Punta Mita Golf is in full swing!

Golf on either of Punta Mita’s courses designed by the legendary Jack Nicklaus is a special
treat, and one of the favored pastimes of a visit to Punta Mita, whether you are a resort guest or
an owner here. Both Jack Nicklaus Signature courses at Punta Mita are spectacular, offering
extraordinary ocean views and world­class play.

The Pacífico, with eight holes directly facing or playing alongside the Pacific Ocean, features
the “Tail of the Whale”, an optional par­three hole with the only natural island green in the world. Bahía, which opened for play in late 2009, has become known for its challenging and
undulating fairway and green complexes, offering a wonderful counterpart to Pacifico for
golf aficionados. Both courses provide tee times reserved exclusively for Punta Mita property
owners and their guests, along with guests of Four Seasons and St. Regis Resorts.

Following is a roundup of golf­centric activities coming up:

• Club Punta Mita members enjoy weekly golf get-togethers. Wednesdays, starting at
12:30, Mens Day
sees lively play with a – slightly ­­ competitive air, while women enjoy
their amiable day of play on Thursdays
. Both days offer the option of 9­ or 18­ holes,
finishing up the afternoon with snacks, drinks and conversation at the Tail of the Whale
Clubhouse restaurant.
