Type Resort
El Tinto Golf Club has an environmentally friendly layout that is a popular destination for the PGA Tour. It serves as host to several events throughout the year. When crafting the course, special care was taken to protect the native flora and fauna. As a result El Tinto blends seamlessly into the existing environment. The Nick Price design also utilizes the terrain's natural elevation changes and water features. It's a challenging but fair test with more than 80 strategically placed bunkers and five lakes that come into play throughout. You will encounter some tricky holes but the different sets of tees cater to players of every skill level. El Tinto G.C. is conveniently situated just minutes from all the major area hotels and it's less than a half hour from Playa Del Carmen.

Nice course, but not the greens

Was staying at the secrets resort and they offered free round of play at 2 courses. Cancun CC was the one I chose. Fairways were nice, but the greens needed some work with the bare spots. The clubs for renting looked like 10yrs + old or donated from a yard sale. Had to mix & match to get a 52 & 62 degree wedges. Here is where they get you - Free round from the resort - $0 But cart fee was $75 Club rental was $40, though they tried to get me to pay $50. Taxi both ways - $50 (incl tip) Ran into another couple playing who had the same complaints. Not worth $115 for a round. Myrtle Beach has much better courses for less. I brought my own shoes, balls & tees and paid $4 for a small bucket to practice at the range.

Excellent course reasonable price

When you have never played a course before at a location you are at for the first time, you rely on the reviews to make your decisions. You have to learn how to interpret them. When someone says the traps are too deep and hurt your score, most likely they always have trouble. In the sand. When someone says the tees are too far from the path they are probably older and so on. So thank you to the players who wrote solid reviews about this course. It is challenging and plays fair. The greens were excellent although they just fertilized them which required you to constantly clean your ball, a minor inconvenience. The course is well kept although I would have liked to see more colorful vegetation to add to the ambiance. The traps were not as deep as one of the reviews stated. The sand was soft and excellent texture, no crushed coral or stone to ruin your clubs. They pick you up and take you back to your lodging as a nice courtesy. Bottom line, play it, you'll have a great time.

special experience

Never played on a course with such huge bunkers. If you hit wou, you can forget a good score... Nice scenery with a lot of colorfull birds and other animals. A cart is included an needed (my GPS said I drove 14 Km for a course of 7Km). Pitty that the 19th hole was closed. I was directly drive back to my hotel...

Very challenging, fairways need attention.

I played this course on my birthday with my girlfriend driving the cart for me. It was a very enjoyable day. The facilities are new and several areas are still under construction. The driving range was some distance from the cart path and the practice green was immature and had not been mowed that day. The ride to the first tee was scenic and enjoyable. Tee areas are well marked and level. This is a long, difficult course no matter what tees you decide to play. I was a little surprised that the fairways were not "perfect" or what I thought a TPC course would be, there is grass but, I did fine some bare spots in the fairway. the bunkers and putting surface was immaculate and the greens rolled true. If you saw a break that's where the putt went. Amazing layout, lots of fun to play. The staff was great but, for the price I felt the food and drinks should have been included as other courses in this area do. Overall, a great round at a great course, a few tweaks/improvements and it will be amazing!

A TPC that needs some TLC.

Impressive course layout but suffering from a lack of investment. Facilities are nice but limited. We were the only players on the course all day. Apparently this level of activity at TPC is not unusual.

Not Your Father's TPC Course

My wife had played another course in the area earlier and week and wanted to try something different. Given our previous good experiences with TPC courses we wanted to give this one a try. Overall it was just in rough shape (fairways and tee boxes especially). This is the only course in the Mayan I have played so I don't know if the conditions were typically. I would try another course.

Not up to par - to young

I was disappointed with the condition of the course, the fairways lack grass (very young ), many traps had a visible membrane ( lack of sand ) , and don't be fooled by the beautiful semi island green you see on the drive into the course, that hole is for a future second course..... There was also alot of construction at the time of our visit, the Cancun Country Club is building a huge new clubhouse, it will definitely be majestic when completed. The TPC Cancun to me is not ready or mature enough to request the price demanded. I hope that within the next few years the grass will grow into the fairways and the general condition of the course will improve. I do not recommend TPC Cancun for the price, much better value at other courses ( ex: Riviera )

Terrible Condition

Do not waste your money! TPC should be embarrassed that they are associated with this course. Greens were beat up and fairways were basically dirt with a little bit of grass. Shocked at the condition!!

Not TPC Standard!

The course was in extremely poor shape - minimal grass on the fairways and the greens were covered with holes. Definitely not up to TPC standards and not worth the cost! Would never recommend anyone play there!
