Golf legend Jack Nicklaus and the Nicklaus Design team will be designing two 18-hole championship golf courses in the Cabo Pacifica resort on the southern tip of Baja Peninsula.

Ernesto Coppel, president and CEO of Pueblo Bonito Oceanfront Resorts and Spas, recently announced the development that will enhance the 1,850-acre resort community adjacent to Cabo San Lucas which stretches for three miles along the coastline.

“Pueblo Bonito is one of the leading luxury hotel companies in Mexico, and with Jack Nicklaus and the Nicklaus Design team, we are ready for the challenge of creating the best golf courses in Latin America,” Coppel said.

Situated on the Land’s End at the southernmost point in Baja, the courses will include some of the most diverse terrain seen in world-class golf.

“I get excited about each new project we undertake anywhere around the world,” Nicklaus said, “but when we have the opportunity to work on a unique site with a number of dramatic natural elements, it really gets the creative juices flowing. Cabo Pacifica is one of those sites.”

Already in the area of the new additions are Pueblo Bonito Sunset Beach Resort and Spa and Pueblo Bonito Pacifica Holistic Retreat and Spa, two luxury resorts near the exclusive Montecristo gated community.

Cabo Pacifca offers residents and visitors an array of perks, including waterfalls, biking and hiking trails, botanical gardens, nature and sport parks, a club house, a small village and community center and a private helicopter. And this is one of seven properties owned by Pueblo Bonito Oceanfront Resorts and Spas, four of which are in Cabo San Lucas, two in Mazatlan and one in Puerto Vallarta.
