El Camaleon Golf Club is a regular host of the PGA Tour's Classic at Mayakoba, first won by Fred Funk in 2007 and most recently by Viktor Hovland in 2020.
Sand dunes and crystal clear lagoons are among the delightful features that contribute to an awe-inspiring backdrop. Unique and intelligent design has helped the El Camaleon Golf Club maximise its impact, allowing visiting golfers to experience the natural landscape to the full. As the warm waters of the Caribbean lap against the picture perfect beaches at Playa Del Carmen, it is difficult to imagine anywhere more beautiful to enjoy a game of golf.
This is the essence of Mayakoba - a magical combination of tranquility and serenity, where championship golf comes wrapped in the most enchanting Caribbean package.

What the pros say:
"My first time at Mayakoba. It's such a great
tournament. Had a great time this week. Stayed down in Playa. Had some great
beach time. Had some good golf course time." – Harris English
“There's not one negative thing you could say about it. The
golf course is fantastic, which is the No. 1 selling point that the players
want to know about. They want to know, what kind of golf course it is, and I
thought it's a great Greg Norman design. He did a great job here. Very unique
to what I've ever played with the mangroves off to the sides of the hole. It's
really demanding. As long as you're in the green, you're okay. If you're not in
the green stuff, you're in serious trouble. The grass here with the Paspalum, a
lot of people were asking about that, and very wonderful surface to play golf
off of. The greens and the fairways and the tees are fantastic, and you don't
want to be in the rough. It gets a little tough in there.” – Fred Funk
