Written by Cabo Golf Packages   

Palmilla Cabo Golf Resort


Palmilla Golf Club in Los Cabos, Mexico, is famous for incredible golf and fantastic views. Palmilla Golf Club was Jack Nicklaus' first Latin America design - as the first Jack Nicklaus Signature Design in Latin America, the masterfully conceived golf course is as challenging as it is stunning. A world-class golf course and is the best of Cabo golf in Cabo San Lucas.

The Palmilla Cabo golf resort course features excellent views of the Sea of Cortez from every angle, and each one of the 9-hole Palmilla golf courses, featurse five sets of tees to challenge golfers of all skill. Palmilla Golf Club has a Mexico decor clubhouse, on-site golf shop and an expert staff to help provide for your every golf need in Los Cabos.


Palmilla Cabo golf resortCourse Specifics:

The Palmilla course is divided into the 3,337-yard Arroyo Nine, the 3,602-yard Mountain Nine, and the 3,548-yard Ocean Nine. The staggered sets of tee boxes (five) ensure an exciting game for golfers of every level. The Ocean Nine design features a 600' elevation change from hole 1 to hole 6, and takes full advantage of the gorgeous desert and mountain terrain, with exciting directional changes.
The seventh, a long par five looks down from an elevated tee to narrow fairway that has a 150 foot deep canyon the entire length of the hole. A carry of 235 yards over an arroyo to an elevated green is necessary to have a chance at a par three on the eighth hole. The Mountain nine is the most difficult of the three. You can make an eagle on the par five 4th but it requires a long drive over water and a second shot over more water to a narrow green. The 5th hole is one of the most challenging par fours in Cabo. A double carry over an other deep arroyo may give you a chance at par.

The Ocean nine has a mixture of long difficult par fours and tricky demanding holes. The ninth lets you choose how much you want to cut of the tee shot as you cross the arroyo twice before hitting your third shot to a narrow but long elevated green.

The management of Palmilla has recently been taken over by Troon Golf, They have brought their usual high standard of quality and service to Palmilla and it shows in the condition of the entire course. Carts only, included in green fee, complementary range balls and water.

Palmilla is a fantastic resort course with trade winds that enhance pinpoint accuracy and challenges even the most experienced players. A Mexican decor style clubhouse, on location pro-shop, and helpful staff help provide for your every need. With its expert management, exceptional design, and perfect location, Palmilla Golf Club is one of top four courses in all of Mexico, and definitely one of the finest in the world!
