During a recent trip back to the States, my brother dragged me out on the golf course in Florida. I forgot how great it was to play outdoors in the sunshine and I have to admit that he gave me the bug to get the clubs out again. I dragged myself out of the office and headed out to the El Camaleon Mayakoba. Of course I was a concerned knowing that this is the only PGA Tour course played in Mexico and, being a little rusty in my skills, it could present an interesting challenge.
As I headed out to the starter, I ran into my good friends at Teed Off Tee Times. Cheryl and Kevin were just finishing up a round with the manager of the Fairmont Mayakoba. They tagged along with me for a few holes to gab and give me a little company.
The course is incredible, with long, sweeping runways and the view is breathtaking. Then there are the holes that line the Riviera Maya beach. The sound of the waves and ocean breeze make it a truly amazing experience.
One hole a group of Tejon came running across the tee box and all around you will find different sizes of iguanas checking to make sure you fill your divots.
The result was that I shot a ummm… I must have misplaced the scorecard (haha), but remember only losing 6 balls, which is a major feat for my rusty game. I recommend and encourage this beautiful Playa del Carmen golf course for any guest of Condo Hotels Playa del Carmen.
