Golfing in Playacar
Many beautiful golf courses are sprinkled throughout the Riviera Maya, but only one is located right near the heart of Playa del Carmen! Either a short cab ride from your condo (or even a nice little bike ride from XamanHa or Plaza Marina), it’ll satisfy your golfing needs!
The golf course in Playacar is a challenging track that is a good test for all parts of your game. But if you’re like me, it’s just a wonderful course that is very convenient to get to. Plus it’s a chance to enjoy the beautiful landscape and scenery with a few friends…oh, and maybe a refreshing beverage or 3…
It is difficult though, for a resort course. You won’t pull driver that often and you will play a lot of long irons or hybrids. It is a tight and narrow course, but in very good condition.
Hard Rock Golf Club is an all-inclusive golfing experience (which, if you haven’t done yet, is a pretty sweet deal)! Needless to say, the name really says it all. One price and everything is included: green fees, cart, range balls, food, and drink!
They do offer club rentals but it’s not cheap ($50 USD a set). So if you are planning to play on your vacation, it might be worth it to bring your own clubs.
The clubhouse is very nice and contemporary, with a very friendly and helpful staff. They make sure you always have what you need—as opposed to seeing the beverage cart once or twice your entire round. It’s also worth mentioning that breakfast and lunch in the clubhouse are also included.
You are in the Caribbean, so my recommendation would be beat the heat and try and get an early tee time. Although, like most courses, you can save a few bucks with a twilight tee time. That is also an option, just a warmer one!
An excellent golfing experience, Hard Rock Golf Club is also extremely convenient for anyone staying in Playa del Carmen. It’s definitely a great addition to any golfer’s Caribbean beach vacation!
