Cabo Real

 

Cabo Real Golf CourseThe first 18 holes of the championship Cabo Real Golf Course are laid out over more than 7,000 yards. Designed by Robert Trent Jones Jr., with its numerous sand traps and arroyos, the golf course provides a real challenge for low handicap golfers but is still great fun for beginners. Cabo Real Golf Course is a spectacular example of the art of designing and building a truly challenging golf course.

When he first saw Cabo Real Golf Course, Robert Trent Jones, Jr. set his goal to create "a high quality golf course that appears to have been designed by its setting, where every hole features vistas of the sea." The 7000 yard golf course works its way up into the mountains from the first tee to the sixth green. From the sixth hole, it winds its way down the mountain, sneaks past the lake on the ninth fairway to the ninth green. Here you can stop for a well deserved snack at the clubhouse.

After a refreshing break, head on down to the Sea of Cortez for a more relaxing back nine. That's the first 18. Construction on the second 18 within the Cabo Real development, El Dorado, has just been completed.
