Fairmont Acapulco Princess Unveils New 18-Hole Championship Golf Course



Turtle Dunes Country Club is The Fairmont Acapulco Princess’ latest venture. The championship golf course was unveiled at Turtle Dunes, an exclusive, full-service country club located on the grounds of the Fairmont Acapulco Princess.

The club will be exclusive to members and guests of The Fairmont Acapulco Princess and The Fairmont Pierre Marques. Turtle Dunes is set among ocean sand dunes and is surrounded by a lush tropical sanctuary. It was designed by golf course architect Tripp Davis and features 7,200 yards on a par 72 golf course. The course showcases expansive water features, towering parota trees and colorful bougainvillea that frame many of the holes. 

Turtle Dunes Country Club is home to the Ochoa Golf Academy, which provides learning tools to those looking to perfect their craft. A variety of customized golf outings for groups are available including clinics, instruction, tournaments and events.

Turtle Dunes Country Club recently hosted their annual Skills Challenge event with Lorena Ochoa. During this event, Turtle Dunes officially announced and launched a new partnership with DIF Acapulco, the National System for Integral Family Development, as an initiative to work with underprivileged children between the ages of 8 and 12 by offering weekly complimentary Golf Clinics. Lorena Ochoa was personally there to launch this partnership and instructed over 40 local children.
