Vista Vallarta Club de Golf received quite the honor recently when Golfweek magazine named the Club’s two golf courses to its 2014 list of the best golf courses in the Caribbean and Mexico! Vista Vallarta’s Nicklaus Signature Course nabbed the No. 8 spot, and the Weiskopf Signature Course was named No. 17 on Golfweek’s list.

Golfweek’s No. 8 Course: Nicklaus 

Grassy hillsides, dense forests of palm and giant ficus trees, natural creeks and arroyos provide the perfect setting for this world-class course by one of the world's greatest players. Situated on the Club’s highest elevation, the Nicklaus Course boasts stunning views of Puerto Vallarta, the Marina and Banderas Bay.

Golfweek’s No. 17 Course: Weiskopf 

Mr. Weiskopf masterfully blended the elevations and natural features into an incredibly playable experience, from the first tee to the green of the “driveable" 18th hole. The course is located on the property’s lower west end and the terrain includes dense jungles, deep ravines and swift creeks.

Matt Ginella, host of the Golf Channel’s show Morning Drive recently visited Vista Vallarta Club de Golf in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, to tape a segment for an upcoming episode of Ginella’s Journeys in Mexico. In this segment, Ginella highlights three golf destinations in Mexico – Puerto Vallarta, Cabo San Lucas and Cancun – show casing spectacular Mexico golf as well as the registered Golf Now golf courses. At Vista Vallarta, Ginella and Member Joe Newton played the No. 6 hole on the Nicklaus Signature Course, and the No. 15 on the Weiskopf Signature Course. Ginella was intrigued by the “optical illusion” from the tee of the multi-tiered green. While they played, Newton shared local golf course knowledge and mentioned that ClubCorp's Marina Vallarta Club de Golf golf course is located nearby. The two clubs are located near the CasaMagna Marriott Resort, who is one of ClubCorp’s affiliate partners. Marriott hotel guests can enjoy all-inclusive golf privileges at both clubs with the "Stay and Play" package. 

Ginella, who graciously donned a Vista Vallarta hat throughout taping, commented that he loved the facility and would like to return and play all of ClubCorp’s 36 holes offered in Mexico! The episode will air on the Golf Channel in the next few weeks so stay tuned for more information. In the meantime, here's a little teaser for you.
