FISHING AND GOLF
FISHING Los Cabos offers some of the most diverse fishing opportunities to be had anywhere in the world. If you were to choose one place with the highest probability of catching the most prized exotic game fish, it would have to be Los Cabos. Year after year, more striped and blue marlin, huge yellow fin tuna, dorado and wahoo are caught (and many released) within 25 miles of the capes of southern Baja California than anywhere else on earth.
Cabo San Lucas is where the warm Sea of Cortez meets the cooler waters of the Pacific Ocean, where a scum line forms and food from both currents is combined and concentrated. Deep canyons ranging from 500 to more than 5,000 feet deep are just a few miles from the Baja coast. This deep chasm forms a perfect vertically integrated habitat for nutrients, plankton, huge amounts of bait fish and, of course, an extremely large and hungry population of marlin and exotic game fish. Water temperature is another factor in producing this abundance of fish. Los Cabos is the bluewater angler's dream and is considered the billfish capital of the world.

Today the word golf is synonymous with Los Cabos. A recent study listing the top 50 world wide golf destinations ranked Los Cabos number 14, a higher position than any single island destination in Hawaii, and above Orlando and Las Vegas. There is no doubt that Los Cabos has been the first to focus on the development of world-class golf in Mexico. The climate and setting are perfect. Golfers are offered many beautiful and challenging courses in the area with amazing views of this intriguing combination of desert and ocean. From humble beginnings at the nine hole Campo de Golf in San José del Cabo, golf has grown to become the number two tourist attraction after sportfishing. All the championship courses are located within the Tourist Corridor with three Jack Nicklaus-designed golf courses and designs by Robert Trent Jones II, the Dye Corporation, Tom Weiskopf and Tom Fazio. Los Cabos has been the site of the PGA Grand Slam tournament since 1996, attracting golf greats such as Raymond Floyd, Dave Stockham and Hale Irwin. The seven championship golf courses in Los Cabos will test your skill but all are playable. Low handicap players will find them challenging and will appreciate the genius and skill that went into their designs. Less experienced players will be rewarded with incredible scenery and the thrill of playing one championship course after another in a twenty-mile area. The magnificent terrain is comparable to that found in Arizona and California desert courses but what makes Los Cabos even better is the Sea of Cortéz, a sparkling water wonderland of incredible hues reaching as far as the eye can see. The desert has been used creatively to minimize impact on the habitat along all of the course corridors, taking advantage of the wildlife and preserving the wash, giving golfers an exciting experience.
As any golfer knows, every golf course is different. Los Cabos offers an ample and intriguing variety of courses to challenge players of all levels. It's not just the selection, quality and beauty of the courses in Los Cabos, the reason so many choose to play here is the very reliable weather.

Jack Nicklaus at Cabo del Sol (Ocean Course) The Cabo del Sol resort property is 1,500 acres with two miles of stunning coastline overlooking the Sea of Cortez. Offering a unique contrast between desert, mountain and ocean views, this is where Jack Nicklaus created The Ocean Course at Playa Barco Verado with 1.5 miles of coastline.

Golf Magazine named Cabo del Sol to its 'Top 100 Courses in the World', rating it 68th. Plenty of arroyos, sand traps and other obstacles make play very interesting. Nicklaus has called the ocean finishing holes 'three of the finest holes in all of golf'. Tom Weiskopf designed Cabo del Sol's Mountain Course which spreads across 140 acres of gently rolling desert terrain and incorporates large landing areas and new forced carries to ensure an enjoyable golf experience for players of all levels.

Robert Trent Jones II at Cabo Real A Robert Trent Jones II-designed course, Cabo Real opened in 1993.

This course will test low handicappers, but multiple tees make it enjoyable for average players as well.

Jaime Diaque is the Head PGA Pro. Club rentals and lessons are available.
Eldorado Golf Club, a Jack Nicklaus signature course within the Cabo Real resort, is the newest Nicklaus design in Los Cabos and a winner in all respects.

Eldorado features a unique combination of oceanfront and desert canyon golf. Carved out of some of the most difficult terrain in Los Cabos, playing this spectacular design will kindle a golfer's passion for both the game and Baja California Sur as a world-class golf destination. Jaime Diaque is the Head PGA Pro. Club rentals and lessons are available.
Raven (formerly Cabo San Lucas Country Club) Closer to Cabo San Lucas is the Cabo San Lucas Country Club and the Raven golf course, designed by Roy and Matt Dye. This is the only course with a view to Land's End. Different designers in the Dye family created the front and back nines, so the course plays like two different courses. Characteristic of Dye-designs, it has deep waste bunkers, subtle terracing up hillsides and holes built into the natural desert terrain. The course is designed to offer a variety of play options, from a short course played on front tees to super-long numerous bunkers and hazards. It's laid out for easy traversing. The Golf Academy at Cabo San Lucas Country Club offers programs for players of all skill levels. Club rentals are available. Eric Grinderend is the PGA Pro.
