A Big Travel Industry Award for Los Cabos

November 29, 2016

The International Association of Golf Tour Operators (IAGTO), a global trade association of the golf tourism industry, has named Los Cabos, Mexico as the ‘Latin America & Caribbean Golf Destination of the Year’ for 2017 in recognition of its exceptional golf courses and unique geographical setting.

Situated at the tip of the Baja Peninsula, at the place where the Sea of Cortes meets the Pacific Ocean, Los Cabos boasts an extraordinary mountain-desert-ocean environment where several of the game’s top designers have crafted some of the world’s finest courses.

“We are delighted to accept this prestigious award from the world’s leading association of golf travel providers,” said Rodrigo Esponda Cascajares, Managing Director of the Los Cabos Tourism Board. “Dating back to the early 1990s, we have welcomed some of the most spectacular golf facilities in the world. The recent addition of several outstanding newcomers has raised the bar of excellence and taken the Los Cabos golf scene to the next level.”

No Cabo newcomer takes better advantage of the unique topography at Land’s End better than Quivira, the stunning Jack Nicklaus Signature golf course that, like the destination itself, has been showered with international awards and accolades. Marked by sheer granite cliffs, huge windswept dunes and rolling desert foothills, this epic 7,139-yard layout has more oceanfront exposure than any other course in Los Cabos. Arguably the most daring and eclectic course Jack has ever built, Quivira is an aesthetic tour de force and an unforgettable test of golf from any set of tees. Complimentary Mexican specialties and refreshments are served at the club’s four comfort stations, notably at the open-air Oasis near the eighth hole. Seated at a table overlooking the rolling dunes, verdant fairways and glittering sea, players can contemplate the fact that golf-wise, Quivira is the whole enchilada.
