Puerto Vallarta – Three Must-Play Golf Courses – Casa Bay Villas

While Puerto Vallarta is best known for white-sand beaches, tropical weather, and beach vacation getaways, one of its most striking assets is the selection of world-class golf courses found here.

Some of the world’s greatest golf course architects have chosen to design courses in Puerto Vallarta, including Jack Nicklaus, Tom Weiskopf, and Joe Finger, making it one of Mexico’s leading golf vacation destinations.

With the Sierra Madre Mountains and the Mexican Pacific providing a stunning tropical backdrop, golfing in Puerto Vallarta is truly a spectacular experience. Here, we take a look at three golf courses that are perfect for those looking to spend as little time as possible sitting poolside at a resort.

Whether taking a golf clinic or spending a day on the course, visitors who are “hooked” on this sport can practice their skills on one of the exclusive courses that were designed by the game’s legends and that have hosted important golf tournaments such as the PGA and The Masters, among others.

MARINA VALLARTA GOLF CLUB – Marina Vallarta Golf Club is unique among resort golf courses in Mexico because it has integrated the area’s beautiful natural landscape with a layout designed to test golfing skills. Fragrant tropical plants and an unequaled view of the Pacific coastline often defy golfers’ perceptions of distances and their ability to concentrate on the game – a challenge for all levels of golfers from the advanced player to the casual player.

The facilities include a driving range and chipping putting green, a golf shop, and a full-service clubhouse. The golf course is a part of the luxurious Marina Vallarta hotel and condominium complex and is only a short walk from such hotels as the Westin Regina Resort, the Melia, Velas Vallarta, and the Marriott, among others.

Marina Vallarta Golf Club is located at Paseo de la Marina 430 • Telephone: 322-221-0073

VISTA VALLARTA – Spread across 478 acres, the Vista Vallarta Club de Golf encompasses two 18-hole, par 72 championship golf courses: the first is a Signature Golf Course Design by golf legend Jack Nicklaus, and the neighboring course is a Signature Course Design by golf great Tom Weiskopf. The Club’s services include complete practice facilities, and a luxurious clubhouse with a restaurant, bar and lounge, verandas, a fully stocked golf shop, and on-course beverage service.

Campo Vista Vallarta – Jack Nicklaus – Opened in April 2001, the Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Course is located on the property’s highest elevation, offering breathtaking views of Puerto Vallarta, the Marina, and the Bay of Banderas. Grassy hillsides, dense forest of palm, giant ficus trees, and natural creeks provide the setting for this world-class course. Considered by many local and expert golfers as the best in Puerto Vallarta and among the top 10 golf courses in Mexico for its difficulty and pleasant atmosphere, its wide fairways invite you to play this sport and forget about stress.

Vista Vallarta Course – Tom Weiskopf – Opened in November 2001, the Tom Weiskopf Signature Course offers a dramatic contrast from the Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Course. Located on the west-end of the Vallarta Vista property, the golf course is built on extreme terrain with dense jungles, deep ravines, and swift creeks. The course plays through towering forests of palms and Papillae trees and across deep natural ravines and swift creeks that are characteristic of the properties lowest elevations. Weiskopf has done a masterful job of blending the elevations and natural features to create the ultimate golf experience. The holes are designed to suit every level of a golfer on both courses, from amateurs to professionals.
