Cabo del Sol - Desert Course

  2 Reviews

Played golf in Cabo many times. Really solid course with several tee boxes to play based on handicap. Back is over 7,000 yards, so everything you want. Course was in great condition and staff were very helpful. We will be back!

He would play this course again.

It was just one of those days in Cabo that was near perfect. The water ball on 18 and the subsequent double put a wrinkle in the day, but it was all ironed out by a steamy shower, a clubhouse cocktail and a blissful view of the Sea of Cortez.I was first off on the Weiskopf Desert track at 7:45 am. After a few warm up shots on the expansive range to get to know my worn but not terribly outdated rental set, I set off on the front to open with a surprising string of pars. I account for this success not with my strained 7 handicap abilities (burdened by unfamiliar equipment and a fuzzy brain from a night of consumption) but by the beautiful conditions of the track. Tight Bermuda fairways and speedy greens that rolled true seem to make this game easier.I rolled off the front nine in hour and twenty five minutes. I didn't hurry and I made sure to enjoy the expansive views from every tee and every green. I played the back in about the same time and when I finished I was greeted by a player attendant with a cool towel that removed the grit and last bit of hangover from my face. I bought two sleeves of balls at the pro shop before the round and did not expect them to accept a return. They did and then offered me use of the clubhouse facilities with a nice shower and all the amenities of a private facility. Feeling completely refreshed I headed to the veranda bar for a drink and took in the great viewThe Weiskopf course reminds me of his design at Vista Vallarta. The routing follows the natural terrain with being over built. The greens are expansive and undulating, severely in some spots but still fair. The fairways are wide in the spots where conservative play seems prudent and tight where an aggressive line is rewarded.The cost is another matter. Great days and courses days don't come without a price. A prime spot in season will set you back $225. If you play it after 1:00 you can go for as low as $99. That, amigos, is a deal even with a double on 18. Buen Viaje!
