Quivira GC makes magazine’s top 100

Nicklaus Signature Design on Los Cabos Oceanfront Debuts on Prestigious List

Los Cabos, Mexico (Jan. 18, 2018) – Quivira Golf Club, the epic Jack Nicklaus-designed course set along the mesmerizing seascape at the tip of the Baja Peninsula, has been selected as one of the World’s 100 Greatest Golf Courses by Golf Digest magazine.

A first-time member of the elite 100, Quivira Golf Club is one of only four courses in Mexico included.

Marked by sheer granite cliffs, huge windswept dunes and rolling desert foothills 10 minutes from downtown Cabo San Lucas, Quivira Golf Club has captivated the attention of golfers worldwide since its inception in 2014. A par 72 that plays to a maximum of 7,085 yards, Quivira offers more oceanfront exposure than any other course in Los Cabos, combining breathtaking vistas with unforgettable challenges.

That intoxicating mixture did not escape Golf Digest’s expert panel of international judges.

“To see photos of Quivira's cliffhanging fifth and sixth greens, one would expect this to be a mountainous golf course,” the magazine reports. “But a majority of its holes are on Pacific coastline sand dunes close to sea level or along the flank of a high desert plateau dotted with torote and cardon trees.”

“Still, what earns the attention here is the par-4 fifth, its tee at 278 feet above sea level and its green at the far end of a ribbon fairway 107 feet below,” the magazine description adds. 

The third biennial ranking of the World 100 Greatest Golf Courses is the first to be dedicated exclusively to global layouts outside the United States. The World 100 Greatest uses a single criterion of overall greatness scored by international panelists, including Americans, organized by Golf Digest affiliate magazines around the world.
