Quivira Golf Club, the spectacular Jack Nicklaus Signature course etched across a breathtaking Land’s End site at the tip of the Baja Peninsula, has received a 2021 Golf Digest Editors’ Choice Award in the ‘Best Golf Resorts in Mexico & Central America’ category. This is the sixth consecutive year the club has been singled out for recognition by the sport’s most widely read and respected publication.
“This is Year 6 of our annual Editors’ Choice Awards package, offering once again an assortment of products that can help golfers play better, smarter and healthier in 2021,” said Ryan Herrington, the magazine’s deputy digital editor. “Additionally, we also recognize top destinations and travel-related services in hopes that golf trips will be something we can all enjoy again in the not-too-distant future.”
Golf Digest’s description of Quivira Golf Club in its online edition sums up the layout’s enduring appeal. “At the tip of Baja (California) Sur is the newest of more than a dozen Jack Nicklaus layouts in Mexico, and perhaps his most compelling, with holes along and atop granite cliffs and sand dunes overlooking the Pacific,” the report stated. “Several lodging facilities nearby offer access,” including Pueblo Bonito Pacifica Golf & Spa Resort, a deluxe all-inclusive, adults-only beachfront property located five minutes from the club.
Opened to international acclaim in 2014, Quivira has been recognized as one of the most challenging and memorable resort venues in the hemisphere. Created as an exclusive amenity for guests of Pueblo Bonito Resorts and the centerpiece of the Quivira Los Cabos residential development, this bold risk-reward layout, marked by sheer granite cliffs, massive windswept dunes and rolling desert foothills, features panoramic views and dizzying drops from tee to fairway. In a sun-splashed destination renowned for its ocean-desert-mountain ecosystem, Quivira offers more oceanfront exposure than any other course in Los Cabos.
An unforgettable test from any set of tees, this 7,085-yard, par-72 tour de force may be the most daring and eclectic course Jack Nicklaus has ever built. Since its debut, Quivira has become a “must-play” venue for golf aficionados from around the world.
