LOS CABOS.

THE GOLFING CAPITAL OF LATIN AMERICA.

Los Cabos, at the southern tip of the Baja California peninsula, has established itself as one of the most popular golf destinations in Latin America. 350 days of sunshine per year, the warmth of the people, the picturesque coastline of the Pacific Ocean and the Sea of Cortes, and the captivating landscape have inspired some of the world’s top golf course designers to come up with very special courses. The golfing jewels include Jack Nicklaus’ "Ocean Course" and the "Desert Course", designed by Tom Weiskopf. Together with the adjacent Sheraton Grand Los Cabos Hacienda del Mar, these two spectacular courses form the venue for the World Final (March 18-23, 2019).

CABO DEL SOL.

The Cabo del Sol golf resort extends over an area of approx. 1,800 hectares at the southernmost point of the Baja California peninsula, along the 20 kilometres of the “Tourist Corridor” that connects the towns of San Jose del Cabo and Cabo San Lucas. The club boasts two first-class 18-hole courses located right on the picturesque coastline of the Gulf of California.  

 

Alongside the Desert Course, the Jack Nicklaus-designed Ocean Course is one of the resort's top attractions. The resort is rounded off with an in-house restaurant that enjoys spectacular, panoramic views, the Courtyard Bar with its refined drinks selection, and two exclusive hotel complexes. One of these is the Sheraton Grand Los Cabos Hacienda del Mar, which will host the World Final participants.

THE GOLF COURSES.

Ocean Course.

 

The 7,091-yard (6,484-metre) par-72 course was designed by no less a legend than Jack Nicklaus and is often referred to as the "Pebble Beach of the Baja". The course stretches out for more than a mile across a stunning desert landscape backdropped by rugged 6,000-foot mountains. Seven holes follow the coastline, offering a spectacular view and an inspiring challenge for any golfer. This is particularly true of the final three holes, which Nicklaus himself describes as the "three finest finishing holes in all of golf".

 

Desert Course.

 

Tom Weiskopf, a master at designing golf courses in desert environment, created the "Desert Course" in 2001. At 7,049 yards (6,445 metres), the par72 course is slightly shorter than the "Ocean Course", but at a far higher altitude. As such, it offers a breath-taking panoramic view of the Sea of Cortes. The "Desert Course" may not require any excessively long shots and has wide landing zones, but it is strategically challenging. This is thanks largely to the greens, which undulate dramatically and are defended by an army of large sculpted bunkers.

MEXICO.

FLORA & FAUNA.

Mexico is a paradise for nature lovers, lying in fourth place on the list of countries with the greatest level of biodiversity. Between 60 and 70 percent of the world's species are to be found there. The sheer size of the country, combined with the various elevations and their associated climate zones, play a key role here and allow such a wide range of vegetation and animal life to prosper in Mexico.

On a journey through the whole country, you can see many different types of scenery: from the deep greens of the tropical rainforest in the south to the towering, snow-capped peaks of the Central Highlands and the expanses of desert and semi-desert in the north.

We recommend that you familiarise yourself with current requirements on the website of your national Foreign Ministry. Please ensure that your passport is valid for at least six months from your date of entry. Always make sure that you have a copy of your passport, or the data from the passport, just in case your passport is lost or mislaid.

Depending on your place of residences, you may be required to provide vaccination certificates when entering Mexico. Please contact the Mexican embassy or the Mexican consulate in your country for more details.
