Length 7043 yards
Slope 141
Rating 74.8

Situated just minutes from Playa del Carmen, the Grand Coral Riviera Maya snakes through dense Mayan jungle with scenic glimpses of the Caribbean Sea throughout. The designer, Nick Price, laid heavy emphasis on having the most minimal environmental impact as possible while still providing a fair and challenging round. He even employed a team of biologists and environmental consultants to determine how to minimize water consumption and protect the native wildlife. Price carefully preserved and incorporated the native vegetation into the golf course so that it blends seamlessly into the beautiful surroundings. The dense jungle comes into play along the fairways, requiring some accuracy to maneuver or else you'll surely lose a ball. Water hazards come into play on several holes and there are also strategically placed bunkers lurking near the greens.

Always the best

Always wanted to golf in Mexico..... then I found the Grand Coral. Value for the money is great, the staff is so friendly and helpful, and the equipment is great quality. (I rented clubs). This is only my second time here but the course seemed in even better condition and best yet is that I found a great deal on GolfNow!

Wow!!!

Played this course 3 times in 5 days. Fairways are pretty generous and the greens were fantastic.!! Staff were very friendly and helpful. Special shout out to Glenn Doyle, director of golf, for giving me a break on the cost of my second and third rounds. Highly recommend this course and will be sure to go back next time I am back in Playa del Carmen.

Nice Surprise

Heard mixed review but it seems they have made a concerted effort to get this track into excellent condition. Staff was best we’ve met and n Playa. Played for $100 hours n my opinion much better value than Hard Rock. Carts can be an issue in Mexico but these were excellent, ice and water in cooler.

Great plyable Golf Course

Greens were perfect, staff friendly, perfect job in sand traps, just the good amount of sand with a good base. Practice facility would need some range numbers. Book through TeeOff App and got a great rate....a 300$ day for 81$ !!!! Played at 12:30

Unexpected gem

I was very surprised on the course and layout. Each hole had cool features and challenges. The tips would be really tough! Greens have subtle breaks so you have to commit to your line. Close to Playa Del Carmon. Play then head into town for food and shops.

Very player friendly

I found the course to be very player friendly. Fairly wide open and straight forward. I did manage to find a bunch of bunkers today, but they were all in great shape. We found a deal online and this place was week worth what we paid. The staff is top notch, from the starter to the beverage cart, and even the ranger were all super friendly and attentive. My only complaint was that the greens were some what inconsistent, as a few greens had some thin areas. I think that in a week or two they should be in great shape.

Great final round.

Decided at the last minute to play Grand Coral again (3rd time) before heading home from vacation.
Course was in good shape and we moved along pretty well.
Broke 80 for 2nd time on the trip and we got to see a gator/croc as well as the monkeys making an appearance on the 18th green. Great ending to a wonderful vacation!

Enjoyable round

Despite a couple rain delays and eventually being washed out by downpours after a fantastic drive on the 18th, we still enjoyed the round. Course was in good shape despite the rain. Beats shovelling snow!

Better Option

This course is not a bad track by any stretch of the imagination, there are just better options in the area. Sections of fairways and greens are burnt out and to me that is not acceptable in a tropical climate. Bunkers were in good shape as well as the tee boxes. If you like to golf and don't mind spending a little extra there are much better options. Mayakoba and Riviera Cancun to start.
