Est. 2016

Vidanta Golf, Nueva Vallarta (Greg Norman Signature Course): Accessed by one of the world's longest golf cart suspension bridges (over the Ameca River), Norman's layout joined the original Nicklaus-designed "Nayar" course in 2016. The Great White Shark's design lays down the tougher of the two 18-hole courses here.

Greg Norman's layout winds along the Ameca River, providing views of the Sierra Madres from every hole. Large landing areas off the tee give way to large undulating greens protected, in typical Norman fashion, by cavernous bunkers.

The original Nicklaus designed Nayar course was once surrounded by lush jungle, with several holes running alongside the neighbouring El Tigre golf course. The Sierra Madre mountains lie inland. The course lays down an enjoyable challenge for high and low handicappers alike, with several lakes and 49 strategically placed bunkers to be negotiated. Although no holes run directly alongside the nearby Pacific Ocean, crosswinds from the ocean often add to the challenge.
