Puerto Los Cabos Golf Club, Mexico – by Dave Finn
Los Cabos Mexico lies at the tip of the Baja California Sur Peninsula also affectionately known as Land’s End. It’s here where the mountains and desert merge with two seas.
The Puerto Los Cabos Golf Club is unique in that it features two distinctive nine-hole layouts by two iconic golfers. The Mission Course was designed by Greg Norman and opened in 2007. It offers plenty of elevation changes with wide fairways and large fast greens. The 6th, an intimidating downhill par 3 that drops some 105 feet features the Sea of Cortez as your backdrop may be his signature hole but the next hole is my personal favorite. This visually stunning par 5 sweeps downhill like an alpine ski run then finishes with to a well-protected green perched on the edge of the expansive two mile sand beach.
The Marina Course is a Jack Nicklaus design that opened a year later featuring wide rolling fairways that resemble ski mogels with very few level lies. #15 is considered his signature hole, a par 3 that runs parallel to the beach. The 18th is a great finishing hole where the irrigation reservoir comes into play on both your tee and approach shot.
The greens here are deceptive. They break more than you think and almost always to the ocean. Both courses have Paspalum greens and fairways and offer magnificent views of the ocean and the Sierra de la Laguna Mountains. The biggest difference between the two, besides the moguls, is that Norman has built larger, more traditional tees with grass between each block whereas Nicklaus has smaller tee areas surrounded entirely by sand.
Future development will see both courses expand to a full 18 but for now you can challenge the Bear and the Shark in a single round. Puerto Los Cabos Golf Club it is located only 8 minutes from the International Airport and just north of San Jose del Cabo and I’d recommend it as your first stop on your tour of the area. Plan on spending a leisurely day here since, included in your green fees, you can fully enjoy the freshly prepared food and beverage service at holes 4, 8, 13 and 17.
