Quivira Golf Club
Quivira Golf Club sits at the tip of the Baja Peninsula, offering stunning panoramic views of the Pacific. The unique terrain provides the ideal setting for golf with windswept dunes and rocky cliffs. The course is a Jack Nicklaus Signature design that begins at sea level and sprawls across rolling hills until it reaches its highest point more than 350 feet above sea level. Enjoy breathtaking coastal views from the elevated tees and greens but don't let the scenery distract you too much, there are many challenges lurking throughout from undulating fairways to strategically placed bunkers. The par-3 sixth hole is one of the most memorable, known specifically for the conclave, cliff-top green that was carved from the base of a massive dune. Quivira Golf Club finishes dramatically with a classic links-style hole that plays to an infinity-edge green overlooking the sea.

Having reviewed several previous reviews, I can say the management has listened to the feedback.Close to the first and eighteenth holes there is still some noise due to building a new hotel. It is an exceptionally imaginative course, with incredible views on many holes.
The course was in excellent condition (in contrast to previously having mentioned sand on the tee boxes), with the single exception that it is somewhat over-watered. There is not a lot of roll, but then lofted shots to pins can be more exact. I felt I'd never had so much fun getting a bit beat up on distance.
There are few areas now without concrete cart paths, and directions are plentiful. The course cannot be walked, both because of extreme elevation changes and distance between some holes. But every hole is different and it is challenging.
Full price but under renovation
This is an incredibly beautiful course, and the signature holes along ocean on the front nine are unique and really make you think, closest thing to playing golden tee you can get. That said, there was A TON of sand over almost half the tee boxes and the 18th fairway and the 17th was shortened to a par 3 (Normally a par 4) as it’s getting re-routed. I can’t believe they made me pay full price and didn’t at least mention this when I was booking. When I provided this feedback, they acted like it wasn’t a big deal which I think is crazy at the 200-300+ price range. I would’ve played somewhere else if I knew, lots of great courses in the area.
Quivira started a few years ago and was stunningly beautiful. Nowadays, the tee boxes the fairways and greens are in good condition, however the overall condition of the course is very poorly maintained considering the green fees they charge. The practice range is a mess. There is machinery and construction everywhere around the course. And there is garbage and debris in every arroyo. The carth paths are filthy of sand or there are no cart paths at all. You have to drive in dirt roads full of stones and it seems that you are in a muni course. The carts are in really poor conditions, no wonder with all the dirt roads they have to endure.
Of course the ocean views are awesome and picture worthy in 5 holes, but the other 5 holes with blind shots really diminish the overall design of the course. The comfort stations are very poorly supplied as compared to other courses which even cost less such as Puerto Los Cabos. Sad to say that Quivira is not worth it. If you are willing to spend over 300 on a green fee, you better go to Cabo del Sol or Puerto Los Cabos.
One of my Favorite Golf Experiences!
Played all over everywhere and this is one of my favorite golf courses/experiences if not my most favorite. Sure it has a few quirky holes but the views are absolutely unparalleled. Course is always in great condition. Layout is fantastic. Hard but not unbearable (actually shot my best round in over a year). The winds typically kick in in the afternoon and make the course a lot tougher. Be sure to check out the mens bathroom at the margarita shack before hole 5! Margaritas included after hole 4, 8, and 15. Food included after hole 8. A plus plus.
Incredibly scenic, almost justifies the cost!
The course is so scenic that it's distracting, but pay attention, because it's challenging enough to require your full commitment!
The layout is the most spread-out of any course I've ever experienced, leading to some crazy drives from greens to tees. Like many modern courses, it's absolutely un-walkable, which is a shame.
Conditions were wonderful overall, even with a few aerated greens (they discounted the substantial greens fee as compensation).
The elevation changes are dramatic, so think carefully about club selection to avoid nasty surprises. As an example, number 12 is a 565-yard par 5 from the Blue tees, yet I had 112 yards to the green for my SECOND shot! I hit the drive well and it caught the slope perfectly and ran probably 200 yards. Crazy.
The only thing that prevents me from giving it 5 stars across the board is the cost. It's hard to give a 5-star value rating to a course whose rack rate is nearly $400. That said, if you're in the area and have the means, you absolutely MUST play here - it'll be a round you'll never forget.
Spectacular Views, Very Challenging
Playing this course was the highlight of my trip to Cabo solely due to how gorgeous the course and the views are. My handicap is in the mid to high teens. There are A LOT of blind shots and a ton of hazards throughout the course which made it an extremely difficult round of golf. Comfort stations every 4 holes helped me drown my sorrows though! If you don't mind sitting through 2 hours of hard selling timeshare presentations you can get your golf heavily discounted or completely free. IMO definitely worth 2 hours of your time instead of 300+ green fees.

Esta espectacular el campo es una belleza, todo en las mejores condiciones, la comida deliciosa, una experiencia increíble
Great course but ...
This is a wonderful course and should be no place for a rude marshall (named Tim).
Quirky? Maybe a little. But That easily gets overshadowed by the breathtaking views and immaculate course conditions. Even though we played in July, the course appeared to be in championship conditions and had some of the nicest turf I've ever played on. Bring your camera with you because there will be plenty of pictures you'll want to take!
We played three times while in Cabo, all at similarly priced and ranked courses. Quivira staff was just as friendly as the others, but by far the most memorable.
Your cart has GPS, there are plenty of signs everwhere, and some of the long drives have some of the best views Cabo. I have no idea how you could rank this course anything other than five stars.
Incredible views and a lot of terrific holes at Quivira
There's one stunning hole after another overlooking the Pacific Ocean on the Jack Nicklaus-designed Quivira Golf Club. And the turf conditions of this all-paspalum course are pretty much perfect. Couple that with comfort stations that include all the drinks, food and service you could crave, and you've got quite an experience. But Quivira isn't without flaws. Because it's the cherry picked holes out of an eventual 36-hole layout, some of the distances between the holes are monumental, to say the least. In fact, between the fourth and fifth hole, it's exactly one mile, and it's not the only lengthy drive. You probably spend 45 minutes alone just getting between holes. And the fifth hole, an all risk driveable par 4, needs to be modified because there's simply no safe options off the tee. Still, it's a memorable experience and certainly fun. just a little quirky.
Great views but not worth it
Spectacular ocean views but too many funky holes. The worst part is dealing with the staff. Tee times are made through a central number staffed by people who know nothing about golf. Cannot speak to golf shop. Get different rates everytime you call. Still trying to get a refund for a tee time I changed in April 2015. Golf shop personnel very unfriendly and unhelpful. I have played the course 3 times & just find its not worth the hassle when there are other courses nearby which are better courses & are much easier to deal with.
The new star in Cabo
I've been lucky enough to play Quivira three times on two separate trips to Cabo since it debuted in 2014. It's not my favorite course in Cabo (that's Cabo del Sol Ocean), but it might be my favorite golf "experience". The setting is so grandiose and over-the-top gorgeous. The comfort stations, stocked with free food and drink, are amazing. The course can get a little too nasty being on such an exposed and windy site. I wouldn't be surprised if Jack Nicklaus eventually tweaks the fifth, 11th and 12th holes and a few severe greens, but there's no denying this was an impressive achievement to create such a dramatic routing along rocky cliffs on the Pacific Ocean, over towering sand dunes and through harsh desert landscapes. The shoreline par 3s at no. 6 and no. 13 are truly special. Golfers start their day near the beach on the range and end their day near the beach with a cocktail in their hand in the cool clubhouse or open-air bar. What a place.
