Best golf courses: Banderas Bay, Mexico

Golf in Banderas Bayor Bahia de Banderas: Visitors to one of the largest bays in the world can enjoy breathtaking views from any of the hills that surround the big-name resort city of Puerto Vallarta. In Puerto Vallarta, we discovered the Four Seasons Punta Mita, whose Pacific course is one Mexico's finest championship layouts, featuring scenic ocean views, including those of whales in all their majesty during their seasonal migration.

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

Who's Who

Céline Boutier: with many successes as both an amateur and professional golfer, Boutier added a major championship title to her impressive résumé at this year’s Evian Championship.

Alex Cejka: buffeted by rain and high winds, especially on the high-scoring final day, Čejka prevailed over Pádraig Harrington in a playoff at Royal Porthcawl, to scoop the Senior Open Championship title.

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.
