An Overview of the Golf Facilities

Golf Course

In a spectacular setting at the tip of the Baja Peninsula marked by sheer granite cliffs, huge windswept dunes and rolling desert foothills 10 minutes from downtown Cabo San Lucas, golf legend Jack Nicklaus has designed a course that is poised to redefine the Cabo golf experience.

Created as an exclusive amenity for guests of Quivira, this world-class layout offers dazzling views and breathtaking drops from tee to fairway. In a destination revered for its unique ocean-desert-mountain setting, Quivira offers more oceanfront exposure than any other course in Los Cabos, with views from every hole of the waters where the Sea of Cortez and the Pacific Ocean meet.

Presenting a championship-caliber test from the back tees at 7,224 yards, Quivira has multiple sets of forward tees to enhance playability. The routing of this Jack Nicklaus Signature golf course starts on the beach, within earshot of the soothing waves before climbing to higher ground, where the views are a match for the challenge. The topographical variety of the holes – from cactus and arroyos to dunes and cliffs – is unmatched.

During the round, players can refresh themselves at four comfort stations interspersed throughout the all-inclusive facility. A halfway house situated near the eighth green, called the “Oasis,” showcases the culinary talents of the resort’s chefs, with regional cuisine and refreshments available, as well as a culinary experience that is unique and unexpected for a golf course.

Completing the experience at Quivira is a thatched-roof clubhouse adjacent to the 18th green that offers a large rectangular bar, a casual steakhouse and ample outdoor seating overlooking the sea, the 18th green, and the true Land’s End of the Baja Peninsula. Shuttle service to and from the golf club is included within the Quivira development.

Practice Facility

Situated beside the clubhouse at Quivira is one of the rarest sights in all of golf: a spacious, double-sided practice facility that parallels the ocean, with the sandy beach and rolling surf a mere wedge shot away from the verdant turfgrass. This extraordinary oceanfront facility may be unique in the world of golf.

The driving range portion of Quivira’s practice facility, which features target greens and bunkers, is really two ranges in one. A dune ridge divides the expansive hitting area into a pair of simulated fairways. One is set directly on the beach. For players who resist the distraction of the crashing waves and breaching whales, it’s a perfect place to warm up. On the other side of the ridge, players can enjoy a dune desert practice environment in a pure desert setting. For a personalized experience, the club’s professional staff can organize private lessons and clinics.

Directly outside the clubhouse is an elongated 18-hole putting course that closely simulates the speed and texture of the greens on the golf course. Adjacent to the practice putting green is a short game practice area where golfers can work on the all-important scoring shots, including chipping, pitching and sand play.

From the moment of arrival until the last putt is holed and scores are tallied in the open-air clubhouse, Quivira sets a new standard for the ultimate golf experience in Mexico.
