Iberostar Cancun Golf Course

Situated in Cancun's vibrant Hotel Zone, the Iberostar Golf Club Cancun presents a beautiful par 72 championship course sprawling across 150 acres of verdant tropical scenery. Embraced by the captivating Nichupte Lagoon, adorned with mangroves, coconut trees, bunkers, and serene lakes inhabited by a myriad of crocodiles, iguanas, and exotic birds, the course immerses players in a Caribbean paradise, albeit without direct ocean vistas.

Meticulously maintained grounds and generous fairways ensure an idyllic golfing experience suitable for players of all skill levels.

With food and beverages included in the price, and boasting lower green fees compared to other Cancun golf courses, this Iberostar Cancun stands out as a prudent selection for golf enthusiasts.

Expansive Fairways: Despite the presence of abundant water hazards, the fairways here are notably broad. Additionally, most holes on the front nine are aligned in parallel, offering the possibility that an errant slice may find its way onto an adjacent fairway. Such forgiveness sets this golf course apart from its less accommodating local counterparts and makes it a better choice for beginners.

Best / Nearest Hotel:

The Iberostar Cancun Hotel sits just across the main road, offering guests a convenient tunnel straight to the clubhouse. They enjoy discounted rates at the golf course, with the hotel offering enticing 3 and 7-day golf packages, ensuring excellent value for players.

Meanwhile, the newly opened Hyatt Vivid Grand Island boasts a picturesque view of the golf course. Although it's a mere 150 meters from the clubhouse, access requires a 2km detour around the course.

Exciting developments are underway, with the Dreams Grand Island set to open in 2025 right next to the Hyatt Grand Island.

Nestled in the heart of Cancun's Hotel Zone, all hotels in the HZ are no more than 20 minutes away.
