Mayakoba’s El Camaleón, is seen as one of the most diverse golf courses in the world and will kick off the 2023 LIV Golf league in style.
The event, the first LIV Golf even in Latin America, will see some of the world’s biggest names go head-to-head in Mexico between 24-26 February 2023.
For the last 16 years, the Norman-designed El Camaleón along the pristine Riviera Maya oceanfront has been home to the World Wide Technology Championship at Mayakoba (formerly the Mayakoba Golf Classic) where Graeme McDowell (2015) and Pat Perez (2016) have been victorious.
Ranked as one of the top courses in Mexico by Golf Digest, El Camaleón will welcome many of the world’s best, including Mexican stars Abraham Ancer and Carlos Ortiz, to Mayakoba’s 620-acre resort and residential destination which blends through a diverse ecosystem boasting tropical jungle, dense mangroves, natural lagoons, and a sugar sand beach.
Borja Escalada, CEO of RLH Properties (Mayakoba), said: “Mayakoba is honored to have been a pioneer for golf within Mexico and Latin America over the past 16 years, and we are incredibly proud of the outstanding players who have found success competing at Mayakoba during this time, from Carlos Ortiz, Armando Favela and Abraham Ancer to Jon Rahm and Eugenio Chacarra.
“We could not be more excited to continue this pioneering legacy with LIV Golf, a true industry innovator, and to bring back the best Mexican golfers to play in their home country. We are sure that this alliance will continue to allow us to show the rest of the world all that Mexico, Quintana Roo, Riviera Maya and Mayakoba have to offer.”
