Jack Nicklaus Unveils His Epic Signature Course at Land’s End
(Los Cabos, Mexico) – On a beautiful sunny day on a breathtaking site at the tip of the Baja Peninsula, golf legend and course designer Jack Nicklaus officially opened what may be the most majestic course on his resume, Quivira Golf Club.
Also on hand for the gala occasion were Rubén Reachi Lugo, Secretary of Tourism of Baja California Sur; and Alberto Coppel, C.E.O. of Pueblo Bonito Bonito Resorts and Spas. In a token of appreciation, Letty Coppel, co-owner of Pueblo Bonito Resorts and Spas, presented a silver whale to Nicklaus, who this week learned he is to receive the Congressional Medal of Honor, a prestigious civilian award.
Marked by huge windswept dunes, sheer granite cliffs and rolling desert foothills 10 minutes from downtown Cabo San Lucas, Quivira, the sixth Jack Nicklaus-designed course in Los Cabos, is a masterpiece poised to redefine the Cabo golf experience.
"This is one of the great pieces of property in the world,” Nicklaus said. “We tried to create some excitement on the mountain and in the dunes, and I believe we’ve created a golf course that plays as spectacular as it looks.”
The formal opening of Quivira marks a watershed moment in the history of golf development in Los Cabos, a destination revered for its consistently sunny weather and unique mountain-desert-ocean ecosystem. In addition to its stunning panoramas and sharp drops from tee to fairway, Quivira offers players more oceanfront exposure than any other course in Los Cabos. All 18 holes feature panoramic views of the Pacific Ocean, which swells with breaching whales during the winter months.
Completing the experience at Quivira Golf Club is a stylish, thatched-roof clubhouse between the first tee and 18th green that offers a large rectangular bar, a casual steakhouse, and ample outdoor seating overlooking the sea. Beside the clubhouse is a spacious double-ended practice facility that parallels the ocean, as well as an elongated practice putting green and an expanded short-game practice area.
Quivira Golf Club is accessible to guests of the four Pueblo Bonito Oceanfront Resorts and Spas in Los Cabos, and to owners of properties in Copala, Montecristo Estates Luxury Villas, and Novaispania Residences. Each of the Pueblo Bonito Resorts welcomes guests with lavish accommodations, unsurpassed service, fine dining and a host of on-site amenities. Complimentary shuttle service to and from Quivira Golf Club is included within the Quivira development.
