Playing more than 7,500 yards from the championship tees, one aspect to the course that becomes all too apparent from the beginning hole is there is a lot of room out here. The course was grassed wall-to-wall with paspalum turf, and there is plenty of it. Two holes, the third and 15th, even have alternate right and left greens.

The front nine’s eighth hole plays entirely along the sea, while the 18th is easily the most spectacular hole of the bunch. It’s a long, par-4, dogleg right around the crashing waves. Golfers who are bold can try and cut off as much length as they can by hitting over the cliffs, leaving themselves with a shot to the green right beside the edge.

Designed along the natural cliffs, bays, ocean coves and the inland lakes and coralina quarries; add in the six ocean holes, most notably the par-3 ninth and the par-4 18th, and you’ve got a golf paradise ranked No. 9 among the top golf courses in the Caribbean and Mexico by Golfweek for 2012. Two greens on holes No. 3 and No. 15 add shot variety and rotate play daily. That is surely why Corales Golf Course rates among the World’s finest Golf Experiences.
