(RIVIERA MAYA, MEXICO) July 6, 2021 – PGA Tour Latinoamerica’s final event of the 2020–2021 season is set to take place in Bahia Principe Hotels & Resorts’ PGA Riviera Maya golf course. Located within the all-inclusive hospitality brand’s Mexican Caribbean resort, Bahia Principe Riviera Maya Resort, the PGA Riviera Maya Golf Club is the first golf course in Latin America to develop a relationship with the PGA of America and aims to promote the development of golfers alongside world-class tourism experiences. The 72-hole tournament, presented in partnership with Bupa and Volvo, is scheduled for July 22–25.
The Bahia Principe Riviera Maya Resort is home to four hotels, four luxurious spas, countless swimming pools, fitness centers, a convention center, shopping areas, and the spectacular PGA Riviera Maya golf course. Located just 30 minutes from Playa del Carmen and 20 minutes from Tulum’s majestic Mayan ruins, the resort is the ideal escape for travelers who seek a tropical getaway that features a variety of activities and experiences. Designed by world-renowned Robert Trent Jones II, PGA Riviera Maya is a one-of-a-kind, 27-hole course spread out over 220 acres. Integrating the region’s natural wonders, such as the Mayan jungle, cenotes, and natural lakes, into its design, the course is divided into an 18-hole course and a 9-hole executive course.
Travelers who choose to visit the Riviera Maya can pick from the four, all-inclusive properties located within Bahia Principe Riviera Maya Resort. The family-friendly Bahia Principe Luxury Akumal features high-end amenities and accommodations, including a beachfront lounge with a private swimming pool only for adults, 24-hour room service, and a Kids Club for the youngest family members. At the adults-only Bahia Principe Luxury Sian Ka’an, guests can experience a luxurious jungle retreat coupled with tranquility and exclusivity. Meanwhile, at the recently renovated Bahia Principe Grand Tulum, the region’s Mayan origins are placed front and center, while presenting four room categories with upgraded amenities, an international culinary offering, an expansive Kids Zone, and newly improved entertainment options for guests of all ages. Lastly, Bahia Principe Grand Coba, which caters to every member of the family, is a secluded property where kids will love splashing around in the hotel’s sprawling waterpark while parents decompress at Bahia Spa.
Travelers who book now will benefit from a 10% discount when using the code PGATOUR to finalize their booking process. An additional discount will be added when registering with My Bahia Principe, the brand’s loyalty program platform. Other benefits include: the first child stays for free, changes and cancellations are free of charge, and COVID antigen testing is complimentary. Terms and conditions may apply.
The Bupa Championship presented by Volvo will conclude an extended season that began in March 2020 with the Estrella del Mar Open in Mazatlan, Mexico. Right at the conclusion of that event, the COVID-19 pandemic forced the PGA Tour Latinoamerica to interrupt its season for nine months, restarting it in December 2020.
