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.

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

Vista Vallarta-Weiskopf review

I played this course numerous times over the past two months. It is an excellent course with wonderful conditions and surprisingly very limited play. Some of this I'm sure is impacted by the pandemic, but for some reason Pto Vallarta does not seem to be a golf destination. If you like speedy rounds, you will be in heaven here. It is located about 25 mins from most hotel locations in a hilly area. The course uses the terrain to maximum effectiveness, to deliver both challenge and fairness. The greens are the only area of the course that could be improved, with faster speeds. My only negatives are: 1.) for a course charging up to $200+, forcing you to buy drinking water seems a little cheap in my mind, and 2.) do not use your American Express card to pay for your round at any of the VV courses. They charge a 10%+ surcharge (not disclosed) to use these cards due to inflated exchange rates charged when they convert to pesos. American Express cards can only be prosessed in pesos. Use a MasterCard or Visa which can be processed in US dollars with no surcharge.

Recommend a caddie

Course was in perfect condition. The greens are challenging and a caddie would be a definite help in reading them. This course is more difficult then the Nicklaus course.
