Riviera Cancun Golf

The fairways here roll along subtly, and a number of holes will give golfers great looks at the Caribbean Sea. The vegetation around the course has been left in tact, and as a result, its flora is varied and unique. The mangroves and the Tasiste (native palms) are real treats. Also enjoy the course's wooden bridges and contemporary clubhouse.

Course Description

Visitors can head over knowing that it will be a modern, refreshingly new golf facility. It was constructed in 2008. The greens, holes, and feared sand traps all came from the imagination of Jack Nicklaus, the lead architect of the course. It has a course rating of 72.3, and its 18 holes measure out to 6292 yards.

Isolated from the busy streets of Cancun and its glitzy resorts and hotels is the Riviera Cancun. The course has been carved out of the swampy mangrove forests south of the city, and incorporates some of the region's natural bodies of water. The setting is tranquil and the views are incredible.
