In the Puerto Vallarta and Riviera Nayarit area there are several world-class golf courses:
–Marina Vallarta Golf Club
–Vista Vallarta Golf Club
–Flamingos Golf Club
These courses have been designed by some of the most recognized worldwide such as Jack Nicklaus, Tom Weiskpof.
Marina Vallarta Golf Club
This golf course offers 18 holes and is located in Marina Vallarta, one of the most prestigious areas in the city. It was designed by American architect Joe Finger, with a view to Banderas bay and natural obstacles such as palm trees, plants and ponds, making this place one of the most popular choices, thanks to its proximity within the city.
Vista Vallarta Golf Club
This course actually offers two options within the complex, one was designed by Jack Nicklaus and the other by Tom Weiskopf, both during 2001.
The first opening was from Jack Nicklaus in April 2001 and was part of the 2002 PGA World Cup.
This spectacular golf sourse quickly became a favorite, thanks to the spectacular views overlooking the sierra mountains that provide a cool breeze, and obviously the design that tests the skills of any golfer. Without any doubt, this should be a must for golf enthusiasts in Puerto Vallarta.
Without leaving Vista Vallarta Golf Club we will find the second course, designed by Tom Weiskpof for the EMC World Cup 2002, although inaugurated in November 2001. The greens are superb with the sea breeze fully coming up to the foothills of the Sierra Madre, a beautiful and challenging course that will make you want to return to Puerto Vallarta.
Flamingos Golf Club (Percy J. Clifford)
One of the first fields in the bay, the Flamingos Golf Club keeps busy after several years of being established in the currently area known as Riviera Nayarit.
This course has more than 72 acres surrounded by orange, lemon and mango trees. The fairways are visually exciting, with the dose of challenge that you want to find in a course for players of all levels. Flamingos Golf Club is located between Puerto Vallarta and Bucerías, in Riviera Nayarit, so the location is excellent for guests from both areas.
