Playa Mujeres Golf Course designed by Greg Norman is one of those rare 18-hole, par 72 golf courses that appeals to everyone. Those who have just got the hang of the game like it because of its wide, forgiving and very well-maintained fairways. Single digit handicappers appreciate its, at times challenging, layout with carefully crafted water holes, undulating Paspalum greens, waste bunkers and five tee boxes to choose from.
Besides the 7,218 yards of picturesque views of the lagoon and the Caribbean, nature lovers will definitely enjoy this golf course’s exuberant flora and diversity of wildlife. In fact, on the 9th fairway you will probably be greeted by “Coco” – the young crocodile living in the pond nearby. Another highlight of the course is, without a doubt, that Isla Mujeres that can be seen along the 16th hole. Just make sure that you don’t add another stroke to your score by letting your attention lapse over the breath-taking scenery around you.
The Playa Mujeres Golf Course is ranked as the first Women Friendly course in Riviera Maya and Mexico by the Executive Women’s Association (EWA). So if the ladies in your party have been thinking about trying golf or improving their game, Playa Mujeres Golf Course may be a great place to do this. There is a Pro shop on site (although you might still want to bring your own clubs and balls). The facilities are wonderful, including a free warm up practice range. And the Lagoon Grill restaurant, overlooking the 18th hole, is definitely a nice “addition” to take advantage of after the game.
Playa Mujeres Golf Course is situated just 20 minutes north of Cancun Hotel Zone on the mainland near Punta Sam. Note that this golf course is not located on Isla Mujeres, as its name may suggest. The name comes from the views of the Island not its location. Playa Mujeres Gofl Club is convenient to downtown Cancun, an easy drive from the Riviera Maya, and has exceptional views as our commentary has pointed out.
