Has anyone recently played golf in Cancun?  Going on vacation next week and wanted to see some course recommendations.

Also some pricing guidelines would be nice.  Everything I see is between $100-300.  TIA!

You might reach out to a WRX'er named appropriately, "Cancun."  He a RO and I'm sure knows his way around.  Have communicated a few times with him via PM and he's always very gracious with his time and information.

FWIW, I played Grand Coral instead of Mayakoba last May because it is WAY wider and much more my style of golf course.

It was also far less expensive.

I had a great time and would absolutely recommend Grand Coral to everyone. It's a damn fine track!

I second Grand Coral....call Glen the Director of golf, great guy, tell him Scott from Woodensticks reco'd his course, he might even give you a better than posted rate :)

Mayakoba - Very expensive, not fantastic, not bad....if you have your winter swing bring a sh*tload of balls.
Iberostar Golf Course - I liked it, nice track, enjoyed it, good mix of holes.
Playacar Golf (Now Hard Rock Golf Course) - Tight, tight and tight.  Not bad, they sometimes have some good deals.  Not sure the pricing since Hard Rock took over.
Moon Palace - Very nice track, very expensive.
Pok-Ta-Pok - Terrible, dont waste your money.

Havent played.
Tinto Golf course...heard its a nice track.
Riviera Cancun - also heard its a decent track....no homes or condos.

I have played two of the three nines at Moon Palace.  We were staying there so it ran me the $80 bucks or something for a club rental.  At the time, you could pay for the rest in resort credits.  Very nice course and would like to go back with the guys on a golf trip.

I second the Moon Palace, nice track, good conditions, reasonable price. Some cool wildlife there too.

When I played Grand Coral a monkey stole my playing partners ball off the green. One of the crazier things I have seen on a golf course.

Couple years ago but...

Moon Palace was great and like $120 per for all inclusive golf. Included, range balls, cart, food and drinks at the turn (a 6 pack, 2 sandwiches and a Bloody Mary) and a drink after the round.

Iberostar was blah, good for seeing alligators and crocs though, saw about 20 on the course.

Mayakoba nice, decent course. Everything there is all about he OHL Classic. Really cool piece of property though not sure worth the price. The Coati are pretty cool.

Riviera Cancun (almost next to Moon Palace) was my favorite round. Really fun open course with a nice mix of holes. Lots of bridges and water that is not always in play. But they warn you to be in the clubhouse 1 hr before sundown because the mosquitos are HORRIBLE.

Mayakoba is one of my favorite courses.
It iis very expensive but it's worth playing at least once.
Great design....but its hard.  Very tight in spots...tons of water.

Iberostar Playa Paraiso is a great track.
Very well maintained for about $100.00.

I played the Iberostar course in Riviera Maya a couple of years ago and really liked it.  Great scenery and views, with lots of cenotes as well.  Great conditions too.  Would have liked to play Mayakoba as well but never made it over there.
