- Playing golf in
spectacular surroundings is a true pleasure. Here, emerald green courses, palm
trees, lakes, and estuaries shimmer side-by-side the endless ocean.
Over the past few years, the Riviera Nayarit has become one of the best golf destinations in Mexico, increasing its fame among players by offering the best courses and the most celebrated tournaments.
This is golfing at its highest level, not only because of the impeccable courses designed by the likes of Jack Nicklaus, Greg Norman, Jim Lipe, Robert Von Hagge & Baril and Percy Clifford, but also thanks to the magnificent mountain landscapes, the tropical jungle, and the beach, delighting golfers from around the world.

Most of the courses are PGA certified—the top North American professional golf circuit for men—and have every high-end service. And you don’t have to be an expert to enjoy a good round of golf!
There are currently eight world-class golf courses ready to welcome players: El Tigre, Flamingos, Litibú, Campo Nayar, Campo Norman Signature and The Lakes en Vidanta Golf; Punta Mita Bahía and Punta Mita Pacífico, as well as two small 9-hole courses, Las Huertas in San Pancho and Campo de Ensueño Golf Club.

SEE IT TO BELIEVE IT
The longest golf cart bridge: The Riviera Nayarit has the longest hanging bridge for golf carts in the world. It’s 402 meters (a quarter of a mile) long and connects the Greg Norman and Jack Nicklaus courses over the Ameca River. Both courses lie within the Vidanta Nuevo Vallarta complex. The bridge was built to ease the flow of players between the two courses.
The most original green: Hole 3B, known as “Tale of the Whale,” is the only green in the world on a natural island and is part of the Pacífico golf course in the exclusive Punta Mita development. This place is so spectacular that even Jack Nicklaus, the prestigious ex-golfer and course designer, has described it as the best Par 3 he’s ever designed.

The Riviera Nayarit Convention and Visitors Bureau (CVB) and the Bahía de Banderas Hotel and Motel Association (AHMBB) are hard at work to promote the destination with the support of the Government of the State of Nayarit via its Tourism Promotional Trust (Fiprotur). The destination’s sports product offer is a key asset for these promotional efforts.
