Mayakoba Golf Course

MAYAKOBA, which means “city on water” in the Mayan language, features six miles of crystal-clear freshwater canals that connects Greg Norman´s masterpiece El Camaleon Golf Course to 4 luxurious hotels – Fairmont, Banyan Tree, Rosewood, Andaz – and private Residences. Mayakoba Hotel Guests and Residential Home owners enjoy preferential rates at El Camaleon. Fronting the second largest coral reef in the world, Mayakoba Eco-Friendly Resort is Rain Forest Alliance Verified, Audubon International Certified and has won the UNWTO Ulysses Prize for its commitment to the environment. An upscale locale on the Caribbean beachfront, the resort is surrounded by tranquil lagoons and lush vegetation with nature trails winding throughout. Our 214 guestrooms and suites are naturally inspired with breezy, open layouts flooded with natural light and featuring refined artisan décor. Local artworks adorn the walls, and decorative tiles outfit the floors.
Designed by legendary Australian golfer Greg Norman and inaugurated in 2006, El Camaleon Golf Course made golf history in 2007 when it became the home of the OHL CLASSIC at Mayakoba, the first PGA Tour event to be contested outside the US and Canada. Like the chameleon, from which it takes its name, the course offers constantly changing views as it winds through three diverse ecosystems: the tropical Mayan jungle, mangrove wetlands and the Mexican Caribbean Sea coastline. Distinctive hazards such as cenotes (sinkholes), extensive bunkers and crystal-clear fresh water canals are unique features of El Camaleon, certified by Audubon International for its commitment to the environment.
