The dazzling course designed by Jack Nicklaus wins for the seventh time
Los Cabos, Mexico – Quivira Golf Club, the epic Jack Nicklaus Signature course etched on a breathtaking Land’s End site at the tip of the Baja Peninsula, has received a 2022 Golf Digest Editors’ Choice Award in the category “Better Mexico and Central America”. It is the seventh consecutive year that the club has been honored with the most respected and widely read publication in sport.
“Through this program, our mission to serve our readers has not wavered,” said the editors of Golf Digest. “We seek to identify ‘the best things in golf,’ with a focus on lifestyle properties, products and services.”
The magazine’s description of Quivira in its online edition sums up the layout’s enduring appeal.
“At the tip of Baja (California) Sur is the newest of more than a dozen Jack Nicklaus layouts in Mexico, and perhaps the most compelling, with holes along and atop granite cliffs and sand dunes overlooking the Pacific,” the report said. “Several nearby accommodations offer access,” including the Pueblo Bonito Pacifica Golf & Spa Resort, an adults-only luxury all-inclusive beachfront property popular with golfers.
Opened in 2014, Quivira’s Jack Nicklaus Signature course is recognized as one of the most memorable and challenging resort locations in the hemisphere. Created as an exclusive amenity for Pueblo Bonito Resorts guests and the centerpiece of the Quivira Los Cabos residential development, this bold risk-reward design, marked by vertical cliffs, massive dunes and rolling foothills, offers sweeping views and vertiginous drops from the tee to the fairway. In a sunny destination renowned for its unique ocean-desert-mountain ecosystem, Quivira offers more oceanside exposure than any other course in Los Cabos. An unforgettable test of any set of tees, this scintillating layout is perhaps the boldest and most eclectic course Jack Nicklaus has ever constructed. Since its inception, Quivira has become a must-visit course for golf enthusiasts around the world.
There is more. Following Quivira’s original 36-hole plan, Nicklaus will return to build a second course at the dazzling Land’s End site. This will be the Golden Bear’s eighth design effort at a destination he describes as “one of my all-time favorite places.”
Although the routing plan for the new course is yet to be finalized, it will occupy a prime parcel in the northwest area of the 1,850-acre development. Holes will be dug in the rolling foothills of the desert and the wide valleys covered in cacti. Winding arroyos flank or cross the fairways. The southern part of the course will offer panoramic views of the Pacific Ocean and the Sea of Cortes. The high, distant peaks of the Sierra de la Laguna range will serve as aiming points on the inside holes. The new site will offer a different challenge but which will reflect the high quality of the existing course. Groundbreaking should begin in the fourth quarter of 2022.
Quivira’s second Jack Nicklaus Signature course will be a full championship-caliber course spanning over 7,000 yards.

The Quivira Golf Club is available to guests of the five Pueblo Bonito Golf & Spa Resorts in Los Cabos and property owners in the exclusive residential development of Quivira Los Cabos.
