The Punta Mita area has become known as the premier golfing destination in Mexico and one of the preferred destinations for golfers from around the world. The secret to these courses' success resides in the combination of magnificent surroundings including mountains, tropical forests and beaches, with the incredible design of masters such as Jack Nicklaus, Greg Norman, Robert von Hagge and Thomas Weiskopf.
Punta Mita Pacifico Course:
18 holes - par 72 (optional par 3 Island hole)
- Designer: Jack Nicklaus
In June 2008, Pacifico Golf Course was named the number one golf course in the world by the readers of Conde Nast Traveler. The Pacifico course offers stunning views, with eight oceanside holes. Its defining feature is the one-of-a-kind alternate Hole 3b, called Tail of the Whale, next to Palmasola. Players tee off from the shore to the hole 199 yards away on a natural island in the Pacific Ocean (directly in front of Palmasola). At low tide, a submerged stone path to the green becomes passable.
Punta Mita Bahia Course: 18 holes - par 72 - Designer: Jack Nicklaus
Stretching 7,035 yards, this par-72 course features Miniverde greens constructed to USGA standards, Bermuda fairways and lush tropical landscaping. Its layout includes five par 3s, eight par 4s and five par 5s. In contrast to the original course, the Bahia Golf Course offers more undulating fairways and greens, making putting technique an important part of the playing experience. The course features stunning lakes and water features and offers stunning views of the Bay of Banderas.
Litibu Golf Course – Litibu: 18 holes – par 72 Designer: Greg Norman
Newly opened in March of 2010; golf enthusiasts now enjoy 3 world-class golf resorts within 10 minutes of Palmasola. Designed by Greg Norman, its challenging layout gives players a mixture of links, style, and holes spreading through virgin jungle surroundings with impressive views of the Pacific Ocean spread over 168 acres.
El Tigre Club de Golf Paradise Village - Nuevo Vallarta:
18 holes - par 72 - Designer: Robert Von Hagge Group
The experience begins upon arrival, as golfers pass through an impressive stone archway resembling a Mayan temple, beside which a real Bengal tiger lives securely in his habitat. The course hosts a good variety of holes, although if you don't like water hazards this isn't your course. Not a course you can easily play on the ground, although if you play the forward tees, there are opportunities to do just that - all except the island green par-3 sixth. This course hosts several tournaments.
Vista Vallarta Club de Golf - Puerto Vallarta:
Two 18-hole courses-each par 72 - Designers: Tom Weiskopf, Jack Nicklaus
Vista Vallarta features two distinct designers. Weiskopf retained much of the original landscape, making modifications only to accommodate the game leaving the overall feel very natural. Nicklaus likes to start with a clean slate, so he clears the way to create wider greens. In fact, his stadium effect makes this a perfect fit for the World Cup and other competitions. It's a great course to see golf as a spectator.
