Headlines of Golf News Posts:
Grupo Vidanta Announces today the formation of the First Annual Grand Luxxe Member Invitational Tournament. It will be held on the Nayar Course in Nuevo Vallarta in May. Sounds like fun!|
An article in the November / December issue of California Golf News Digital Magazine describes Jack Nicklaus' newest golf academy. That's right, the subject of the article is located at the Nayar Golf Course in Nuevo Vallarta, Mexico.|
The article provides brief reviews from users of the facility and states the Nayar academy is the 15th Jack Nicklaus academy in the world and 3rd in Mexico.
The facility's director of instruction is Bruce Summerhays, Jr., a PGA professional from Utah whose father Bruce played on the PGA and Champions tours.
"This academy is really more of a golf experience than a practice area," Summerhays said. "The beginner can not only enjoy the incredible atmosphere, but can feel confident that they are receiving the best quality instruction."
Although we wanted to, we were unable to use the facility and look forward to doing so during our next visit. It seems to be a great place to both refine your game and practice as a beginner; the latter happens to be the reason we want to venture out and use this great resource.

This is a nice review of the Nicklaus Golf Academy seen on ETN Global Travel Industry News. The highlights of the article describe the practice areas. They seem to be open, large enough for many to practice and have enough targets to shoot for. Oh, and don't forget about the air conditioned coaching facilities. All computerized to analyze your swing.|
The director is Bruce Summerhays, Jr., who is a PGA golf pro from Utah. His father played on the PGA and Senior PGA tours.

Golf is a great pass time. From what we see, Vidanta Golf is committed to provide access to four additional courses at Neuvo Vallarta over the next six to eight years. We hear there could be plans for more golf courses in the Ease Cape area of San Jose del Cabo. If so, that will be even better.
In the meantime, we will all enjoy what we have and look forward to the expanded facilities when they arrive.
