Puerto Vallarta: A Premium Destination For Golf Enthusiasts

Published: August 30, 2022 Author: Puerto Vallarta Villas Under categories:

If you are a golf enthusiast, Puerto Vallarta is one of the sports premium destinations in Mexico.

With over ten outstanding courses to choose from, playing a round or two should be high on your list of things to do when visiting Banderas Bay. Puerto Vallarta golf has several championship courses available, and difficulty levels can range from intermediate to challenging, with each surrounded by stunning ocean or jungle views that will take your mind off your game if you hit a bogey or two.   

 As well as championship golf courses, Puerto Vallarta has hosted the PGA Mexico Open at Vidanta Vallarta and is home to a long-standing pro-am featuring 500 participants, including PGA tour and Senior tour players.   

 Here are a few of Vallarta’s eye-catching golf courses: 

Vidanta Vallarta  

The Vidanta Vallarta resort includes three golf courses and a golf academy.  

The Norman Signature Course  

Designed by double major winner Greg Norman, the Norman Signature Course is a challenging 18-hole, par 73, with six lakes and 55 bunkers sprinkled around the championship course.  

The Nayar Course 

The second championship course at the Vidanta resort is a demanding course measuring 6668 yards. Stunning mountain and jungle views will greet you as you navigate your play around seven lakes and 49 sand traps.  

The Lakes Course 

The Lakes Course at the Vidanta is fully lit and perfect for playing during the evening or twilight hours. This small ten-hole, par three course is ideal for all skill levels, including beginners.  

Flamingos Golf Course 

Located in Bucerias, Flamingos is an 18-hole championship course with narrow fairways and quick greens, surrounded by palm trees, water hazards, and bunkers. Flamingos Golf also has a 230-yard long practice range and putting green facilities. 

Just Want To Practice? 

While your main aim will be to play some of Puerto Vallarta’s stunning golf courses, if your time is limited and you still want to practice your swing, hone your putting skills or lower your handicap, most golf clubs offer a driving range or putting or practice greens.
