Designed by Robert Tent Jones II, Riviera Maya Golf Club has quickly gained international recognition. This Riviera Maya golf course was chosen as one of the Top 3 golf courses in Mexico in 2011 by Golf & Spa Magazine. The Riviera Maya Golf Club at Bahia Principe is located between Tulum and Playa del Carmen near the village of Akumal.
The club offers both an 18 hole, par 72 championship course and a 1,356 yard 9-hole, par 27 course. You can decide how much time and how many holes you want to play.
Those who have played the full 18 at least once rave about the natural beauty and playability of the course. Amazing views, shiny dark-green Pastpalum Platinum covered fairways, numerous lakes and ancient cenotes are woven into the layout – all creating a one-of-the-kind golfing experience.
Try playing the second hole into a stiff wind. This 210 yard uphill par 3 will definitely test your skills. So will the spectacular 15th, long par 3, hole that spans 190 to 245 yards from terraced tee blocks across a lake to an enormous green. If you are lucky enough to make it over the water in just one stroke then you are probably in for a long putt.
The second, 9 hole, par 27 layout of Riviera Maya Golf Club at Bahia Principe is also enjoyable. With nothing too demanding, it’s a great option for higher digit handicappers or those looking for a quick practice round.
Practice at the range is also included in the green fee as well as anything from the drink carts that circle the course. The Riviera Maya club house boasts 86,000 square feet of luxury amenities and services including a spa, gym, 2 tennis courts, a swimming pool with sun deck, a great restaurant and a fully stocked pro shop.
The Riviera Maya Golf Club at Bahia Principe is located very close to Akumal, Soliman Bay and Tankah Bay. So if you’re in the Akumal area and want to play golf, look no further! Riviera Maya Golf Club at Bahia Principe is your place!
