Course Overview

Punta Mita Club de Golf - Pacifico Course, an unparalleled private championship course, is distinguished by breathtaking ocean views and 200 pristine acres of lush, rolling hills and flowering landscapes. The 7,104-yard, par-72 course features eight ocean-side holes and an optional "19th" par-3 hole with a natural island green, making it the first of its kind in Mexico.

Set on a natural rock outcropping known as a site for whale watching, the signature island hole, "The Tail of the Whale," features the added challenge of an oceanside tee on the beach, with an undulating green designed in the shape of a whale's tail, situated 199 yards off the coast. A tee box is based on the mainland, while the putting green is set on the idyllic natural offshore island.

Developed with careful environmental planning, the 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, has been preserved in and around the course. While 13 acres are sodded, the remaining area will be sprigged using an on-site nursery.

Greens are designed to USGA standards, consisting of four inches of gravel and a foot of mixed sand and field moss. Champion-Dwarf Bermuda is used on the greens, with Bermuda T-419 used on the fairways, tees, and in the roughs.
