With the greens in perfect condition, we hear the tournament filled up quickly and there’s already a wait list! It’s a great weekend for golf!

Speaking of golf, if you’re not teeing up at the 7th Anniversary Tournament at The Links, make your way to the meticulously landscaped 9 holes at Laguna del Mar or take in the spectacular views at the Peninsula de Cortez course at Mayan Palace.
