Country Club Playa PalmasCampeche, Mexico
Private Golf Course
Ciudad del Carmen is a city in southeast Mexico. It sits on Isla del Carmen, between the Gulf of Mexico and Laguna de Términos, a protected natural area with dolphins and turtles.
Letsche Design was appointed to resigned the course with a brief from ownership to create a strategic golf course with bunkering and water features, rewarding the golfer off the tee for a good shot but not overly penalize for a poor shot.
Drainage will be a key factor in the redesign at the course as it’s only 2 meters above sea level. The selection of the grass paspalum was selected due to the proximity of the ocean.
There will be little or no rough promoting “firm and fast” ball movement though the course strate-gy.
The course is projected to open June 2019.
