In Los Cabos, Play by Suzanne Koch

Quivira Golf Club, the epic Jack Nicklaus Signature-designed course etched across a dazzling site at the tip of the Baja Peninsula, has received a 2019 Golf Digest Editors’ Choice Award for ‘Best Resorts – Mexico and Central America’. This is the fourth consecutive year the club has been singled out for recognition by the sport’s most respected and widely-read publication.

“This program now enters its fourth year, and our mission to serve our readers has not wavered,” said Max Adler, the magazine’s editorial director. “We seek to identify for (our readers) ‘The Best Things in Golf,’ with an emphasis on lifestyle properties, products and services.”

In addition to the prestigious Readers’ Choice Award, Golf Digest’s panelists have voted Quivira to the magazine’s elite list of the “World’s 100 Greatest Golf Courses.”

Golf Digest’s description of Quivira Golf Club in its online edition sums up the dramatic layout’s appeal. “At the tip of Baja (California) 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,” the report stated. “Several lodging facilities nearby offer access,” including Pueblo Bonito Pacifica Golf & Spa Resort, a deluxe all-inclusive, adults-only beachfront property favored by golfers.

Opened in 2014, the Jack Nicklaus Signature course at Quivira is recognized as one of the most impressive resort venues in the hemisphere. Created as an exclusive amenity for guests of Pueblo Bonito Resorts and Quivira Los Cabos residents, this daring risk-reward design, marked by sheer granite cliffs, massive windswept dunes and rolling desert foothills, features breathtaking views and dizzying drops from tee to fairway. In a sun-splashed destination celebrated for its unique ocean-desert-mountain ecosystem, Quivira offers more oceanfront exposure than any other course in Los Cabos. An unforgettable test from any set of tees, this 7,085-yard, par-72 tour de force may be the most daring and eclectic course Nicklaus has ever built.

Selected award-winners will appear in Golf Digest’s June print issue and all award- winners will be featured on GolfDigest.com.
