Spread across 550 acres, the Vista Vallarta Golf Club encompasses two 18-hole, 72-par championship golf courses: the first is a signature design by golf great Jack Nicklaus, and the neighboring course is a signature design by golf legend Tom Weiskopf. Conceived and developed by Dallas-based ClubCorp International, Vista Vallarta Golf Club was designed to become Mexico's premier golf destination.
Opened in April 2001, the Jack Nicklaus Signature Course is located on the property's highest elevation, offering breathtaking views of Puerto Vallarta, the Marina and Banderas Bay. Grassy hillsides, dense forest of palms, giant Ficus trees and natural creeks provide the setting for this world-class course.
Opened November 1, 2001, the Tom Weiskopf Signature Course offers a dramatic contrast from the Jack Nicklaus Signature course. Located on the West end of the Vista Vallarta golf course, it was built on extreme terrain with dense jungles, deep ravines and swift creeks. Weiskopf has done a masterful job of blending the elevations and natural features to create the ultimate golf experience.
There are holes designed to suit every level of golfer on both courses, from amateurs to professionals. The construction of the Vista Vallarta championship courses is already attracting major golf tournaments to the region, and the excitement surrounding the future of golf in Puerto Vallarta is felt throughout the region. The Club's services include complete practice facilities, a luxurious clubhouse with restaurant, bar and lounge, verandas, fully stocked golf shop, and on course beverage service.
In addition to the future World Golf Championship, Vista Vallarta's championship courses have already drawn major golf tournaments to the region including the Ford U.S. Collegiate Golf Championships, which took place April 4-8, 2001. Previously won by Tiger Woods, this premier college golfing event is the only televised college golf tournament of the year and was broadcast on ESPN. Come and play golf in Puerto Vallarta and bring out the pro in you.
