Whether you are a beginner or a seasoned veteran Cancun offers tree lined and shaded fairways, challenging greens, great views of the ocean, Mayan ruins and an array of exotic birds and animals.
You must find your own transportation to the course you wish to play. You can take a taxi. Every taxi driver in town knows every golf course.
It is not recommended to take your own clubs unless you plan on golfing every day. Club rentals are between $30 – $50 USD.
We suggest that you bring golf balls and tee’s…since they’re easy to pack. Bring enough balls because you will more than likely loose a few on these jungle/ocean courses.
