The 10 hole, par 3 course inspired by iconic holes around the world is expected to open in 2025.

MEXICO CITY, MEXICO – Mandarina, the luxury resort and residential destination developed by RLH Properties on Mexico’s Pacific Coast, announced the plans for a new golf course designed by Greg Norman, a world-renowned golfer and golf course designer. As part of the extensive Mandarina Experiences program, which offers concierge-style services and excursions to residents and guests, the golf club will feature a 10-hole short course comprised of par 3 holes, taking inspiration from iconic holes at famous courses around the world, such as Augusta National, Pebble Beach, Pine Valley and Royal Melbourne. The course will provide a new facet of leisure and entertainment at Mandarina and another unique amenity in The Flatlands, the sprawling green
landscape between the property’s mountain peaks. Completion of the new golf course is slated for 2025.

“In a continuation of our efforts to give visitors and residents the best experience possible, we are thrilled to announce the upcoming golf course at Mandarina,” said Luis Durán, Chief Executive Officer at RLH Properties. “The expert design and unique concept of this golf course adds another layer of luxury, exclusivity and adventure to the esteemed resort destination, and we can’t wait for residents and guests at One&Only Mandarina and the future Rosewood Mandarina to enjoy this new amenity.”

Nestled just east of the Pacific Ocean’s shoreline, select holes will overlook the Sierra del Vallejo mountain range, and the existing Mandarina Polo & Equestrian Club, an amenity encompassing over 10-acres in The Flatlands. Designed to be enjoyable for families of all ages but challenging enough for avid golfers, the new golf course will further solidify Mandarina as a top destination for luxury experiences. Additionally, post round, golfers playing the new course will have the opportunity to catch a sunset polo match and dine under the stars at Chukker, the Argentine asado grill located in the fields of the Mandarina Polo & Equestrian Club.

“I am honored to be working yet again with RLH Properties on this incredible property in Mexico,” said Greg Norman, CEO of Greg Norman Golf Course Design. “The course at Mandarina will be unlike any other. Each par three hole is an inspiration from some of the most iconic and classic courses from around the world, so playing it will produce a welcome sense of familiarity. We’re excited to provide golfers of all ages and abilities with an unforgettable experience at each hole.”

Recognized as the premier signature golf course design firm in the world, Greg Norman Golf Course Design (GNGCD) has envisioned over 120 courses across 34 countries and six continents, including El Camaleón at Mayakoba, another RLH Properties development in Riviera Maya, Mexico. The firm is also responsible for The Bluffs Ho Tram Strip in Vietnam, The Oaks Course at TPC San Antonio, and Real El Prat Golf Club in Barcelona.

In addition to the new golf club, Mandarina is home to the One&Only Mandarina hotel and a collection of 55 branded residences, One&Only Mandarina Private Homes, the first of residences from the brand in the Western Hemisphere. New hotel and residential concepts from the esteemed Rosewood Hotel Group are also in the pipeline at the property. Residents at One&Only Mandarina Private Homes and Rosewood Residences Mandarina will get priority access to reservations at the new course, as well as special rates on the green fees and a separate membership opportunity to the golf club as part of Club Mandarina, an amenity only offered to homeowners. Guests at One&Only Mandarina, the 105-villa luxury hotel, and the highly anticipated Rosewood Mandarina, a forthcoming 140-key luxury hotel, will also have access to the golf course and all resort-wide amenities.
