Riviera Maya's Premier Golf Courses: A Paradise for Golfers and Residents


The Riviera Maya is a beautiful stretch of Caribbean coastline on Mexico's Yucatán Peninsula, South of Cancun, with surprising archeological and cultural towns in the interior, as well as on the Caribbean Sea. The region is not only a haven for beach lovers, but also a golfing paradise. Cancun offers luxury beach resorts, and the region’s excellent golf courses are geared mainly to visitors. The Riviera Maya coast (from Puerto Morales to Tulum) has developed a bit differently. Golf Courses are part of planned residential gated communities. Lush landscapes and balmy weather provide the perfect backdrop for some of the world's most beautiful golf courses, and these courses are closely linked to some exceptional properties and real estate opportunities that combine luxury living with a love of the game.

In this blog, we'll begin to explore this linkage. Experienced golfers, those new to the game, and non-players are all looking at investing in the unique Riviera Maya environment. Imagine living in a tropical environment where green fairways, championship golf challenges, pristine natural jungle or parklike surroundings meet crystal clear waters These golf courses are not just venues for the sport; they are gateways to a lifestyle where luxury, nature and a passion for golf come together. Many courses are located within or adjacent to residential communities that offer everything from cosy condos, houses next to fairways, or sprawling beachfront villas. Investing in property here means becoming part of a vibrant community with a shared love of leisure and elegance. Almost all courses have been designed by a legendary golf player and architect, and so the region's stunning natural beauty is combined with luxurious amenities and signature communities.

Here's a look at several well-known courses and related communities.  As a local real estate agent I have seen the communities and know them well. I want to help you navigate the lush landscapes and luxurious living options available in this golfer's paradise.  Links to detailed golf course / club information are included. As time goes on I will add information about other courses and upcoming residential developments. Stay tuned!
