Golfing in Riviera Maya
The unique limestone canals that interconnect the resort to a golf course are unforgettable. Designed using Greg Norman's "least disturbance" approach, the care for the environment is evident from the first hole, where golfers will navigate over an open cave, called a "cenote" in the middle of the fairway.
While each hole shines with its own particular magic, it's the par 3s that already are earning the loudest raves. The 7th and 15th holes play right to the edge of the Caribbean Sea with the sand and the spray punctuating the breeze. In the distance is one of the world's largest coral reefs and the island of Cozumel. The 10th is another short hole that is long on memories. The figure eight green is lined with drama. A shot too long or to the right drops deep into the crystal waters of the canal.
El Camaleón Golf Club, Banyan Tree Mayakoba
Opened in 2006, the El Camaleón Golf Club, Mayakoba has quickly become one of the most talked about golf courses in Riviera Maya, Mexico. Meaning "The Chameleon", the golf course earns its name by weaving through three distinct ecosystems - jungle, dense mangrove and stunning, oceanfront stretches of sand.
The El Camaleón golf course is Greg Norman's first Mexican course design and the first course to ever host the PGA TOUR in Mexico, annually hosting the Mayakoba Golf Classic, Riviera Maya - Cancun every February. As well, the El Camaleón Golf Club hosts the second golf course in Mexico to be certified as an Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary, one of the world's leading environmental certifications.
