Paraiso del Mar Resort Golf Course

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

Est. 2009

Paraiso del Mar Golf Course (formerly called El Mogote Golf Club at Paraiso del Mar Resort) is home to a well-rated open links-style layout. The course sits at the end of the El Mogote peninsula just across the bay from the Malecon (waterfront boardwalk) in La Paz. Complementing the golf facilities on this relatively undeveloped peninsula is the Paraiso del Mar Resort, which comprises a range of vacation rental villas and condos.

The golf course combines two different golfing worlds. A predominantly dune-covered landscape, reminiscent of traditional British seaside courses, is complemented by occasional lush tropical scenery. Exuding a distinctly links-style character, the course employs the use of deep pot bunkers as well as bunkering built into the native vegetation that border the fairways. As a tribute to the Old Course St Andrews, the fourth and seventh holes play to the same shared double green.
