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.

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.

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.

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.
