Rating 74.7
Type Private/Resort
Designed by 20-time PGA tour winner Davis Love III, The Dunes course is located beachfront, overlooking the majestic Pacific Ocean. Using the natural sand dunes, Love created one of the most diverse and finest courses in all of Mexico inclusive of generous fairways and large, rolling greens. The course has been compared to legendary courses such as Pebble Beach and St. Andrews in Scotland with the added luxury of Los Cabos' perfect weather. For golfers interested in playing The Dunes, it is important to note that the course additionally features practice areas such as two driving ranges and unique hitting "caves", which are available for use when purchasing a round of golf. Players will also enjoy refreshment stops along the course, breakfast and lunch at the Slider Bar, an experienced caddie and of course, the breath-taking views offered by the naturally beautiful landscape of Los Cabos.

Fantastic experience

I just can't say enough about our round here. We played with 24 guys from our club, and every detail was met by the pro shop with unwavering precision. The course was all we expected it to be.

A taste of a World Top 100 course leaves me wanting more

I can't officially rank the Dunes course a five-star experience like others have until I see the back nine. The front nine was good, but to most golfers, it's considered a mere warm up to the back nine's spectacular ocean holes. I only had time to play the front nine, which was a shame. Paul Cowley, the lead architect for Davis Love III, has built two new holes supposedly better than the original 12th and 13th holes that date back to 2009. Towering sand dunes block the ocean views on the front nine, although they're used perfectly for a handful of elevated tees and greens. DL3 and Cowley designed several interesting "half-par" holes. The par 5 sixth hole plays like a long par 4 of 468 yards from the second set of tees. The par 3 seventh hole takes back that half stroke by playing almost like a downhill drivable par 4 at- 247 yards from the second set of tees. Diamante bills itself as a "private resort" where only property owners and those who rent accommodations inside the community are allowed to play golf. These "Stay & Play" renters must sit through a sales presentation to gain access to the courses. Free food and drink are served at the Dunes driving range (try the breakfast sliders and smoothies) and several on-course comfort stations.
