Grupo Vidanta recently announced its first night-time golf tournament. Titled “Golf Night Out—Day of the Dead Edition,” the event will take place on Wednesday, October 31, starting at 6 pm at El Nayar course in Nuevo Vallarta.
The tournament will be played on a competitive 9-hole A Go-Go format played by foursomes with a shotgun start. There is a minimum handicap of 60 required to register, and the cost will be $1,500 pesos for club members and $1,850 pesos for the public.
“We want to provide an entirely new experience in the region, because playing golf at night is truly impressive. We want to create a perfect setting and we’re setting up fairways with lighted areas, including greens and flag positions, and even the holes will have integrated LED lighting. Furthermore, the decoration will be related to the traditional Mexican celebration of the Day of the Dead,” said Leonardo Bonilla, course manager.
The registration fee includes a welcome dinner and drinks throughout the event, including beverages at the course and the awards ceremony. The organizers have set a $450 peso fee for attending non-players. For more information, please visit www.vidantagolf.com.
