New Pricing at Campo de Golf Palma Real

Padrino probably knows about Baha Mar golf course between Rosarito and Ensenada Mexico. 55 bucks to play and many holes on the ocean. Short drive across the boarder from San Diego. We’ve all played enough courses in different locations. This rate for 125.00 will be bad for all. No way the owner or the course will survive. If someone pays that price that has not played the course before they will not play it again unless they make it a top notch course and that won’t happen in Ixtapa.


I have passed it many times (I think) but in the interests of full disclosure, my only experience with golf is miniature golf. To me, real golf seems like an invitation to hours of painful frustration, heartache, and self-loathing. Of course, if you can get that little white ball into the cup 350 yards away in three shots, then you can make a whole lotta' money!

Ha! That's what I thought until I discovered a cheap golf course near my home in Gainesville. They even had night golf. We'd huff a big one or two, smack a bucket of balls on the driving range, then play Zen Golf where you check your brain at the gate and don't worry about playing like Jack Nicklaus. We just had fun. A couple of beers and joints later we were back at the clubhouse wearing big grins and red eyes.

125 bucks a game in Ixtapa's Palma Real is simply ridiculous!
