The Punta Mita Gourmet and Golf Classic, an annual celebration of world-class food, wine and golf, is set for April 11-14th in the beautiful resort enclave of Punta Mita, Mexico.
Now in its third year, this iconic event invites guests to experience the ultimate fusion of world-class food, wine and golf including special events, tastings, dining experiences, and the Punta Mita Cup, a two-day golf tournament played on two spectacular oceanfront Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Courses, the Bahia and Pacifico.
The renowned Pacifico course, with eight holes directly facing or playing alongside the Pacific Ocean, features the “Tail of the Whale,” the renowned par 3 that features the world’s only natural island green. The Bahia course, Nicklaus’ second championship course in Punta Mita, has six ocean holes and opened in late 2008.
Golf and Gourmet packages including accommodations at the St. Regis Punta Mita Resort and entry into the Punta Mita Cup are available through Nicklaus Travel, the official travel partner of the Nicklaus Companies. Special Early Bird pricing is available until February 15th.
