Mazatlán, Mexico’s “Colonial City on the Beach,” has announced that it will host for the third time the Mazatlán Open, one of four PGA Tour Latin America tournaments in Mexico in 2016. The tournament will take place May 26th to 29th, 2016 at the Estrella del Mar Golf and Beach Resort.

“We are thrilled to host for the third time the Mazatlán Open as a stop on the PGA Tour Latino América,” said Rafael Lizárraga, Secretary of Tourism for the region. “With Mazatlán’s beautiful scenery and rich culture, matched with the Tour’s long tradition of excellence, the tournament is sure to bring challenging play to participants and an enjoyable experience for spectators.”

Mazatlán’s Estrella del Mar Golf and Beach Resort is situated on an 816-acre gated community, which includes 3.5 miles of pristine beach overlooking the Pacific Ocean. The resort offers beach access, dramatic ocean views and luxurious accommodations. The 18-hole championship golf course was designed by Robert Trent Jones Jr. and is among the best golf courses in Mexico, with both exceptional play and scenery.

While Mazatlán may be best known for its beaches, it is also recognized for its array of options to entertain even the most experienced golf aficionados. In addition to Estrella del Mar, Mazatlán is home to three more professional golf courses including El Cid (27 holes) designed by Lee Trevino and Marina Mazatlán (18 holes) designed by David Fleming.
