Excellent course

Played the Nayar course at Vidanta today. Had an excellent round. The course was a little dry but played well and had a good time with friends. We will be back.

Course is great - hard to get to

The actual golf course is lovely and easy to play. However, the address on Golf Now is completely wrong since the renovations at Vidanta. You must enter through the main gate of Vidanta off of the highway, then park and take a shuttle to the pro shop then another shuttle to hole 1. The Golf Now price was great BUT caddies are mandatory at 700 pesos each so that adds another $40USD to the cost of the round. Allow yourself at least 40 minutes from arriving at the Vidanta Gate until you ride 2 shuttles before your tee off time.

Nice venue once you get there

Enjoyed the course. It was in good condition and quite playable. Caddie Eduardo quite helpful. Would definitely go back. Of the four course I played the two at Vindanta were in the best shape and most enjoyable. Grass was green and not dried out.
Only issue I had was getting there. You can only access this and the Norman course thru the main Vindanta entrance off Rte 200 not from Nararit Blvd.
Also allow at least 30 minutes before tee time as you have to take shuttle to course.
Otherwise enjoy the scenery.

Disappointed

Course was very beautiful, staff friendly for the positive. Disappointed for a few reasons. There was a very bad house fire on the course which caused our game to be held up and re routed. Hopefully everyone is ok!! That is the main thing. We were held up and then re routed to another part of the course. I said maybe we should come back?? We ended up playing several different holes and not in order and missed out on 3 of the holes. The fire was of course out of their control . At the end we tipped the caddy very well then he told us his service was 800 pesos. We were not told about a caddy charge. Service for the shuttle to the course was late by 30 minutes. It was a very expensive day for us and feel we were short changed of our golf game and should of been offered the option to come back due to the fire.

Check for club rental

We went to play this course, and they didn't have any clubs for rent. We ended up having to wait until groups came in from their rounds and we could get 3 sets of clubs.

Overall Great

Do not follow Golf Now or Google Maps Address, took me 40min to find this course, had to ask an employee from a hotel nearby. Plan to get there 40min before your tee time, you have to park, wait for a cart to get to take you to the range, then wait for a caddy, the golf. Course is flat and easy, caddy is very helpful, please understand they have them for course upkeep and provide jobs for locals, they are not golf experts. Would golf again for hot deal price, not worth paying $125, I got it for $57 booking the night before.

Vidanta :(

First time player here and played Nicklaus course which isn’t a full 18 holes apparently?! U replay holes to get 18 in?!? Who knew?! Was not advertised that way. Pace of play might be the worst I have seen anywhere and I have played in greater than 20 countries. Like worse than slow play am tour events and staff don’t seem to care. Having said that, caddy was funny and gracious (good job Luis). Unbelievable maze to get from front to drop off to then take you to proshop then finally out to the 1st hole. Seriously be 45 min early minimum!!! Won’t play here again, missed the mark for anyone not staying in Vidanta and even then quite questionable.
