Chileno Bay Golf & Beach Club

Commanding a choice location within the Los Cabos corridor, Chileno Bay Golf & Beach Club is a 1,200-acre private resort community with protected beaches fronting a 2.5-mile stretch of coastline on the Sea of Cortes. Its showpiece is a magnificent Tom Fazio-designed golf course routed in desert foothills high above the Sea of Cortes. Graceful, flowing landforms intended to simulate rolling ocean waves characterize the design. 

Interlaced by sandy arroyos and framed throughout by colorful ornamentals, Chileno Bay presents an ocean view from every hole. Formal bunkers are filled with bright white sand imported from the U.S., with native tawny sand outlining the fairways. The back nine builds to a crescendo at the testing par-4 18th, which stretches to 512 yards from the tips and tumbles downhill to an infinity-edge green. 

Guests of Chileno Bay Resort & Residences, a 92-key beachfront hotel and villa resort managed by Auberge Resorts Collection, have exclusive access to the otherwise-private golf club.

Course Highlights

  • The club features back-to-back par 5’s at Nos. 6 and 7; as well as a pair of “driveable” short par 4’s at Nos. 8 and 11.
  • Chileno Bay is one of the best-manicured layouts in Los Cabos
  • Tiki-style bar stools at the back nine comfort station were salvaged from the former Hotel Cabo San Lucas, a Hollywood jet-set getaway in the 1960’s.

Premier Golf Courses

Resort / Public Access
Dating back to 1992, the destination’s reputation as a premier golf getaway was built by public-access resort courses laid out by leading designers for the enjoyment of visiting golfers.
Private / Resort Access
One of the unique golf categories in Los Cabos is the “Private Resort,” generally a private members-only club that grants exclusive access to guests of a specified resort hotel. Many of the very best golf experiences in Los Cabos are to be found at these exceptional hybrid facilities.
Private / Limited Resort Access
Golf courses in this category are private members-only clubs that grant limited access to guests of a specified 5-star resort hotel. Each of these venues is exceptional in every way, from top designer pedigree and flawless course conditions to deluxe comfort stations accessible during the round.
Private
Los Cabos has two private clubs open to members and guests only.

Marek's Comments

“Tom Fazio at his best: a beautifully detailed course with great pace and variety. Also one of the best-groomed courses in Los Cabos.”
