As the sun rises over the azure waters of the Sea of Cortez, a serene oasis awaits golf enthusiasts seeking the perfect blend of luxury, adventure and impeccable golfing experiences. Nestled along the shores of Los Cabos, Villa La Valencia stands tall as an under-the-radar haven for an unforgettable golf trip.
When vacation planning starts and Cabo is at the top of the list, it might be a smart call to avoid the word “golf” in conversations with your significant other (especially if they are not a duffer). No, Villa La Valencia does not have its own golf course. But if you’re on a family trip, the all-inclusive resort provides essentially endless activities for everyone to enjoy while you escape to test your skills on the world class courses.
Depending on the duration of your stay, positioning your intentions to play 18-72 holes may cause a bit of friction. Remember, you’re not technically on a golf trip but the opportunities to play are ever present. Choosing Villa La Valencia as your will no doubt be a key player in your negotiation. Remind them about all the happenings at the resort that can occupy their time while you’re out hunting birdies. For relaxation, guests have access to the Azul Wellness Spa Center at the resort. And for the children, there is a dedicated Kids’ Club to occupy their time.
As for the golf, here are three of Cabos best you can experience on your trip:
Quivira Golf Club:
Boasting panoramic views of the Pacific Ocean, Quivira Golf Club is a masterpiece that stretches across cliffs, dunes, and hills, offering a truly unique golfing experience. Players are challenged with dramatic elevation changes and strategic bunkering, making every swing a thrilling adventure.
Cabo del Sol Ocean Course:
Renowned as one of the best courses in Mexico, the Cabo del Sol Ocean Course provides a majestic blend of desert and oceanfront holes. Golfers find themselves teeing off beside crashing waves and navigating through cacti-laden terrain, guaranteeing a memorable round of golf.
Puerto Los Cabos Golf Club:
A collaboration between two golf legends, Jack Nicklaus and Greg Norman, Puerto Los Cabos Golf Club is a masterpiece with 18 holes offering diverse challenges. This course is split into two distinct nines—the front designed by Nicklaus showcasing desert-style golf, and the back nine by Norman offering stunning ocean vistas.
For food enthusiasts, the resort’s culinary delights are a sensory feast, featuring mouthwatering dishes crafted from fresh, locally sourced ingredients. Whether you savor gourmet Mexican cuisine, delectable international fare, or exotic cocktails by the pool, each meal at Villa La Valencia is a gastronomic experience to remember.
Beyond the golfing and resort luxuries, Las Cabos offers a host of recreational activities to complement your trip. Embark on a thrilling deep-sea fishing excursion, explore the hidden wonders of the Sea of Cortez through snorkeling or scuba diving, or venture into the heart of the desert on an exhilarating off-road adventure.
While Los Cabos has always been a beloved destination for its natural beauty and vibrant nightlife, Villa La Valencia raises the bar for aficionados seeking unparalleled excellence. And staying here may give you enough flexibility to enjoy golf in Cabo on a family trip.
