DaveFinn review

Marina Mazatlán is a David Fleming designed links-style layout built on a relatively flat piece of inland property but it just maybe lushest of the three we’ve played. The greens are oversized, irregular in shape with mounding around the perimeter that defines each hole. The fairways are wide and forgiving, and the sand bunkers are big, deep and soft. Overall the course is in fabulous condition due to its use of the first generation of eco-friendly salt-tolerant Paspalum turf. The front nine that opened in 2014 offers little or no shade so bring your sunblock. You won’t lose any golf balls here as the rough is short and there is no water. The wind, however, is a major factor. The back nine which opened in 2009 is much more tree-lined and boasts several unique holes including the par-3 12th where an accurate mid-iron is needed to carry a water hazard but don’t be long as the pond wraps around the back of the green. Fleming, however, saved the best for last. The 17th is my personal favorite – a par-3 over a mangrove inlet since it is the most visually appealing. The par-5 18th hole starts over a river onto the fairways lined with trees and mangroves. A spectacular finish to our round. When I complimented General Manager, Jorge Franssen on the great conditioning he smiled and said, “We take great pride in this course and send out a crew every day just to repair divot marks. ” This par-72 ranges 5,067 to 6,747 yards with a 73.1-course rating to a 126 slope. Green fees range from USD $75-95 that include a cart (no GPS), bottled water and range balls.
