Greg Norman Tapped to Design Golf Course for Grupo Vidanta

Greg Norman, known the world over as The Shark for the way he ate up competitors on the golf course, will design the second golf course for Grupo Vidanta, one of Mexico's leading resort developers, at their Nuevo Vallarta resort. The Greg Norman Signature golf course will feature 18 holes located along the beaches of Nuevo Vallarta between the western Sierra Madre mountain range and Banderas Bay. The golf course will be the second golf course at the resort and will be owned and operated by Vidanta Golf.

Ground breaking for the new course is scheduled for early 2012. Completion of the first nine holes is targeting November 2012 with the back nine targeting mid-2013.

Nuevo Vallarta is fast becoming the golf capital of Mexico. The Norman-designed golf course joins a Nicklaus Design course also owned and operated by Vidanta Golf in Nuevo Vallarta. With three more golf courses to follow, a total of five golf courses are set.
