Just all around no hassle fun!

This gem of a course is set off the beaten path but worth the short journey to the coast. The course conditions are excellent and the first time player has no trouble seeing the line to take off the tee. Note the breeze and the ocean views that make this a Mazatlán must-play course. Pro shop and restaurant are excellent. Spend some time post-round taking in the food and hospitality.

Viva la Mexico!

Playing on a holiday (Mexican Independence Day) is great. We were the only players. Restaurant/clubhouse closed so no beers after. They brought beers to us on course during round so awesome. Friendliest staff around. Playing later in the day is recommended because a nice breeze picks up & it’s not so hot. Course is in great shape.

Spectacular Views and Great Course

I played this course while visiting Mazatlan and it was a Friday morning. I was the only one on the course so obviously the pace of play was outstanding. I did join another golfer on the fourth hole. The course was in great condition even though it had been aerated three weeks earlier. The pro shop attendant gave me a discount since the greens were not rolling at their best. That was a major Kudo. I enjoyed this course and don’t know if I enjoyed the golf or the views more. I would highly recommend playing this course if you like To play golf on scenic courses. The only negative is that it is quite a ride from the ocean front strip in Mazatlan. But well worth the effort to get there.

Estrella del Mar

Very nice course and at least in three holes with the ocean as background. Excellent staff only low point is that no caddy is available, maybe because at the end of the round you recognize it wasn’t needed.

Mazatlán golf

Booked for noon. We went to the course at 10:30 and they put us right out to get ahead of a tournament. Very efficient and friendly, Golf course was nice except some of the greens were a little rough.

Beautiful Course,but Pathetic Greens

“Never refunded my Credit Card,Multiple emails from them with excuses.Horrible Beds”
Our trip there was horrible. Got ripped off by the front desk staff on refunding my credit card $200 usd.multiple request to be repaid<even though i have a receipt from edm > showing they owe me $3300 pesos. the manager has promised me a refund that day< but they refuse to give me back my money> pathetic >>> refund was because the beds were hard as rock>had to take cushions off the couches just so we could sleep. No cooking utentsils in the beautiful condo with incredible kitchen we could not use> got put up in a hotel room for last 2 nights>hence a gorgeous golf course location< however no fresh holes cut on the greens in weeks> beat up destroyed holes to putt into> robert trent jones would die that his name is on such a poorly maintained course.. Once again< credit my mastercard< you liars...

Great ocean views

This baby isn't for the timid; an awesome layout with a handful of holes beside the ocean, but beware of small greens. It's said that the management is going to enter a project to make the greens larger, which will really help the mid-handicapper out here. The pros also play this course on the PGA Tour's LatinoAmerica, and even these guys struggle with GIRs (and wind) it's been said. Still, a really engaging play.
