Took my wife to this course for the executive course and it was awesome. The course is in immaculate shape. Although a little expensive, this was our excusion and well worth it. You get a 50% discount if you are with certain resorts so that made it a lot better, not sure if I'd play here if it was full... More

Lush Course populated with mostly unfriendly "chip-on-their-shoulder" staff who rent substandard golf clubs with sizes that do not match in the bag. Bring your own clubs, and improve your experience. They advertise Callaway, but rent Taylor Made to the tourists. You are better off bringing your own set at $45 for rental rates for mismatched clubs. Otherwise, this venue offers... More

Played the course twice during my vacation at BP Sian Ka'an. Great to be a short walk to the Proshop. This is a long course at 6691 yards from the Blue tees. It does play every yard on the card. Whites are still 6000 yards. While a very fair course, some "local" knowledge is useful as there is lots of... More

Played here a few times and never disappointed. The course is well maintained and difficult, while also being wide open. The 6th is a beautiful hole on top of a cenote and there are more hidden gems on the course. Any level of golfer can manage it, but it is a long one.

I played the Riviera Maya Golf Club course on Tuesday 12/27. I have played many golf courses in the USA and a few in other countries, and this course is as good as any I have played. I booked it thru the resort and had to provide my owe transportation which was a 20 min taxi ride. Rented clubs at... More

The golf course is magnificent. The grass is green and very lush. Bring your "A-game" because the fairways are fast so you roll long! Definitely a must do if you stay at the Bahia Principe Riviera Maya.

I got a chance to wander over to the RTJ III designed track because it was a featured attraction while staying at the Secrets Akumal resort in December 2016. Playing single they slipped me on the first tee at 7:30 a.m. which meant I had the course to myself - the tee sheet was filled until 11 a.m. after that... More

Friendly staff and great experience. The greens and fairways were perfectly groomed and dark green in color. We rented clubs and they were clean and ready for play, they were Calloway. The coarse was spread out but easy to follow. Be ready for narrow jungle lined fairways with some water hazards sprinkled in, plus plenty of sand bunkers to avoid.... More

Excellent course both for the look, challenge and upkeep. We stayed at the GBP and had an offer for residents at 50% - As travelling from the Uk I also hired some clubs and shoes as too lazy. All in just over $100 which wasnt bad for a championship course. Included were the usual refreshments that you'd expect in a... More
