Vidanta Nuevo Vallarta is as much of a destination for golf lovers as it is for beach and pool lovers! Here, we offer one of the best courses in Mexico, with another underway, and an entire academy dedicated to helping players hone their skills and improve their game.

the Nicklaus Design Golf Course at Vidanta Nuevo Vallarta

Surrounded by lush jungle and the Sierra Madre Mountains on one side and the Pacific Ocean on the other, The Nicklaus Design Golf Course at Vidanta Nuevo Vallarta is a natural and technical masterpiece. This 6,668 yard, par 70 course is a joy to play for every player, from your low to high handicap. But with seven lakes, 49 strategically placed bunkers, and constant, strong crosswinds coming off of the ocean, this course always presents a challenge. And to fine-tune everyone’s game, the nearby Jack Nicklaus Academy of Golf offers an unprecedented level of instruction with state-of-the-art training technology.

First tee time is 7:30 AM.

Book your tee time.
