NUEVO VAL­LARTA, NA­YARIT, MX – Vidanta Re­sorts and Vidanta Golf, Mexico’s lead­ing de­vel­oper and golf course op­er­a­tor, along with Kem­perS­ports, the lead­ing golf man­age­ment com­pany in North Amer­ica, cel­e­brate the open­ing of the new­est course in the Vidanta Golf port­fo­lio, the Nor­man Sig­na­ture Course at Vidanta Nuevo Val­larta. Vidanta part­nered with in­ter­na­tion­al­lyrec­og­nized golf leg­end and course de­signer Greg Nor­man to build this cham­pi­onship course. It joins the renowned Nick­laus De­sign Course as the des­ti­na­tion’s sec­ond venue for golf. Open for pre­view play this sum­mer, the of­fi­cial grand open­ing was cel­e­brated with a rib­bon cut­ting cer­e­mony, clinic and ques­tion and an­swer ses­sion with Greg Nor­man for plat­inum mem­bers of Vidanta Re­sorts.

“As Mexico’s lead­ing golf course de­vel­oper, Vidanta is con­sis­tently on the fore­front of golf devel­op­ment and tourism,” said Iván Chavez, Ex­ec­u­tive Vice Pres­i­dent of Grupo Vidanta. “We strive to bring the very best in the in­dus­try to our guests, which is why we part­nered with Greg Nor­man for the de­sign of this sig­na­ture course.”

The Nor­man Sig­na­ture Course en­com­passes the finest in golf with un­sur­passed course con­di­tion­ing on wall-to-wall Pas­palum play­ing sur­faces. The ex­cit­ing lay­out winds along the banks of the Ameca River pro­vid­ing views of the Sierra Madres from ev­ery hole. Gen­er­ous land­ing ar­eas give way to large un­du­lat­ing greens pro­tected by cav­ernous bunkers. In­dige­nous trees, na­tive grasses and jun­gle sur­round the core course lay­out which is un­in­ter­rupted by hous­ing and civ­i­liza­tion through­out. Playa­bil­ity and en­joy­ment were key in the de­sign process for this 18 hole par 73 that is as chal­leng­ing from the cham­pi­onship tees as it is for­giv­ing from the for­ward tees. All this be­gins with a trip across the world’s long­est golf cart sus­pen­sion bridge span­ning the Ameca River from Na­yarit to Jalisco.

“When de­sign­ing this course, re­spect­ing and pro­mot­ing the con­ser­va­tion of eco­log­i­cally sen­si­tive ar­eas was of pri­mary con­cern. As a re­sult, rout­ing was dic­tated by na­ture, ac­cord­ing to dense veg­e­ta­tion cor­ri­dors, streams and wet­lands,” said Greg Nor­man. “We re­ally en­joyed work­ing with the Vidanta team on this de­sign, as they know and un­der­stand golfers’ needs and ex­pec­ta­tions for a world-class course. Ul­ti­mately both high and low hand­i­cap­pers will re­ally en­joy play­ing, as it of­fers the per­fect tri­fecta of beauty, fun and chal­lenge.”
