Course Overview

"The most unique opportunity to combine great golf and culture we have been involved with. Jaguar Golf Club will soon be the buzz among golf travelers".

"Imagine playing golf where the Mayan's played ball more than 2000 years ago."

Welcome to El Jaguar (hag-whar) at Yucatan Country Club, a Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Course par 72, 7,282 yard masterpiece.

Travelers who have been to Merida know what a well-kept secret this beautiful city is. Merida, the capital of Yucatan is a beautiful 550 year old colonial. Its close proximity to the beautiful beaches of Progreso allow for Merida's residents and visitors to enjoy both ocean pleasures, and the cultural extravaganza of a true colonial Mexican city. In addition Merida is less than a 3 hour drive to Cancun where you can enjoy other Nicklas Design and Signature Courses.

We're certain many people have overlooked Merida as a tourist destination or a retirement destination because of the lack of great golf. Those days will soon be over. The Jaguar Golf Club will be among the very elite courses in all of Mexico, including Los Cabos , Cancun and the Mayan Riviera. It will also be the home of Mexico's first official Active Adult Community.

The development itself is only 15 minutes from the Ocean and 10 minutes from the business center of Merida. However, the most enchanting fact is that it is built right inside the 2,000 year old Mayan City of Dzibiltchaltun. This blending of Mayan Culture, Colonial Mexico and the sea life as well as championship golf offer an extremely privileged lifestyle for those who live inside or visit this 720 acre master planned community.

18 Hole Jack Nicklaus Signature Championship Course:

Soon to be home of one of the most important PGA tournaments, El Jaguar is a challenging task for golfers of all ages and skill levels.

Forget about that fact that Yucatan Country Club and The Jaguar Golf Course are built inside the Mayan City and has five restored authentic ruins, along with you will your round. With its unique layout- five par 5s, eight par 4s and five par 3s- this magnificent Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Course provides unforgettable rounds of golf all four seasons of the year.
