Golfweek magazine awarded the Nicklaus Design Course at Vidanta Puerto Peñasco #17 on the list of “Best Courses in Mexico and the Caribbean 2019”, marking the third time the amazing layout outside Rocky Point, Mexico has been ranked since 2017. Golfweek’s elite team of course raters, which currently boasts more than 850 evaluators, surveys more than 3,600 courses – grading each nominated course on the basis of Golfweek’s 10 strict standards of evaluation including course conditioning, variety and memorability of holes, and routing. Collectively, these knowledgeable raters turned in more than 75,000 votes to compile Golfweek’s Best courses lists.
“The Nicklaus Course at Vidanta Puerto Peñasco is truly a hidden gem and one of the most stunning courses in the world. We are proud that it has been recognized once again as one of the top courses in Mexico and the Caribbean,” said Ivan Chavez, Executive Vice President of Grupo Vidanta. “This award is evidence of the high standards and quality that Vidanta strives to deliver its guests and visitors.”
