QUIVIRA LOS CABOS NAMED BEST NEW INTERNATIONAL COURSE IN 2014!!If you're a golfer, then Los Cabos is a premier vacation destination for you. Simply put, there are more courses lining the shores of the Pacific Ocean and the Sea of Cortez then you could play in a week at a two-round-a-day pace. Most have spectacular ocean views from select holes. However, only one has views of the ocean from EVERY hole – and that's Quivira Los Cabos Golf Club. The product of Mexican developer Ernesto Coppel and golf legend turned legendary course designer Jack Nicklaus –Quivira's layout starts at near sea level then climbs 350 feet up rocky cliffs never taking leave of awe-inspiring views. A few rounds here are on my bucket list and they should be on any dimpled-ball addict worth the wooden tees in their bags.
The majority of golf courses are found in the Tourist Corridor, the area between San Jose del Cabo and Cabo San “Our team has worked with the canvas Mother Nature provided to create what we hope is one of the most spectacular courses in the world,” said Jack Nicklaus at a recent visit with members of the press. One trip up the cartpath to the 5th tee and I'm sure you'd agree. It stretches about 3/4 of a mile snaking its way along the cliffs above the Pacific Ocean with views that simply go on forever. A true golfer's paradise and no doubt one of the "greatest drives in Golf."
Quivira Los Cabos - an all inclusive golf club with amenities, amenities, amenities!
It Doesn't Stop with Great Design and Location
“This property afforded us a rare opportunity because of its topographic diversity and natural environment," says Nicklaus. And boy oh boy is he ever right. At 7,224 yards the par 72 course has more oceanfront exposure that any other course in Los Cabos and more challenges than meets the eye. Elevated tees and greens, undulating fairways, rewards for well played shots and ugh-inspiring hazards for those errant efforts we so much would like to forget. Nicklaus' summation that the topography of this natural environment is what makes Quivira the jewel in the crown of Baja golf is spot on.
Yet, if the course design was all that was offered at Quivira, one might leave feeling somehow unfulfilled. Rest easy scratch golfers and hackers alike.... this is much more than just a golf course. This is all-inclusive links nirvana! The $40 million golf facility boasts four comfort stations with a halfway house that serves up tuna sliders, fish tacos and flights of Tequila. Add a gorgeous clubhouse with bar and steakhouse, double-ended driving range, short-game practice area and an elongated putting green flanked by the Pacific Ocean and you have the makings of what may just be the best golf experience in Mexico.
Nestled within what promises to be one of Mexico's most sought after master planned real estate developments, Quivira is much more than just a golf club, it is in fact an 1,850 acre paradise envisioned by Ernesto Coppel of Pueblo Bonito fame.. Residential developments include private homes and villas, condos and well planned commercial space to include hotel, restaurants and mixed use space while still maintaining the stunning natural beauty that this stretch of coastal desert has to offer.
Quiviria Golf Club officially opened October, 2014 and has garnered a great deal of positive press. Guests of any of the oceanfront Pueblo Bonito Resorts will have access as will owners of properties in Copala, Montecristo Estates and Novaispania Residences. We'll certainly be keeping our ears to the ground and our eye on the ball in anticipation.
