Playa Del Carmen, Mexico (PressExposure) June 23, 2011 -- While a development of Playa del Carmen villas at the north end of the city already hold high appeal for American the Canadian buyers, the addition of a new, professionally-designed golf course in this part of the city makes them even more appealing.
Although the golf course is not in the same master development, it is within a 5 minute drive, making it the second professionally-designed golf course in very close proximity to these villas. The golf course is designed by pro golfer, Nick Price. The first golf course was designed by Greg Norman and is host to Playa del Carmen's Mayakoba Golf Classic, Latin America's first PGA event.
Playa del Carmen is home to a total of 9 golf courses, many of them with a professional design. There are several more in Cancun's Hotel Zone, about 45 minutes to one hour away. Another nice course is just across the strait on the island of Cozumel, likewise about 45 minutes away, but by ferry. Because of this variety of courses to choose from, and the presence of international events, such as the PGA tour mentioned above, Playa del Carmen has been named Latin America's Golf Capital.
While a good deal of excellent golf real estate is available surrounding these courses, with new options appearing around the new Nick Price course, among others, the villas mentioned in this article hold a distinct advantage; while they are located in close proximity to two of the area's finest courses, they are lower priced since they are not located directly within a "golf course development."
At the same time they offer many of the same benefits that the golf course communities include. They are gated, they have bike trails, plenty of green areas, a nice visual setting, upscale, "exclusive properties and close access to the beach.
Furthermore, the addition of new golf courses, along with the ongoing development of upscale resorts, can be expected to bring up the value of properties in the north part of Playa del Carmen; more golf course development is expected for the future. In the case of the community where these villas are located, it is still new and the continued development will likewise tend to increase the value.
The opening of the new Nick Price golf course near these Playa del Carmen villas is one important event in the emergence of this part of Playa del Carmen and an important factor in the value of the properties, both in terms of lifestyle and in terms of investment.
