Golf

The Four Seasons Punta Mita Golf Club (about an hour's drive north of Puerto Vallarta on the Riviera Nayarit) is now home to two Jack Nicklaus Signature courses. In June 2008, Pacifico was named the top golf course in the world by the readers of Condé Nast Traveler.

Pacifico boasts 19 incredible fairways and the world's only natural island green. To play its signature Tail of the Whale third hole, you must carry your drive about 180 yards across the Pacific Ocean!

In low tide, if you haven't hit your ball in the water, walk over a rocky ocean-floor pathway to putt. The less adventurous can opt to play the alternate landlocked hole 3A.

The Jack Nicklaus Signature design takes full advantage of vistas of the surrounding Sierra Madre Mountains, white coral-sand beaches and a tropical landscape of palms and bougainvillea.

The Bahia course may be less dramatic, but the severely contoured greens will challenge your putting skills. The grand finale fairways 17 and 18 take golfers within steps of Punta Mita's famed El Faro beach - a popular surfing destination.

These tracts are in such impeccable condition, you'd swear they trim the fairways with manicure scissors and sift the sand. And just when you're feeling a bit thirsty, waitresses arrive by golf cart with lemon-scented iced towels and atomizers of Evian water.
