Rating 73.1

Marina Vallarta Golf Club is known for its stunning tropical landscape that is home to an abundance of wildlife. Golfers have the opportunity to play amongst iguanas and alligators while enjoying scenic views of the Bay of Banderas. The course is blessed with a bevy of natural hazards including towering palm trees, lagoons, and waterfalls. Colorful tropical flowers and native vegetation further accent the landscape. In addition to the natural hazards, there are also a few strategically placed bunkers along the greensides. The golf course offers a challenging but fair test that is not overly demanding, which is probably for the best since it is easy to get distracted by the beautiful surroundings. Given its versatility and scenery, Marina Vallarta G.C. has become a popular venue for various golfing events, including the Governor's Cup Pro/Am Tournament.

Great golf

We love playing at Marina Golf. It’s always a special treat to see the crocodile sunning on the course. It’s kind of pricey for this time of year, but it doesn’t keep us from playing and having a good time.

Always fun

We have played Marina Golf course five times in past 10 days. It is always a challenge, always fun, never crowded, and has the most personable staff at any course we play. So if you’re debating playing, don’t debate anymore and book a tee time.

Always fun golf

We have been playing golf at the Marina course for a few years. They always are working to improve the facility and grounds. This year the clubhouse, pro shop and indoor restrooms were all remodeled. The course definitely needed more water in certain areas, but that didn’t prevent having fun. We never have to worry about pace of play because we are usually the only ones playing. We love Marina golf.

Nice but empty

All Mexico courses in pv are to expensive to play at regular price, if they would lower to reasonably priced rate more people would play. Sad to see them empty! Finish a round before 5 o’clock and clubhouse lounge closed and nobody on course. They either don’t know the revenue they could make or don’t care! Great staff willing to do anything for you because it is hard to get tips from nowbody there

Exageration

This course is to expensive and in no way a good bang for the buck. The personnel in the Pro shop is quite indépendant and focuses mostly on charging the maximum for services. Other personnel are friendly and helpful (bag shop, marshal , course attendants). My wife and I had not brought our own golf clubs so we wanted to rent a set for the both of us. No way. They forced us to rent two sets. They said: course policy. Bull. We almost canceled, but they could not care less. We won’t be back.

First Time Playing

Un parcours à jouer si vous trouvez un départ à rabais seulement

Bon dessin de parcours. Entretien manque un peu d'amour. Terrain de pratique ou le bois de départ n'est pas autorisé. Temps de jeu rapide en après-midi. Utile pour qui veut jouer à proximité du centre-ville. Rapport qualité/prix selon la proximité de la ville pour qui n'a pas de voiture pour se déplacer.

Challenging but enjoyable

This course is a great layout however you have to be able to hit the ball straight because the fairways are narrow and very challenging but enjoyable. The Front nine has a lot of water. Too bad the cost of golf is expensive in Puerto Vallarta

Great people and service

As usual Marina Vallarta course had very good service and friendly staff. The course was in pretty good shape although some of the tee boxes were in need of repair or at least more water.

Very challenging. Greens were better than I thought they would be.

The price with GolfNow was good. GReens are very good. Not long but tight with hazards. I’ll play there again.
