Played this course March 21st, 2017. Booked this course with a senior (family member), and played at 8am, in the hopes of avoiding the heat of mid-day. Wasn't planning to play a round, but there is only so much pool/beach/buffeting you can do ;) We were staying at the Bahia Principe Coba and booked through the Public Relations desk at... More

I've played it twice and am booked for tomorrow. It is a very well designed track. Starting you off with easy holes and progressively becoming more difficult. Back nine steps it up with more water coming into play. I lost two balls each round to water. There is a decent practise range, putting green and chipping area with bunkers. My... More

I've played all 27 holes at the Rivera Maya Golf Course - both, the 18 hole championship course, as well as the 9 hole Par 3. Bothe courses are very challenging - I've donated a significant number of balls to the jungle and water hazards... The scenery is fabulous - one hole that really stood out was the Par 4,... More

My son and I golfed the par 3 on a sunny morning in March. Course was a challenge for me as I am only a beginner. Some holes over the water grabbed a few balls. We were the only players at 8 am and did not require a reservation. Wonderful experience. We will go again tomorrow.

Took my wife to this course for the executive course and it was awesome. The course is in immaculate shape. Although a little expensive, this was our excusion and well worth it. You get a 50% discount if you are with certain resorts so that made it a lot better, not sure if I'd play here if it was full... More

Lush Course populated with mostly unfriendly "chip-on-their-shoulder" staff who rent substandard golf clubs with sizes that do not match in the bag. Bring your own clubs, and improve your experience. They advertise Callaway, but rent Taylor Made to the tourists. You are better off bringing your own set at $45 for rental rates for mismatched clubs. Otherwise, this venue offers... More

Played the course twice during my vacation at BP Sian Ka'an. Great to be a short walk to the Proshop. This is a long course at 6691 yards from the Blue tees. It does play every yard on the card. Whites are still 6000 yards. While a very fair course, some "local" knowledge is useful as there is lots of... More

Played here a few times and never disappointed. The course is well maintained and difficult, while also being wide open. The 6th is a beautiful hole on top of a cenote and there are more hidden gems on the course. Any level of golfer can manage it, but it is a long one.

I played the Riviera Maya Golf Club course on Tuesday 12/27. I have played many golf courses in the USA and a few in other countries, and this course is as good as any I have played. I booked it thru the resort and had to provide my owe transportation which was a 20 min taxi ride. Rented clubs at... More

The golf course is magnificent. The grass is green and very lush. Bring your "A-game" because the fairways are fast so you roll long! Definitely a must do if you stay at the Bahia Principe Riviera Maya.
