“Unique, exciting and exceptionally diverse Oceanfront Golf”  – Jack Nicklaus

The Quivira Golf Club, designed by Jack Nicklaus, is located next to the Pueblo Bonito Pacifica Resort & Spa and will only be open to Pueblo Bonito Owners and Guests.

With seven holes of the eighteen holes playing to or along the ocean, Quivira Los Cabos will have the most oceanfront play of any course in Los Cabos. Even the practice facilities are located next to the ocean.

The Golf Course has an extremely unique topography, with natural terrain including massive sand dunes, rugged cliffs, white-sand beaches, private coves, and desert canyons, all of which provide the setting for holes that hug the coastline and wind through the rolling hillside.

Jack Nicklaus says that the course offers many spectacular shots, not too difficult for the average golfer, while pros will find this a good challenge and an exciting golf course to play.
Special prices will be available for Pueblo Bonito Owners.The result is a truly one-of-a-kind golf experience – what many anticipate to be one of the best courses in Mexico and abroad.

He was also shown the land where the new Copala development is currently being constructed. Mr. Nicklaus seemed pleased with the progress and met with the crew, sales team, and other guests on the property.
