Located in Nuevo Vallarta, El Tigre Club de Golf enjoys views that stretch to the western Sierra Madre. The design team of Robert Von Hagge, Mike Smelek, and Rick Baril transformed what used to be a flat piece of land into a lush, tropical paradise. Nine water features were added, which come into play on 12 holes, and the terrain was molded and contoured to provide interesting elevation changes. The golf course's proximity to the ocean means that it is also subject to strong prevailing winds, especially in the early evening. The course finishes with two of its most difficult holes. El Tigre Club de Golf's par-3 17th has plenty of sand and water in play to prepare you for the beastly par-5 finishing hole. This 621-yard monster is practically a par 6 with water down the entire left side and a green surrounded by sand.

El Tigre

I’ve played here several times over the years. It’s a nice layout, but the course is not in good shape. It’s off peak season but there were several areas where the grass has grown wild. Greens were burnt and damaged.

First time at El Tigre

Very well laid out and challenging due to winds and hazards. Lots of bunkers and water. Greens and fairways a bit burnt out, but overall very acceptable for 80 USD. I would't spend 190 however.

Interesting Layout

Enough risk requires strategic play, but is not intimidating. Would like to play it when the greens haven’t been recently plugged, as they were during our round.

Disappointed

Greens were terrible. Ball bounced everywhere when putting. I had a 2’ putt as soon as I touched it ball shot left. Aeration holes looked like they did it with a shovel. Some grass on the green was as long as the fairway. I’m sure it can play. Much much nicer, just not this time of year. I’m a 3 handicap and rented very nice Titleist clubs. I played very well, but due to the poor greens, couldn’t score. Call first and make sure the place is playable. They probably should just close it down until the greens fill in.

Great course and amenities

Great course with challenging holes. Surrounded by a lot of water and sand. Great scenery. Came with complimentary range balls, tees and water which is nice. I would recommend buying your balls at a store before you come here. They also sell used balls for a cheaper price. We rented our clubs as well for 50 each but we are members of paradise village.

Greens were some of the worst I’ve played in quite some time

Over the course the staff and the fun we had as a group can’t be replaced and it has moments of being great. The greens were chewed up. Some had pebbles on them some had bumps through. My brother in law is a scratch golfer and said for the cost and the green shapes were just not up to par. Also a couple bunkers were full of little pebbles.

El Tigre

Nice course for sure After I checked in the starters were super dis-organized and were letting anyone just tee off whenever - not their fault just under staffed for sure … place of play was kinda slow but typical of course full of retired old guys Some of greens were pretty beaten up which I was surprised to see (not the case at Vidanta next door) Overall challenging course but over priced compared to Vidanta or Vista Vallarta courses Too much sand for my liking but they were super soft - fine sand so very impressed compared to other local courses Clubhouse / Bar shut down before my round even finished - this is typical of PV courses Owners to cheap to pay their staff a few extra hours

Way to expensive

I don't know what is going on in PV, but golf prices have sky rocketed! Last year, I played this course 4 or 5 times for around $65-$75, this year, they want $297! This course is simply not worth over $125, at all... It's an okay course but totally flat and is basic. Fairways are as hard as rocks, so balls roll but the course is brown...
