Bajamar Ocean Front Golf Resort
Measuring a vast 6,900 yards, the Bajamar Ocean Front Golf course is large enough to host 27 holes, or three sets of 9-holes featuring distinct landscapes and requiring different golfing strategies and skills.
Bajamar’s Lagos nine features expansive and relatively flat emerald green lawns with the Baja California peninsular mountain ranges looming in the far background. Several man-made lakes where colorful fishes and plants reside however, are strategically placed posing a fun challenge to the golfers.
The Vista nine on the other hand, challenges pro and amateur golfers in a different way. Bajamar Ocean Front golf course’s Vista nine has no lakes and water forms where a straying golf ball might suddenly splash into. However, this set of 9-holes has a multi-level landscapes. Greens gently slope up and down, challenging the players by tricking the eyes.
The most breathtaking 9-hole set in Bajamar is no doubt the Oceano nine. Golfers can enjoy the view of the coast, the twittering of the seagulls, and the sound of the waves as the crash on rocks, not realizing that the golf course will eventually lead them into the ocean.
