Quivira Golf Club Rebounds from Hurricane Odile

Destination spared, all Pueblo Bonito resorts now open

(Los Cabos, Mexico) - Quivira Golf Club and Pueblo Bonito Resorts and Spas have made a speedy recovery from Hurricane Odile and all resort properties in Los Cabos have re-opened to guests including Pueblo Bonito Los Cabos, Rosé, Pacifica Golf & Spa Resort and Sunset Beach Resort & Spa.

Quivira, the resort’s highly anticipated Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Course, has also opened for play.  According to Director of Golf Brad Wheatley, the dramatic 7,139-yard layout at the tip of the Baja Peninsula marked by massive dunes, sheer cliffs and desert foothills, sustained minor sand intrusion and cactus loss but otherwise weathered the storm well. The beachfront clubhouse was also relatively unscathed by the hurricane. Special green fees will be in effect at the club throughout the month of October.  Grand opening is scheduled for December 4.

Additionally, the Montecristo Estates Luxury Villas, an exclusive gated community located near Quivira Golf Club, and The Novaispania Residences are receiving guests.

“We have worked hard to re-establish all services and to repair, even improve, aspects of the resorts,” Ernesto Coppel, president of Pueblo Bonito Hotels and Resorts.  “I have always insisted on having structurally sound, high-quality facilities, and because of this, our resorts were in relatively good condition after the hurricane. We are fortunate that our recovery time has been this fast.”

Electricity, telephone, Internet and potable water supplies have been fully restored in Cabo San Lucas. No major structural damage was inflicted by the storm, enabling the destination to recuperate quickly.
The federal government has made the recovery of Los Cabos, Mexico’s third most popular tourism destination, a top priority. (Los Cabos, which includes Cabo San Lucas, San Jose del Cabo and the 20-mile ‘corridor’ between them, attracts about 2 million visitors per year, many of them golfers).

“We are very happy to welcome guests once again to our Cabo San Lucas resorts, which are as spectacular as ever,” Coppel said, noting that most guests with upcoming travel plans have decided to keep their reservations intact.
