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.

Enjoyable

Due to Covid the range is closed so only chipping and putting available. Only 50 players per day allowed to play.
I played solo and fast. All done in 2hrs 30 mins.
Greens and fairways perfect. Staff friendly and helpful.
Drinks available but a little pricey. Discounted tee time after 2.00 pm but no online booking right now.

Exotic golfing

After hitting three balls out of sand on the first hole and losing one to the alligator habitat on the third, I enjoyed the variety and feel of the course. At times it was like a stroll through an ocean side botanical gardens. Challenging enough for me and very scenic.

A great place for a round in Puerto Vallarta

I play this course all the time. The staff is wonderful, the course is always in really good shape, and the amenities and services are just what you would expect in Puerto Vallarta..

If you're a beginner, this is a good place to get in a round. If you're an intermediate or advanced golfer, you can really enjoy the layout, and make it fit your game.

If you like playing golf with crocodiles, this place is for you.

Nice course - would recommend it.

Played with my wife who is a relatively new golfer. We both enjoyed it very much. Good condition, friendly staff. Not overly busy. Perfect for us. 4 sets of tees boxes to accommodate all handicaps.

Marina Vallarta

Fun track with lots of water and plenty of bunkers! Interesting holes 2-5 that goes through a crocodile habitat. I saw one at 10-12 feet long. Didn’t bother me but was a bit of a shock to see.

OK course in downtown Puerto Vallarta

Good course close to downtown. Condition was fair on the front 9 but improved on back 9. We were around 18 holes in 3.5 hours with a twilight tee time. Lots of alligators and iguanas!!!

Water!!

Greens, tee boxes, and fairways are in good shape. Many greens well-protected by sand and water, lots of water. And I found it! Good value with the Golf Now Hot Deal Price.
