Vidanta Announces Grand Opening of the Lakes Course

Vidanta Announces Grand Opening of the Lakes Course at Vidanta Nuevo Vallarta

03 / Oct / 2017

Nuevo Vallarta, Nayarit, MX (October 3rd, 2017) – Vidanta Golf, Grupo Vidanta’s golf course developer, with KemperSports, the leading golf management company in North America, celebrated the opening of The Lakes Course, the third golf experience at Vidanta Nuevo Vallarta, on Friday, September 22nd.

Mexico’s leading golf course operator and developer, Vidanta Golf, partnered with Chet Williams, a long-time member of the Jack Nicklaus Design group, to develop the unique and fun-filled ten hole, lighted, par three The Lakes Course. It joins the renowned Norman Signature Course and the Nicklaus Design Course as the expansive destination’s third golf venue, now giving guests the option of a shorter, walking-only course to play during their stay by day or night.

“As demonstrated by our track record, Vidanta is consistently at the forefront of golf development and tourism,” said Iván Chávez, Executive Vice President of Grupo Vidanta. “We are committed to bringing the very best in the industry to our guests, which is why we have developed this first-of-its-kind lighted short course experience.”

The Lakes Course was inspired by some of the finest short courses at world-class venues like Augusta National and Bandon Dunes, and includes scenic forced carries over small lakes and bunkers on almost all of the ten holes. As a walking-only layout with the longest tee shot at just over 160 yards, the course offers guests the option of taking walking quiver bags supplied at the golf shop for easier club management. The lighted layout also provides a great new entertainment option for guests who prefer an evening round. The course is designed in a natural valley in the center of the resort, below many of Vidanta’s magnificent wooden walking paths, and provides a stadium-like atmosphere for bystanders and passersby. It features Emerald Paspalum grass throughout, with incredible floral landscapes framing each hole and the surrounding hillsides. The course will be open daily for resort guests and public play, and tee times will be available by phone or online with priority given to Vida Vacations private club members and guests.

The debut of The Lakes Course adds to the prestigious recognition of the Vidanta Golf portfolio, which includes the Nicklaus Design Course, the Norman Signature Course and the Jack Nicklaus Academy of Golf that earned Vidanta Nuevo Vallarta “Silver Medal Resort” status by Golf magazine, and the Nicklaus Design Course at Vidanta Puerto Peñasco, named one of the best 20 courses in Mexico and the Caribbean by Golfweek.
