Riviera Nayarit Promotes Golf, Operators Offer Packages


Tour operators are helping to spread the word about River Nayarit’s increasing golf product. Many are offering packages to introduce your golfing clients this hot golf destination.

Championship courses designed by Jack Nicklaus, Robert Von Hagge, Jim Lipe (Nicklaus’ head designer) and Percy Clifford are already open, and by February 2008, two new courses designed by Greg Norman and Jack Nicklaus will debut. By adding these two courses to seven existing signature courses in the region, Riviera Nayarit is making a major play to become one of Mexico’s premier golf destinations.
