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

Great value and the course was in great shape and awesomely manicured has a few challenging holes and the views and scenery are beautiful one recommendation is to make sure to bring a few extra balls if you miss hit a shot its pretty thick in the jungle, if your gonna be at the resort and play golf you must...

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

This is by far in my top 3 favorite golf courses, the fairways are pristine, the greens unbelievable conditions, this is not an easy course it requires straight game and really good putting skills but the par 3's, men those alone are worth the game, it's hot so start early, the golf carts have GPS of great quality, the predict...

We opted to play nine holes only as we had Akron in the option of a cheaper rate after 1pm. It is mandatory to have a cart which has a great digital course map and course info playing on the screen. If you only want to play nine holes they will send you on the par 3 course otherwise they... More

Lovely course. I'm new to golf so my first full course. Hired the clubs. A little on the costly side. Play includes cart but not refreshments. Played 18 holes but given the heat would recommend the back 9 in August. There were lots of mosquito which the staff told us (after we finished) that many people don't play at this... More
