Cabo has rapidly developed its golf scene in similar style to its nightlife, only not as showy. The result has catapulted this Baja city to the pinnacle of Mexico's tourism industry. It is nearly impossible not to golf on a course without some sort of PGA affiliation. Legends such as Jack Nicklaus, Rob Dye, and Robert Trent Jones can all claim to have had their hands in the design of Cabo's most cinematic greens.
Five championship golf courses decorate the once-tiny Mexican town. The facilities at The Plamilla, Cabo del Sol, Cabo San Lucas Country Club, Cabo Real, and Camp de Golf San Jose all employ the inherent beauty of the Baja to impart courses iconic for the play and scenery.
While other more exclusive course, such as those adjacent to ME Cabo, offer a much sought-after silent and secluded golfing environment, there are two other that, although a little more populated, still give those who tee from its greens the authentic PGA experience.
El Dorado at Cabo Real is a newly Nicklaus-designed course, featuring 6 championship holes that tour along the ocean and 12 that wind through two canyons and four lakes.
The course at Cabo del Sol is distinguished by a 70th rank among the top 100 in the world. Described as having “three of the best ocean finishing holes in the world" by Jack Nicklaus, it also features a mile and a half of ocean-front play and a Golf Digest ‘Top 10 public course’ ranking.
Whichever route you choose, small and secluded or large and iconic, the fact remains that golfing conditions in Cabo are unrivalled and an experience unlike any other in the world.
