Los Cabos is undoubtedly a unique destination. Among its many attributes, you can find spectacular golf courses designed by renowned architects, surrounded by the natural beauty of the desert and sea that characterize the area.

Here are just a few of the most popular courses:

Cabo del Sol (Ocean course): Designed by Jack Nicklaus, this course is considered one of the best in the world. It offers stunning views of the Sea of Cortez and the Baja Peninsula.

Cabo del Sol (Desert course): Designed by Tom Weiskopf, this course offers astonishing views between the mountains and the desert.

Diamante (Dunes course): Designed by Davis Love III, this course offers a challenging and spectacular layout that incorporates the natural terrain of the desert and the nearby dunes by the sea.

On the Course

While a course with breathtaking views is certainly inspiring, here are some suggestions to improve your golf game:

Practice your swing. A good swing is one of the basic aspects of golf. Learning the correct technique can ensure that your shots are accurate and strong, leading to better shots every time. Make sure to practice your stance and technique on and off the course. You can practice in a golf simulator, on a course, utilize online resources, or take lessons directly from a professional.

Distance over direction. In a short game, mastering the distance of your shots gives you more options for approach and putt. Dedicate time to practice putting, chipping, and pitching, as these are crucial aspects of the game.

Choose your equipment wisely. Make sure you’re using golf clubs suitable for your skill level and type of play. The position of the flag marks the choice. If it’s short, the best decision would be to play longer than the hole and leave it halfway to the green. The same goes in reverse, if the flag is long, the recommendation is to play short of the flag. Remember, you can always seek help from a professional to choose the clubs that best suit you.

Improve your strategy. Learn to read the course and plan your shots according to the conditions and obstacles present. It’s not always about hitting the ball as far as possible but about playing smartly. We suggest always aiming to land the ball close. A shift in your mental perspective will make a big difference in your approach shots (even putts). Your shot will likely improve if you focus solely on getting the ball close.

Stay physically fit. Golf requires strength, flexibility, and endurance. Stay physically fit with specific exercises for golfers, improving flexibility and mobility in relevant muscles and joints, such as stretching, strength exercises, and cardio. The most important areas to strengthen include the core, shoulders, forearms, and legs; these muscles are essential for a good swing and posture on the course. This will allow greater freedom of movement and a better ability to adapt to the situation on the course. We also recommend improving your endurance with cardio to increase your performance in long games.

Lastly, enjoy yourself. Don’t obsess over results, and make the most of your time outdoors and the company!
