golf-mayakoba-remaxProceeds go to Charity Group for Children, New Players Invited

This Saturday Dec. 9th, The Camaleon golf course at Mayakoba will be the site of major golf tournament for the benefit of Un Kilo de Ayuda (A kilo of help), a local charity group that feeds children in poor neighborhoods.

The host of the tournament is Remax Playa, a local real estate sales company in Playa del Carmen. The Greg Norman designed golf course is probably the finest in the area.

El Camaleón Golf Course at the Mayakoba resort is Greg Norman's latest masterwork. The 7,000-yard layout is unique - not just to Mexico but to the entire world of golf. The course bends through three distinct landscapes - mangrove jungles, limestone canals and stunning, oceanfront stretches of sand. El Camaleón incorporates a cenote, a massive underground cavern, into the heart of the opening fairway.

The handsome, Mayan influenced clubhouse that rises above the 18th green will feature a fine dining room with stunning views over the course. The adjoining practice facility and driving range are of international caliber. With Mayakoba's unique system of lagoons, golfers will be able to step out of their rooms and into a boat, which will ferry them directly to the first tee. El Camaleón Golf Course is managed by Fairmont Hotels & Resorts.
