In Riviera Nayarit luxury is our nature, and this nature is the backdrop for the seven golf courses in our destination that have been endorsed by the Mexican Golf Federation. These have attracted the most important course designers around the world, including Greg Norman, who may soon be back in our destination for the re-opening tournament of the Litibú golf course.
Christophe Guiraud, course manager, spread the news last August 23 after welcoming Danny Fore, an associate designer of Norman’s design firm, who visited the course to evaluate the possibility of organizing this tournament.
They checked the conditions of the course, and rated it as excellent. “Fore was pleased with the course and reiterated his interest in having the tournament, so at this point we’re expecting confirmation from Greg Norman’s team, in order to bring the big news”, said Guiraud.
The Litibú golf course is managed by Fonatur and is open to the public. Guiraud said that the green fee is still offered with a 50% discount, which means that anyone can enjoy this course for $700 pesos.
Few activities compare to the joy of practicing your swing in any of the amazing golf courses in Riviera Nayarit, which has been positioned as the best golf destination in Mexico, and one of the favorite for golfers around the world. The key of its success has been the combination of spending landscapes, tropical forests and beaches, together with the design of acclaimed professionals like Jack Nicklaus, Greg Norman, Jim Lipe, Robert Von Hagge & Baril, and Percy Clifford.
“When one thinks of golf in Mexico, one may think of other destinations that have been promoting this sport for a longer time, but we believe that Riviera Nayarit is the up-and-coming golf destination in the world”, said recently Ted Simons, Executive Vice President of the Jack Nicklaus
