One is the Pok-Ta-Pok course which runs along the the coast of the Caribbean and also Laguna Nichupté, the other is the Hilton Cancun Golf Club course that hugs the shores of Laguna Nichupté near the El Rey ruins on Kukulcán Blvd. The Hilton course is rumored to have alligators in one of the water hazards.
Cancun’s newest course, a Jack Nicklaus signature course, is located about 15 minutes west of the hotel zone on the road to Playa del Carmen and Tulum.
