Epic Jack Nicklaus-Designed Resort Course Garners Acclaim for a Second Time
For the second year in a row, Quivira Golf Club has received an Editors’ Choice Award for Best in Travel 2017 in the May issue of Golf Digest.
“We launched this program last year with the mission of identifying The Best Things in Golf, with an emphasis on lifestyle properties, products and services,” said Max Adler, Golf Digest’s editorial director.” Noting that the magazine was “overwhelmed by the positive response from readers,” the Editors’ Choice awards were renewed in 2017.
Golf Digest’s description of Quivira Golf Club in its online edition is spot on. “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 Resort & Spa, a deluxe all-inclusive, adults-only beachfront property favored by golfers.
Last year, Golf Digest inaugurated its Editors’ Choice Best in Golf awards to extend its service franchises (100 Greatest Courses, Best Teachers, Hot List) into “rating the best of everything in the total golf lifestyle,” including top resorts in The Americas and internationally.
In the Mexico and Central America section of The Americas division, Quivira Golf Club was one of only six resort facilities selected. A Jack Nicklaus Signature course opened in 2014, Quivira has quickly established itself as one of the most spectacular new venues in the hemisphere. Created as an exclusive amenity for Quivira residents and guests of Pueblo Bonito resorts, this world-class layout, marked by sheer cliffs, massive dunes and rolling foothills, features dazzling views and breathtaking 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, with views of the Pacific from every hole. For avid players, the challenge presented by Quivira is every bit as scintillating as the views.
“Whether it’s a buddies trip or a getaway with our significant other, what we seek from a golf resort is an experience greater than our usual weekend round,” Golf Digest said of its selection criteria. “We want to be pampered on and off the fairways,” noting that “the joy of a great golf resort” is that “it’s overstocked with activities and diversions, and we get to pick our pleasures.”
