Punta Mita Golf Club 

Pacifico & Bahia

The Pacifico Course 

This Jack Nicklaus-designed golf club is set amid vistas of white-sand beaches and the majestic Sierra Madre Mountains surrounding Riviera Nayarit. Spread over 81 hectares (200 acres), the course takes full advantage of its seaside location. Eight holes border either the Pacific Ocean or Banderas Bay and offer views of whales during their seasonal migration.

Dubbed the “Tail of the Whale” Pacifico’s optional, par-three 19th hole mea­sur­ing 194 yards, fea­tures the only nat­ural island green in the world – an unforgettable hole to play! The course itself plays between 5,037 and 7,014 yards. The Punta Mita peninsula’s tropical landscape of palms and flowering trees adds to the pleasure of playing this golf course, which is at once challenging for experienced golfers and friendly for beginners.


The Bahia Course 

The newest addition to Punta Mita’s golfing achievement, this second Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Course opened in late 2008 and is as stunning as its sister course. Featuring six ocean holes and playing between 5,180 and 7,030 yards, this championship course rolls through the property of the St. Regis Resort, and among the communities of El Encanto, Porta Fortuna, and La Punta Estates. The challenging and undulating fairway and green complexes offer a wonderful counterpart to The Pacifico Course for golf aficionados.
