Opened in 2001, the Desert Course was Tom Weiskopf’s first architectural design in Latin America. Weiskopf built the 7,049-yard course above the Ocean Course, with each hole offering a panoramic view of the Sea of Cortes. The Desert Course travels through cactus-covered mountain foothills and skirts canyon-like barrancas. 

The Ocean Course was designed by Jack Nicklaus and stretches across the seashore and combines the region’s ocean, mountain, and desert environment. The 5th and signature 17th holes have been ranked among “The 500 Best Holes in the World” according to Golf Magazine.

There are three resorts at Cabo del Sol including Fiesta Americana Grand, Sheraton Hacienda del Mar, and Premier Resorts de Mexico.
