Moon Spa and Golf Club is one of the few signature courses in Riviera Maya built by Jack Nicklaus. It is conveniently located just 10 minutes south of the Cancun International Airport. "The most common mistake in fairway wedge play is trying to hit shots too hard. When you take the wedge from your bag, remember that with this club the ball should be caressed, not assaulted." - Jack Nicklaus
Seemingly simple, this 7,165 yard, par-72, course will give you plenty of opportunities to hone your golfing skills (even if you are a single digit handicapper). Designed with environmental conservation as its primary focus, the layout winds through the native Yucatan mangroves, jungle, numerous natural wetlands, and strategically placed sand bunkers.
Another ‘feature’ that makes this 27-hole golf course stand out is that it offers 3 entirely different teeing options: Dunes-Jungle, Jungle-Lakes and Lakes-Dunes (the dunes course being the most difficult). If you are up for a challenge, try hole No.17. It’s a 141-yard par-3 that plays to an island green. It literally leaves you no place to bail out. It’s either on the green or in the drink.
Following the resort tradition, Moon Spa and Golf Club offers an all-inclusive system, which means that you can enjoy unlimited food and beverages both at the club house and along the course. Additional services include the Pro Shop, practice range, private golf lessons, two great restaurants as well as a full service Spa and beauty salon. So if your friends and family members don’t share your passion for golf, they will still find plenty of ways to pass their time while you are practicing your chipping, pitching, and bunker play.
