Nestled in the jungle of the Yucatán on what was once the grounds of Dzibilchaltún, is the Golf Club of Yucatán.

Open seven days a week with 18 holes and a par 72, Club de Golf de Yucatán is located just off the MéridaProgreso highway. If you are visiting for a just a day or are one of the lucky snowbirds that live along the coast in Progreso, Chicxulub, Chelem or Telchac Puerto, and are going to be here for a few months, the club is open to you. With a monthly membership you can use all the facilities that include equipment rental, carts, and caddies, plus tennis, a pool, gym, steam baths and a restaurant bar that is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. You will also find a putting green, a driving range and the Pro-shop.

La Ceiba Golf Course on the MéridaProgreso highway accepts walk-ons.

Prices for a round of golf (18 holes):
Green Fee: $2000
Golf Cart: $500

Monthly membership: $8000 (access to golf course only)

All prices in pesos (March 2018).

The sport of golf was brought to the Yucatan in 1969 when the visionary architect Felix Mier y Terán (father of our publisher) and Mr. Vicente Erosa got together, bought the land, designed the course and then built some homes that were the beginning of the development that is built between the greens and fairways. These two gents advertised in American golf magazines with the idea of bringing retired Americans to the Yucatán. A cute colonial home with a central courtyard along the main avenue on a lot that measured 30 meters by 100 meters went for $33,000 dollars back then.

In 1988 Mr. Trino Molina bought the club, injected some serious capital, and has made the club what it is today – an important place in Yucatán for families and golfers alike.
