Default Puerto Los Cabos Golf Club - Los Cabos, Mexico

Pictures are at the bottom for those too lazy to read.

Played Puerto Los Cabos Golf Club on Christmas Day which is a Greg Norman, Jack Nicklaus design with the front 9 Mission Course designed by Greg and back 9 Marina Course designed by Jack.

Had the first twilight tee time booked at 1:30 PM at a discounted hotel rate ($135 USD), got to the club around 12:15 PM and check in was simple and efficient with a very nice bag guy who unloaded my clubs from the van and loaded onto the cart and cleaned the clubs. Went to the range where the starter was and he advised that I could probably jump off early if I wanted to as there was no one booked prior to my tee time.

As I hadn't swung a club on grass since October I decided to get some proper practice in and tee'd off around 1:15 PM. Pace was excellent with the course being practically empty and I finished the round as a solo in 3 Hours 15 minutes taking my time (lots of photos taken and food and booze consumed).

Overall I didn't personally find Puerto Los Cabos to be an overly challenging course as the fairways were all pretty wide and forgiving and none of the greens were ridiculously undulated or narrow, but obviously wind is the biggest teeth so proper club selection and line was key as there were lots of bunkers and desert hazards.

Never the less the course was in absolutely amazing condition and set the bar really high for what I expect for Cabo golf. The views of the Ocean, Mountains and the surrounding desert scenery were absolutely stunning. The pace was amazing as the course was practically empty and there were stations located every few holes where it was all inclusive food and drinks included with your green fee. Carts came with GPS and coolers so you could stock up on beer or gatorade (or whatever your drink of choice was) at the stations.

Below are some of the pictures I took as I had tons of time to enjoy the course:

Nice looking track and great review. I've played all over Mexico but never in Cabo.

The 15th reminds me of a round I played years ago. A beginner buddy pulled his drive onto the beach and made the somewhat legitimate argument that since there were no visible stakes, he should be able to play it from there. We let him climb down to find it and it turns out it was rolling up and down with the waves. He waited for the wave to recede and the ball settled for a half second. He took an almighty whack at it...and put it into the mangroves on the other side of the hole, lol.

Thanks Ace,

I definitely pushed one right that ended up on the beach and was contemplating hitting it except the green was actually located on a ledge and it wouldnt have been an easy climb down to the beach. I probably saw at least a half dozen balls there (probably would have been worth the trek down since most people in Cabo seemed to play ProVs )

I would highly recommend Cabo as a golf destination. Great variety of courses, tons of picturesque ocean/mountain/desert views and fun courses overall with outstanding weather. Only downside is that golf there is pricey, but its definitely a good spot for bringing either the wife/gf or going with the boys (great deep sea fishing also). That being said the courses IMO are mostly worth the money and you can get decent deals either through your hotel (hotel dependent I'm sure) or through teeoff.com.
