- Mexico’s Pacific Treasure will host two extraordinary competitions for the industry professionals that will visit our destination
In Riviera Nayarit luxury is our nature, and this is why we’ve chosen two of the most beautiful golf courses in the country to celebrate important competitions for participants of the Tianguis Turístico 2012, which we’ll be co-hosting with Puerto Vallarta.
Golf is one of the main appeals of Riviera Nayarit, as we have 6 professional golf courses. In order to introduce these to buyers and to the main commercial partners of the Mexican touristic industry, we’ve organized tournaments at the El Tigre Golf & Country Club in Nuevo Vallarta, and at the Punta Mita-Pacifico course.
Punta Mita is an exclusive residential community that has been getting a lot of attention in recent months due to visiting celebrities and movie stars, and it offers two golf courses designed by acclaimed Jack Nicklaus, one of which will welcome the personalities that will attend the Tianguis.
The Punta Mita Golf Tournament Edicion Tianguis 2012, Riviera Nayarit-Mexico will be played on March 24, and the 72 competitors that will be invited by the sponsoring United Airlines will have to opportunity to test their skills at the emblematic 3-B hole, better known as the “Tail of the Whale”.
El Tigre Golf & Country Club will be hosting the second competition, and the course has already been classified as one of the best courses in the world according to Rolex. Its challenging design was conceived by Von Hagge, Smelek & Barig Design, and has allowed it to host important international tournaments like PGA’s Copa de las Americas and the LPGA’s Futures Tour’s Riviera Nayarit Classic.
El Tigre Edición Tianguis 2012 Riviera Nayarit-México tournament will take place also on March 24 at 9:00 AM, and will be open to all pariticpants of the Tianguis, with a limit of 92 players, so it’s recommended to book well in advance.
“This edition of the Tianguis belongs to all of Mexico, and at Riviera Nayarit we want to make it an unforgettable one. This is why we’ve organized two golf tournaments that will allow professionals of the touristic industry to experience what we have to offer for golf lovers”, said Fernando González Ortega, president of the Convention and Visitors Bureau (CVB) of Riviera Nayarit.
