Golf in Mexico

Here is a fact that might surprise you: Mexico is the number two worldwide golf destination for U.S. golfers, right behind Hawaii. The Mexican Government Department of Tourism wants to change that ranking. That's right -- they are determined to become number one, and at the rate they are going it shouldn't take too long to achieve that goal.

To seasoned Mexico travelers the reasons are obvious. Mexico is an amazingly diverse country blessed with gorgeous locations that rival any in the world, from the stark beauty of Baja California hard against the Sea of Cortez to the new jungle courses in Puerto Vallarta. In the interior of Mexico, at elevations over 5,000 feet you can golf the wonderful traditional courses of Mexico City, Guadalajara and Morelos. In fact, there are now more than 150 golf courses in Mexico with the world's top architects (Nicklaus, Dye, Von Hagge, Weiskopf, Jones, to name a few) lining up to create new, exciting venues to meet the rising demand.

And in case you haven't noticed, Mexico is right next door. Direct flights from gateway U.S. cities will have you teeing off the same day that you board your plane, after checking into a world-class hotel manned by the friendliest, most respectful people you'll find anywhere on the planet. Or, if you prefer, you might choose an old, culturally-rich colonial inn with portola lined walkways and colorful bougainvillea climbing the walls. Take a serene evening walk on the pristine beach, party half the night downing street tacos, or settle into a three-hour meal prepared by a French-trained chef…the choice is yours. Want to take a day off from the course? Take a jungle cruise, rent a car and go visit the seaside village nearby, or take in a day of catch-and-release deep-sea fishing.

You see, a golf trip to Mexico is more than just golf. It is a culturally rewarding, educationally enriching adventure that you just aren't going to get in Myrtle Beach, Orlando, or Scottsdale. And here's the best part: it doesn't have to cost any more! You will find some great deals available to destinations all over Mexico. They want your business, and they are making it very enticing to make their country your choice for a great golf vacation.
