In a spectacular setting at the tip of the Baja Peninsula marked by windswept dunes, sheer cliffs and desert foothills 10 minutes from downtown Cabo San Lucas, Quivira’s Jack Nicklaus-designed course scales the heights at Land’s End.
The $40 million facility, opened to acclaim on Oct. 9, 2014, commences at sea level near the rolling surf before climbing to higher ground, where the views are a match for the challenge.
The drive to the fifth hole, which traces a switchback route up the side of a mountain, climbs to a tee perched more than 275 feet above the foaming surf far below. The par-3 sixth, its concave clifftop green carved from the base of a massive dune, is equally dramatic. The layout then weaves through the dunes, returns to the cliffs at the par-3 13th hole, proceeds inland through the desert, and drops sharply from a set of elevated tees at Nos. 16 and 17. The par-4 18th hole, a classic links-style creation, plays to an infinity-edge green backdropped by the ocean.
Quivira is accessible to guests of Pueblo Bonito Oceanfront Resorts and Spas, which consist of four properties: the adjacent Pueblo Bonito Pacifica Resort & Spa and Pueblo Bonito Sunset Beach Resort & Spa; and, in Cabo San Lucas, Pueblo Bonito Rosé Resort & Spa and Pueblo Bonito Los Cabos.0
