Concierge.com's insider take:
Cancún has a surprisingly large number of golf courses packed into the narrow strip of the Zona Hotelera. Cancún Golf Club at Pok-ta-Pok was designed by Robert Trent Jones, Jr., in 1976 (Blvd. Kukulcán, Km 7.5; 52-998-883-1230; www.cancungolfclub.com). The Gran Meliá Cancún has a nine-hole course open to the public for a fee (Blvd. Kukulcán, Km 16.5; 52-998-881-1100; www.granmeliacancun.com/activities). The course at the Hilton Cancún Golf & Spa Resort is better than ever after a $6 million renovation that fixed severe damage from Hurricane Wilma (Blvd. Kukulcán, Km 17; 52-998-881-8000; www.hiltoncancun.com/golf). Nearby, the Moon Spa & Golf Club (Carretera Cancún-Chetumal, Km 340; 52-998-881-6000; palaceresorts.com/Golf) also has courses open to the public for a fee, as does the Playa Mujeres Golf Club (Punta Sam; 52-998-887-7322; www.playamujeresgolf.com), designed by Greg Norman in a burgeoning resort area north of Cancún.
