El Camaleon Mayakoba Golf Club overview
El Camaleon Mayakoba Golf Course overview
El Camaleon takes its name from the Chameleon, primarily as the layout offers continually changing views as it meanders through three distinct ecosystems: the tropical Mayan jungle, mangrove wetlands and the Mexican Caribbean Sea coastline.
Principle features of the course involve the hazards such as cenotes (sink holes), extensive bunkering and freshwater canals that wind their way through the property. At 7,024 yards from the back tees, this par-72 is built for championship golf especially with several of the holes having tight landing areas. Golfers looking to play at the best courses during their vacation should certainly include a round at this PGA TOUR venue.
The par-3 15th is the signature hole at El Camaleon. It’s only 155 yards but runs alongside the Caribbean, and the strong ocean breeze always makes club selection tricky. Enjoy the sweeping views of Cozumel and the world’s second largest coral reef.
