MAYAKOBA EL CAMALEON GOLF CLUB
“I love the place. The layout is beautiful, the greens are awesome and the course is challenging and fair.”
A Greg Norman design, Mayakoba El Camaleon Golf Club boasts a spectacular layout winding about the tropical jungle and the mangrove before boldly stretching to the sea. Well reputed among golf’s finest players, El Camaleón is the PGA TOUR site for the OHL Classic at Mayakoba, the only official PGA TOUR event held outside the U.S.A. or Canada. Here, golf enthusiasts of all skill levels can experience the essence of a pristine and natural landscape, recognized by the Audubon Society. Like the chameleon from which it takes its name, the course offers up ever-changing challenges and alluring vistas: fairways lined with sand dunes and mangroves, distinctive hazards such as cenotes (subterranean caves), crystal-clear lagoons, and greens perched on the edge of the Caribbean Sea. El Camaleón offers a day filled with exhilarating play.
