Golf at Grupo Vidanta Resorts

desc
The Greg Norman course is the newest course to be opened at Grupo Vidanta's property at Neuvo Vallarta, Mexico. Nine holes are ready to play on and nine are being seeded as of July 10, 2015. The course is scheduled to open on December 1, 2015, and if all goes well, this will be a premium course. Members will access the Norman course by bridge. This photo shows the bridge under construction.

Vidanta Golf wants to become the largest operator of golf courses in Mexico and currently owns and operates of five:
What is in place now is sufficient to provide members and guests with challenging and enjoyable rounds of golf.

In fact one member (Ted and Susie) provided us with the first complete album of the Nayar Course as they played in March, 2011.

2015-07-15 Greg Norman Course is Coming....and....Golf Memberships Are Now Being Sold

Rumors have been circulating that the Golf Amenities are changing to keep up with the addition of new golf courses. We have learned from the Sales Department the rumors are true. Changes will be discussed by Sales representatives in updates during the 2015 - 2016 season. The Greg Norman Course is scheduled to open on December 1, 2015, and with it comes the opportunity to become a golf member.

This post shows photos taken in November, 2014 of the Greg Norman course. Nine holes are ready for play (as of July 15, 2015). The remaining nine holes are built, and final seeding is taking place as we write.

This post also provides an outline of the new golf parameters.

We understand the need for change. After all, the Golf Benefits covered existing courses and were granted during the construction phases on the property. Since 2008, additions include nine new buildings, nine swimming pools and seven restaurants. Wow!! It is now seven years later, and use of the new Greg Norman course has to be defined. On we go.....and yes.....we will stay tuned....!

2012-12-30 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.

You can read the article by following this link: http://calgolfnews.com/2012/06/29/july-hot-topics.html


2012-09-18 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.

You can read more at http://www.eturbonews.com/30245/jack-nicklaus-golf-academy-opens-grupo-vidanta-resort-nuevo.- We are looking forward to trying this new facility out in November.

2012-04-05 The Nicklaus Golf Academy Opening - End of April or Early May

Grupo Vidanta issued a press release on June 9, 2011 that announced a proposed opening date for the Jack Nicklaus Golf Academy of late Spring 2012. It is now late Spring and Judy asked the question....can you update us when the Academy will open? The answer is late April or early May. Right on schedule. We were fortunate enough to see the new facility from a distance. Grass on the new driving range is growing and the target sand traps are in place. Also, the teaching facility is built and ready to open....more...

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.
