Should you be bitten by the golf bug, Nuevo Vallarta lays claim to three world-class 18-hole golf courses to help ease your pain, Flamingos Golf Course was the first golf course built in the greater Puerto Vallarta / Riviera Nayarit area. Amenities include a par-72 championship course with slightly narrow fairways, a 230-yard long practice range and a putting green.
Adjacent to the Mayan Palace Resort, the Nayar Golf Course was recently redesigned by the world-renowned Nicklaus Design Team. This par-70 course can be particularly challenging due to the constant crosswinds coming off the ocean. Caddies are required.
The newest of Nuevo Vallarta’s three courses is the El Tigre Golf Course. Part of the Paradise Village beach resort, El Tigre is a par-72 tropical-style course built on relatively flat terrain. Features include a 300-yard driving range, a putting green, and a small zoo where you can see the big cats for which the course was named.
