Cabo del Sol is an outstanding golf, hotel, and real estate development on the Baja Peninsula- it all started with the Ocean Course designed by Jack Nicklaus which opened in 1994
The desert course designed by Tom Weiskopf followed in 2001.
It is designed with ocean views on every hole, although the course itself never touches the coastline as the Ocean course does.
The Desert course is a quality layout and just a little more forgiving than the Ocean course, with wider fairways and less penal bunkering.
But it is an excellent test of golf.
The combination of ocean views, desert terrain and a mountain backdrop, and very little development around the course gives it a lovely rustic feel- and there are plenty of challenges on the course..
Notable holes include:
- the short strategic par 4 4th hole
- the picturesque par 3 5th
- the dramatic par 3 16th hole
- the challenging par 4 18th hole
The desert course is a worthy sister to the Ocean Course, and an excellent warm up to the main event
The Sheraton Grand is the place to stay and with internal shuttles is an easy trip to both the Ocean and Desert Courses. It makes for a pretty decent golf break!
