Vista Vallarta Golf Club offers two championship courses, one designed by Jack Nicklaus and the other by Tom Weiskopf. The Weiskopf Course provides a dramatically different round from the Nicklaus design. The other golf course sits atop the property's highest elevation while this one is situated at the lower west end. As you step onto the course and see the dense jungles that sprawl across deep ravines, you will hardly believe that it is still the same property. It offers the same level of challenge as the Nicklaus Course but some high handicappers prefer this one since there are fewer blind shots and the greens are more receptive, making them not quite as tricky. The 15th is an uphill par 3 that is probably the golf course's most memorable hole. This challenging hole requires a carry past a ravine to multi-tiered green that is surrounded by bunkers on all sides.

Nice challenging course, nice fairways, and tight greens.

Very fun course, does not play easy if you miss the fairways.

Vista only in name

Both Courses are in great shape from tee to green, I played them both the same day, 36 holes in 5 1/2 hours, having a caddy helps a lot, only complain would be that the name of the course is Vista which means "View", but there really is no view of anything, it's just surrounded by vegetation and construction. but everyone that works there, from pro shop, starter, cart girl, caddy, all awesome people, they treat you right and make you feel welcome.

Nice course but below-average value

We had a great round at the Weiskopf course. The pace of play could not have been better, and the course staff was awesome. The only hang up we had is that the cost was not a good value as compared to the adjoining Nicklaus course on the same property. The two courses are of similar quality, but we were able to play the Nicklaus course for about half the price (both rounds during twilight hours). Reasonable minds can disagree on which course is better, but we'd easily choose the Nicklaus course again given the price difference.

Good Challenge

Beautiful course. Perfect, fast greens. Fairways cut a tad too short for 3 woods, at least the way I play 'em. Bunkers don't measure up to the rest of it, though. No sand in some, only packed dirt. Others were fine, so I guess the word is "inconsistent. " Staff is excellent!
Love to play here again whenever my TaylorMade driver and I are on speaking terms again...

Great views snd elevation

We played Nicklaus and are very familiar with his courses. Liked the challenging elevations, abundant bunkers and up and downhill approach shots..
Most enjoyable of the Vallarta courses. We will definitely return.0

Vista Vallarta- Weiskopf Course

Played at Vista for the second day running. The off course facilities I’ve raced about on my previous review and it didn’t disappoint this time either. They had stored our clubs, cleaned them and had our buggy (cart) ready for us on arrival. You can also order food and they will deliver it to you on course if you want. Can’t fault the service at all.

On to the course. We were told it was a better challenge than the Nicklaus and it probably is due to the narrowness of the course interspersed with the surrounding jungle but it isn’t as good in my opinion. This may have been down to it being my 7th round in ten days so tiredness was certainly involved. There are 3-4 wonderful looking holes and certainly worth playing.

Play both if you can but if it’s a choice of either, I would take the Nicklaus.
