Go to the top of the website under activities and find golf. We used to bring clubs with us and play, but decided it was not worth it when they kept raising the rates. We could play much better courses at home for far less money.

With 3 couples might look into buying some passes I think the minimum is 20 with a discount.They also have a senior discount which is the cheapest way to play.The course, I played last time in Late April, was in good shape.The club rentals are not very good, they look like "lost and found" clubs probably are.Look at Rob's golf page it looks up to date.

I am not sure if your guests are staying in a hotel or condo, but many of them have the passes that you could buy. As well, if you aren't opposed to playing later in the day 2 pm is the perfect time to play the back nine first as the wind comes up, then the front nine last as it cools down. 2pm is twilight rates comparable to pass pricing. There are senior rates as well.

Palma Real's web site is golftourismmexico.com. The current walkup rate is 1280 pesos for 18 holes with cart and range balls. I didn't see a senior rate listed, but last winter it was 1000 pesos per round. You need to be 60+ and have a photocopy of your drivers license each time you want to buy a senior rate round. (for fraud protection), so if you each want to play 3 times, get 3 copies made. They will not make them for you at the course, so get them made at home or at the paper store near Dominos in Ixtapa Plaza. With 8 people, if you are going to play 3 times-for a total of 24 rounds- you can buy bulk tickets. 20-49 at 40% discount or 50+ at 45% discount. They are good for one year. I used to buy 50 and sell any excess to walkups at the course. Now I just buy an annual pass.

The Marina course is in bad shape, and even if it were in good shape I wouldn't care to play it. Not a great layout at all.

I just updated it again with the data from their website. If it's more confusing or incomplete than before it ain't my fault. Apparently whoever's in charge of their website doesn't play golf or know the terminology. ;-)
