at the Punta Mita Resort, Riviera Nayarit, Mexico

Home to the Four Seasons / St. Regis Punta Mita Mexico Resorts, the 7,014-yard Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Course, featuring the iconic hole 3b the Tail of the Whale green on a natural ocean island, has made Punta Mita a veritable paradise for world class golfing.

Developed with careful environmental planning, the Punta Mita golf facility features a maxi four-system computerized weather station to monitor ground moisture, helping to conserve water by irrigating greens and fairways only when needed. Environmentally safe organic fertilizers are used in place of chemicals, employing little or no herbicides or insecticides, with only biodegradable insecticides used on greens bordering the ocean.

Natural vegetation, including 26 acres of native grasses, have been preserved in and around the course.Greens are designed to USGA (United States Golf Association) standards, consisting of Four inches of gravel and a foot of mixed sand and field moss. Champion-Dwarf Bermuda has been used on the greens, with Bermuda T-419 used on the fairways, tees, and in the roughs.

The private golf club, open to Resort guests, to Resort Club members and vacation ownership residents. The course is and will continue to be managed by Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts.

PACIFICO COURSE

In June 2008, Pacifico Golf Course was named the number one golf course in the world by the readers of Conde Nast Traveler. The Nicklaus-designed course is set amid vistas of white-sand beaches and the surrounding Sierra Madre Mountains.

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 seasonal migration.

Enjoy the novelty and challenge of Hole 3B, dubbed “The Tail of the Whale. It is the worlds only natural island green.

The Punta Mita peninsula tropical landscape of palm trees and flowering trees add to the pleasure of playing this golf course, which is challenging for experienced golfers yet friendly for the beginner.

In contrast to the original course, the Bahia Golf Course offers more undulating fairways and greens, making putting technique an important part of the playing experience.

While the Resort’s beautiful natural landscape provides a stunning backdrop for the entire course, one of the most breathtaking holes has a downhill approach with a panoramic view of Bahia de Banderas.

The Punta Mita Golf Academy

Punta Mita Golf Club, Mexico’s premier golf destination featuring two beautiful Jack Nicklaus Signature courses, has announced the upcoming Punta Mita Golf Academy, to open this winter. Part of Punta Mita’s continued amenity expansion, the new Golf Academy will be under the direction of acclaimed instructor Tom F. Stickney II and will offer a variety of state-of-the-art lessons and on-course instruction.

Stickney brings almost 30 years of elite professional instruction experience to Punta Mita with accolades including Golf Magazine “Top 100 Instructor,” Golf Digest “Top Teacher,” Golf Tips “Top 30 Instructors,” and Trackman Master/Partner, among others. Stickney joined the Punta Mita Golf Club in April 2018 and is passionate about creating a unique golf curriculum for Golf Academy players of all ages and levels.

The goal of Stickney’s programming at the Academy is to help golfers improve fundamentals –pivot, plane, short game, putting, and shot selection– by actively practicing and analyzing them, both on and off the course. Results should not only modify and shape existing fundamentals, but also develop skills based on individual needs, ability level, and overall desire. This philosophy makes practice time more enjoyable and typically accelerates the learning curve.

The Punta Mita Golf Academy programs have been developed with top level training techniques and technology to provide the fastest and most effective results, like the Swing Analysis program which evaluates a golfer’s movement using 3D motion breakdown, a four-camera V1 digital video system, force plates, and a Trackman 4 launch monitor to understand and improve the swing specifically based on each player’s motion. These tools combined with a custom improvement plan will fast-track learning at any handicap level. The Golf Academy will also offer a climate-controlled environment with four covered hitting ranges and exclusive technology not found elsewhere in Mexico.

The Punta Mita Golf Academy will be available to Punta Mita residents and resort guests and will offer a variety of exclusive packages including:

•  Multi and Single Day Golf Schools
•  Individual Golf Instruction
•  Clinics, Golf 101, and On-Course Instruction
