Palmilla Golf Club

4-PLUS: Must play course - excellent standard; worthy of 4½ stars.

Est. 1993

Palmilla Golf Club is home to a championship golf course that ranks with some of the best in Mexico. Opened in 1992, Palmilla was Jack Nicklaus’ first signature course built in Latin America comprising a 27-hole layout consisting of three nines, Arroyo, Mountain and Ocean.

This desert-style layout provides a wonderful test for your all-round game, with many attractive, skilfully crafted and challenging holes to enjoy. With towering cacti, deep arroyos and stunning views of the Sea of Cortez, the course features four lakes and deep shifts in elevation. A must play if you are in the area. At this Stay&Play venue, the on-site accommodations are located close to the golf facilities.

Latest Golf Course Reviews

Traigh Golf Course (pronounced "try", and meaning "beach" in Gaelic): You'll find this nine-hole seaside gem on the scenic coast road (as opposed to the more inland and quicker A830) between Arisaig and Morar. Although not on the well-beaten path of Scotland's "trophy" courses, if you are passing through this area, it's a must play.
