Golfed 4 rounds Nov.28th-Dec. 5th. Rates are cheaper the more you golf. Package deals are available. Golf in Mexico is always expensive, so we looked for a course close to Riu Vallarta and for a good price. I'm glad we played all our rounds here as the last round finally culminated into the 'Great Round' (score wise) lol.
Bermuda greens which are fairly slow but in good shape. I like slower Bermuda greens because I have a tougher time reading them and getting a feel over bent greens. Almost every green is elevated and approach shots are from well below the green.
The course isn't too hard which was a nice change for vacation golf. I generally try finding the most prestigious and difficult courses while on vacation and sometimes I lose so many golf balls I wonder why I even bothered haha. This course is fun, challenging, but not too difficult. Just stay in the fairway. The rough is fairly thick.
Not many fairway bunkers, but every green is well guarded by bunkers.
The scenery is nice, tropical, and private (every hole is hidden from other holes which is nice), but not mind blowing like some seaside and mountain courses. We saw a few large crocodiles which was cool but made me a little nervous when shooting close to the water.
One day we had to use a caddie and that day was probably my worst round. I just don't get the use for caddies in the age of golf carts. (unless walking of course). It might have helped if the caddie spoke english though. He hustled to get our clubs and keep the ball clean but that was about it. No reads, advice or anything.
Beer cart was rarely seen and the concession workers were rude and useless. They never had coffee made in the mornings. Really, the first thing they should do is brew coffee not fold napkins or rearrange chairs lol. Oh well, other than that the staff were nice especially the backshop guys who get your clubs and clean them after every round.
Overall this is a solid chioice in the PV area. It was the first course designed in PV and a nice country club setting. Well maintained, scenic, and fun.
