One of the most scenic yet hardest golf courses in Cabo is found at the prestigious Cabo San Lucas Country Club, only a short distance from downtown Cabo San Lucas, Mexico.
At the apex of the Baja Peninsula, the Sea of Cortez joins gracefully with the Pacific Ocean. On land, a pristine desert landscape descends to meet the sea foam colored surf below. This is an 18-hole, par 72, 7,220-yard course that Roy and Matt Dye built. Rough clusters of Palo Blanco trees and vibrant bougainvillea contrast well with the lush, meticulously maintained Bermuda grass fairways and greens, which are all framed by stunning views of the Sea of Cortez and Land’s End.
The delicate ecosystem of this 200-acre course has been carved out of the mountain and desert landscape while continuing to be a natural habitat for a wide variety of flora and wildlife. Both golfers and non-golfers will experience the most breathtaking panoramic views of Land’s End at Hole 18!
No other golf course in Cabo San Lucas can match the spectacular views of Land’s End provided by this world class golf facility. What’s more, nearly every hole offers stunning vistas of the Sea of Cortez. You get to experience championship golf at its best while also having access to some of the most beautiful views a golf course can provide.
A Visually Stunning Yet Challenging Course
The gently sloping fairways, more than 80 bunkers, and hole number 7, one of the longest holes in all of Mexico at 610 yards, showcase the beauty and challenge of the 18-hole championship golf course. Even the most discerning golfer is sure to be captivated by its distinctive combination of shot-making challenges set against the breathtaking backdrop of desert and ocean vistas.
The country club provides some of the best green fees in all of Cabo, in addition to having one of the greatest spots with views of Land’s End. Greens fees range from $90 to $245, with twilight rates as low as $79.
Cabo San Lucas Country Club Reopens After Significant Renovations
The parkland-style course, which used to be among the longest and most difficult in Los Cabos, has undergone extensive renovations since Tropical Storm Lidia nearly devastated it in September 2017.
The Country Club now measures 6,852 yards (par 71) from the back tees, which puts it on par with golf courses in Palm Springs, California. The layout has Cardon cacti, bright bougainvillea, palo Blanco trees, and gently sloping fairways surrounded by waste bunkers. Tall rocky mountains frame the path to the north. Seven of the courses are affected by lakes, including the difficult par-4 ninth and 18th holes where each green is protected by a sizable rock-rimmed lagoon.
To increase playability and improve sightlines, some holes have been changed. To increase the layout’s sea vistas, the club’s back nine was reduced and its corridors extended. The redesigned and altered holes include more rolling greens, better risk-reward scenarios from the back tees, and improved flexibility from the forward tees. Bunkers were improved and remodeled all throughout the course. A more open, links-style setting has resulted from tree and plant pruning. The club also has the only illuminated driving range in Los Cabos, which is easily accessible to guests of nearby hotels and cruise ship passengers.
Although the players have praised the improvements and welcomed the layout’s enhanced playability, the club still poses a challenging game. Compared to the narrow and flat original putting surfaces, the new greens are bigger and more generously shaped. In addition, Cabo San Lucas Country Club still has a few difficult holes, as stated below.

The double-dogleg par 5 seventh hole, which swings around a lake and spans to 610 yards from the back tees, is ranked among the longest and more intimidating holes in Mexico.

The par 3 eighth hole has been exchanged for the par 3 17th.
Hole# 9 Par 4 Yards 361 Handicap Rating: 5
The par 4 ninth hole has been exchanged for the par 4 18th.
Hole# 10 Par 4 Yards 298 Handicap Rating: 6
The par 4 10th hole uses the same set of tee boxes as the original hole, but because of a friendlier green that is situated closer to the tees, regular golfers may complete it in regulation.
Hole# 11 Par 3 Yards 104 Handicap Rating: 14
The par 3 11th is a newly-created hole that leads to the previous 12th green, which was transformed into a large, wavy putting surface.
Hole# 12 Par 5 Yards 430 Handicap Rating: 8
The 12th hole was changed from a tough par 4 to a sporting par 5.
Hole# 13 Par 4 Yards 365 Handicap Rating: 12
The par 4 13th is situated within the original hole’s corridor but plays to a remodeled green.

A lake on the right comes into play on the 208-yard par 3 14th.
Hole# 15 Par 4 Yards 336 Handicap Rating: 16
Hole# 16 Par 5 Yards 473 Handicap Rating: 2
The par 5 16th hole has a reversed hole direction. Now the fairway extends from north to south, pointing toward the Sea of Cortez.
Hole# 17 Par 3 Yards 205 Handicap Rating: 18
The par 3 17th plays uphill against the prevailing wind to a perched, inclined green and is 226 yards from the tips (205 yards from the white tees).
Hole# 18 Par 4 Yards 417 Handicap Rating: 4
The lengthy par 4 18th hole necessitates a blind tee shot over a slight rise and requires a very accurate approach shot to a green that is pressed between bunkers on the right and a lagoon on the left.
