PGA Riviera Maya
Situated in the north-eastern region of Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula and on the Caribbean coast, PGA Riviera Maya Golf Club forms part of a community of four world-class residential and real estate resorts, and marks the first PGA of America facility in Latin America, as the Association continues to support the growth of golf outside of the United States.
Designed by Robert Trent Jones II, PGA Riviera Maya comprises an 18-hole, par 72 layout as well as a nine-hole, par 27 executive course — 1,265 yards in length — which is ideal for beginners, or those seeking to hone their skills before venturing out onto the 7,272 yard main championship course.
Open since 2010, the course is carved from a limestone quarry, winding its way through the lush Mayan jungle, and is dotted with natural lakes and cenotes (large sinkholes or caves). The 27 holes were cut deep into a limestone quarry so that their fairways emerged from the natural contours of a dense jungle combined with mangroves ensuring that the natural wonders of the area were incorporated into the design of the course.
