Norman’s Designs on Unique Short Course

Nayarit, Mexico: Mandarina, the luxury resort and residential destination developed by RLH Properties on Mexico’s Pacific Coast, has announced plans for a new golf course designed by Greg Norman.

As part of the extensive Mandarina Experiences programme, which offers concierge-style services and excursions to residents and guests, the golf club will feature a 10-hole short course.

It will be comprised of par-three holes, taking inspiration from iconic holes at famous courses around the world, such as Augusta National, Pebble Beach, Pine Valley and Royal Melbourne.

The course will provide a new facet of leisure and entertainment at Mandarina and another unique amenity in The Flatlands, the sprawling green landscape between the property’s mountain peaks. Completion of the new golf course is slated for 2025.

Nestled just east of the Pacific Ocean’s shoreline, select holes will overlook the Sierra del Vallejo mountain range, as well as the existing Mandarina Polo & Equestrian Club, an amenity encompassing over 10 acres.

“I am honoured to be working yet again with RLH Properties on this incredible property in Mexico,” said Norman, CEO of Greg Norman Golf Course Design (GNGCD), a Full Business Member of the Asian Golf Industry Federation.

He added: “The course at Mandarina will be unlike any other. Each par-three hole is an inspiration from some of the most iconic and classic courses from around the world, so playing it will produce a welcome sense of familiarity.

“We’re excited to provide golfers of all ages and abilities with an unforgettable experience at each hole.”

GNGCD has worked previously with RLH Properties at El Camaleón at Mayakoba in Riviera Maya, Mexico. Among the more than 120 other courses it has designed are The Bluffs Ho Tram Strip in Vietnam, The Oaks Course at TPC San Antonio, and Real El Prat Golf Club in Barcelona.
