5 Things You May Not Know about Quivira Golf Club

Sep 16, 2022

There’s something special about Quivira Los Cabos–more than its beautiful coastline and windswept dunes, immaculate golf course and private homes-away- from-home. Quivira holds secrets beneath its surface, hiding in plain site. And until you visit our valley in the sun, you may not be able to uncover many fun facts for yourself. So here’s our insider perspective on five of the Golf Club’s best kept secrets that we can’t wait for you to unwrap when you get here.

1. Given the name Paraiso Escondido, or “hidden paradise,” it should come as no surprise that our little haven in Quivira Los Cabos holds a few secrets. The valley is tucked away behind a low slung mountain that effectively hides from view the 1,850-acre resort community and its 2.5-mile stretch of pristine ocean beach. While situated a mere 10 minutes from downtown Cabo San Lucas, the valley’s unique geography ensures that Quivira will always be a tranquil hideaway far removed from the bustling tourist attractions and sprawling commercial marina nearby. Pueblo Bonito Resorts founder, Ernesto Coppel, dubbed it the “hidden paradise” himself; with its stairsteps down to the sea along a serpentine road that’s carved into a steep mountain ridge, the property has more than fulfilled its promise as the ideal setting for a world-class hideaway.

2. Did you know Quivira is the sixth Jack Nicklaus-designed course in Los Cabos? It’s true! The golf great’s handiwork at Quivira is an engineering marvel and totally maximizes the region’s mountain-desert-ocean ecosystem. According to Nicklaus, “Quivira is loaded with really, really good golf holes and unique golf holes. There is a great stretch even before you get to the ocean holes, which are unlike anything else in Cabo or many other places. I’ve never seen any place that has three holes hanging out over the ocean like this golf course does. They are unbelievable. This is a diverse golf course with inland settings: it’s got desert, it’s got ocean, it’s got rocks, it’s got a little bit of everything. And it’s not a hard golf course. We’ve made the course very user-friendly. It will look difficult because of where it is, but I think…the course is very playable.” Of course, we like to remind any amateur golfers that you’ll have plenty of room to practice before you “drive” toward the ocean cliffs. Situated beside the Quivira Clubhouse is a spacious, double-ended practice facility that parallels the ocean, with the sandy beach and rolling surf a mere wedge shot away from the verdant turfgrass.

3. Of all the holes on the course, the par 3 13th hole is a good place to make a hole-in-one. In fact, numerous “aces” have been recorded there since the club opened in 2014. Why is this short, spectacular, but visually intimidating par 3 so forgiving? One big reason: if you’re not brave enough to aim over the abyss directly at the pin, a kicker slope on the left side of the hole generally pitches the ball onto the tiny tilted green. That green sits atop a massive pinnacle of sculptured granite rising 100 feet from the surf. And since the pin is generally cut on the right side of the putting surface, a conservative shot played safely to the left has a decent chance of chasing across the green and dropping into the cup for a ONE. Now what golfer doesn’t like to see that number recorded on her scorecard? For more information about hole lengths and course description, visit the Quivira Los Cabos website and select Golf Fact Sheet under the Rates subheading.

4. As Quivira golfers know, the cart path leading to the 7th tee swings past a dramatic stretch of seaside cliffs to an equally memorable site: the region’s original lighthouse. Situated at kilometer zero at true Land’s End—the exact place where the Sea of Cortez meets the Pacific Ocean—the castle-like fortress, known as Faro Viejo, rises from the water’s edge. Dating back to 1905, the lighthouse is the oldest standing structure in Cabo San Lucas. Perched more than 200 feet above the turbulent surf, this National Historic Monument, no longer in use, is known for its octagonal stone tower. For more than a century, its sturdy construction has withstood every hurricane that’s hit Los Cabos. Its functional successor, a red-and-white-striped tower that dates to 1959 and sits high above the 14th hole, peers down on the course from its rocky mountain perch nearly 700 feet above sea level. At night, Cabo’s newer lighthouse emits a white flash every few seconds to guide ship traffic.

5. Quivira is the proud recipient of a 2022 Golf Digest Editors’ Choice Award, placing it among the “Best Mexico & Central America” golf resorts. This is the seventh consecutive year the club has been singled out for recognition by the sport’s most widely read and respected publication. According to editorial director Max Adler, “We seek to identify for (our readers) the ‘Best Things in Golf,’ with the emphasis on lifestyle properties, products, and services.” Golf Digest also ranks Quivira “One of the World’s 100 Greatest Golf Courses” and No. 7 in Mexico. To quote Golf Digest, “At the tip of Baja Sur is the newest of more than a dozen Jack Nicklaus layouts in Mexico, and perhaps his most compelling, with holes along and atop granite cliffs and sand dunes overlooking the Pacific.” Uncover Quivira’s secrets and enhance your golf getaway with luxurious accommodations and gourmet dining at one of five Pueblo Bonito properties in Cabo San Lucas.
