Vista Vallarta Golf Club offers two championship courses, one designed by Jack Nicklaus and the other by Tom Weiskopf. The Weiskopf Course provides a dramatically different round from the Nicklaus design. The other golf course sits atop the property's highest elevation while this one is situated at the lower west end. As you step onto the course and see the dense jungles that sprawl across deep ravines, you will hardly believe that it is still the same property. It offers the same level of challenge as the Nicklaus Course but some high handicappers prefer this one since there are fewer blind shots and the greens are more receptive, making them not quite as tricky. The 15th is an uphill par 3 that is probably the golf course's most memorable hole. This challenging hole requires a carry past a ravine to multi-tiered green that is surrounded by bunkers on all sides.

Vista Vallarta

Course is in great shape, and amazing views. For some reason the inexperienced staff pulls the pins so there is no flag to look at from the fairway

Bring your clubs to Puerta Vallarta

This is a great course, cut out of the jungle, with a lot of changing elevations. The course is in great shape. I highly recommend Angel as your fore caddie, he saved us a lot of stroke on the green. It’s a very scenic course, near the foothills of the mountains. Met some great people on the course. Bartender makes a great limeade and vodka. The practice facilities are wonderful, too.

A must

If you want to get away from flat or hilly courses, this is an experience. Amid the jungle, ravines, and wild animal sounds. I would recommend it as it is tough but playable.

One Of My Favorites

The Course is great fits My eye I prefer it Over the Nicklaus Course. Tighter Off the TEE THAN THE Nicklaus Course But More Fair and Not as Tough. The Greens are Challenging But Nothing like the Nicklaus Course. We Took a Caddy This Time. The Only Need for a Caddy is to Read the greens. With the Mountains and water the toughest challenge for Both Courses is the Green reading and the Caddy wasn’t very helpful in his greens, After 10 holes I was ignoring him going on my own. Definitely worth playing both Courses.

Weiskopf Design are the best in the west

Great layout in an unbelievable environment with lots of greenside contours. Greens are very receptive, fast, and not easy to read with the mountain and strong grain.

I would be a member at this course with is in my Top 10 courses I ever played after 40 years as a Pro.

Wonderful track!

The check-in was very friendly & professional, my clubs were loaded directly from the taxi to the cart during check-in. I was nicely helped get ready for the round by staff & the starter came over as I was wrapping up on the range to provide help for me on the course since I haven't played it before. I found the course to be in excellent condition, greens were fair & just the right speed. My only regret was allowing the twosome behind me to play through on the first par three & then waiting for them to play on nearly every shot.
