The country has a much diversified geographic topography, blessed with beautiful golf courses and Mexico Golf Resorts that rival any in the world.

There is every type of topography including; Ocean Front Courses, as well as golf courses in warm desert areas, and high-mountain regions.

So, if you are thinking about a Mexico Golf Vacation, now is the time!

Mexico Has Many Outstanding Courses

Golf courses in Mexico are known worldwide for their extraordinary beauty and quality.

This was clearly demonstrated by the arrival in Mexico of the PGA Mayakoba Golf Classic tournament in February of 2007, organized and planned by the outstanding and beautiful golf course El Camaleon, located in the Riviera Maya.

This was considered an historic event because the Professional Golf Association was conducting this official tournament outside the United States and Canada for the very first time. The third edition of this classic was held in 2009 with resounding success. Mexico Golf Vacations are well known among tour players as well.

The Government of Mexico Tourism Department has a goal to make Golfing Mexico the number one destination in the world.

A golf vacation in Mexico is much more than just playing golf. It is an awakening to the visitor of an outstandingly beautiful country, and a culturally rewarding experience, with an enriching educational adventure that the visitor just does not forget. Think “Vacation in Mexico”!

Cabo del Sol Golf Course, Cabo San Lucas, Mexico

Cabo de Sol is known as the #1 Resort Golf Course in Mexico. It is a world-renowned Jack Nicklaus Signature design Golf Course following along white-sand shores and a mile-long coastline of magnificent rock outcroppings.

According to Nicklaus himself this championship layout is famous for having the “three finest finishing holes in all of golf.”

The signature 5th and 17th Holes are now ranked among “The 500 Best Holes in the World” according to Golf Magazine (January 2000).

There's no doubt that Holes number 16, 17 and 18 are incredible. But the three front-nine Holes that run along the ocean, Hole numbers 5, 6 and 7 - are outstanding as well.
