An oasis of sand

What Costa Palmas does best is provide a completely different playing experience than its competition in Cabo. It has similar amenities to the area's best courses - a great hotel (a Four Seasons), incredible comfort stations serving free food and drinks, great conditions - but is more walkable and player friendly, two characteristics I covet. You can play a dozen or more rounds before losing a ball. The trade-off is less scenery.
The obstacles are an endless oasis of sand and the wind. Both my windy-season rounds were spent battling relentless gusts off the water. Because of it, the rounds felt more engaging and fun. I had to make tough decisions on club selection and play SHOTS, not just swing away.
Take full advantage of the comfort stations. They're two of the best in Cabo. Bouchie's (by the first tee) is a really cool hang. It's adjacent to the massive putting green that doubles as a putting course and a driving range that doubles as a short course.
Getting to Costa Palmas isn't easy. It's an hour from the airport in the opposite direction of the tourist zones. But it's well worth the effort.
