A Cancun Golf Trip Itinerary - By reader request
Are there any sure bets in Cancun golf? The spring break paradise can be a golfer’s torment with good courses and duds all disguised under the same high-end greens fees.
Reader Tommy wrote in “I’m a 8 handicap and really looking forward to this (Cancun) vacation. Any suggestions?”
Any suggestions? Shockingly, I just might have an opinion or two. Playa Paraiso Golf Club, the new P.B. Dye linked with the Iberostar Resort Complex, is the best course I played in a week there. The latest Jack Nicklaus nine at Moon Palace, the Dunes Course is a visual, shotmaking treat.
Play the Dunes nine with either the Jungle or Lakes nine. It doesn’t really matter which, they’re both equally solid and unspectacular. You probably won’t remember either. Just make sure you get the Dunes as part of your 18.
Playacar Golf Club is a good bet for the chance to see some actual jungle wildlife. Think big exotic lizards, not Cheetahs. This is Cancun.
On the other end of the spectrum, avoid the Cancun Golf Club at Pok Ta Pok. Don’t be fooled by its Robert Trent Jones design status. This is a course that needs a maintenance makeover. The Hilton Cancun Golf Resort is also vastly overpriced for what it provides - a rather ordinary resort track with plenty of worn patches.
More reader questions are always encouraged. You’re what make the sites work after all. We’re always looking to serve. That applies to even the Michelle Wie no-wins-equals-greatness delusionals.
Why do you think Jennifer Mario is blogging away? Why do you think Tim McDonald is suddenly pandering to the Wie Warriors like Supreme Court nominee Harriet Miers reaching out to convince the GOP evangelicals that she’s not only Republican, but a little crazy too?

NOTE: Pok Ta Pok is the biggest "Goat Ranch" I ever played on, not to mention that is the most overpriced "Goat Ranch"
