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.

Great course off the beaten path

If you're not afraid to venture off resort, this is a must play at least once. It was unfortunate that the course was cart path only due to a hurricane that came through, but the course was in great shape. No homes or hotels around. Just you and the surrounding landscape. Staff and cart person was super cool. Alma makes the absolute best scratch margaritas. Greens were in great shape rolling around a 10+.

Weiskoph - Early morning - Empty and amazing

Such a great course, greens were true, course is extremely well kept & there is noone around. Got through in 2.5 hours with just myself and my wife driving the cart. Would recommend to anyone coming to the area

Aerated greens

When I arrived, the person at the pro shop desk asked if I was told that the greens had been aerated two weeks before and that they were not healed yet. She also told me that the Nicklaus course was closed for aeration. I replied that I was not aware of the situation. Golf Now should have alerted me. Since I had already spent $25 on cab fare to get there, I went ahead and played. I expected more for the price of $159. Loved the course and the layout. Golf Now should have done better. It’s obvious now that there was a reason that my friend and I were the only people on the course.

Nice but over priced

The course is nice but not worth the money paid to play there. Had I not been on vacation I would not of played there for the price.

Poor management

We bought March 6 for a 2 o'clock teatime they would not allow us to check in until 130 leaving no time for warm up when we arrived at the 1st tee 12 other golfers were waiting without disclosing they had scheduled a shotgun tournament that morning and the course was totally overwhelmed While the courses beautiful the experience was extremely poor for the reason stated

Great day and fast pace

With a great twighlight rate of $75 and the course almost empty I played alone in 2 hours! Both courses here are excellent. Well groomed and conditions fairly firm and fast. Good varieties of holes with lots of elevation changes. Too bad the course is not walkable but some big gaps between tee to green. Played the course at about 6500 yards and a good challenge for a single digits player. Back tees should be only for those with some real pop off the tee. Too bad the fees in the morning are so expensive as the course deserves more golfers if i could spend the winter would definitely become a member as the annual cost is pretty fair and with 36 holes you could come here 6-7 days per week and love. The best two courses in PV area
