Twilight round at 3:30 to take advantage of huge price break. Price was low but the experience was high. Course was in excellent condition offering beautiful vistas seemingly at every turn and only saw another group once 6 holes ahead of us. So it was basically like your own private course. Fairways and greens were generous that presented options for stress free golf or higher levels of risk depending upon your appetite. Staff was outstanding. Genuinely friendly and waiting for us post round with cool towels, drinks, and big smiles. Like family. Played the ocean course at Cabo del Sol the day before. Beautiful, professional but more of a corporate sterile feel to it. Minders everywhere. Like playing with your boss. I preferred the relaxation of the former.

Played first at Cabo Real 21 years ago. Even will loss of Par 3 on the beach, it's still a good layout and fairly priced for the area.

Maybe I got lucky, but I showed up at 1030am for an 1130 am tee time and I was told I could go out anytime (by myself). Played 18 in just 3 hrs, played through a couple of groups, but the golf course was fairly quiet. Course was in very good shape, apart from the somewhat soft fairways. Picked up several mud balls, and was getting very little roll. Talked with the staff in the shop after my round and they told me they water the fairways quite a bit to keep things green. I'll take less green and more roll please! Layout was good and the back nine is certainly more difficult than the front. Staff and course rangers were very friendly.

As I looked at Facebook this morning I was reminded of the fact that one year ago I was golfing Cabo Real. I remember that I was in heaven golfing. It was my second day of golfing in Cabo but this course was my favourite. I am an amateur golfer to say the least. However I found this course was a little bit more amateur friendly and you didn't have to play target golf as much. The views were amazing and the holes very different from each other. They all offered something different. True ocean side masterpiece.

Cabo Real played very well. Pace of play was excellent, conditions very good. Like almost all course in Mexico, they are just groomed perfectly which makes the experience special.

I will forsure play again when I'm back.

When I last visited Cabo Real in early 2012, I was disheartened to learn it would lose its beachfront par-3 15th hole to a redesign by original architect Robert Trent Jones Jr.<br/> I haven't been back to see the changes yet, but I'm pretty confident those who have never played there before won't miss it one bit.<br/> During the 2012 redo, Jones moved the 14th green closer to the shore. The new no. 15, an uphill 211-yard par 3, heads away from the beach instead of playing alongside it. The new 16th hole, a strenuous par-4, was constructed across the street near the two finishing holes.<br/> The front nine, by far the toughest loop in Los Cabos, climbs into the mountains with gulches and arroyos collecting every errant shot. Don't fret about losing too many balls. Just enjoy the panoramic scenery of the Sea of Cortez.
