The Nicklaus Design Group has successfully balanced the strict requirements of building a first-class golf course within the delicate ecosystem of the surrounding mangroves, marshlands and tropical rainforest.
The golf course is home to blue crabs, iguanas, crocodiles, raccoons and a multitude of species of birds as well as other wildlife which call this habitat home.
Four sets of tees allow golfers of all skill levels to enjoy their round of golf as well as the peace and quiet of the natural surroundings and Cozumel Country Club also offers an additional option – The FASTEE COURSE™! One of only two in Mexico Measuring 3,219 yards, the FASTEE COURSE™ is perfect for juniors, seniors and beginners.
Because of its strong commitment to an environmental program, in March 2006. Cozumel Country Club became the first golf course in Mexico to earn the designation of Certified Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary from Audubon International.
To reach certification, a course must demonstrate that they are maintaining a high degree of environmental quality in a number of areas including environmental planning, wildlife and habitat management, outreach and education, chemical use reduction and safety, water conservation, and water quality management. Cozumel Country Club has formed partnerships with several island hotels, extending varying golf privileges to their guests.
Cozumel Country Club is across the street from El Cozumeleño Beach Resort and 10 minutes from both the International Airport and the downtown pier, on the Northern end of the Island.
