Tres Marias Residential Golf Club is a 27 hole golf club and residence located in the city of Morelia which is situated in the Western State of Michoacán, Mexico. The Tres Marias Golf course was designed by American golfer and course designer Jack Nicklaus and built in 2002. The Tres Marias Residential Golf Club extends 550 hectares and is covered by a terrain of cliffs, lakes, and rivers. The name "Tres Marias" was given to the golf club as a result of the formation of three rocks in rock monoliths.
