GOLF: VISTA VALLARTA COURSE
Conceived and developed by Club Corp International from Dallas, Texas, Vista Vallarta is destined to become the premier golf destination in Mexico.
Opened April 2001, the first course at Vista Vallarta is a Signature Design by Jack Nicklaus.(18 holes, 72 par) Since this course is located on the property’s highest elevation, golfers are treated not only to world class golf but will enjoy breathtaking views of Puerto Vallarta, the Marina and Banderas Bay as well.
The second course (18 holes, par 72) opened in November 2001. This signature Designed by Tom Weiskopf provides Vista Vallarta with a dramatic contrast from its first course. Built on the property’s lower west end, golfers won’t believe they have simply taken a different turn from the club house. Here the terrain is extreme with dense jungles, deep ravines and swift creeks. Mr. Weiskopf has done a masterful job of blending the elevations and natural features into an incredibly unique playing experience, from the first tee to the lush green of the “drivable” eighteenth.
Not to be outdone by the golf course architects, Gomez Vazquez Associates from Guadalajara has designed Vista Vallarta’s club house in the traditional style of the region. The 13,000 square feet “Casa Club” includes every modern convenience with the warmth and Old World charm of a Mexican Hacienda.
