Los Cabos, in the space of a few short years has become one of the best golf destinations in the world, and it comes as no surprise when you consider the quality of the courses on offer. The expertly designed golf courses in Los Cabos are located between the cities of San Jose del Cabo and Cabo San Lucas which is considered the marlin sport-fishing capital of the world. Los Cabos has definitely become the golf capital of Mexico.
A proliferation of world-class resorts and housing developments, line the beaches and sprawl over the mountains. The miracle is how space was found to build eight courses with such sweeping, immaculate fairways worthy of their championship status. To achieve this miracle some of the greatest names in golf were called in, including Jack Nicklaus, Tom Fazio, Robert Trent Jones II, Tom Weiskopf and The Dye Corporation.
Though considered by some as intimidating, the eight signature golf courses in Los Cabos are a bit pricey to play, but ultimately playable. Low handicappers will find them challenging and will appreciate the genius and skill that went into their designs, while less experienced players will be rewarded with a good day's combat. The magnificent terrain is comparable to that found in Arizona and California desert courses. What sets Los Cabos apart is the presence of the Sea of Cortez, a sparkling water-wonderland of incredible hues reaching as far south as the eye can see. Golfers here have an added bonus eleven months of rain free play.
The weather patterns are unparalleled, making for a consistently sunny climate perfect for uninterrupted leisure. Los Cabos has developed into a popular golfing destination by virtue of the number of outstanding golf courses and the consistent, top quality playing conditions.
Golf in Los Cabos continues to expand and grow in popularity. At least six more courses are in some stage of planning, including the new Puerto Los Cabos, scheduled for an exciting Greg Norman course.
