We found a very fun article in a very fun online magazine called Arnie's Kingdom. Many of you golfers out there likely know about this

Thanks to Dale, Ross and Ross's family we have found some photos of the back nine that Niklaus Golf is helping to develop at the Nayar Golf Course in Nuevo Vallarta. Yes, there is work under way. Rumor has it the course may be open in June 2010.
We have also received photos from Brenda and Thom that show portions of the El Manglar Golf Course at the Riviera Maya location. Very nicely manicured and maintained. It is no wonder so many of us want to spend our vacation time on the course.

Sometime during 2009, Grupo Vidanta changed the name of their golf division to Vidanta Golf Courses from Albatross Golf Courses. The courses remain the same. Just the name has changed. At least that is what we have learned.
The course that is changing the most is the Nayar Golf Course. Nine holes are currently under construction, and the course will become an 18 hole course.
The layout will be interesting. It appears the first nine will head toward El Tigre Golf Course, which is north east of the Grand Mayan. The second nine will run two thirds of the way to the highway and back. Not sure where it will end.
Hopefully we will get some additional information from our members and Grupo Vidanta. Stay tuned.
Opening date is scheduled for April 24, 2010 or earlier.
We are now officially a Vedanta brand. Vedanta has established separate entities, and Albatross Golf Courses is one of them. According to Vedanta, Albatross Golf Courses is the largest operator of golf courses in Mexico. See their page at http://www.vidantagolf.com.
Each golf course has its own name. The Nuevo Vallarta is now the Nayar Golf course (9 holes, with 9 additional holes under development), Acapulco's course is the Copra Golf Course (18 holes), Puerto Penasco's course is the Peninsula de Cortes (18 holes), the Riviera Maya course is called El Manglar (18 holes) and the course at Los Cabos is called Punta Sur (9 holes).
The course at the Grand Mayan Nuevo Vallarta (Nayar Golf Course) costs about $50 per 18 hole round for a visitor. A visitor is an owner in one of the three Mayan brands, their guests and those who are exchanging in through RCI.
Additionally, the course requires caddies, which is 100 pesos for a 9 hole round and 150 pesos for an 18 hole round. Tip not included.
Cart is included in the cost of the round.
Rent the clubs for $35 per round, regardless of the number of holes played.
Driving range is great. We paid $10 for all the balls we wanted to hit. Otherwise, the cost is about $3 for a small basket of balls.
At the range, there is a putting green and a pitching area, complete with sand.
Beverages and snacks are across the street. This snack shack is owned by the Grand Mayan, so you can charge your purchases on your room.
BTW, the course across the street is a good course as well. It is called El Tigre. No caddy requirement, but the cost to those staying at a Grupo Mayan property is about $125 to $150 per 18 hole round. My son in law, who is a golfer, says the course is challenging and long.
There are lots of other great courses in the Puerto Vallarta and Nuevo Vallarta area as well. Also, the other Albatross Golf Courses look very attractive as well. Lots to do at these Vedanta Resorts.
