The Details

Los Cabos Convention & Visitors Bureau

Los Cabos is home to an impressive collection of championship golf courses with designs from golf legends such as Jack Nicklaus, Greg Norman and Pete Dye. With several new courses in various stages of development, Los Cabos continues to solidify its position as one of the world’s premiere golf destinations. Among the expanding collection of championship golf course offerings in Los Cabos, the following are the newest and hottest courses that have opened over the course of the past year or are currently in development: 

Quivira Los Cabos
With a spectacular backdrop along one of Mexico’s most dramatic stretches of oceanfront property, the two Jack Nicklaus designed courses at Quivira Los Cabos promise a memorable golf experience. Construction began during the summer of 2010 on the first 18-holes of the Jack Nicklaus course with an expected completion date in early 2012. The second phase of development will begin in 2012, with 18 additional holes expected to be completed in the latter half of 2013. The Jack Nicklaus courses will then be separated into two separate golf experiences: an 18-hole course open to resort guests and a private 18-hole course. The courses are set along massive sand dunes, rugged cliffs and white-sand beaches.

Cabo Riviera Marina
The scenic, 18-hole Pete Dye Signature Golf Course, with the option to add an additional nine holes, features a unique waterfront community surrounded by an ecological landscape. Scheduled for completion in late 2012, the Cabo Riviera Marina Golf Course is suitable for amateur golfers as well as seasoned professionals. 

Puerto Los Cabos
Set along the beaches of San Jose del Cabo, the destination welcomed this premier course in 2008 with the opening of 18 holes: the nine-hole Marina Course designed by Jack Nicklaus and the nine-hole Mission Course designed by Greg Norman. The courses are open 365 days a year and offer both public and private options for golfers. The remaining 18 holes are currently under development and scheduled for completion in 2012. Puerto Los Cabos will have two separate courses: a public 18-hole Jack Nicklaus course and a private 18-hole Greg Norman course.

For travelers looking for great golf deals, several Los Cabos hotels and resorts have developed special Time 2 Golf packages that include complimentary rounds of golf, special amenities, sport massages and cart and club rental.
