Hilton Cancun renovates golf course

The sounds of spectacular drives and incredible putts will once again be music to the ears of avid golfers at the Hilton Cancun Golf & Spa resort, as the course reopens after a $6 million renovation. The much anticipated re-opening of the Hilton Cancun’s world class 18-hole, par-72 championship golf course will kick off at 8 am on December 16, 2006 with a golf tournament benefiting the Juan Jose Arreola Technical High School where guests were sheltered during Hurricane Wilma.

The stunning and spectacular 6,735-yard course and club are surrounded by natural beauty, exotic wildlife (wild peacocks, watchful iguanas, and sunbathing crocodiles), and indigenous flora and fauna. Golfers will appreciate and enjoy brand new tee-to-green Paspalum Sea Isle 1 turf in addition to gorgeous views of the turquoise waters of the Caribbean Sea and the azure Nichupte Lagoon. Playability is key and the more challenging course now offers a lengthened layout (6,800 yards), reshaped fairways, white sandy bunkers and championship tee boxes leveled to USGA standards. A $1.5 million irrigation system ensures that the course will remain in optimum condition year-round. Moreover, the course boasts a renovated practice facility, including driving range and putting green, deluxe golf carts and a top-quality pro shop offering the latest in golf equipment, fashion and apparel.

Set in a 150-acre tropical paradise, the world class golf course is open to all. The standard high season rate of $199 USD includes the round of play, golf cart, and all taxes. Guests of the newly-renovated Hilton Cancun receive a special discounted rate of $149 which represents a 25% savings! Every level of golf enthusiasts, from scratch players to high-handicappers, will enjoy playing this extraordinary course. Clubs, shoes, and everything else a golfer might need are available in the Pro Shop. And the course’s own restaurant, Hoyo 19, serves delicious meals and snacks beginning at sunrise and continuing throughout the day.

The Hilton Cancun Golf & Spa Resort reopened in May 2006 after an impressive $43 million renovation of the entire resort.

Fresh paint adorns the tiered structure as well as new landscaping on the 150 acre property and the resurfacing of the incredible pool deck.
