For a Golf Experience Your Group will Never Forget

For 42 years, El Cid Golf & Country Club has provided an exceptional golf experience in the heart of Mazatlan’s Golden Zone. Our 27-hole, PGA-rated championship course has hosted the prestigious Mexico Professional Tour, Canadian Tour and Mexico Golf Federation for Children & Youth, multiple times. The original course features 18 holes, followed by the Marina 9, developed by Lee Treviño in 1999 and described by Golf Today as “an absolute winner”.

El Cid Golf & Country Club has been described as one of the most remarkable courses along the Pacific Coast of Mexico. It has generous Bermuda grass greens with fairways framed by majestic palms, pinon, rubber and capiros trees with abundant bird life, turtles and iguanas. Multiple holes play directly along or over water on this beautiful, diverse course, which presents challenges to golfers of all skill levels.

For every golfer to warm up or hone their skills, a practice putting/chipping green and driving range is located beside the clubhouse. With our practice facility and highly trained professionals, El Cid is fully equipped to provide members with a memorable golf experience.

Richard A. Janes PGA Tour Commission & CEO Canadian

The golf in Mazatlan was some of the best I have encountered during my many travels abroad, and is without a doubt some of the most beautiful and scenic I have ever seen. From the palm tree lined fairways to ocean and Marina views, to tall trees and houses, I think you have it all covered!

Tony Bender Breezy Point Country Club

You are offering an extremely good value to golf operators and their clients. I price compared with some wholesalers and the rate you are offering is lower than either of those and includes the golf. The Elite All-inclusive is great, you can always take the shuttle from the El Cid Marina Hotel to the other properties and even eat at their restaurants.

Charlie Brown Good Time Travel

“El Cid has 27 holes which could allow 3 days of play because of the possibility to combine the three 9 hole loops in different order. Marina Mazatlán is a great new golf course and Estrella del Mar is a stunning course and this Robert Trent Jones Course contributes a lot to the value of the destination. I loved La Marina Resort, the quality and settings are a good match for the lifestyle of the serious golfer. We enjoyed dinner at El Patio and La Concha with its beautiful setting at the other El Cid properties. In all cases, the food is of a very high standard and the service exceeded our expectations.”

Evelyn Gruber Golf Travel Consulting

“I played at El Cid Resorts Mazatlán, Mexico, in July and was over whelmed with the need to please attitude. So much so, that I put together a group of 6 players and returned in November. We played 72 holes of golf in 3 days on a 5 day stay at El Cid Castillo. We never had to ask for a thing. The golf courses were maintained to top levels and the caddies knew their stuff. We had scenery, great holes, great food and rooms with a view fit for a king. All in all it was one of the best trips I have taken in several years.

We took a tour into town one night was pleased to see several hundred folks out with their children having a great time in their city. We all felt very safe everywhere we went in Mazatlán.”
