Five Great Golf Villas in Cabo San Lucas: Private Estates in at Mexico's Baja Peninsula Tip Offering Golf, Beach and Tranquility
By Dave Daubert
The golfing in Cabo San Lucas is considered to be some of the best in the world. Four of the Golf Digest's Top 100 courses reside within the span of approximately 40 miles, offering global players unique challenges with a breathtaking environment of surf and desert beauty. With nearly 360 days of blue skies and where the Sea of Cortez meets the Pacific Ocean, this tropical paradise's championship courses provide a different level for every golfer. Still, after rising early to meet the sun and the tee, the weary links lover needs to rest in seclusion with a private pool and, perhaps, a cocktail. Thus, we have compiled a short list of a few of Cabo Platinum's luxury villas on or near top-rated courses. Los Cabos becomes the perfect getaway for your next "Stay and Play" by combining the perfect weather, ease of access, and warm, Mexican culture . To book your next Cabo "Stay and Play" connect with one of our Golf Specialists today and get started.
