Mayakoba – El Camaleón Course, Mexico0

Designed by legendary Australian golfer Greg Norman and inaugurated in 2006, El Camaleon Golf Course made golf history in 2007 when it became the home of the OHL CLASSIC at Mayakoba, the first PGA Tour event to be contested outside the US and Canada.

EL CAMALEON MAYAKOBA has two distinct characteristics. The ocean side of the course is part of a vast system of mangrove wetlands with minimal undulation. Upper area holes are rolling and rocky. Design features are dramatic and cenotes create unusual hazards. Several holes have tight landing areas. This, coupled with great playing conditions, make it a first-rate venue.


Like the chameleon, from which it takes its name, the course offers constantly changing views as it winds through three diverse ecosystems: the tropical Mayan jungle, mangrove wetlands and the Mexican Caribbean Sea coastline. Distinctive hazards such as cenotes (sink holes), extensive bunkers and crystal-clear fresh water canals are unique features of El Camaleon, certified by Audubon International for its commitment to the environment.
