Club Campestre San Jose, designed by the world-famous Jack Nicklaus Signature enterprise, is home to 18 picture-perfect, championship-style holes of golf. This is the first course to use the saltwater-resistant “Paspalum” grass, which means that its maintenance is more effective at local latitudes and under local desert conditions. This revolution in golf course design will make for a brilliantly maintained golf course, year round. With spectacular views of the Sea of Cortez and desert mountains, Club Campestre will offer anyone who plays a fantastic golf experience.

Nicklaus gone wild

I enjoyed this course. I really did.
I also have a duty to warn others of the overly difficult greens Jack Nicklaus designed. At least five times my playing partner and I hit what we thought were really good chips or approach shots, only to watch them tossed aside by false fronts or ridges and end up somewhere dreadful. Come on, Jack. Not all of us have 18 major championships.
This course doesn't deliver some of the other staples of Cabo golf - no ocean holes or comfort stations - but there are a few nice panoramic views of the Sea of Cortez along the way. The routing has no bad holes and quite a few good ones. You'll be glad you played here.

Very pleasant surprise

This is the third course we played in the Los Cabos area. We previously played Diamante (Dunes) and Vidanta San Jose.
The layout is a wonderful Nicklaus design... with spacious fairways, numerous hazards (LOTS of bunkers, arroyos and some water) but they are right in front of you and force you to think about your strategy on the hole; large, undulating greens that insist you hit the correct portion of the green to avoid 3-putts,, as some pin placements are in small sections.
I played blue, my wife played red. As a 24 handicapper, she was very happy this course is "chick-friendly" in terms of distance, but has "tee-appropriate" water hazards and fairway bunkers that required her to think about tee shots, as well. The carts have full-featured GPS, which neither Diamante nor Vidanta have.
There is an excellent short game practice area and range (balls included in the price). Although not on the water, the scenery is very nice with lots of views of the Sea of Cortez. Three holes are on the North side of the highway.
The staff was very friendly, rest stations located after #4, #7, #9, #15. There was a drink cart on course and Drinks and food available at the turn after 9 and 18. Ice cold towels after the round are a great touch. We will definitely play here again!
