El Tigre Club de Golf
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.

I booked a tee time on Golfnow for the afternoon as the twilight rate was much cheaper. It’s my belief that all the courses in the area are overpriced after November 1st. The weather has been unseasonably cool, so the afternoon round was completely doable. My first time at the course. Staff was friendly and very helpful. Nice bar and clubhouse. The course is well laid out and is long so you get your monies worth. Lots of water along with a signature par three island green on the front nine. The course is well maintained and enjoyed our afternoon. Played 18 in 2.5 hours. I will definitely go back but would honestly not pay full price for a morning tee time. The $79 dollar deal on GN for a 1:20 tee time was well with it though.
Fourth time I have [played here, one of the best courses in Mexico!
Always a blast playing this course. Long but fun. I hit the island green today. Just missed the birdie. Oh well, few more rounds to go
Staff are very friendly from check in to the club cleaning. The sand traps need refurbishing with new liners.
Quick Round of 18
Staff very welcoming and helpful, started right on time and finished round in 4 hours so pace of play was great. Course is fair and the fairways and greens are in reasonably good shape. Would definitely play again! Only complaint was overpriced rental clubs.
The fairway bunkers could use some attention. Great staff, from the check in to the club cleaners. Everyone is pleasant and eager to ensure your experience is first rate. We will be back.
Beautiful and challenging course
El Tigre is really beautiful. Plenty of water and open fairways. On many holes the water draws your ball, never to be seen again, so bring extras. The on cart GPS is nice but annoyingly disables the cart when you are exiting the fairway at the designated exits. That should be corrected, but you learn quickly to swing wide for the exits. The restaurant has a great vegan sandwich along with the rest of the menu. The beverage cart is always around and such nice ladies. There’s water bottles in the cooler and they will bring more if you run out. At the end of the round your shoes and clubs are cleaned. A very enjoyable day.
