Overview

El Camaleon made golf history in 2007 when it became the home of the OHL Classic at Mayakoba, the first PGA Tour event to ever be contested outside of the United States and Canada. Designed by legendary Australian Golfer Greg Norman, El Camaleon boasts an amazing layout featuring three different ecosystems: tropical Mayan jungle, mangrove forest and the Caribbean Sea coastline.

Played twice and not busy either time. Unsure of hire rates but green fee is $199. Expensive but hell of a track.
