Quivira Golf Club, a spectacular new $40-million Jack Nicklaus design on Mexico’s Baja Peninsula, features massive sand dunes, clifftop ocean views and a 1.2-kilometre thrill ride up the side of a mountain.

Tumbling across a wildly dramatic setting at the tip of Mexico’s Baja Peninsula, Quivira Golf Club is poised to capture the attention of the golf world with its launch October 1.

The Jack Nicklaus design—the Golden Bear’s sixth in Los Cabos—is defined by windswept dunes, sheer mountain cliffs and desert foothills. It’s the centrepiece of Quivira, the newest luxury development in this popular tourist destination at the Baja Peninsula’s southern tip. The property includes two resorts, Pueblo Bonito Pacifica Resort & Spa and Pueblo Bonito Sunset Beach Resort and Spa, and three high-end real estate communities.

“Our team has worked with the canvas Mother Nature provided to create what we hope is one of the most spectacular courses in the world,” Nicklaus says. “This property afforded us a rare opportunity because of its topographic diversity and natural environment.”

All 18 holes at 7,224-yard Quivira offer vistas of the Pacific Ocean and, during the winter months, views of breaching whales.

Nicklaus’s $40-million layout, more than eight years in the making, starts near the sea before climbing more than 350 feet. The spectacular 1.2-kilometre drive between the fourth and fifth holes crosses arroyo-spanning bridges and traces a switchback route up the side of a mountain.

Equally dramatic is the par-three sixth, featuring a concave cliff-top green carved from the base of a massive dune. Nicklaus’s routing weaves through still more dunes before returning to the cliffs for a grand finale: The par-four 18th plays to an infinity-edge green overlooking the crashing Pacific.

Quivira Golf Club will be accessible to guests of the four Pueblo Bonito Oceanfront Resorts and Spas in Los Cabos, and to property owners at Quivira’s three real estate communities: Copala, Montecristo Estates Luxury Villas, and Novaispania Residences.
