Puerto Morelos Golfing Guide
Mexico has some spectacular golfing experiences for those who like to enjoy gorgeous tropical views while challenging your group of friends to a new course.
Iberostar Playa Paraiso Golf Club
21 minute drive from Puerto Morelos
An 18 hole, par 72 designed by P. B. Dye, this course is considered one of Dye’s most challenging. Being quite hilly compared to the surrounding area, the Mayan jungle this course was built around was kept in tact to create more hazards throughout.
Food and drinks are included in the price, and the staff is never too far away to make sure you have everything you need!
The Nicklaus Par Three Experience at Vidanta Riviera Maya
22 minute drive from Puerto Morelos
Designed by Jack Nicklaus, this par 54, 18 hole executive course is a masterpiece. Just wait until you hit challenging hole 17 with 3 bunkers!
Tip: make sure to arrive at least 45 minutes – 1 hour before tee time to allow yourself time to park your car at the resort, take a shuttle over to the course, buy snacks, and maybe have a few minutes left to warm up.
Moon Palace Golf & Spa Resort
25 minute drive from Puerto Morelos
A par 36 with 3 separate 9 hole courses to choose from – Jungle, Lakes, and Dunes – this Jack Nicklaus-designed course is another incredible experience to add to your Mexico adventures.
From the natural water features and wetlands on Lakes, to strategically placed bunkers throughout all 27 holes, there are a variety of challenges to suit every golfer’s preference. Choose from 4 sets of tees to set your golfing experience to your preferred level of difficulty.
Refreshments are available at a few stations throughout the course but grab some water at the beginning just in case.
Tip: to save a little money, bring your own clubs, and plenty of golf balls!
Riviera Cancun Golf & Resorts
34 minute drive from Puerto Morelos
An 18 hole, par 72 course, Jack Niclaus designed this using the natural contours of the terrain. A variety of strategic bunkers, lakes, wooden bridges, surrounded with a natural reserve, and ocean views on holes 14 and 15. Enjoy an exclusive feel with the course being placed away from any major roads. Lunch is included with a round of golf.
Tip: to save a little money, bring plenty of your own golf balls.
Caution: watch for crocodiles, and an animal called coati, which is similar to a racoon and will steal food and possibly your phone from your golf cart…
