Since my cart tour of Cabo San Lucas Country Club in 2012, the club has made some solid strides. The new water treatment system is up and running, two new holes have replaced less enticing holes along the road and the new restaurant/bar built next to the pro shop looks great. Condition-wise, the course is a step down from all the high-end golf in Cabo. That saves the locals and tourists who love the place lots of dough. It's a stern test of 6,581 yards from the white tees. I suggest stepping up to the 6,186-yard gold tees to have more fun. The new par-4 holes - no. 10 and 11 - by Californian David Fleming don't look anything like the rest of the course. Fleming shaped massive humps and bunkers in the fairways and built ginormous greens. The back nine views from there look out at cruise ships docked in the bay. Five of the final six holes feature water, so don't get too distracted.

The course recently changed hands and seemed rather disorganized. Staff was friendly and the course itself was in good condition. If they can keep the green fees below typical "Mexico-astronomical" it will continue to be a pleasure to play and a good value.

This course was in fair shape. They were working on a couple of holes for improvement. Overall, it was a beautfiful course, however, making tee times direct, I don't believe it is worth the value. Using golfnow.com, we were able to secure $44.00 US, which was a good value for this course. I don't believe it is worth the $85 (afternoon) rate the club was trying to charge. Golfnow.com made it a decent value for the $>

The employees were all very nice but the course was not very pleasant. All of the lakes are filled with reclaimed water and the place smells terrible. I know that is normal practice but it was really bad. Pay the extra $40.00 and play at a place where you will enjoy the day more.

It is very near downtown Cabo San Lucas (entrance is next to the Sam's Club), but hard to find due to a lot of road construction. The greens had been punched and top-dressed very recently, so were very slow. Overall, a fair test and good warm up for better courses like the Ocean course at Cabo del Sol.

When I visited the course in June of 2012, Director of Golf Eric Grindereng gave me the amazingly bad-luck back story of the club.<br/> Original architect Roy Dye -- Pete Dye's brother -- passed away during construction, forcing his son, Matthew, to finish the 7,220-yard golf course, which opened in 1995.<br/> Financial woes have plagued several owners of the course, forcing several name changes. In 2001, flooding from Hurricane Juliette took out six of the holes on the back nine.<br/> Grindereng indicated a new owner had the club poised for a rebirth. A recently completed multi-million-dollar water treatment facility launched plans to update the irrigation system.<br/> Nine lakes and small greens make this one of the toughest tests in Los Cabos. The view of the famous Arch at Land's End remains the property's major selling point. It's a beautiful spot, and solid routing, when somebody looks after it.<br/> The conditioning was very poor on my visit, especially compared to the other premier resort courses I played, Cabo Real, Puerto Los Cabos, etc. I was told this is a "working man's" course where locals play.

Longer than expected. Fairways were forgiving. Course was in decent shape.Greens probably could have rolled better, but a very fun round of golf. Good tune up for a tighter course.

The conditrion of the course is a tremondous improvement since last year. The new superintendant has done a great job on the course and the course staff are the best.
