Staying at an all-inclusive resort in Mexico usually means overindulging on food and drink. You can overindulge on golf, too, at Casa Velas, an adults-only hotel in Puerto Vallarta that offers all-you-can-golf opportunities at three courses owned by ClubCorp.
The new Greg Norman Signature Course at Vidanta Nuevo Vallarta is infinitely playable for resort duffers, but strong enough to give Vidanta Golf's stable of PGA Tour pros a good workout.
Just three years old, the Vista Vallarta Golf Club in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, is already building an impressive resume of tournaments it's hosted. From the 2002 EMC World Golf Championships to the Ford U.S. Collegiate Golf Championships, Vista Vallarta has put this region of Mexico in the Sierra Madre Mountains on the map. The course's success is due in large part to Jack Nicklaus' design, Staff Writer Steve Rocca reports.
While not as well known, the Tom Weiskopf course built in the rugged, dense jungle terrain of Mexico is making a name for itself. The challenging layout, which presents scenic views as it winds through the jungly foothills of the Sierra Madre Mountains, offers just as much of a challenge as the Nicklaus course on the other side of the property at scenic Vista Vallarta Golf Club.
This tourist hot spot on Mexico's Pacific Coast might be best-known as a beach destination, but Vista Vallarta Golf Club -- where Jack Nicklaus designed one championship-calibre course and Tom Weiskopf mapped out another -- is proof the intrigue doesn't end at the shoreline. You'll be surrounded by thick and tangled vegetation, the side of this sun-spot that most of the tourists never see.
