El Camaleon Mayakoba


El Camaleón Golf Course is located 45 minutes south of Cancun in the heart of the mystic Riviera Maya. Just minutes from the dynamic beach destination of Playa del Carmen, El Camaleón is the centerpiece of the luxury resort development of Mayakoba which includes a collection of deluxe hotels: Fairmont Mayakoba, Banyan Tree Mayakoba, Rosewood Mayakoba and a forth one, expected to be opening on 2016: Andaz.


As home of the OHL Classic at Mayakoba, the only official PGA TOUR event in Mexico, El Camaleón is aptly named for its diverse layout and ever-changing landscape, which bends through tropical jungles, dense mangroves and oceanfront stretches of sand with holes bordered by massive limestone canals. The indigenous and environmentally inspired design aspects are evident from the opening fairway, by an imposing cenoté, an ancient underground cavern that was unearthed during the initial stages of course construction. El Camaleón is the only course in the Riviera Maya featuring two holes just steps away from the Caribbean Sea.

Signature Hole

The 15th is the hole that will define the El Camaleón experience. At only 160 yards from the back marker the hole plays directly towards the vibrant waters of the Caribbean Sea. The large green sets the stage for a memorable shot as the nearby waves gently soothe the golfer's soul. Don't be fooled, this hole is not to be taken lightly, especially when the tropical winds pick up. Regardless of your score, the ocean view will remain with the player long after the round.
