“Damn bunkers”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2012

The course was nicely laid out. I found challenging and enjoyable at the same time! The caddy was very informative and knew just how the greens broke. Was not too happy about finding out at the end of my round that it costs 200 pesos for his fees! And the caddy is mandatory!!!

“They have figured out resort golf, caddies speed play”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2012

We belong to a great collection of Nicklaus courses, and while this is not a signature courses, it is designed to play fast, be entertaining, and it achieves these goals, all helped along by caddies assigned to each group that keeps play moving. Both days we played in 4 hours, a few minutes either way, and without the caddies to supervise, you know many of the non-golfers that decide to play would turn this into a five hour experience. Congrats to the Vida group for doing something right!

“FUN”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

If you are a scratch golfer, you need more of a challenge, but can still enjoy this "tourist friendly" Course. The slope rating will be very low, and the lineups to get onto the course are huge. In fact if you want to play this course, you better book several months in advance, or be prepared to "tip" the starter. You will not lose any balls on this course, but it does offer some challenges... and the caddies are all first rate.

“Bring Your Clubs saves $$$”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2012

The holes on this course have been renumbered. The water and sand traps are fair. It costs more to rent clubs each time you golf than to pay the baggage fee on most airlines. The driving range has been moved. The green are well maintained and they catch the crocodiles as soon as they are spotted. (Crocks are not a huge problem on the course).
