PLAMILLA - ONE & ONLY

4.5/5

Situated in a box-shaped canyon backdropped by stark brown peaks in the Sierra de la Laguna range, Palmilla is the landmark facility that set the stage for top-shelf golf in Los Cabos when it opened in 1992.

The original 18 (Arroyo and Mountain nines), the first Jack Nicklaus Signature Design in Latin America, is a target-style test that skirts boulder-strewn arroyos, long waste bunkers and several ponds. Several holes call for heroic, do-or-die forced carries over raw desert from the back tees, but broad terraced fairways, generous bail-out areas and accessible greens accommodate players of lesser attainment.

Created with environmental sensitivity, Palmilla appears airlifted into the desert uplands, with a staggering variety of cacti and native trees framing the tees, greens and fairways.

The club’s Ocean nine, added by Nicklaus in 1997, boasts a 600-foot elevation change from the first tee to the sixth green that transports players from the mountains to the sea. The putting surfaces on the Ocean nine are more undulating than the greens on the original 18.

Palmilla has three signature holes, one for each nine-hole course. Ocean No. 3 is the most photographed hole at Palmilla.

This demanding par 4 drops 150 feet to a fairway flanked by an arroyo to the right. The beachfront green is situated just steps away from crashing waves in the Sea of Cortes. No. 5 on

Mountain is a stirring par 4 that plays across a canyon and leads to a sunken green fronted by a dry river bed. No. 7 on Arroyo, stretching to 566 yards, is a picturesque but well-defended par 5 faced directly into the prevailing trade winds.

This 27-hole club, featuring three different 18-hole combinations of golf, is located five minutes from One&Only Palmilla, a world-class resort.
