Over the last few years, entrepreneurs and visionaries have noticed that Quintana Roo was more than paradise beaches and lush jungles: it is also the ideal place to build world-class golf courses. That’s how the entrepreneurs decided to make the Riviera Maya a favorite destination for golf lovers.
Today, 15 of the 200 fields registered in Mexico are built along the 120 kilometers of coastline between Puerto Morelos and Tulum, such as El Tinto Golf Course Cancun or Playa Mujeres Golf Club. This is not a coincidence since the region meets all the physical conditions required to build a golf course.
The Riviera Maya has become a luxury golf destination thanks to the fact that some of the most important courses have been designed by some of the most emblematic figures of golf, such as Jack Nicklaus, who designed the Cozumel Country golf course Club, or Nick Price, creator of Grand Coral Golf Riviera Maya.
For his part, Greg Norman premiered with his first design in Mexico at the golf course Camaleón Mayakoba.
For some years, Quintana Roo has become one of the preferred destinations of international golf by the OHL Classic at Mayakoba, a tournament that has also made history as the first PGA Tour tournament played outside of the United States and Canada. Celebrated for a little more than a decade at El Camaleón Golf Club. This year the OHL Classic will be from November 5 to 11.
In recent years, the Mexican Caribbean has become a golf paradise, the increasing investments of golf infrastructure are made with the purpose of contributing to sustainability in an area with economic progress as well as natural wealth.
