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.

The pace of play was great because they only had about 6 players all day. The conditions of the course were good but not great. The rental clubs provided are old beat up Taylormade Aeroburners that they charge $50 for, not worth it at all. The course is located 20-25 minutes from downtown and difficult to get to. The surroundings are what seem to be a dead vegetation jungle. If you can play punta mita courses I think you would be better off.

I come to PVR every year for the winter and always like to play this course at least once during my stay. Very pricey unless you use golfnow.com

This is my favorite course in Puerto Vallarta. Wish II could afford to play it more often.

Tees, fairways, and greens were great. The sand in the traps was excellent to hit out of. Pace of play was great. Puerto Vallarta needs to learn how to sell golf. All the courses here are too expensive and empty. Vista keeps the restaurant open longer than all the other courses which is nice for those of us that play in the afternoon. This is just a wonderful place to play golf.

Golfed twilight. Was very enjoyable. No one pushing us. We could just enjoy the course. Greens were in great condition....but fast. Parts of the course seemed pretty dry. It could just be the normal weather for the season..

This course seems to be our favorite of the ones we have played this trip to PV.

If you don't mind hot weather, the course is wide open in the afternoons. We easily came in under 4 hours. Greens had just been cut and were hard and quite fast with a few challenging tiers and breaks. The carts don't have computers so a laser or the yardage book from the club house helps if you are playing the course for the first time because a few of the ravines are deceptively close (or far).

What a nice change from the flat courses in Puerto Vallarta. I played the white tees and enjoyed the variety of challenges from the tees. Although some fairways were forgiving, many required a straight drive. The bunker placements were difficult and fair. Sand was of good quality. I really enjoyed the greens. Unlike El Tigre slow greens, these were a joy to play. They putted true. All I had to do was read hem correctly. I recommend learning the pace on the practice greens prior to playing.
