Mazatlán has two high caliber Championship Courses and an older 9 hole course at which a round of golf is very affordable.
The waterfront course at Estrella del Mar on Stone Island is likely to become one of your favorite Mexican courses. Estrella del Mar is situated along the shores of the Pacific ocean and is surrounded by a new resort development. The setting is very tropical, very exotic. This picturesque 18 hole course was designed by Robert Trent Jones Jr. This course is accessible by a road very close to the entrance to the airport. Open to the public.
The El Cid championship course features 27 challenging holes of golf, designed by Lee Trevino. This beautiful course is situated in the heart of the Golden Zone and is surrounded by the El Cid marina. The course at El Cid is open to the public only during the off season or on a limited basis during high season – call ahead for reservations.
The third course in Mazatlán is Club Campestre Golf and Country Club. This is an older nine hole course, that leaves much to be desired, but for $15.00 U.S. per round you can hardly complain. The “Country Club”? I think there was something lost in the translation of that term. Take a taxi, as it is not very easy to find.
