For 42 years, El Cid Golf & Country Club has provided an exceptional golf experience in the heart of Mazatlan’s Golden Zone. Our 27-hole, PGA-rated championship course has hosted the prestigious Mexico Professional Tour, Canadian Tour and Mexico Golf Federation for Children & Youth, multiple times. The original course features 18 holes, followed by the Marina 9, developed by Lee Treviño in 1999 and described by Golf Today as “an absolute winner”.
El Cid Golf & Country Club has been described as one of the most remarkable courses along the Pacific Coast of Mexico. It has generous Bermuda grass greens with fairways framed by majestic palms, pinon, rubber and capiros trees with abundant bird life, turtles and iguanas. Multiple holes play directly along or over water on this beautiful, diverse course, which presents challenges to golfers of all skill levels.
The Moro nine is the perfect balance of challenge and beauty. Two of its performance inspiring holes – #7 and #8 – are the most demanding in Mazatlán and are played in succession. Embraced by inspiring scenic views alongside tall, majestic palms, this beautiful nine has an atmosphere that will challenge the long hitter and reward the consistent one.
The 8th hole is known as “The Monster”. As a very entertaining 611 yard par-5, it qualifies as one of El Cid’s best holes every year during the Pro Tour stop.
