Very challenging course and fun, our caddy (Jesus) was knowledgeable. Do yourself a favor and book through golf now. We paid much less than at the pro shop.
An OK golf experience
Received a low mid afternoon rate through Golf Now. We were never informed ahead of time or at the time of checking in that the course had been punched. That was not a big deal but not being informed was. All conditions were relatively good except too many fairways had dirt conditions...no grass. The bridge you have to cross to get to the course scared the C... out of me...afraid of heights, YIKES!
Great new course in the area. Very challenging, wonderful views. A bit pricey but got a great hot deal through golf now.
Only 9 holes open
Would be nice to know that only nine holes were open. We would not have booked this course if it would have been listed as only 9 holes open.
Very disappointed with golfnow for this booking
excellent caddy; good condition; and hardly anyone playing the course.
Capitallizing on a name
I chose this course, because it was a Greg Norman Signature course. However, the name is where it ends. Once you got past direction signs to get you the 3 miles to the course on a golf cart. There was nothing else that said Greg Norman. Nothing in the Proshop showed Greg Norman or Jack Nicholas (another signature course on the property).
Most of the staff were very nice and greeted me with a smile. My cashier was having a bad day it seemed, he was a bit grumpy. haha
David my caddy was very knowledgeable of the course and very friendly. I would not of completed the round without him, literally. I started with 3 balls and lost 2 on the 1st water hazard. David was able to find a couple other balls along the way. Website stated there was a $25 mandatory caddy fee paid directly to the caddy, but when I gave David the fee he was very surprised and acted as if he didn't understand why I gave it to him.
The course itself was nice and in good condition for the season. Course was challenging for an below average golfer, but anyone else would score well on it. Lots of water and sand. Greens were very hard and fast. Course was clean and well kept. Played better courses in Las Vegas and NC, played worse courses in both places.
Golfing in Nuevo Vallarta
Greens well cared for. Make sure you make your tee time on line.
Was wide open in April after Easter!
Caddy is mandatory!
My friend and I used the GN app and got a hot deal to play this course. I would have been dissapointed to pay the full morning asking rate here. There was very little to indicate that Greg Norman had anything to do with this course. Course was in very good condition. Greens were not very receptive but they putted fairly true and they were quick. The cart gal and food delivery was excellent. Our Caddie was absolutely excellent. He worked very hard for us.
Tough putting, very fast greens. Good value when using GolfNow hot deals. Paid $75 plus caddie. Not a $250 per person course.
The whole Vidanta resort is very nice. The staff was friendly and the course was nice to play. The greens are extremely fast, even the caddie told me to aim short on every green because its very hard to go pin seeking and get a ball to stop. Some unique and fun holes to play though and the course was in good shape. Bunkers are maintained well and the caddies are very helpful. Caddie "tip" was $25 and the $135 GolfNow hot deal was still a little over priced for this course. I have play a lot of courses better for a lot less, but its a resort in Mexico with a big name (Greg Norman) attached to it. Pro shop had a couple nice things, but not as much as I expected, and also had no souvenir logo golf balls. I have never seen a course not have those...even a low end muni course for $20 has them.
At first glance the Norman course looks wide open , only to find the test on this course is around the green ,
Most are elevated with punishing water or sand traps typical of a Norman layout .
I love the fact you can swing away off the tee and not have to steer your drive ,
Very subtle breaks on the green requires your caddies knowledge, we had Pollo who was perfect except one green
Saved 5 stroke on great reads .
Would play again perhaps not on such a windy day
Loved the course
Greg Norman signature course Jan 20,2018
nuce track, good shape, back nine was very slow, if you’re not good a chipping to elevated greens good luck, greens are a little grainy, but roll true relatively fast my caddy did not seem to know how to read them grain wise and they are Bermuda and like I said a little hairy
