Cabo de Sol is without doubt a golfers dream destination 2 great courses The Ocean Course by Jack Nicklaus and this masterful Tom Weiskopf design features mesmerizing ocean views from all 18 holes, each artfully sculpted through incredible natural surroundings. A unique combination of desert and ocean, canyon-like arroyos and a variety of foliage creates a breathtaking backdrop as well as a significant challenge. The course varies in length from 4,810 to 7,100 with undulating greens, challenging elevation changes and dramatic bunkering. The Desert Course is rated #6 in all of México by Golf Digest placing it behind only The Ocean Course among Los Cabos’ resort golf offerings. Playing off a 17 HCP and off the blue tees I gave Hernan 5 storkes in a match & medal challenge (lunch was the bet!!) Hernan was off to a blazing start shooting a 39 with 2 birdies on the front nine whilst I kept up with a 40!! I had a long way to go 2 down in match play and 1 stroke behind !! Alas my dear amigo GM of Westin Playa Conchal in Costa Rica driver started to play up and from 3 UP the wheels fell off this Argentines bike!! I finished with a 82 and Won the match, medal and lunch ( was meant to win the lunch !!) A further 9 holes were player to give him another chance but the result was more of the same – 2 up and by 3 strokes – so all in all a hiding !! After touring the beautiful new suites of Ventanas al Paraiso in Los Cabos we enjoyed a savory lunch in the Sea Grill – gracias Hernan – you still owe me a lunch. Until the next challenge.
