The month of September is traditionally slow for the Puerto Vallarta area but the El Tigre Golf & Country Club promises to be an active spot as they introduce a weekend special of $500 pesos to try to tame "EL Tigre". This applies to members and local residents only and after 10:00 AM on Saturdays and Sundays. With skyrocketing prices at golf courses, this will be a great opportunity to play one of Latin America's best and most challenging courses during the month of September. For more information, call locally at 226-8190 or email golf(at)paradisevillagegroup.com.
