Las Huertas Golf Course, an executive 9-hole golf course located in San Pancho, Riviera Nayarit, was recently endorsed by the Mexican Golf Federation. The 3,958 yards, par 32 course was built in 2005-2006 and is located next to the beach, with several holes featuring ocean views. It was developed along soursops, cinnamons, mangos, tamarinds and many other native trees.
A considerable amount of work has been accomplished over the past four years to allow the course to comply with international standards. It was this past July 12, that Ana Luisa Hernández Acosta, President of the Handicap Ratings Committee of the Mexican Golf Federation, visited the course to evaluate and certify it.
“We’ve decided to open the course to the public,” commented Francisco Sandoval, who manages the course. “We have the support of municipal and state authorities to offer a new golf option in Riviera Nayarit. The inauguration will tentatively take place next October in order to cater to winter travelers, and that’s an additional reason why we strived to obtain this certification,” he added. For more information, please call the golf course at (311) 258-4521.
