All About Puerto Vallarta https://promovisionpv.com/all-about-puerto-vallarta/

Flamingos Golf Course, Bucerias, Riviera Nayarit

The Flamingos Golf Club is definitely one of the best in the area. They’ve been in business for a long time and they really know how to treat their clientele. The club offers gorgeous scenery of the jungle as well as views of the Pacific. Much of the golf course is lined by palm trees, flowering bushes, and mango trees that are filled with fruit.

This club is right along the main road from Puerto Vallarta to Bucerias (Across from Hotel Las Palomas) As you approach the club you’ll see a giant white tee with a golf ball on top, which is their icon.

It is a 6,853-yard par 72 championship course with slightly narrow fairways that are naturally laid out on gently sloping terrain. Most of the water traps are inhabited by lovely crocodiles, so it is probably a good idea to bring some extra golf balls. There is also a restaurant at Flamingos where you can grab a bite to eat.

Access: Open to the public, there is a dress code in place.

Just steps away from the beachfront, this golf course challenges you with tricky layouts, strategic bunkering, ridges above the beach, and ocean views spread throughout the course.

Marina Vallarta Golf Club, Puerto Vallarta

Marina Vallarta Golf Club is your best option if you are staying in Puerto Vallarta, especially if you are near the Marina area where this course is located. This golf course is well-maintained and easy to access as it is just 5 minutes off from the main boulevard (Medina Ascencio) in Puerto Vallarta.

Playing at the Marina Vallarta Golf Club can get very interesting. The carefully manicured fairways are close to the ocean so you will have fabulous views of the ocean as you play along. At times, the view of the ocean will be blocked by the beachfront resorts next to the course, but you can still enjoy the natural surroundings dotted with palm trees and water hazards.

When you play at the Marina Vallarta Golf Club, you will have the opportunity to see the crocodiles taking a sunbath right next to the water hazards and ponds. It’s up to you if you want to keep an eye on them, but they have been the lifetime pets of the club and there has not been any incident of a crocodile attack on the course.

The club is close to local restaurants and cafes where you can grab a bite or take a break after the game. They do have golf clubs of the best quality for rent if you happen to be traveling without your set.

Access: Open to the public, there is a dress code in place.

The sport of golf is all about having fun and you’ll be able to have lots of it here. Everything at this club is world-class but we must let you know here that during the high season (Winter) a lot of the members/guests will be playing behind you for a 10-minute span.

Among the numerous amenities of the Nayar Golf Club, they have a restaurant called Taco Break where you can have anything from a cold drink to a full meal after golf.
