Golfers are treated not only to world class golf but will enjoy breathtaking views of Puerto Vallarta, the Marina, and Banderas Bay as well. Grassy hillsides, dense forest of Palm and giant Ficus trees, natural creeks and arroyos provide the perfect setting for this world-class course by the world’s greatest player. perched atop the property’s highest elevation, offering spectacular views of Puerto Vallarta and the Bay of Banderas. The course tumbles across grassy hillsides covered with dense forests of palms and giant ficus trees.

Weiskopf Course. The second golf course at Vista Vallarta, at the foothills of the lush rainforests, just 10 minutes away from the Marina Vallarta. 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 playable experience… from the first tee to the green of the “driveable” 18th. The Weiskopf Course at Vista Vallarta looks like it was hacked from the jungle by machete—a whole lot of them. It’s similar to the Nicklaus Course on the same property, but Weiskopf’s design gets the nod because its manageable green complexes make it more fun to play. As you step onto the course and see the dense jungles that sprawl across deep ravine
