Type Resort
Iberostar Cancun Golf Club sits along the beautiful Nichupte Lagoon, with it and many of its inlets bordering most of the holes. The championship course sprawls across a scenic landscape accented with tropical vegetation that is also home to a variety of wildlife. Golfers shouldn't be surprised to see colorful birds, iguanas or even a crocodile. Water naturally comes into play throughout the golf course but there are also strategically placed bunkers to contend with. The Mayan ruins of El Rey, which date back to 500 AD, provide unique scenery on the 16th hole. The course offers a fair test that is not too intimidating for beginners but challenging enough for more seasoned players. In addition to the golf course, Iberostar Cancun also has a 25-yard practice course, a driving range, and a putting green.

Great course in Paradise!

Stayed at another resort close to Iberostar Cancun and was able to get a small deal with club rentals (Ping G20). I was the first tee time at 7AM and finished my round in 2 hours, 20 minutes. Shot an 83 for my first outing of the season!

All food and drinks (on and off the course) were included with round. It was a little windy that morning, but the course played superbly! Would definitely recommend this course!

Great course, nice layout, good for all levels

I play here every year in January, 4-7 times. The staff is great, shout out to Luis and Miguel! Food and drink is included on the course and in the restaurant. There aren’t a lot of courses in Cancún, but this is reasonably priced and a good warm up course.

Overall good course with a great staff and amenities!

Only problem were that greens were being aerated and the course and greens were very wet. Mud on the ball with almost every shot. The fairways were also being aerated, so we played lift, clean and place! A course map would have helped as well!

Iberostar cancun

Very nice and beautiful course. Pro shop staff was very friendly and professional. No problems getting reservation confirmed and started. When I arrived, they took my clubs from my taxi. Course was nearly empty. Rain occurred for a couple of holes. Wide fairways and fast greens. Crocodile warnings at several holes. They were a non-issue. Overall great course. Not too mention included was all inclusive alcohol, water, and food. Great experience. ..

It's worth it!!

I have played Iberostar twice, Pok ta Pok once, you definitely get what you pay for at Iberostar. Both have a great staff and a great course but the iberostar is all inclusive, Dirnks, food, and last time I played one of the wardens brought me extra balls from the pro-shop. I lost a couple in the alligator nest, don't chase those balls.

GREAT EXPERIENCE and GREAT VALUE

I booked this course based on location convenience. I was so pleasantly surprised! Initially the cost seemed a bit high, but after playing one day, we enjoyed it so much and thought it was such a great value, we booked it again and played there the next day, too. The staff -- every one of them - was so friendly and helpful. Our rental clubs were all new Cobras -- so much fun to play with. The food/drink were plentiful and excellent. Course is in great condition and challenging enough, but not overwhelming. If I return to Cancun in the future, I would definitely play here again.

Had a great time.

Course isn't too difficult. Sand is powdery and easy to hit long irons out of, don't be afraid of the sand.

There's a 180 yard par 3 with water in front. Use a cheap ball on that hole lol.

Overall pretty awesome. Brought sandwiches to us. Plenty of beer and water or shots of Tequila.

Shot 91 but I was pretty buzzed.

Solid 7.5/10

Solid golf course, no frills. Best option is to do a replay and cost average down to about $67 per round ($99 + $35 replay). Staff (Miguel the starter & Rosember the cart guy) extremely nice and helpful. Be aware of your surroundings, there are crocodiles in the water so take a free drop away from the water's edge at least 15 feet.

Value laden and Rosember is a treat

At $99or $109 us it's a great deal. If u book through your hotel concierge you can get the 99 rate and get transportation included. This is on top of: hot/ cold breakfast, all items from snack cart( yes to cervezas) and lunch

Course, IMO, is a 6.5/7 out of 10 in terms of challenge as it is not overly long. However, this is suitable for resort clientele. There is a Lot of water along w crocodiles, so beware.

Best part of the round is morning host and cart guy Rosember. He is funny, respectful and always a great treat to see.

Enjoy your round

Nice course, but.....

Squeaking out for a round turned to be very costly. The round itself on Golf Now was a little on the high side ($109USD), however still a $40USD savings over booking through the hotel concierge or directly with the course. Much to my chagrin, the club rentals were NOT part of the ALL INCLUSIVE that they advertise, but rather another $55USD each. This more than slightly soured my day. Overall, it was a nice day out and friendly staff all around. At least the clubs were of decent quality.

Iberostar is a star

I'm amazed that more people in the hotel zone don't play golf here. It's convenient and a great value. I've been playing it for over 10 years and love it. The starter runs a tight group of energetic and helpful staff.

My only recommendations are that they should cut the fairways and green a little shorter. Not to say they aren't nice and medium speed greens, but it would be a 5 star course with smooth fast greens and a tighter fairway. I assume they don't to avoid watering more frequently including during the day when the course is in play.

Nice all inclusive course

They do a fantastic job maintaing greens and rough areas. Often windy which adds a slight challenge but overall course is wide open. Food was good and service was fine for a golf course.
