Mountains. Ocean. Desert. Rain Forest. Ah, Mexico truly has it all, and when it comes to teeing it up, you truly can’t go wrong at the Top 10 Courses in Mexico listed below. With designs by Nicklaus, Player, Norman, Palmer and a slew of other world-renowned designers, Mexico- from Cabo to Puerto Vallarta to Cancun and all points in between- offers golfers a fiesta for the five senses every single time they tee it up!
Cancun Country Club
  • Cancun, Quintana Roo
  • Designed by Nick Price, Cancun Country Club is a brilliantly routed test that brings golfers around five lakes, 84 strategically placed bunkers and an abundance of native fauna that is best admired from afar. Measuring a stout 7,435 yards from the tips and yetjust over 5,600 from the forward tees, Cancun Country Club has the perfect tee box for golfers of all abilities.
Cabo Real
  • San Jose del Cabo, Baja California Sur
  • Home to several professional tournaments in its storied history, Cabo Real offers golfers a test that’s challenging enough for the pros and yet fully approachable for us average joes. Designed by Robert Trent Jones, Jr., Cabo Real is a target style golf course that gives golfers one simple message over and over again, “Find the fairway off the tee... or else.”
Vidanta Nuevo Vallarta
  • Nuevo Vallarta, Nayarit
  • Home to two fantastic 18-hole tracks, Nayar & Norman, and a great par-3 course, Lakes, Vidanta Nuevo Vallarta is a golfer’s haven that’s sandwiched between the Sierra Madre Mountains and the Pacific Ocean. Vidanta Nuevo Vallarta is truly a dream come true- for it’s not everyday that one can play a great Nicklaus-designed course in the morning in Nayar, enjoy a swim and a nice seaside lunch and play a Norman-designed track in the afternoon!
Riviera Cancun Golf Club
  • Cancun, Quintana Roo
  • Just a short drive from Cancun proper, the beautiful flora and fauna lined fairways of Riviera Cancun Golf Club feel a million miles from the party scene that made this Mexican destination so famous. Riviera Cancun can best be described as “premier tropical golf,” and like other Jack Nicklaus-designed courses, it utilizes natural elements (in this case, the jungle) to set up a variety of risk-reward opportunities throughout its 7,000+ yard layout. And if we can offer some advice… Go For It!
Puerto Cancun Golf Club
  • Cancun, Quintana Roo
  • Puerto Cancun Golf Club opened in 2013 to sterling reviews, and the Tom Weiskoph design continues to stack up accolades as it entertains golfers from all over the world. Featuring endless views of the Carribean Sea, Puerto Cancun Golf Club presents a persistent challenge to all golfers that tee it up there, “Take your eyes off the crystal blue waves and keep them on your golf ball!” And that’s harder than you might think!
Palmilla - Mountain-Ocean
  • San Jose del Cabo, Baja California Sur
  • Featuring three distinct 18-hole loops in Mountain-Ocean, Arroyo-Mountain and Ocean-Arroyo, Palmilla is a Jack Nicklaus designed gem that has kept visitors and residents of the Cabo San Lucas area constantly coming back for more. Golfers giving it a go at Palmilla should start getting excited about scenic views of the Sea of Cortez on nearly every single hole and drastic elevation changes that are certain to keep one guessing just how long each shot plays!
Puerto Los Cabos
  • San Jose del Cabo, Baja California Sur
  • Home to three nine-hole courses (Nicklaus I, Nicklaus II and Norman) that intertwine to set up 18 of the finest holes you’ll ever play, Puerto Los Cabos is taking the Los Cabos golf scene by storm with its unique layout, undulating fairways, scintillating sea views and comfort stations every couple of holes that promise to keep your belly full of tacos and your cart full of cold beverages. Simply put, Puerto Los Cabos checks all the boxes.
TPC Danzante Bay
  • Loreto, Baja California Sur
  • Named Myrtle Beach Golf Course of the Year in 2007, Wachesaw Plantation East Golf Course constantly amazes golfers with its traditional Scottish layout crafted by renowned designer Clyde Johnston. The wide fairways and open alleyways in front of Wachesaw’s large greens transport you to the great links courses in Scotland, but then the sight of stately trees and the soothing feel of a balmy breeze off the coast remind you that you’re in a South Carolinian paradise.
El Camaleon Mayakoba
  • Cancun, Quintana Roo
  • Home to the PGA Tour’s Mayakoba Classic, El Camaleon Mayakoba is a tremendous Greg Norman design that features pristine course conditions and a variety of challenges, like the world-famous “Cave Bunker.” Toss in mesmerizing views of the Carribean Sea and Cozumel Island, and it’s no wonder that El Camaleon Mayakoba gets such rave reviews from pros and average joes alike!
Cabo Del Sol- Ocean Course
  • Cabo San Lucas, Baja California Sur
  • Jack Nicklaus once called the land in which the Cabo del Sol- Ocean Course is routed, “the best piece of golf property I’ve ever seen,” and once you arrive on site at this Cabo San Lucas gem, you’ll immediately deem yourself a believer. Incredible doesn’t even begin to describe this amazing seaside track where minty green fairways jog between rocky mountains before they blend into perfect greens set against the backdrop of the crystal clear waters of the Sea of Cortez.
