Golfing Los Cabos

By Tato González


Did you know that Los Cabos is the premier golfing destination in Mexico? Boasting over 15 Super Golf Courses, nowhere else in our country offers such a diverse array of challenges all in one location. Despite the stunning backdrop of the Pacific Ocean, the Sea of Cortés, and the majestic Sierra de la Laguna mountains, the real draw of golfing in Los Cabos lies in the courses themselves. You’ll need a repertoire of good shots and a bit of luck to navigate them successfully.

While most courses boast top-quality greens and fairways, they are nestled amidst sand dunes, desert terrain, and rocky outcrops. Expect to encounter sandy arroyos, even for the most seasoned golfers. Wind is a significant factor to consider, particularly along the Pacific coastline where gusty winds prevail year-round. Golfers skilled at hitting low-trajectory shots may gain an advantage against the wind.

The varying elevations in mountainous courses offer both breathtaking views and unique challenges. Adjusting club selection for downhill shots with a tailwind can be thrilling, while playing uphill into the wind presents a formidable test.

If accuracy off the tee isn’t your strong suit, ensure you have plenty of extra balls on hand to avoid searching among the semi-desertic mountains and cactus. Putting on greens near the beach is a joy, with the possibility of spotting whales breaching as you line up your shot. Birdwatchers will delight in sightings of cardinals, hawks, Mexican eagles, and numerous endemic species.

For a truly enjoyable experience, remember to apply ample sunblock as the sun’s radiation in Cabo is intense. Wear a hat and sunglasses for added protection, especially during the summer months when temperatures soar. Stay hydrated throughout your round, taking advantage of comfort stations that offer refreshing beverages and traditional Mexican snacks to keep your energy levels up. Prepare yourself for an unforgettable golfing adventure in Los Cabos, where breathtaking vistas, challenging holes, and plenty of fun await!
