Cabo San Lucas - Cabo del Sol - both courses par 72

The Ocean Course was designed by Jack Nicklaus and it stretches for more than a mile along a coastline of craggy rock outcroppings and sun-washed shores. This championship layout is praised by Nicklaus himself for having the "three finest finishing holes in all of golf." The 5th and signature 17th holes are among the best in the world, according to Golf Magazine.

The Desert Course is a masterful Tom Weiskopf design and features mesmerizing ocean views from all 18 holes, each artfully sculpted through incredible natural surroundings. A unique combination of desert and ocean, canyon-like arroyos and a variety of foliage creates a breathtaking backdrop as well as a significant challenge. The course varies in length from 4,810 to 7,100 with undulating greens, challenging elevation changes and dramatic bunkering. The Desert Course is rated no. 6 in Mexico by Golf Digest placing it behind only the Ocean Course among Los Cabos' resort golf offerings.

Huatulco - Tangolunda - par 72

Most of the holes on this championship course are narrow off the tee so you have to be accurate! If you are, you can score well. The course is well watered and a great challenge!

The El Tigre golf course was designed by Von Hagge, Smelek and Baril - designers of over 200 of the world’s finest courses.

Zihuatanejo / Ixtapa - Club de Golf Marina - par 72

Robert von Hagge designed this championship links course in 1994 with the thought of taking advantage of the natural surroundings. The courses' "dunes-style" topography requires both accurate tees and approach shots in order to navigate the rolling terrain, expansive bunkers and water hazards that come into play on 14 of the 18 holes. As the greens are large and undulating, getting to them is only half the challenge! Ranked by Golf Digest magazine as one of Mexico's best, this tropical paradise is a utopia for golfers of all levels.

Ensenada - Bajamar - par 71

This beautiful seaside course has holes reminiscent of Pebble Beach with great views and spectacular holes at every turn! The 18 original holes at Bajamar, now the Lagos and Vista nines, were designed by Percy Clifford 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.

Bajamar offers a scenic and memorable golfing experience to players of all skill levels and abilities.
