Championship golf began in the Cabo San Lucas area over a decade ago, with the development of the Palmilla Resort and its famous golf course and club house. This was the first signature golf course in Mexico designed by Jack Nicklaus, and he has since designed two other local courses (El Dorado and Cabo del Sol's Ocean Course). Palmilla is also the home of the 1997 Senior Slam, watched by millions on television with its spectacular surrounding landscaping and ocean view from every hole. This event, won by Hale Irwin, will always be remembered as one of the most exciting matches in golfing history.
Golf Tournaments in Los Cabos attract many golfers from all over the world keen to play its beautiful yet challenging courses.
