With a perfect location designed by Robert Trent Jones Jr., the 6,898-yard Campo de Golf Palma Real (Palma Real Golf Course) is spread over just under 179 acres (72 hectares) of land, and is accompanied by extraordinary flora and fauna. It boasts vast, beautiful slopes, in addition to natural lagoons and lush tropical vegetation preserved alongside the scenic Pacific coast.
This is the ideal place for those who love and play golf, as you get to enjoy not only the game, but also a closeness and harmony with nature. The course is framed by large palm trees as well as different varieties of fruit trees.
In one area of the course, specifically at the par-4 15th hole, at 350 yards, which overlooks the sea, you can enjoy a view of the Mexican Pacific, with its slopes, immense Green, and haphazard drops. National and international players come together to participate in the tournaments which take place here each year.
Connection with nature
The area has been highlighted among Mexican ecologists as being an ecological reserve, given the huge variety of exotic birds to be found there. You may catch sight of parakeets, parrots, cardinals, and a rare species of eagle, among others.
Whether you are playing or visiting, the course offers a golf cart rental service, ideal for exploring and getting to know every inch of the area; there is also equipment and balls for you to practice with, if you want to give the sport a try. If you prefer to rest for a while, you can do so in the “snack bar” or alongside the mobile cart-bar.
Among other activities available, there are also tennis courts. Prices and court hire include the use of changing rooms and showers.
