Vidanta Golf (Norman course)

4-star: Above average course - well worth a visit.

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 test 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.

Tournaments

The Masters: The 88th Masters Tournament at Augusta National sees LIV golfer Jon Rahm defend his title against the world’s best. Pressing hard will be world No.1 and 2022 champion Scottie Scheffler and world No.2 Rory McIlroy (April 11-14).

Chevron Championship: the women’s major championship season gets underway for the second year at its new Carlton Woods home outside Houston, Texas. World No.2 Lilia Vu defends (April 18-21).

Who's Who

Nelly Korda: records a perfect start to 2024 with four wins out of her last four appearances on the LPGA Tour, a feat last achieved by Lorena Ochoa in 2008. Korda's win at the T-Mobile Match Play brought up her 12th LPGA Tour victory.

Scottie Scheffler: narrowly missed out on matching Nelly Korda’s three-in-three, when he placed second at the Houston Open. This followed back-to-back wins at the Arnold Palmer Invitational and The Players. Like Korda, he remains comfortably ahead in the official world golf rankings.

Marco Simone Golf & Country Club

Marco Simone Golf & Country Club: With a clubhouse that might befit a Roman Emperor, and a golf course to match, you can be sure of a memorable outing at Rome's most talked about golf facility.

Jim Fazio's original layout was much changed to create a modern Ryder Cup course ... now one of the Eternal City's (and Italy's) most revered.
