El Tigre Club de Golf
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.

A divine track in bad condition
If you like visual stimulation and a great degree of varied holes this is a place you'll love! Unfortunately, the greens are in bad shape (lots of burned out edges and and hills). Lots of dead spots in the fairways and generally lackluster rough. I have played here for over 8 years on an annual basis and this is the WORST condition I've ever seen this gem in.
Although it is a super track, I would put my money elsewhere until they repair the unfortunate condition.
Solid layout with terrible maintenance.
I have played this track almost a dozen times and this was absolutely the most horrific condition I've ever seen. Burnt out greens (almost 20% of most), torn up tee boxes and a lot of dead spots on the low areas equaled a less than satisfying experience.
I gave this track a 4+ last year but they have obviously decided being in Mexico is enough to overcharge and underproduce. Sad to say the least.
Go to any other $100+ course in the area or just simply play a video game............. but if you pay the green fee here you are going to be disappointed (or in my case just plain angry).
Tame the Tiger
I booked the GolfNow Hot Deal time at 1:40 pm which can be challenging to finish, but as it turned out we played easily in under 3.5 hours. Greens looked not so good but rolled out better than expected. The course is working on the green side bunkers and the new white sand is beautiful but very challenging to play out of.
Enjoyed the course
The course was great, challenging but not so hard that it wasn’t fun. Greens were ok and looked like some work was ongoing. The staff was very friendly and accommodating would definitely come back again.
1st time to El Tigre
Was a great experience for both myself and my wife, track was challenging. Greens left a little to be desired as far as condition went but overall a great experience.
El Tigre has teeth!
Great practice range. Lots of variety on the course. Challenging approach shots. Fairways are accessible.
Unfortunately the course was damaged by the hurricane and rain this summer and is still in recovery mode. Greens and bunkers are not in good shape. The maintenance staff are obviously trying to improve them but it will take time. All staff excellent as usual.
Lots of excellent holes
Greens were not great. Fairways were excellent. Group in front of us must have thought they were playing for huge money because they were extremely slow. We finally finished at 6:15 and everything was closed.
Overall course has a good layout and is a challenge for all abilities. Very similar in style to a typical course in Florida. Water on many holes in play from the tee but ample area to land your tee ball. Several holes with water tight to the smallish greens. Bunkers seem to be in a midst of a renovation so some are poor lots of small stones and liners showing and some with brand new brilliant white sand that’s needs grooming. I think many player don’t realize there is a rake on your cart because it is quite evident players are not raking after play which is of no fault of the club. Waste areas are in need of some maintenance as well. Greens play better than they look. About 3 greens were in quite poor shape and look like they had suffered some disease. But the main thing is that most all putted decent and I would estimate stimp was 9-10. Overall we would return and we really enjoyed our day and was worth what we paid on the hot deal $90. HCP of players 2 and 17.
This course has a number of very memorable holes
The greens were very ugly. They had been cut too short for a pga event that took place there and had not come back. They still putted OK. We finished at 5:30 and were politely ushered out the door at 6. Can’t they stay open a little long so we could enjoy our afterround beverage? They were great keeping us hydrated on the course though. Very much appreciated. Love the layout.
