Best Golf Locations in Los Cabos

Located on the tip of the Baja California peninsula, Los Cabos has been a long-time favorite among vacationers, second-home buyers, and property investors. But it is also the country’s most popular golf destination. It is home to 18 golf courses, offering players blue skies and a refreshing sea breeze year-round.

Some of the most remarkable developments include Cove Club, a 1,800-acre community with a course designed by Jack Nicklaus and awe-inspiring landscapes. Diamante luxury resort, located on a stunning coastline with magnificent dunes, with a course designed by Tiger Woods and Davis Love III. Cabo Real is a 2,800-acre community with a beachfront course designed by Robert Trent Jones, Jr, which hosts prestigious tournaments. And Querencia is a 1,800-acre community with a golf course designed by Tom Fazio, located not far from the airport but with spectacular sea views. These communities offer fantastic opportunities for home buyers to find a property that faces mountains, the ocean, or the beloved golf course, with a variety of activities for golfers in their downtime, nongolfer partners, or family members.

For those that prefer to keep some distance between themselves and the course, we recommend viewing our listings in the traditional San Jose del Cabo or the buzzing Cabo San Lucas. Having property at either of the two towns will have you hugged from all sides by five-star golf courses of the southern tip of Baja.

Best Golf Locations on Riviera Maya

On the opposite side of Mexico, on the stunning Yucatan Peninsula washed by the Caribbean Sea, lays the Riviera Maya that stretches from south of Cancun to Punta Allen, south of Tulum. Offering unparalleled white sand beaches and crystalline waters, the iconic coastline has many things to do, like exploring Mayan ruins and coral reefs and, of course, enjoying the sprawling golf courses. Though the Riviera Maya’s golf culture is more intimate than that of Los Cabos, featuring 13 golf courses located in residential communities.

A few worth noting include the Mayakoba resort community, located near Playa del Carmen, built around El Camaleon’s 18-hole PGS Tour golf course, the first of its kind in Latin America, designed by Greg Norman. Corasol is for those looking for a family-tailored experience. It offers beachfront properties with many family-friendly activities, built around a golf course designed by Nick Price. And Bahia Principe community, located between Tulum and Akumal, with an 18-hole course designed by Robert Trent Jones II, is a paradise surrounded by jungles, lakes, and cenotes.

The Riviera Maya diversity has something to accommodate everyone’s interests and requirements. You could be settling in a small turtle sanctuary town of Akumal, boho-chic Tulum, tranquil Puerto Morelos, vibrant Playa del Carmen, or buzzing Cancun, and remain in the vicinity of the game. But the towns that will give you direct access to the best golf courses are Akumal, Playa del Carmen, and Cancun.

Best Golf Locations on Riviera Nayarit

Located between the brilliant Pacific Ocean and the luscious Sierra Madre Mountain range, north of Puerto Vallarta, Riviera Nayarit is home to popular destinations including Nuevo Vallarta, Punta Mita, and Sayulita. The Nayarit coast has undergone a golf boom and boasts 8 golf courses.

Though Riviera Nayarit is still a developing golfing destination compared to Los Cabos and Riviera Maya, few locations can compete with the stunning views of Banderas Bay and the rainforest backdrop. Nueva Vallarta gives you direct access to some of the best golf courses including Flamingos, Vidanta Nayar, and El Tigre. The latter has hosted international tournaments and has been ranked as one of the best 1,000 golf courses in the world by Rolex. And Punta Mita’s Pacifico golf course offers award-winning facilities and a bucket list worthy 3B golf hole known as “Tail of the Whale” – the world’s only natural island golf green located in the ocean.

Between luscious Puerto Vallarta, developing Nuevo Vallarta, and Sayulita’s surfer paradise, the Nayarit coast is vast and varied, less tourist crowded than its peninsula counterparts yet with a strong expat community. Buying property in Puerto Vallarta and Nuevo Vallarta will give you the fastest access to your favorite activity; however, investing in Sayulita would require an hour of commute but offer a more peaceful atmosphere.

Once a hidden favorite, Mexico’s golfing scene is exploding in popularity, and its reputation is growing. Whether to indulge in your favorite activity in an exotic paradise setting or to seek lucrative investment, there is no better time than now to buy Mexico property near golf courses of championship caliber designed by golfing legends, and located just a quick flight away. Though we hope to have narrowed down your search, to find out if Los Cabos, Riviera Maya, or Riviera Nayarit is more suitable for you, we invite you to take a look at our destination guides.
