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.

Pleasant and relaxed

Booked with Golf Now one day previous... lots of availability, which worried me. Came in as a single, ordered a cofee to go... mostly couples in front of me and one Foursone behind. No waiting around trees, which was good and when caught up was asked to go ahead. Hired a caddy... got a nice older fellow, Angel, who was very relaxed helpful and knowledgeable about the course. Course was not difficult even with the water holes. Played in the sand some which was fairly rough and pebbly.... the cart Ladies where excellent and the food delivery was great. It is a decent course with some challenging holes., greens are small to medium size, not supper fast on this day and fairways where in good shape. Fun course if you want to relax in PV...a few small Crocs was fun to observe.

This course is tight.

An interesting layout that winds through a residential neighbourhood. The fairways are on the narrow side and the tall palms make some of them feel like chutes. The layout makes you hit plenty of irons off the tee to a location before attacking the green. Also, the greens are average to small and run pretty fast so you have to be accurate. Lots of false fronts that kick your ball back or off to the side. There is no shortage of water on the course so again accuracy is key here.

The Marina course

My wife and I had a lot of fun playing the marina course in Puerto Vallarta. It’s pretty narrow with a lot of water and fast greens. Lots of interesting holes. It should be easier the second time because the layout is a mystery having not played it before. Don’t expect to Fish balls out of the water Unless you feel like contending with 5 m crocodiles. Bring extras.

Decent Course

Played it day after a big rainstorm so conditions were a little wet but overall In ok shape. Unlimited range balls is a real plus since I hadn’t played in a few months. . Caddies are optional.

Great day at PV Marina

A challenging course layout with enough sand and water to keep you on your toes. Fairways firm, greens fast and in good shape.

Our foursome had a great day!

Fun course

Marina Vallarta is always fun to play and super convenient to get to from town. While the fairways and rough are not perfect (with different types of grass throughout the course), the layout makes up for it. Almost a guarantee you will see Crocs.
