayakoba, the choice is yours. One thing is for sure, though: the Yucatan is a tremendous place to tee off if you want to be surrounded by tropical majesty of the finest kind. Mexico is the place for golfers who love sunshine and care about natural beauty.
