An 18-hole, (Jack Nicklaus and Jack Nicklaus II co-design) championship course is situated on one of the most unique geographical locations in Mexico. The site consists of a 2 mile peninsula with a tidal estuary on one side, the Sea of Cortés on the other, and an inlet to the south. A challenging 7,210 yard, 18 hole, par 72 sand dune course is a work of art surrounded by incomparable natural beauty hosting a wealth of flora and fauna. 9 ocean side holes make this course a Golfing experience beyond anyone’s expectations.
From the deck at the club house you overlook the shimmering emerald green of the paspallum grass contrasting with the desert sand, accentuated by the bright turquoise blue of the estuary, and the pastel pink mountains in the background, it is a painter’s dream!
This is just a hint of what you will see on the course. Hole # 3 is the Nicklaus signature hole and will keep you guessing from tee to green. A blind shot off the tee box plays slightly uphill guarding the visual delight you will receive as you approach your ball for he second shot.
Bring your A-game and keep the ball in play as the seaside foliage will grab your ball and hide it from you. Excellent greens and a challenging layout make this a fun course for low handicap players.
Green Fees $120.00 USD with special rates for Mayan Palace members.

The Links at Las Palomas Golf Club
Close to town on Sandy Beach this course offers great views.
The Links at Las Palomas is one of the first courses ever planted with a new variety of grass called Sea Dwaft Paspalum.

It creates fast fairways and slick putting surfaces, two qualities that go hand-in-hand to create a true links experience. The lure of any golf course should be how often the golfer wants to return. A great course must be played time and time again to be conquered. The Links at Las Palomas draws every golfer into this challenge, mystifying and rewarding players of all skill levels with each new round. The course can be attacked from the very back tees — at nearly 7,000-yards — or from members tee markers, club tees or forward tees. This special course provides members and guests a layout they will never tire of playing.
