Ixtapa’s two world-class, 18-hole courses make this tropical destination a haven for golf enthusiasts. The courses are located at opposite ends of Ixtapa’s main hotel strip, just five minutes apart by taxi. Zihuatanejo is just 10 minutes away.
Palma Real Golf Course (Campo de Golf Palma Real) was designed by Robert Trent Jones Jr. in 1977 as a key element in the Master Plan of FONATUR (National Fund for Tourism Development) which conceived and developed Ixtapa as a modern resort destination, and created this golf course from a coconut plantation.
Marina Ixtapa Golf Club (Club de Golf Marina Ixtapa), designed by Robert von Hagge, opened in January 1994 as part of the multi-million-dollar Marina Ixtapa project. The two courses are located at opposite ends of Ixtapa’s main hotel strip, just five minutes apart by taxi (Zihuatanejo is just 10 minutes away). Both are both known for their expert and personalized caddy service which is also traditional throughout Mexico.
