A new golfing academy is to open in Mexico

Late June will be the opening date for the new Jack Nicklaus Golf Academy at the Nicklaus Design Nayar Golf Course, according to Grupo Vidanta, the golf course and resort developer.

Mexico is a favourite holiday destination for golfers and non-golfers alike. This will be the third Nicklaus Academy in Mexico and the fifteenth of its kind in the world. The facility hopes to marry the playing philosophy of Nicklaus with the excellent playing and coaching facilities to help develop talent.

Sports travel insurance is a favourite option for people who may be carrying expensive sports equipment to a foreign country.

Jesus Torres, managing director of Vidanta Golf said: "The new Nicklaus Golf Academy is another indicator of how Nuevo Vallarta is quickly becoming the premier golf destination in Mexico. "Even if people staying at the resort are not great golfers, these new facilities give them a great opportunity to learn the sport of golf from some great instructors."

Bruce Summerhays Jr, the facility's Director of Instruction is a PGA professional and said: "I am very proud to be part of the Jack Nicklaus Academy of Golf at the Nayar Golf Course, and the opportunity it presents for all golfers and soon-to-be golfers in Mexico."
