Hard Rock Golf Club Riviera Maya
The Hard Rock Golf Club Riviera Maya is one of the most well-known courses in the area. Located in the gated community of Playacar, this golf course was designed by renowned course designer Robert von Hagge. This is one of the older courses in the area, and is a staple of golf in the Riviera Maya. You can learn more about this course on the Hard Rock Riviera Maya Golf Course website.
Iberostar Golf Club Playa Paraiso
The Iberostar Golf Club is one of the best courses in the area, and the most highly rated on TripAdvisor. Designed by P.B. Dye and family, this course is a par 72, with just over 6,800 yards of play. It’s one of my personal favorites, and a definite must-play. You can book your round of golf at http://golf.iberostar.com/en/riviera-maya/golf-courses/iberostar-playa-paraiso-golf-club.
El Camaleon Mayakoba
El Camaleon is perhaps the most interesting course on the list. Some holes are beautiful and lush, while others are rocky and sandy. This course was built in 2006, designed by the legendary Greg Norman. At over 7,000 yards, this par 72 course is a true gem in Playa del Carmen. You can book your tee time on the Mayakoba website.
El Manglar is a shorter golf course, with a par of 54. Designed by the one and only Jack Nicklaus, there are quite a few interesting holes. The par 3’s are challenging, and although the course is short, it’s not easy. You can read some great reviews from visitors on TripAdvisor here.
Grand Coral Golf Riviera Maya
Created by Nick Price, the Grand Coral Golf Club is last but certainly not least on our list of the best golf courses in Playa del Carmen. A par 71 course, it provides a nice challenge. Located within Playacar and close to other golf clubs, you will feel isolated and at ease in the jungle setting. You can book your tee time direct through Grand Coral.
