Located just minutes from downtown Cabo San Lucas and the only course in Los Cabos with views of the iconic sea arch and rock formations at Land’s End, Cabo San Lucas Country Club’s original nine was laid out by Roy Dye, brother of Pete Dye. The course was completed by Roy’s son Matt Dye.
One of the longest and most challenging courses in Los Cabos at 7,238 yards from the tips, this parkland-style layout, formerly known as the Raven Golf Club, compares favorably to courses in Palm Springs, Calif. Wide, gently rolling fairways girdled by waste bunkers, cardon cactus, palo blanco trees and colorful bougainvillea characterize the layout. Nine lakes bring water into play at more than half the holes, notably at the par-4 ninth and 18th holes, where a large rock-rimmed lagoon protects each green.
Among the feature holes at Cabo San Lucas Country Club is the double-dogleg, 610-yard par-5 seventh, which swings around a lake and ranks among the longest holes in Mexico.
In 2013, architect David Fleming built two new par 4’s to enhance the club’s golf experience. The 401-yard 10th hole plays downhill towards a large bunker complex before rising to a slim, deep green. The 435-yard 11th hole, faced into the prevailing wind, is a subtle right-to-left dogleg with a large waste bunker pinching the left side of the fairway.0
