EL CAMALEÓN GOLF COURSE
The 18-hole, Par 72 El Camaleón course was Greg Norman’s first Mexican course design and the first course to ever host an official PGA TOUR event in Mexico.
Opened in 2006, El Camaleon has quickly become one of the most talked-about golf courses in the world. Meaning “The Chameleon,” the course earns its name by weaving through three distinct ecosystems – jungle, dense mangrove, and stunning oceanfront stretches of sand. Add to this the unique limestone canals that interconnect the resort, and you have a course that will be difficult to forget. Designed using Greg Norman’s “least disturbance” approach, the care for the environment is evident from the first hole, where players will navigate over an open cave, called a “cenote” in the middle of the fairway. As well, El Camaleón is certified as an Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary, one of the world’s leading environmental certifications. Audubon’s stringent program includes environmental planning, wildlife, and habitat management, water conservation, chemical use reduction, as well as safety and water quality management.
While each hole shines with its particular magic, it’s the par 3’s that are earning the loudest raves. The 4th and 15th holes play right to the edge of the Caribbean Sea with the sand and the spray punctuating the breeze. 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.
