Where to find the best golf in Riviera Maya
Locogringo has done the hard work for you and selected the top 4 golf courses in Riviera Maya to ensure your time away from the beach and on the links is well spent. These golf courses provide the luxury of English-speaking staff, golf carts, and cart services providing drinks and snacks during your round. Plus, their on-site pro-shops offer excellent club rentals including Taylor Made, Titleist, and Callaway so no need to lug around oversized baggage with you. The dress code does require a collared shirt for men and ladies though shoe restrictions are not terribly strict, a sturdy sneaker will suffice.
