Golf in Baja California
Concierge.com's insider take:
Ever since Jack Nicklaus designed his first Palmilla course in Los Cabos in 1992, golf has grown to surpass fishing as the number-one sporting challenge in southern Baja. Sprinklers spray reclaimed water on unnatural greens at more than a dozen courses around Los Cabos, many charging Pebble Beach-level green fees. La Paz and Loreto have also become golf destinations, and several courses lure duffers across the border in northern Baja. The 27-hole Palmilla Golf Club (www.oneandonlypalmilla.com) was Jack Nicklaus' first Latin America design and set the standard for Los Cabos courses when it opened in 1993. Cabo del Sol's (www.cabodelsol.com/content/golf.html) two courses designed by Nicklaus and Tom Weiskopf rank at the top of Mexico's golf courses.
