World-class golf has helped make Puerto Vallarta and the Riviera Nayarit a destination of choice for vacationers from around the world, and guests of Velas Vallarta enjoy special preferential rates on spectacular courses.
Just minutes from the resort, the Marina and Vista Vallarta Golf Clubs offer practice facilities, a luxurious clubhouse with restaurant, bar and lounge, verandas, golf shop, and on-course beverage service.
Marina Vallarta is an 18-hole golf course designed by the famous American Architect Joe Finger. Located in the Marina area, it is a marvelous mix of the tropical ambiance of the Pacific Coast with views of the Sierra Madre and Banderas Bay.
Spread across 478 acres, the Vista Vallarta Golf Club offers two 18-hole championship golf courses designed by golf greats Jack Nicklaus and Tom Weiskopf.
The Nicklaus Signature Course
Opened in April 2001, the first course at Vista Vallarta is a signature design by Jack Nicklaus. This course's high elevation means golfers are treated not only to world class golf but breathtaking views of Puerto Vallarta, the Marina and Banderas Bay.
The Weiskopf Signature Course
The second course on the property is a signature design by Tom Weiskopf, which opened in November 2001. The Weiskopf course provides Vista Vallarta with a dramatic contrast from the first course, built on the property's lowest west end. Golfers will be amazed by the challenging terrain, which includes dense jungles, deep ravines and swift creeks.
