Los Cabos is one of the best places in Mexico for championship-level golf. These courses were designed to provide the ultimate in both playing strategy and beauty.
Jack Nicklaus-designed Los Cabos Golf Courses
You have probably heard of Cabo del Sol’s Ocean Course, designed by Jack Nicklaus, with breathtaking ocean views to accompany the challenging golf game. Described by course designer Jack Nicklaus himself as “the best golf property I’ve ever seen.” This 18-hole, award-winning course is one of the few courses in the world that offers dramatic views of mountain, desert and sea. Located at the tip of the Baja peninsula along the 20-mile Corridor between Cabo San Lucas and San Jose del Cabo, The Ocean Course is the centerpiece of the 1,800-acre residential resort community of Cabo del Sol. Praised by Nicklaus for having the “three finest holes in golf,” from the Ocean Course’s signature 17th hole, golfers must tee off from a cliff top and carry their ball over a sandy cove to a green surrounded by rock outcroppings from the Sea of Cortez.
The truly unique Desert Course designed by Tom Weiskopf offers its own challenges. This masterful design features mesmerizing ocean views from all 18 holes, each artfully sculpted through incredible natural surroundings. A unique combination of desert and ocean, canyon-like arroyos and a variety of foliage creates a breathtaking backdrop as well as a significant challenge. The course varies in length from 4,810 to 7,100 with undulating greens, challenging elevation changes and dramatic bunkering.
San Jose del Cabo Golf
At Puerto Los Cabos, you can play holes designed by Greg Norman. Play sunny San Jose del Cabo, surrounded by mountains and the Sea of Cortez, the Norman Course at Puerto Los Cabos is a championship-level, world-class layout that takes full advantage of tremendous changes in elevation to capture panoramic views.
At Cabo Real, the championship course by Robert Trent Jones, Jr. takes you up the mountainside and back down to sea level in 18 holes.
If you want the spectacular views but a less intense round of golf, head to the Cabo San Lucas Country Club, where the 18th hole overlooks Land’s End.
Bottom line? Wherever you play, it’s going to be impressive.
Mexico is a world of its own.
