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.

No T-Time

When we showed up the club house did not have our T-Time in their system.

They managed to find us a spot and we played our 18 holes so we are glad about that.

Disappointed

We tried to check in 2 hours early as we hadn’t played in 2 months. We were told that we couldn’t check in until 40 minutes before our tee time. However they only gave us one voucher so after trying to get a cart, we were sent back to the pro shop for a 2nd voucher. After this debacle, we were left with 25 minutes to warm up.

The drink carts only had beer & hard alcohol, no juices or mixed drinks.

By the time we finished, everything on the course was closed, which was disappointing.

Great Course!

I had a great round here, even with my high handicap. Beautiful course, not for the faint of heart. Lots or bunkers and sharp turns. The water features everywhere are super challenging. I recommend playing a round here!

Good layout, poor pace of play

We played El Tigre recently on a trip to Nuevo. Overall we like the layout although the condition of the course was not what we expected. Greens were fine, tee boxes poor and fairways acceptable. We were behind two slow groups so played in just under 5 hours. The Gps kept saying we were behind and might need to skip a hole but no marshal was to be found to enforce that on the slow groups in front.

It was fine until the gentleman I was paired with told me he was able to get a price $50. Less from Golf now.

Pretty course, however the day I played very slow play. Having said that the tee sheet must have been full, lots of people.
