Hi all,

 

I'm getting married in the Riviera Maya (prob Azul Sensatori) and was looking for some recommendations on golf courses for the guys. Has anyone done the research on local area courses, prices, etc? If so, I would greatly appreciate hearing about it.

 

Thanks so much!

Jen

I'm hoping to get married there next year as well. I am leaning towards Fairmont Mayakoba and one of the reasons is because of the golf course there. It's georgous. The only thing is, I'm pretty sure that it's more expensive for people who aren't guests at the hotel.

My DH and his buds went to Puerto Aventuras Golf Course. It's a 9 hole course you have to play twice to get in the 18 holes. It was a total of $86 pp and you can play all day for that price. My DH wanted to play another course but they are all sooo much more expensive and he didn't want to ask his buds to pay another $170 on top of the vacation cost.

 

FYI, my brother stayed at the Fairmont over the summer and played the course. He said it was amazing. If you can afford it...go for it!

Thanks for the replies! The Mayakoba is georgeous, just so expensive ($230 plus $55 for rental clubs). Slightly more affordable are the Iberostar Playa Paraiso Golf Club and the Playacar Golf Club (closer to $190 and including drinks and food on and off the course, plus $35 for clubs). My fiance was thinking of making this his gift to the guys in the wedding party (and letting others decide if they want to play), but we're not sure if this is an okay gift. Thoughts?

Here are a few of the courses that we found when researching and the little write up that we are putting with them in our welcome booklets. Do not quote me on the prices as I am not 100% sure on them.

 

Iberostar Paraiso Golf Club, 18 hole, par 72

The Iberostar Paraiso Golf Club was designed by one of the Caribbean's most prolific golf course designers, P.B. Dye. It was designated “Best of the Best†by Robb Report in 2006. It is one of the newest courses in the Riviera Maya, opening to the public in 2005.

GREEN FEE (including cart, food, and beverages) 190.00 USD

 

The Golf Club at Moon Palace, 18 hole, par 72

Jack Nicklaus has put his signature on the Cancun-Riviera Maya golf landscape with The Club at Moon Palace.

GREEN FEE (including cart, food and beverages) 260.00 USD

TWILIGHT (including cart, food and beverages) 165.00 USD

 

Puerto Aventuras Golf Course, 9 hole, par 36

The PA Golf course is an exciting and challenging course. This beautiful 36 par jungle golf course was designed in 1991 by Thomas Leman and is still one of the best kept secrets in the area. The fairways and greens are covered by a smooth carpet of Bermuda grass and surrounded by Palm trees, bugambilias, tropical ficus and lush foliage.

Green fee (18 holes) $80

Equipment rentals $20

 

Hope this helps!

    • It’s been years... and I’m now searching for the same in Montego Bay or Negril. Did anyone ever have any luck finding? 
    • Hello, I'm new to this site. I got engaged already and get married by next year. I have some doubts regarding our dating destination. Hope you will help me. Thank You!
    • Hello everyone,
      Well, this upcoming valentine's day is special for me because I got engaged and planning to spend the day with my fiance. I'm planning to give her an ethical jumpsuit.

      Other than that I have been searching the internet for some nice discounted coupons and searched among my friends and found different sites. Now, we are looking forward to that wonderful day. We searched a lot and found out, Escape The City. Orangeville is a great place for a day trip or weekend gateway from Toronto.
      Theatre Orangeville is offering a weekend package that includes 2 tickets to a Live performance at the theatre, Premium Overnight Accommodations at Best Western Plus Orangeville Inn and Suites and $75 Downtown Wine and Dine Voucher which is valid at select Downtown restaurants, and Free Entry to the scenic Trails & Bridges of Island Lake.

      We are so excited and eagerly waiting for that day.
      If anyone has got any other suggestions for the venue, kindly share your thoughts/ideas.
      Thank You!
       
    • Please tell me, the best wedding venue in Saskatoon, SK.
    • Hey everyone! Like the others here, I'm interested in wedding reception, venue and all related steps & stuff. Starting with my first and the most important note is that we're international couple and we need to think of bilingual wedding. So the first thing we need to think of is whether it will be interpretation or 2 different venue coordinators, sermons and stuff? What is your experience, what could be the best and affordable solution? From googling the issue I've found this Interactio app team ( describing possible solution here  http://blog.interactio.io/case-study-weddings )Basically they offer to hold the venue in the main language, additionally providing simultaneous interpretation online to other quest's mobile phones. Looks like really easy and creative idea. What about the others? How did you solve this kind of obstacle? Any additional advises would be very welcomed here
