Its varied design - from the jungle to the mangroves and from the mangroves to the most beautiful ocean views - is the unique stamp of El Camaleón Mayakoba. Its interconnecting canals around the property will take you from one corner to another of the seven-thousand-yard course, which covers different points of the development in which the Fairmont is one of six luxury resorts slated to be built.
The course has a high degree of difficulty in each of its three distinct landscapes. “Add to that a slight breeze and we have a pretty difficult golf course,” comments director Douglas Goubault, who smiling adds that the designer Greg Norman’s first impression when he saw the virgin terrain in the middle of the Riviera Maya jungle was, “how are we going to do this?”. The course is a part of the Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary Program for Golf Courses. Together with the unquestionable talent of the renowned designer, you have an impressive golf course.
El Camaleon Mayakoba is the first course in Mexico chosen by the 2007 PGA Tour, because of which it has taken on the commitment to carry out the PGA event during the third week of February for the next six years. Such an achievement draws attention to the complex and to the region in general, since it places it among the best golf destinations.
