Marina Vallarta Golf Club is known for its stunning tropical landscape that is home to an abundance of wildlife. Golfers have the opportunity to play amongst iguanas and alligators while enjoying scenic views of the Bay of Banderas. The course is blessed with a bevy of natural hazards including towering palm trees, lagoons, and waterfalls. Colorful tropical flowers and native vegetation further accent the landscape. In addition to the natural hazards, there are also a few strategically placed bunkers along the greensides. The golf course offers a challenging but fair test that is not overly demanding, which is probably for the best since it is easy to get distracted by the beautiful surroundings. Given its versatility and scenery, Marina Vallarta G.C. has become a popular venue for various golfing events, including the Governor's Cup Pro/Am Tournament.

Beautiful Course. Rental a little steep

Everything about this place is stunning. It's right on the ocean, right in the middle of these little old school mini mansions and it's somewhat tough to play but I like the challenge. I found the rental to be a little expensive. The clubs were only 60 bucks but three sleeves of balls were right at $50. And I needed to buy a glove which was another 40. I played Twilight so the green fees weren't so bad. All in all it cost me $180. Not bad but the round only cost $65...

nice course for the $

Wonderful jungle motif with alligators. Interesting layout. The course has come along way since I last played it 30 years ago. Nothing but better in every category. Wish the greens were a little faster but the putting is true if not on the slow side.

Very nice people and chill vibe I like

Challenging Course

Fairways are tight.Several water holes on the back nine. Well trapped. Course is flat but the holes have variety. All the Vallarta courses are pricy. This course is better than most.

Chubbs would be proud

Not sure why I saw this course get a bad wrap online. Amazing experience with beautiful views, especially on the Par 3, 4th hole as you can see below. I think some of you guys prefer to shoot in the 100s somewhere that looks the Garden of Eden. If so this fits the bill, I’ll be back. Cheers gentlemen

Great city course

Fun place to play. The course was in good condition but not perfect, with friendly staff and a nice clubhouse. Right next to the beach and ocean on hole 3 for a nice photo op. City course in a nice residential area
