The Course

Named “the chameleon” because of its spectacular, ever-changing vistas, Mayakoba’s par-72 championship course made history in 2007 when it hosted Latin America’s first PGA Tour event. The course shows off our spectacular oceanfront landscape, incorporating subterranean cenotes, plenty of bunkers, sand dune-lined fairways, and Mayakoba’s freshwater canals.
