Many golfers look forward to the moment when they can play any day. Luckily, a retirement filled with the friendly game can be achieved. Plenty of private and public courses, country clubs, and resorts offer golf, along with other amenities like top-notch restaurants, fitness centers, pools, tennis, pickleball, and social events.
You can spend your golden years in a country club community or a neighborhood that’s within a short distance of a golf course.
Here are 2 places that tick all of those boxes in Baja. Mexico…
Costa Palmas, East Cape, Mexico
The world-class championship course, designed by Robert Trent Jones II, features desert and ocean views, dunescapes, and manicured fairways. The walkable links-style course also offers a shorter, six-hole loop for practice, fun, or a casual game. Stop for a bite to eat along the way at Lucha Libre, or drop in to Bouchie’s at the putting green for a snack before you tee off.
The 1,000-acre beachfront resort community of Costa Palmas is located 45 minutes from Los Cabos International Airport, along a two-mile stretch of swimmable beach on the Baja Peninsula’s East Cape. The Four Seasons Resort Los Cabos at Costa Palmas is an elegant beachfront resort, and Four Seasons residences and villas are available in a variety of locations. Homeowners can join the Beach & Yacht Club and take advantage of the community’s adventure concierge, Aventura.
The stunning TPC Danzante Bay course was designed by the legendary architect Rees Jones with the goal of providing a challenging and enjoyable golf experience surrounded by the area’s natural beauty. To preserve those spectacular vistas, residential development around the course was limited.
The 741-acre resort community, located on the eastern coast of the Baja Peninsula about 200 miles north of Cabo, features dramatic views of the Sierra de la Giganta range and Sea of Cortez. In addition to the golf course, the community is home to four restaurants, five pools, and the award-winning Villa del Palmar Beach Resort & Spa.
