Cozumel Country Club

Set in a marshy area in the mangroves of Cozumel, water shows up on the majority of holes. Walkways between holes is like a walk through a nature preserve. Densely forested patches of jungle line the fairways as well. The course is quiet and peaceful, and the golfing is nothing less than you'd expect from a Nicklaus Design.

Course Description

Founded in 2001, this course in Cancun and the Mexican Caribbean has become an established site for visiting golfers. The course layout, hole placement, and bunkers all came from the imagination of Nicklaus Design Group, the architect of the course. The golf course has been given a course rating of 66.7, and its 18 holes have a total distance of 5624 yards.

The course is cut into the lush surroundings of northwest Cozumel. They have taken care to preserve the delicate ecosystem as much as possible, and as a result, the course is home to an incredible amount of native wildlife. Birds, turtles, crabs, iguanas, crocodiles and raccoons all call the course home. The rustic club house is also a very interesting feature. It has a palapa design (thatched roof) and makes full use of its jungle setting.
