|Four Seasons Golf Club|
Punta Mita is the Monterey Peninsula of Mexico, with spectacular views and equally spectacular golf. This course features eight holes bordering the Pacific Ocean, as well as one truly unique hole: a 194-yard par-3, located on a natural island in the ocean.
About an hour's drive north of Puerto Vallarta, on Mexico's Pacific Coast, you will find Punta Mita, and the Four Seasons Resort. From the entrance of the resort property to the club house is about another 10 minute drive. When Jack Nicklaus designed the course for the Four Season Resort at Punta Mita, he did something unique. He used a small island, about 175 yards offshore, for one of the greens.
It is surrounded by what has to be the bigger water hazard in the world, the Pacific Ocean, and is the only natural island green in the world. Hole number 3 is considered by many to be one of the most beautiful holes in the world. If the tide is too high, or the water too rough for the small boat to take you to the island, there is an alternate green. Either way, playing the Four Seasons Golf Course will be an experience that will live on in memory.
Since this is a semi-private course, intended for the hotel guests of the Four Seasons Resort and golf club members, it is not played as heavily as most public courses.
