Iberostar Playa Paraiso Golf Club

Playa del Carmen, Quintana Roo | 18 holes | Par: 72 | 6701 yards

Located just south of Cancun between Puerto Morelos and Playa del Carmen, Iberostar Playa Paraiso Golf Club stand outs from the relatively flat landscape that surrounds it. The course has a surprisingly hilly terrain that features dramatic elevation changes, so prepare for uneven lies. The golf course was carefully carved from Mayan jungle, which was kept in tact to provide a treacherous hazard throughout.

Located just south of Cancun between Puerto Morelos and Playa del Carmen, Iberostar Playa Paraiso Golf Club stand outs from the relatively flat landscape that surrounds it. The course has a surprisingly hilly terrain that features dramatic elevation changes, so prepare for uneven lies. The golf course was carefully carved from Mayan jungle, which was kept in tact to provide a treacherous hazard throughout. The layout was designed by P.B. Dye, who incorporated some of his signature features including extreme vertical movement and untraditional hazards like a rock riverbed. With its narrow fairways and undulating greens bordered by deep bunkers, the golf course is considered one of Dye's toughest designs. Warming up on the club's lighted driving range, or putting green would be helpful before tackling this demanding golf course.
