"Nice course, but not the greens"


Age:  65+
Skill:  Intermediate
Plays:  Once a week

Played on 08/02/2017
First time playing Used cart

Reviewed on

Was staying at the secrets resort and they offered free round of play at 2 courses. Cancun CC was the one I chose.

Fairways were nice, but the greens needed some work with the bare spots.

The clubs for renting looked like 10yrs + old or donated from a yard sale. Had to mix & match to get a 52 & 62 degree wedges.

Here is where they get you -

Free round from the resort - $0

But cart fee was $75

Club rental was $40, though they tried to get me to pay $50.

Taxi both ways - $50 (incl tip)

Ran into another couple playing who had the same complaints.

Not worth $115 for a round. Myrtle Beach has much better courses for less.

I brought my own shoes, balls & tees and paid $4 for a small bucket to practice at the range.

When you have never played a course before at a location you are at for the first time, you rely on the reviews to make your decisions. You have to learn how to interpret them. When someone says the traps are too deep and hurt your score, most likely they always have trouble. In the sand. When someone says the tees are too far from the path they are probably older and so on. So thank you to the players who wrote solid reviews about this course. It is challenging and plays fair. The greens were excellent although they just fertilized them which required you to constantly clean your ball, a minor inconvenience. The course is well kept although I would have liked to see more colorful vegetation to add to the ambiance. The traps were not as deep as one of the reviews stated. The sand was soft and excellent texture, no crushed coral or stone to ruin your clubs. They pick you up and take you back to your lodging as a nice courtesy. Bottom line, play it, you'll have a great time.

Never played on a course with such huge bunkers. If you hit wou, you can forget a good score...<br/> Nice scenery with a lot of colorfull birds and other animals.<br/> A cart is included an needed (my GPS said I drove 14 Km for a course of 7Km).<br/> Pitty that the 19th hole was closed. I was directly drive back to my hotel...

I played this course on my birthday with my girlfriend driving the cart for me. It was a very enjoyable day.<br/> The facilities are new and several areas are still under construction. The driving range was some distance from the cart path and the practice green was immature and had not been mowed that day. The ride to the first tee was scenic and enjoyable. Tee areas are well marked and level. This is a long, difficult course no matter what tees you decide to play. I was a little surprised that the fairways were not "perfect" or what I thought a TPC course would be, there is grass but, I did fine some bare spots in the fairway. the bunkers and putting surface was immaculate and the greens rolled true. If you saw a break that's where the putt went. Amazing layout, lots of fun to play.<br/> The staff was great but, for the price I felt the food and drinks should have been included as other courses in this area do.<br/> Overall, a great round at a great course, a few tweaks/improvements and it will be amazing!

My wife had played another course in the area earlier and week and wanted to try something different. Given our previous good experiences with TPC courses we wanted to give this one a try. Overall it was just in rough shape (fairways and tee boxes especially). This is the only course in the Mayan I have played so I don't know if the conditions were typically. I would try another course.

I was disappointed with the condition of the course, the fairways lack grass (very young ), many traps had a visible membrane ( lack of sand ) , and don't be fooled by the beautiful semi island green you see on the drive into the course, that hole is for a future second course..... There was also alot of construction at the time of our visit, the Cancun Country Club is building a huge new clubhouse, it will definitely be majestic when completed. The TPC Cancun to me is not ready or mature enough to request the price demanded. I hope that within the next few years the grass will grow into the fairways and the general condition of the course will improve. I do not recommend TPC Cancun for the price, much better value at other courses ( ex: Riviera )

Do not waste your money! TPC should be embarrassed that they are associated with this course. Greens were beat up and fairways were basically dirt with a little bit of grass. Shocked at the condition!!

The course was in extremely poor shape - minimal grass on the fairways and the greens were covered with holes. Definitely not up to TPC standards and not worth the cost! Would never recommend anyone play there!

TPC Cancun is a course you definitely want to play. It is a very good layout, but needs to grow in more. The fairways are very thin now, and the greens are bumpy. Lots of sand spots on the greens trying to get the grass to fill in. I would give it three or four months, and then book it.

The TPC Cancun was a fun course to play. The course is still new and has a few drainage issues. Fairways wide open on most holes, with greens guarded by sand. Staff was friendly. Will play again on next visit. The course gives and takes for the average golfer.

My first piece of advice would be to take a cab. We stayed in the hotel district and decided to rent a car. We got lost around the airport, asked for directions and soon arrived at the course. As others have mentioned it's a bit obscure, hidden in the back of a new development. The place was empty and we were told to take our time at the range and to tee off whenever we were ready. If you want free drinks and great views of the Caribbean go to one of the resort courses. This course is for serious golfers. It's long, demanding and was in great condition. Accessible fairways for the intermediate golfer, but the length made it a challenge. The greens were fair, but a bit sticky. If you're looking for something beyond the standard resort golf course this is it. I can definitely see it hosting a PGA tournament in the future.

The staff is very proud of what will be here someday soon, and I don't blame them. A spectacular designed course, just not yet matured. Immediately mark yardage at all par three holes. The score card was the only source and was incorrect on all four par threes. The complex is hard to find but will be well worth it once it is completed.
