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.

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.

Gem of a course

The back 9 at Vista Vallarta - Weiskopf is the most scenic 9 in Vallarta in my opinion. The greens are easier than the Nicolas course for sure...ideal for people who shoot 80-100. I usually don't have people in front or behind me when I play Weiskopf in the afternoons. Great course, enjoy, but part of me hopes this place remains a secret!

Best offering in PV

We played 1 day after the Adidas Pro Am. The course is fantastic. We had played Marina Vallarta, El Tigre and Vidanta earlier. The Weisfopf course was the best of the bunch. The course is located closer to the mountains and the topography is much more interesting. The course has some nice elevation changes and a number of arroyos and gulches to play over. The condition was very good and greens rolled well with the grain on every green growing toward the ocean. We were the only ones there and played comfortably in 2:45. We would play here again, I think the place is deserted due to the price. Hot deal was 125 + tax US

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+.
