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...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......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...More

How much is it to play and hire clubs

I went on the golf club website and they list the golfing prices, but I don't see any golf cart prices. Does that mean that the cart rental prices are included in the golfing? Or are they extra? If so, how much?
