LOS CABOS, Mexico – Golfers headed to Los Cabos this summer can expect well-conditioned courses, plenty of availability, lots of sunshine—and deeply discounted green fees. Summer is family vacation time, but it’s also the season that invites players to take a swing at bargain rates on a bevy of world-class venues.
For example, all three Questro Golf courses in Los Cabos offer significant seasonal discounts through Oct. 31. Last year’s rates were retained for 2019.
Questro Golf’s Club Campestre, located five minutes from downtown San Jose del Cabo and a local favorite, is a Nicklaus Design course chiseled into sloping terrain that offers undulating greens and excellent value. In addition to an 18-hole green fee of $140 and a twilight rate of $100 after 12:30 p.m., Campestre’s “Fore for 4” promo rate for foursomes, priced at $420, is arguably the best bang for the buck in Los Cabos this summer.
At Cabo Real, another Questro Golf facility in the center of the Tourist Corridor, an 18-hole green fee of $180 and a twilight rate of $125 after 12:30 p.m. are available. The club’s Robert Trent Jones II-designed course, recently updated, is a challenging, well-balanced layout that climbs from the beachfront into mountain foothills high above the Sea of Cortes. The “Fore for 4” promo rate for foursomes at Cabo Real is $480.
Puerto Los Cabos, situated on the outskirts of San Jose del Cabo, is now a 27-hole complex thanks to the new Jack Nicklaus-designed nine unveiled last year. The new holes are a perfect complement to Jack’s previous nine built in 2008. (The club’s third nine was designed by Greg Norman). The 18-hole summer green fee at Puerto Los Cabos is $210. The twilight rate (after 12:30 p.m.) is $150. The “Fore for 4” promo rate for foursomes is $580. Complimentary food and beverages are served at the club’s on-course palapas.
In addition, Questro Golf’s 2-, 3- and 5-round summer passes, priced at $260, $345 and $525 respectively, permit play on all three courses. Some restrictions apply. https://questrogolf.com/
Palmilla Golf Club, a landmark facility that boasts the first Jack Nicklaus Signature course built in Latin America (1992), offers a triple-tiered system of discounted rates for outside play through Oct. 31. Beginning July 16, green fees for an 18-hole round are $145 from 7:00 a.m. to 11:20 a.m.; rate drops to $105 starting at 11:40 a.m. There’s also a special twilight rate of $75 starting at 3:00 p.m. Considered the “Grande Dame” of Los Cabos golf, Palmilla’s Mountain, Arroyo and Ocean nines offer beautiful sea views and a diverse array of challenges. For an ultra-luxe vacation, players can book the Unlimited Golf Offer (unlimited play on all 27 holes) at One&Only Palmilla, a world-class resort on the Sea of Cortes five minutes from the golf course. https://www.palmillagc.com/
At LOS CABOS, Mexico, its epic Jack Nicklaus-designed course marked by huge dunes, sheer cliffs and desert foothills, players can take advantage of summer rates through Sept. 30. Green fees are the same this year as they were in 2018. Voted to Golf Digest’s list of the “World’s 100 Greatest Golf Courses,” Quivira is priced at $275 for the mid-morning period from 11 a.m. to 1:24 p.m. The twilight rate, available from 1:36 to 3:00 p.m., is $233. Rates include food and refreshments at the club’s four comfort stations. ‘Stay & Play Packages’ at Pueblo Bonito Resorts’ five properties, including the adults-only, all-inclusive Pueblo Bonito Pacifica Golf & Spa Resort located five minutes from the course, are available. https://www.quiviraloscabos.com/golf
