Cabo Del Sol Golf Course
Ocean Course at Cabo Del
del Sol the magazine course-raters found Nicklaus' second design in
Los Cabos, Cabo del Sol, to be nothing short of spectacular. Golf
ranked it No. 70 in the world last year. In May, Golf Digest made it
one of its 10 five-star public courses anywhere. It has sea views
from almost every hole and three of them are right on the beach. The
rest of the layout wends uphill and down through ruggedly scenic
country, crossing canyons and edged by forget-about-it desert scrub.
Cabo del Sol has five sets of tees, and selecting the right one is
essential. There are several carries over canyons of no return,
doglegs that offer obvious consequences from one angle, mysteries
from another. Cabo del
Sol is a sure winner!
Cabo Real Golf Resort
Cabo Real Golf Course
Address: Km 19.5 Carr. Transpeninsular, San Jose Del Cabo, Baja Sur
designed by Robert Trent Jones II.
REAL Robert Trent Jones, Jr. set his goal
to create a quality course that appears to have been designed by its
setting, where every hole features ocean views." When you see the
impeccably groomed fairways and greens, you will agree that he has
not only achieved this goal, but surpassed it.
REAL Golf Course are laid out over more
than 7000 yards. With its numerous sand traps and arroyos, the
course provides a real challenge for low handicap golfers but is
still great fun for beginners. For those of you who would like a
challenge, from the back tees, the course offers a rating of 73.8
with the slope at a stern test of 135. From the first to the sixth
holes, you work your way up into the mountains. As you wind down the
mountain, sneak past the lake on the ninth fairway and stop for a
well-deserved snack at the club house, conveniently located at the
junction of the first, ninth, 10th, 18th and 36th holes. Then, head
on down to the Sea of Cortez for a more relaxing back nine. With a
variety of hazards and a choice of tees, this course presents both a
challenge to the champion and a delight to armature and beginners.
Cabo Palmilla Golf Course
Palmilla Golf Course
The first Jack Nicklaus
design in Latin America. The 9 holes, opened in 1993
was the first of the 18-hole venues to open in Los Cabos region.
Jack Nicklaus desert course: Palmilla
has hosted the Senior Grand Slam, so it has as much name recognition
and tradition as there is in the region. Every hole is a challenge
Cabo San Lucas Country Club
Campo de Carlos
Another 18 recently opened
and designed by P. Dye
San Lucas Country Club Pete Dye was contracted to design Cabo San
Lucas Country Club. The land is essentially flat, the last high spot
between a line of coastal hills and the harbor where the Sea of
Cortez meets the Pacific Ocean. It's an inviting kind of place where
you stand on every tee and think birdie. The fairways are amply
wide, and only the wildest shots can find the adjoining sandy,
mesquite and cactus-filled scrubland. The bunkering is strategic,
not penal; you can putt out of a lot of greenside bunkers. The
greens are almost all open in front and all but a couple slope
gently away to chipping areas. There are no forced carries over
canyons, washes or water. As entertaining as
Cabo San Lucas Country Club
can be, it suffers a bit not from its layout but from the lay of its
land. Each hole is distinct, but without elevated tees or dramatic
backdrops there's little in the way of memorability, a key
ingredient to the ranking of course quality.
Loreto Golf Course
Loreto Golf Course
A Fonatur design, with a world class
challenging 14th hole.
Bajamar Oceanfront Golf Resort
Bajamar Oceanfront Golf
links-style course. Tough and challenging.
The 18 original holes at
Bajamar, now Percy Clifford designed the Lagos and Vista nines, in
1976. In the early 1990s the course underwent a redesign, mostly to
the tees and greens, and a new irrigation system was installed. The
Oceano nine, designed by Robert Von Hagge, opened in June 1996.
Lagos nine: This is the lone par-35 layout, with three par-3
holes, two of them to greens guarded by water. Unless you're a long
hitter, don't try the back gold tees; they add nearly 400 yards
compared with the blues and result in a pair of par-4s that stretch
468 and 455 yards. There's no ocean to worry about here, but
fairway-landing areas are well protected by bunkers, as are most of
Vista nine: A traditional par-36
configuration, these nine holes, with fairways set in the middle of
scrub, give a British Isles flavor to Bajamar. Water is a concern
only on the approach to the par-5 second hole. The barranca areas
off the regularly clipped part of the course are considered lateral
hazards, and you may play the ball as it lies as long as you don't
ground your club.
Oceano nine: This nine provides the feel
of surfside golf in Hawaii, with the Pacific there to catch any
slices on the fifth through eighth holes. The fun really starts at
the fourth, where the approach on a relatively short par-4 is over a
chasm to a wide but shallow green. The fifth is the lone par-3 on
the side, with a tee shot over a cove from 169 (blue tees) or 183
(gold) yards out. The eighth, this nine's only par-5 has its tees
set directly above the ocean with a fairway that bends to the right.
Big hitters can gamble by taking the direct route over as much water
as they feel they can bite off. The green here is practically
encircled by sand.
