“El Jaguar”, a Jack Nicklaus Signature course in Mérida:
“El Jaguar” began with a spectacular site that allowed us to create a special design born from the dense jungle vegetation and enhanced by fresh water lagoons and Maya ruins. Our desire is that every golfer finds El Jaguar to be a memorable as it is playable. “El Jaguar” is a course of 18 holes, par 72, with a distance of 7295 yards. It has a feature unique in Mexico: in the second round, its configuration is: three par 4, three par 3, and three par 5, putting the player’s strategies and abilities to the test.
A “Nature-friendly” course:
The greens in the entire course are of the latest technology (Seashore Paspalum SDX-1). This allowed the creation of an environmentally-friendly course. It uses 50% less water, and is irrigated with water which, due to its high salinity, acts as a natural weed killer. Another important characteristic is that it uses double the amount of carbon dioxide of most plants, creating a natural filter which generates purer air to the course, made up of more than 800 thousand square meters of green area. All of these features give the player a pleasant climate and environment in which to play year-round.
His name is synonymous with great golf, where his classic risk vs. reward design style challenges golfers as much by their shot-making ability as their mental toughness. Today, his signature courses are celebrated as much for their outstanding character as their inherent challenge of play, in more than 380 courses in 54 countries.
