Located in Nuevo Vallarta, El Tigre Club de Golf enjoys views that stretch to the western Sierra Madre. The design team of Robert Von Hagge, Mike Smelek, and Rick Baril transformed what used to be a flat piece of land into a lush, tropical paradise. Nine water features were added, which come into play on 12 holes, and the terrain was molded and contoured to provide interesting elevation changes. The golf course's proximity to the ocean means that it is also subject to strong prevailing winds, especially in the early evening. The course finishes with two of its most difficult holes. El Tigre Club de Golf's par-3 17th has plenty of sand and water in play to prepare you for the beastly par-5 finishing hole. This 621-yard monster is practically a par 6 with water down the entire left side and a green surrounded by sand.

Played several times

Over a number of years we have played El Tigre many times. It is good to see the course back on GolfNow. Our only caution would be that golfers arrange pick up as the taxi took a long time to arrive and was in terrible shape.

Nice, expensive course

Nice track. Good challenge. But not worth the $160usd they want to play it. I’ve played better tracks for less. But that’s golf in the Puerto Vallarta area.

Challenging

Great layout. Water comes in to play in a number of holes. Plays from the whites to 6200 yards. Green side bunkers could use a bit more sand as at times it’s difficult to properly slide the club under due to the minimal amount of “soft” sand.

Tight lies

Course is in good shape but fairways are thin and wet. Tight wet lies everywhere on fairways present a challenge. With water in play on 10 holes any slight miss hit costs you. Greens were very good and fast. Great layout, just need a bit more grass on the fairways.

Nice Vaca Course

El Tigre is a good quality vacation course...challenging layout, in good condition. Greens are in good shape. Not super fast but putt ok. Lots of water and sand. Twilight or Golfnow rates makes it a better value.

Nice Course

Good course. Check in was a bit disorganized but course layout is fantastic. Most holes penalize you with distance for playing safe so if you’re not feeling confident it plays a bit long. Lots of water and many bunkers. Every hole has high end homes. Gated community. Pace was decent for the most part. Unlimited range.

Good fun

Very nice layout with some challenging holes and tough par 3’s. The course is fun to play with many water holes and lots of sand traps. I will be playing it again.

No shortage of water

Challenging layout with water in play on more than half the holes. Nice layout with large speedy greens. When the wind is up you can add 1-2 clubs on the par 3’s

One of our favorite in Puerto Vallarta

El tigrea is a must play every time we com to PV. Not because I got a Hole in one the first time I played either. but I did, and the staff all signed an El tigre flag, which is now framed in my home. the course is perfect with multiple tee boxes to accommodate almost any skill level. the pace of play as always been very good, and this year just over 3 hours. We were allowed to go a little early as the play was ahead of schedule. Staff is always accommodating regardless of ask. Cart people are also fantastic, and some how know exactly when to arrive. Rest Rooms perfectly located and very clean and nice.

If you read this far, you must know, we love the El Tigre, and will likely play it again this week while we are here.

Golf Nuevo Vallarta

The course was in great shape and the pace of play was very fast .we were allowed to go out ahead of our tee time and since we had already hit more than enough range balls we were ready. Cart service was friendly and prompt but not pestering. The course is located very close to all the hotels, it was less than a 10 minute cab ride from ours.
