- There were 144 players on the course—more than were expected for this first edition of the tour in the Destination. Next year the Riviera Nayarit will host the grand finale of the Mundo Golf Tour 2016.
The organizers and participants agreed the third stop of the Mundo Golf Tour 2015 in the Riviera Nayarit was a complete success. The excellent conditions of the Vidanta Golf Course in Nuevo Vallarta, the wonderful weather and the top-notch service left all the participants very satisfied indeed.
“Basically we’re promoting tourism destinations, businesses, hotels and golf courses, meaning it’s a win-win for everyone. Next year we want to play in the best destinations in the country and the Riviera Nayarit is one of the top spots we want to market and develop,” said Hiram Castillo, Mundo Golf founder and director.
This year there were 144 participants and a waiting list of players who wanted to participate in this tournament, where several professionals were present to show off their strokes. Half of the participants came from the interior of the Republic, proof of the wide circulation of the event’s promotion.
“Everyone was very favorably impressed,” added Castillo. “We’ve seen that golf is a business proposition and an excellent medium for public relations, apart from the fact that in financial terms it’s a Premium platform.”
“The idea is for the Riviera Nayarit circuit to tour through the interior of the country and end up in this beautiful destination,” commented Jesus Carmona, who collaborated with the organization of the tournament representing the Banderas Bay Hotel and Motel Association.
“It was an excellent tournament,” stated Eduardo Rodríguez, a member of the winning team from Sinaloa. “We’ve been to the Riviera Nayarit two or three times, it’s a beautiful locale especially for those of us who are into golf; the greens are excellent and they have an extraordinary culinary diversity. It’s all top-notch, I would invite everyone who hasn’t played here before to come visit.”
