Cabo Real Golf Club was first opened for play in December 1994. This extraordinary golf course, designed by Robert Trent Jones Jr., immediately gained worldwide recognition upon opening.
The championship golf course is highlighted by its three spectacular ocean front holes.
The dramatic natural beauty of these holes were captured at its best during the 1996 PGA Senior Grand Slam, when television fans around the world were treated to an amazing performance by whales who were breaching just yards away from these amazing holes.
Three years later, Cabo Real hosted its 2nd PGA Senior Grand Slam, as the pros were eager to once again experience the unique blend of canyons, mountains, and ocean golf.
Cabo Real is one of the stars of the San Jose del Cabo – Cabo San Lucas corridor.
As Trent Jones Jr. remarked, “I attempted to create a high-quality course to look as though it had been entirely designed by the landscape itself, in which each hole provides an ocean view”.
This process resulted in a layout that blends into the environment, so that desert hues, fairways and greens, hills, mountains and the ocean all form a harmonious pattern. It might be fair to say that the architect has more discovered the course that designed it.
