Riviera Maya Golf Club

Unlike most other courses in the Maya Riviera, which are generally fairly flat, this course achieves a surprising amount of elevation change. While the terrain on the front 9 is more gentle, the back 9 experiences the bulk of the elevation shifts. The back 9 is also where the vegetation becomes more mature, and where golfers can enjoy the course's cenote's.

Course Description

Robert Trent Jones II designed the course. The golf course has earned a course rating of 72.1, and its 18 holes have a total distance of 6691 yards.

The Riviera Maya Golf Club features 2 courses: an 18-hole and a 9-hole. The courses were cut out from a limestone quarry, and are spread out over the dense jungle of Mexico's Caribbean coast. The course is home to many of the natural features that make Mexico's eastern coast special, including their cenote's -- the spectacular sinkholes collapsed from the underlying limestone bedrock.
