Golfers don’t just visit the Baja, they fall in love with it!

Mexico’s Baja California Peninsula is a vacation paradise offering some of the world’s best golfing. From the California border to the tip of Land's End at Los Cabos, visitors will find tropical and links-style golf courses, as well as desert, target and oceanfront layouts to choose from. Since the 1950s, tourism in the Baja has grown exponentially.

Today, several exclusive resorts populate the southerly tip of the Baja Peninsula and championship golf courses have worked their way into the beautiful desert landscape. Fortunately, the Mexican

government has made sure that this commercial growth has been handled tastefully and the area is still popular for what was the original lure: sparkling blue waters and long sandy beaches. Add world-class championship golf to this, and you have a guaranteed recipe for an unforgettable golf vacation!

Golf courses in the Baja are characterized by larger-than-life landscapes that combine the stunning oceanfront with unique desert terrain. Their inspiring views make picture-perfect golf memories, but beware: it’s easy to get swept away by the captivating scenery and lose focus on your game! The “pitfalls” of gorgeous landscapes aside, Baja’s courses offer unique challenges for players of all skill levels.

Be prepared to use every club in your bag as you negotiate expansive fairways, dramatic elevation changes, inventive traps, tricky doglegs and last but not least, ocean winds. Not surprisingly, some of golf’s top architects have designed a number of these masterpiece layouts, including Jack Nicklaus, Robert Trent Jones, Jr. and Pete Dye.

After the perfect day of golf, retire to one of Los Cabos’ several top quality resorts or hotels. If you desire first class service and amenities, and gorgeous rooms or suites with incredible views, then the Baja should be on your golf holiday shortlist! A frequently cited example is the luxurious One&Only Palmilla, ranked #1 by Conde Nast Traveler on their 2004 Top 100 Golf Resorts. “The Corridor” between Cabo San Lucas and San Jose del Cabo offers numerous world-class accommodations, many of which are right on the beach and next door to the area’s best courses.

If you need further convincing about visiting the Baja for golf, consider the generous exchange rate of 11 Pesos to the American Dollar. The high quality of the golf courses and accommodations coupled with this affordability make Mexico’s beautiful Baja Peninsula a premier global golf destination. Wherever you choose to stay and tee off in the Baja, you are guaranteed a memorable vacation and a challenging round. Golfers don’t just visit the Baja, they fall in love with it—and so will you!
