As the Danzante Bay Golf Club gears up for its Grand Opening, excitement spreads among those planning to attend the sensational event. Not only does the four-day affair inaugurate one of the most anticipated courses in Mexico to open in recent years, but it also features the musical talents of a legend. Don Felder, the former guitarist for the Eagles, is set to take center stage at the Grand Opening Celebration Dinner on Friday, December 8th, making the sensational event even more spectacular.
The legendary guitarist has been entertaining crowds with his musical gift and electric performances for quite some time. As a former member of the Eagles, one of the most influential rock groups to ever take the stage, Felder helped to compose some of the group’s greatest hits, including Grammy winner Hotel California, Victim of Love, and Those Shoes, each of which garnered the group fame and recognition. Earning his way into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1998, Don Felder has been honored as a signature guitarist whose lyrical tunes will forever be revered by fans and those in the music industry. In addition to making his mark on the music world, Felder has also topped the charts in a completely different arena, becoming a New York Times bestselling author with his captivating memoir Heaven and Hell: My Life in The Eagles. With connections to musical greats and a drive that won’t quit, there seems to be no challenge too big for this rock and roll legend.
Felder is no stranger to the game of golf nor the region of Baja California. In fact, he and his family have been vacationing along the Baja coast for decades, frequenting towns like Los Cabos and enjoying a round of golf whenever the opportunity arises. His passion for both travel to Mexico and the prestigious game of golf has made him the perfect candidate to play at such an epic affair as the Danzante Bay Golf Club Grand Opening.
For guests staying at Villa del Palmar at the Islands of Loreto from December 7-10, the appearance of Don Felder is a dream come true. Not only will attendees to the Grand Opening of the Danzante Bay Golf Club be treated to spectacular entertainment and fine dining during their stay at the luxury resort in Mexico, but they’ll also be rewarded for their travels with an exclusive Don Felder performance they won’t want to miss. Between parties on the beach, conferences with golf architect Rees Jones, and an epic performance by such a renowned musician, reserving your space at the Grand Opening of the Danzante Bay Golf Club is more enticing than ever.
