Ixtapa Zihuatanejo Golf courses and rates

Ixtapa’s two world-class, 18-hole courses make this tropical destination a haven for golf enthusiasts. The courses are located at opposite ends of Ixtapa’s main hotel strip, just five minutes apart by taxi. Zihuatanejo is just 10 minutes away.

Palma Real Golf Course (Campo de Golf Palma Real) was designed by Robert Trent Jones Jr. in 1977 as a key element in the Master Plan of FONATUR (National Fund for Tourism Development) which conceived and developed Ixtapa as a modern resort destination, and created this golf course from a coconut plantation.

Marina Ixtapa Golf Club (Club de Golf Marina Ixtapa), designed by Robert von Hagge, opened in January 1994 as part of the multi-million-dollar Marina Ixtapa project. The two courses are located at opposite ends of Ixtapa’s main hotel strip, just five minutes apart by taxi (Zihuatanejo is just 10 minutes away). Both are both known for their expert and personalized caddy service which is also traditional throughout Mexico.

Palma Real Golf Course

A superb example of original Robert Trent Jones Jr. design, this par 72, 6,898-yard Palma Real Golf Course harmonizes with its environment which, in fact, is a former coconut plantation that retains its natural lakes, lagoons, and lush tropical vegetation alongside the scenic Pacific coastline. The Sierra Madre Sur provides a panoramic mountainous backdrop.

Players enjoy not only some of the world's best golfing, but also a feeling of closeness to Nature. Surrounding the course are coconut and other species of palms, and trees abundant with mangoes, guavas, limes, oranges and almonds. Brilliantly-colored flowers accent the verdant vegetation.

Mexican and international ecologists consider these grounds a wildlife preserve. Golfers see and hear a variety of exotic birds such as parrots, macaws, cardinals, and a rare and peculiar species of eagle called pescador (“fisherman”) because it feeds exclusively on fish from the lakes. Seen but not heard are rabbits and “giant" iguanas.

Do not attempt to retrieve balls from the water hazards because crocodiles live in some of them! They usually repose submerged and out of sight, however they do stroll around at dawn.

Marina Ixtapa Golf Club

Marina Ixtapa Golf Club (Club de Golf Marina Ixtapa) Robert von Hagge, famed for creating some of the world's most outstanding courses, designed this par 72, 6793-yard course with meandering canals, 12 bridges, and a dunes-style topography.

Rolling terrain covers 136 acres, with expansive sand traps and water hazards guarding 14 of the 18 holes. No wonder Golf Digest Magazine ranked it as one of Mexico’s best.

The Clubhouse, in Spanish-Mediterranean architecture, features and airy restaurant and lounge areas with picture windows and balconies overlooking the yacht marina and golf course. Facilities include a full-service pro-shop, men's and women's locker rooms, tennis courts, swimming pool and, of course, the "19th hole for that extra round".
