Golf and the Riviera Maya were not synonymous just a short time ago.  However, today the Mayan Riviera has become a golf destination in its' own right.  With several new courses, the selection of Riviera Maya golf courses is becoming quite plentiful.   These are not just golf courses hacked out of the jungle by some local developer, but sculptured courses carefully planned and designed by major names in modern golf course design who have an appreciation for the game and the environment.  Since the PGA signing licensing agreements to play an annual tournament at the Mayakoba in 2007 (the first money paying PGA tournament ever played in Mexico with a purse of $3.5 million) the Mayan Riviera has become known on the world golfing map.   Below is a listing of area golf courses starting with the courses in Cancun and then moving south along the Riviera Maya toward Tulum.
