Club Campestre San Jose

Tucked in rolling mountain foothills 15 minutes from Los Cabos International Airport and five minutes from the historic colonial city of San Jose del Cabo, the Nicklaus Design course at Club Campestre anchors a 550-acre master-planned community. 

Vast sandy waste areas, large-scale bunkers and sinuous arroyos that snake across the fairways call for sound course management. Campestre’s greens, among the most liberally contoured putting surfaces in Los Cabos, can be very challenging depending on pin placement. The signature hole is the risk-reward par-5 seventh, a double-dogleg that plays to a well-bunkered peninsula green that juts into a pond. 

The club’s longer, tougher back nine ascends to higher ground, circulating players around a rolling desert plateau high above the sea. Always in top condition, Club Campestre showcases the raw natural beauty of the Baja desert and represents excellent value.

Course Highlights

  • Carved into sloping desert terrain, each hole offers a fine view of the Sea of Cortes
  • Tee boxes at the par-3 sixth are set on a rocky bluff 40 meters above an oasis-like green complex defended by water and lush vegetation.
  • Par-5 17th, at 606 yards one of Cabo’s longest holes, has a deep pot bunker in center of fairway and an arroyo that crosses in front of raised green.

Green fees range from $135 to $190, depending on season and time of day.

Marek's Comments

“The signature feature at this firm but fair course are the well-contoured paspalum greens, which are smooth and fast.”
