The first event of PGA TOUR Latinoamérica’s inaugural season at the Yucatan Country Club’s El Jaguar Golf Course will combine a masterfully designed golf layout with spectacular landscapes, all surrounded by Mexico’s distinct culture and natural beauty. The choice of El Jaguar as host to the TOUR’s first tournament is a significant honor.

This par-72 Jack Nicklaus course stretching 7,282 yards opened in 2008 and has quickly become one of Mexico’s “must-play” venues.

Located in the heart of the ancient Mayan civilization’s homeland, El Jaguar constantly challenges players from their first tee shot to final putt. An interesting layout featuring five par-5s, eight par-4s, and five par-3s, the course employs numerous water hazards and sand traps, exhibiting the brilliant character typical of Golden Bear designs.

The Yucatan Country Club’s El Jaguar Golf Course, named in honor of a jealous deity in the Mayan culture, pays homage to the region’s ancestral people with archaeological remains adorning the course. The flagship 13th hole, a 575-yard par-5 with large lakes abutting the left side and Mayan ruins on the right, creates a special dynamic sure to challenge the professionals playing for the TOUR’s first title.

The course also features six cenotes, or submerged sinkholes, four waterfalls, and two restored Mayan complexes, a tribute to one of Mexican history’s most dominant civilizations.

"It's a great place to play golf and is one of my favorite courses in the region, the combination of culture and golf is unique," Jack Nicklaus said at the Yucatan Country Club’s inauguration, a testament to the exciting course and golf opening the PGA TOUR Latinoamérica’s pioneer season.
