Vidanta PV the Norman Course

Course is in excellent condition. Quite challenging from the blue tees given the wind. Although not needed, the mandatory fore caddy’s were good. Get there plenty early for your tee time as it is a long ride to the driving range/ 1st tee.

Good Fun

Not the toughest course around. However play it in the afternoon when the wind comes up and it shows it’s teeth. Playing with caddies really helps. They are all good players and really help on the very quick greens. Drinks cart not always around and very expensive.

Very Green

We were impressed how green the fairways and greens were. It is a very well maintained course. I initially did not realize it was mandatory to have a caddie and was apprehensive about it. It turned out to be a wonderful experience.Hector was very helpful and fun.
They had sanded the greens recently , some still had quite a bit left on them. It sort of tripped up a few putts. Other than that, it was a perfect golf experience.
We booked through Golf Now for a hot deal special on the price. Caddie extra.

Great Course in Puerto Vallarta

The course was in great shape. Booked a tee time on Golf Now at 2:00 for $70.00 which was a great deal. Fernando was our caddy and did an excellent job with yardages and reading putts. Saw a ton of wildlife including some crocs. The suspension bridge across the river to the first tee was amazing as well. Would definitely play here again.

Great time

Course was dry, but learned to hit in front of green and allow to bounce on. Greens were very fast. Our caddie Rosy was excellent and spoke excellent English. Said he had caddied once for Arnold Palmer. I believed him.

Excellent Course

Played as a solo and had a good day. My game wasn’t at its best but had a good time. Jose was my caddy and did an excellent job. I would request him again. Fairways were great. Greens were firm but fair. I would return again!

Norman Course - Great track

Booked on GolfNow and saved a little. The rental clubs were good although I wish the staff would have told me they had stiff shaft available. Other than that it was a nice practice facility, good cart, and outstanding caddie (Rosy). He gets a 5+ star rating.
The course isn’t easy but not over the top tough. Lots of water and even a handful of crocodiles, not something we see many of in Canada, lol.
I’d play it again.

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!

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
