Booking Your Tee Time

Grand Coral Golf

There are certain things to keep in mind when booking a tee time. The rates always depend on the time you want to book and this applies for every golf course at Riviera Maya. The cheapest hours are usually the ones when the courses are less crowded; around 9:00am and noon. The most expensive ones of course remain among 7:00am and 9:00am and then the afternoons from 3:00pm to 5:00pm, this is when the sun is at its peak.

It is recommended to have a pair of comfortable shoes especially for the tournaments. You can always bring your equipment but it is not necessary, you can rent it as well at every Golf club in the area. It is suggested to book your tee times with at least 2 weeks in advance. This will increase your chances on getting the best available times and rates. If you do not have a partner, you can always leave your name on the list and the staff will gladly find a partner for you to play.
