Gran Coyote Golf
Gran Coyote Golf Club Overview
Located in Playa del Carmen on the east coast of Mexico and 40 miles south of Cancun is Gran Coyote Golf. Opening in 2011 it is one of the younger golf facilities in the area. Designed by three-time major champion Nick Price, you’ll find manicured fairways and contoured greens that blend into the natural surroundings. The facilities at the clubhouse are first-class, from the extensive practice area and the stocked pro-shop to the food and drink available both on and off the course.
The Coyote Grill is in the shade of a large tree next to the clubhouse and serves up everything from
barbequed New York steak tacos to pulled pork sandwiches and a selection of beverages. The 19th Hole Snack Restaurant is a relaxed alternative overlooking the 18th green and serving breakfast specials to late afternoon appetizers.
Gran Coyote Golf Course
The Nick Price-designed course at Gran Coyote Golf is an 18-hole par 71 layout that works its way through the coastal jungle landscape. The fairways are relatively wide however the wind can play a factor both off the tee, and with your approach into the greens as it is known to whip in off the nearby ocean. With excellent putting surfaces and manicured fairways, it’s an enjoyable course to experience in Playa del Carmen, and with a number of teeing options all golfers can choose a challenge that matches their ability. Despite having only opened in 2011, the course has already gained recognition as a qualifying course for the World Amateur Championship.
The highlight of your round will come at the par-3 5th Hole. Measuring 148-yards from the championship tees it may appear easy on paper, however golfers are met with a difficult tee shot into a green protected both left and right by both bunkers and a large water hazard. Anything short is destined for trouble and even if you hit the green, the undulating putting surface continues to test your game.
