"After more than 47 years of revolutionizing the tourism and entertainment industries, we continue to create the most extraordinary experiences and are proud to show the world one of our most innovative resorts, offering the world’s most outstanding golf players, their families, caddies, fans, and guests a myriad of exclusive global options for fun, gastronomy, wellness, and nature, as well as the opportunity to enjoy a PGA TOUR tournament and play on our courses," said Iván Chávez, executive vice president of Grupo Vidanta.
