Type Semi-Private
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.

Be ready for water!

This is a beautiful course and the greens were great. The fairways are tight with water and long bunkers lateral to most holes. Not good for a beginner for sure. My son enjoyed it and it was challenging for him at intermediate status. Recommend it for sure. Book through your hotel or look for Golf now discounts....

Immaculate course with wild wildlife!

I played El Tigre about 10 years ago and was not impressed. This time I was! The course is now well groomed. The greens held well and rolled true. Lots of water, countless sand traps and numerous trees created challenges for each hole. Iguanas the size of gators roam the fairways along with a wide range of species of cranes, egrets, wild ducks and exotic birds. Service was excellent, including a ranger that provides fresh water and asks if you are enjoying your round. Except for my score on this difficult course, I couldn't have asked for a more rewarding experience!

El Tigre is a good course

First round at this course. Its not too tough but it is wonderfully scenic and well located near Paradise Village. The golf shop staff were great and the starters were helpful, but could easily have done a better job of being welcoming and friendly. They did not really explain where the practice facility was located.

They did provide lots of water on a hot tropical day. WHich was nice.

el tigre in august

We play at El Tigre at least two times a year and always enjoy ourselves. The staff is excellent and I would highly recommend a lesson from the Pro Hector Rodriguez. We play 18 holes and in August the course is empty so can finish in 3.5 hours no problema.

beware of the mosquitos!

This is a very fun and well-groomed course. Lots of water & sand! My wife and I made the mistake of booking the very first tee-time to try and avoid the extreme heat, but had to deal with lots of pesky mosquitos for the first hour. Wait until 9am to tee off and you will not be bothered. Hole number 6 is an AMAZING Par 3 with an island green! Golf carts come with green fees and include GPS as well as way to order beverages, etc. The fees are pretty high, unless you are a member of Paradise Village or Playa Royale.

This is a fun course

Get your hands on a golf now hot deal and this is an excellent experience. I wouldn't pay the $175 to play it but I got a great rate and had a great time. Great service and great facilities. I was dissapointed with the greens with excessive amounts of sand on them but I hear it was end of season so just be aware. I would also recommend that you view all large bunkers as waste bunkers. Not much sand and lots of rocks and debris that you don't want to hit out of. Fun challenging layout.

A great layout in average condition

A great layout that was in very average condition, especially for the price. I don't think they get very much non member play. Grass driving range, bunker and large putting green. The course winds through homes and has many water hazards in play. If it was in better condition it would be a destination course. Greens had some goose grass in them, were thin in some spots and a bit on the slow side. Good roll in the fairways and while thin in a few spots I never really had a bad lie. GPS carts. Pace was fantastic, we went out as a twosome about a half hour after a bunch of member foursomes and never caught up until the 16th hole. Just in time to check out the caged animals by the 16th green and the Bengal Tigers (El Tigre) behind the 17th tee. Lots of Iguanas to be seen on the course too. A very affordable restaurant with a patio overlooking the 18th hole

Great Value

Course was in very good shape. We virtually had the course to ourselves. Played in under 4 hours which is how golf was meant to be played. If El Tigre would offer more tee times with deals they would attract more golfers.
