OHL Golf Classic
The only PGA event held in Mexico is hosted right here in the Yucatan Peninsula and just outside of Playa del Carmen, on the pristine grounds of the El Camaleόn golf course.
If you want to enjoy stunning scenery along with world class golf during your Caribbean vacation—or even as a reason to take a Caribbean vacation—the OHL Classic is the place to be!
The reigning champion, Graeme McDowell, along with many other PGA winners and major champions are signed up to play this year’s tournament. Players such as Bubba Watson, Jim Furyk, Angel Cabrera, Luke Donald, and Ernie Els amongst many others will be playing November 10-13 at the OHL.
General Admission tickets cost $6 USD. And yes, that is not a typo, $6 USD is all it costs to get in for any day of the event! There are also other packages that can be purchased. For $50 USD you can overlook the action from a few elevated hospitality tents while enjoying unlimited beer (Heineken) and soft drinks along with a few light appetizers.
You will be hard pressed to find a cheaper and more intimate golf experience. Often you may be the only spectator on any number of holes. With that being said, it’s still a PGA event. It’s very professionally designed which makes it very enjoyable to be a part of, with grandstands strategically set up throughout the course.
Take a day or two and enjoy the beauty of Mexico along with its only PGA Tour event, the OHL Classic at Mayakoba.
