A Puerto Vallarta Golf Course Guide
The golf courses of Puerto Vallarta feature gorgeous backdrops, ranging from oceanfront to jungle. The courses here are all incredibly unique and have their own distinct personalities. For avid golfers, these quality golf courses are well worth a stop when you visit Puerto Vallarta.
Punta Mita has two premier golf courses, Bahia and Pacifico. Jack Nicklaus designed both courses. The highlight of both Bahia and Pacifico is the beautiful scenery. Jack Nicklaus said of Punta Mita, “you would be hard-pressed to ask for a more beautiful backdrop for a golf course than Punta Mita.” With these two courses, golfers relish astonishing oceanfront views and several holes along the ocean edge. Don’t miss out on the optional 19th hole at Pacifico, known as the Tail of the Whale, which is considered one of the most memorable holes in the world.
Designed by Tom Weiskopf, Weiskopf Signature Course is one of two golf courses at Vista Vallarta. While Weiskopf doesn’t provide the ocean views that other courses in the area offer, this 18 hole course has a jungle environment, making it very unique. Golfers describe the course as natural and very fun to play.
The unique thing about Marina Vallarta is its location; you’ll find this 18 hole course in the middle of Puerto Vallarta, which is very convenient for visitors of the area. Though you might expect a more urban course due to its positioning, Marina Vallarta features tropical vegetation and natural lagoons, making it a beautiful place to play a round.
El Tigre is not a course for beginners; known for its difficulty, the Canadien Tour, Futures LPGA, La Gira Mexicana, and other tournaments have been played on this challenging course. Outside of the challenge, El Tigre is also a fun spot to play due to its Mayan-inspired design. Do you have what it takes to tame El Tigre?
