Mayakoba Masters of Food, Wine & Golf Kicks Off in the Riviera Maya
To be held from June 2-5, the Mayakoba Masters of Food, Wine & Golf kicked off yesterday in the eco-friendly resort development of Mayakoba. The event, which has already sold out, includes culinary creations by some of the top international chefs, wine and tequila tastings, a golf clinic by master Jim Mclean, and rounds of golf on the championship Mayakoba golf course.
Mayakoba is the epitome of refined luxury in the Riviera Maya, and the brains behind the 5-star beauty just keep raising the bar. Home to a spectacular 18-hole golf course as well as four luxurious hotels—Fairmont Mayakoba, Rosewood Mayakoba, Banyan Tree Mayakoba and Andaz Mayakoba (opening Fall 2016)—the latest addition to the impressive Mayakoba portfolio of properties and events now includes the 1st annual Mayakoba Masters of Food, Wine & Golf.
Master golf instructor Jim Mclean kicked off the event with a special clinic on the El Camaleon golf course. Designed by Greg Norman, El Camaleon is home to the only PGA TOUR event in Mexico: The OHL Classic at Mayakoba.
The culinary aspect of the Mayakoba Masters of Food, Wine & Golf got cooking in the evening at Rosewood Mayakoba’s outdoor palapa with culinary treats and spirit pairings from an amazing array of guest chefs, winemakers, sommeliers, tequila masters and artisanal brewers.
The best, however, is yet to come.
