Costa Palmas Golf Club

4-star: Above average course - well worth a visit.

Est. 2019

Costa Palmas Golf Club is the first championship golf course created on the East Cape of Los Cabos, an area previously the preserve of scuba divers, fishermen and others with a thirst for out-of-the-way adventure. Set directly alongside the Sea of Cortez, with the Sierra de la Laguna Mountains as a backdrop, the excellent quality design exudes many characteristics of a seaside links.

The out-and-back layout serves-up three varied golfing environments. The opener sets the tone for the first six holes, played across a links-like sandy dunescape. If you don't hit the pristine emerald fairways from the tee, there's every likelihood you'll find your ball sitting in large areas of exposed sand.

From the par-5 7th the layout transitions into more of an "upland" style, with mountain views predominating. Around the large undulating greens the threat of sand is reinforced by many rustically shaped bunkers. The final "movement" of Robert Trent Jones' "symphony" comes in a closing stretch played closest to the sea. The rousing crescendo features holes played along coves, natural harbours and water channels.
