Right here in Ajijic, Lake Chapala we have a very beautiful executive 9 hole golf course called the Chula Vista Golf and Country Club. It is located at KM 53 Carretera a Chapala-Jocotepec and their phone # is 766-2515. This also the entrance to Upper Chula vista.
This is a golf course that I have played at for many years for a number of reasons. One, it is very close and two people can get around usually in two and a half hours so your entire day is not taken up.
Two, although it is only 9 holes and relatively short it is a very challenging golf course. The fairways are very narrow and one has to be accurate with their tee shots or they might well end up in the arroyo.
Three, it is beautifully maintained and two or three holes have a breathtaking view of Lake Chapala. The fairways are green, the greens are well kept and there are flowers and flowering trees everywhere. Four, there are no carts and it is a very hilly terrain so one gets very good exercise as you have to be a mountain goat for some of the holes.
Five, the caddies are wonderful and very happy to help you improve you game. However, they are very polite so you have to ask them if you want help.
Six, there is a nice area when you can enjoy a delicious breakfast or lunch or have a beverage of your choice after your round.
Seven, you can buy long or short term memberships for good discounts or just pay as you play. Everyone is welcome.
Eight, the locker rooms have all been updated and are very nicely appointed.
They also have regular tournaments which you may participate in if you choose and a very good pro should you want to take lessons to increase the enjoyment of your game.
A regular round of golf is $400.00 pesos and $300.00 pesos after 2:00 p.m.
Caddy fees are $120.00 pesos for 18 holes and $80.00 pesos for nine. Caddies are a must.
On week-ends and holidays green fees are $450.00 pesos and $350.00 pesos after 2:00 p.m.
Chula Vista also has rates for 1 month, 3 months, 6 months, and 1 year for singles and pairs ranging from $ 4,280.00 to $19,250.00 pesos.
Storage for your clubs is also available at reasonable rates.
