On the Southern End of Mexico’s Baja Peninsula, Danzante Bay Golf Club by Rees Jones Is Open

BY  ON

A golf course opening is a big deal when the governor of Baja California Sur (Carlos Mendoza Davis) and a member of The Eagles (Don Felder) show up. Those two along with resort developers Owen Perry and Luz Maria Torres, Rees Jones, the course architect and Rafael Pacchiano Alamán, Mexico’s Secretary of Environment and Natural Resources attended last Friday’s Danzante Bay Golf Club house-warming party on the Sea of Cortez.
“Danzante Bay Golf Club is the result of a special collaboration of creativity and vision,” said Jones. “We have been able to create a golf experience that allows you to see landscape and wildlife that you never would have seen before. It is like no other place. The land told us what to do, we walked the area and discovered where the holes should be situated on this diverse site,” he added.

Part of a luxury master-planned community adjacent to the coastline of Baja’s inland Pacific marine sanctuary, Danzante Bay Golf Club debuted 11 holes late last year. The new seven holes – Nos. 2 through 8 – cover different terrains, including beach, cliff and canyon. They combine Jones’s creativity with the natural scenery provided by Mother Nature to charm golfers with views that spread out in virtually every direction.

Guests can experience Villa del Palmar Beach Resort & Spa’s 4,447 acres through a variety of vacation packages. Danzante Bay Golf Club and Villa del Palmar Resort at The Islands of Loreto are a 20 minute drive from Cabo San Lucas, a two-hour non-stop flight from Los Angeles International Airport (LAX), and non-stop flights from Calgary, and from Tijuana are also available.

We Take a Swing at Rees Jones’s Now Completed Danzante Bay Course in Mexico

Discovery abounds at the majestic new resort course on the east coast of Mexico’s Baja Peninsula.

Back in the fall of 2016, the Danzante Bay Golf Club unveiled the first 11 completed holes of its dramatic and unique layout designed by Rees Jones. It’s a course that plays over, around, and between the rocky, scrub-covered buttes of the Sierra de la Giganta mountain range on the east coast of Mexico’s Baja peninsula.

At that time, invited media guests (and, soon thereafter, guests of the Villa del Palmar Beach Resort & Spa) played the first hole, a short par 4 with a wide fairway and few hazards; the ninth hole, a downhill par 3 framed by the clubhouse and a prominent, rocky bluff beyond; and the course’s diverse back nine, a stretch of holes punctuated by the layout’s signature 178-yard par 3 (more on this later).

 

Two weeks before Christmas, the golf club celebrated its official grand opening, with Jones on hand to participate in the ribbon cutting ceremony, to speak about the project, and to evaluate the recently completed holes in the most honest manner possible—with a golf club in his hands. “I was given an unbelievable piece of land,” says Jones. “People now can enjoy the natural aspects of it as well as the game of golf.” read more…
