Couldn't play last year due to knee surgery so looked forward to playing this year. I had heard they had ,made sopme improvements. New irrigation system really worked wonders. Greens were in good shape and rolled fairly well. Still have some issues with the bunkers. Where, before, they had no sand, now they have a ton of beach sand but... More

This is the best of the two golf courses to play in Ixtapa. The tee-off boxes are a little ratty but the rest of the golf course is really good

Every year I find they are making improvements and trying to make the course better. The layout is there, they are working on limited operating budget as the course is Gov.owned. The staff do a great job keeping the course maintained and they are always there early when we tee off at first light.

Very good course, very well maintained, professional operation, good pace and a challenge. After playing the run down marina course it was a treat. However it is twice the price. We paid 230 Canadian for two with a cart. We have golfed all over Mexico and this course does not warrant this price. However with no competition I guess they... More

3 years ago we went there (you can see my old review) it was in bad shape but but now the golf course now is in extremely good shape, very fast greens and soft, the crocs are still there, and they some small parrot. more expensive than what I was expected, but you can deal with Julio

The course is in much better condition than advertised, the negative reviews are old and seem to be an issue of expectations. If one is looking for luxury resort golf, this is not it. But it IS affordable and very beautiful, with a challenging layout that is fair and rewards good shots. I took a caddie and would recommend it... More

First tee box was a nightmare! No Marshall, 2 groups allowed to tee off with "Zero" golf experience and 5 groups waiting on the tee for 15 minutes! All's well that ends well and they moved aside as each group approached. Saved the day as in the end it was a good experience! Course is in good shape and has... More

Reasonable challenging course, decent layout, not too busy and a good value at 1,450P for a round. Greens are tough to gauge speed and some in winter shape.

I recently returned from my mid-January Ixtapa vacation. I previously reviewed this RTJ course on TA (for more detailed course description go to that review- True Objectivity of Jan 2012). However, I have played this as well as Marina during all my recent visits. Positives- - This government owned course (Fonatur) has invested heavily in the past few years in... More
