We have been playing this course for nearly 15 years now and someday will beat it. It is tough with narrow fairways, rough the grabs your club, elevated greens, water and bunkers. Oh yes, the occasional big tree on the side of a fairway where you most don't want it and the constant wind blowing in on numbers 9 and... More

They've tried to jam too many holes on the property resulting in many dog leg holes. Most fairways have thick foliage along them resulting in many lost balls, so bring lots. Greens were all being treated and were somewhat hard and sandy. No short par 3's and most fairways and many greens are narrow. Excellent scenery but not worth the... More

We winter in Playacar and have been golfing at this course for about 5 years. Since Hard Rock has taken over, I am sorry to say it has gone down hill. Although still a beautiful course, it is not as well maintained as it used to be. Lots of sand has been added to the tee boxes. Also they have... More

I joined this club as a Family Membership in Sept 2016 for a cost over $5000 US. They aerated the greens shortly after we joined and treated them with sand which they have done 4 times since. There is no new growth of grass, no seeding, no application of soil, no fertilizer. The greens are hard as rock and do... More

Narrow fairways, very small greens and a lot of green side bunkers. The course was not in its best condition. Service and staff were very good.

The people behind front desk are very unfriendly. And at the course restaurant, it took nearly 45 min for TWO hotdogs.

We come every year and play golf here frequently. Over the last couple of months it is going from worst to extremely catastrophic... Never thought that was possible, but yes, for some unknown reason they fired the pro- Adan who was always on site, available and just wanted to make all players feel welcome. Now he is replaced by a... More

To start the day of golf I will agree with many other reviewers about the rude front desk staff. Extremely slow and unhelpful. Pro shop has lots of Hard Rock Cafe t-shirts but very limited and expensive golf gear. Balls and gloves are outrageously priced. On to the snack bar, wonderful breakfast and friendly staff. Out to the course and... More

We had a great days golf. Played first tee of time to avoid the heat and to get around our jet lag. Welcomed with all inclusive breakfast and drinks. Out onto the course with a choice of great clubs and off on our way via the driving range. On the course there was plenty of wildlife. Occasionally having to give... More
