Cabo Golf Courses: Mayan Palace Golf
Los Cabos

Mayan Palace Golf Los CabosA Mario Shedjnan design, Mayan Palace Golf Los Cabos (formerly the San José Municipal Golf Course) is a meticulously maintained course meant for both intermediate and beginner golfers. However, golfers of any skill level will appreciate playing this interesting layout that is completed integrated into the desert and ocean geography. Its warm and friendly family atmosphere is enhanced by the colorful bouganvilleas that surround the course. If you are looking for a change of pace from the surrounding championship courses, this fun 9-hole course is an excellent alternative.

Mayan Palace Golf Los CabosThe first tee offers a panoramic view of the Sea of Cortez. This par four hole slopes downward, with a wide fairway that doglegs to the left. The 7th hole features more dramatic ocean views on the left, and a mountain view facing you as you approach the green. This hole is particularly challenging, with a large lake at the bottom as well as a lateral sand trap at the back of the green. The final hole of the course is another favorite, with a wide sloping fairway with numerous sand traps.

No reservations are required at Mayan Palace, but it does tend to be crowded. As one of the cheapest of all the local courses, it is advised to book in advance to get preferred tee times.

"My wife and I enjoyed several trips to the area, staying at Laguna Vista each time right off the 6th hole of what in 1994 was the Campo de Golf course. I believe I paid $45 USD for 18 holes. At the current prices, you would never get my money to play there again! An interesting phenomenon of many of the corridor courses (if not all) is that they have such little play! Gee, I wonder why! My tennis game will improve..." Overall rating: 2/5 - Service rating: 4/5 - Would not play again. — Michael M., Kelowna, BC, CAN

"I played this course for 8 years, then Mayan Palace took it over and the rates went sky high. I haven't played it since. The Mayan Palace people aren't very accomodating to lower rates or package deals. The course is short, but challenging, because of a lot of sand traps around the greens. It is in average condition. The greens are not nearly as good as all the other expensive courses, but they are playable. It appears golf in Los Cabos is going to be the most expensive in Mexico and a rich man's destination." Overall rating: 3/5 - Service rating: 2/5 - Would play again! — Roger G., Priest, ID, USA
