Diamante Cabo San Lucas

Located 15 minutes north of downtown Cabo San Lucas and fronting the Pacific Ocean, Diamante is a 1,500-acre private resort community with 36 holes of golf plus a short par-3 course.

The Dunes Course, ranked among the world’s top 100 courses by both Golf Digest and GOLF Magazine, is a splendid Davis Love III design carved into vast white sand hills set back from the ocean. This breezy, lay-of-the-land links, known for its large undulating greens, skirts enormous dunes and blowout bunkers on its journey to and from the sea. 

Diamante’s El Cardonal, featuring an “Old California” design motif, marked the architectural debut of Tiger Woods when it opened in 2014. Defined by flashed-faced bunkers, this intriguing layout transitions from sand dunes to rolling foothills edged by desert vegetation and winding arroyos. With its wide fairways and open-entry greens, El Cardonal was designed to appeal to golfers at all skill levels.

The Oasis Short Course was designed by Woods for casual, family-friendly play. The flexible design features 12 par 3’s ranging from 41 to 143 yards. The course can also play as a three-hole layout with a 374-yard par 4, a 143-yard par 3 and a 540-yard par 5. 

Guests of the on-site Nobu Hotel and Hard Rock Hotel have exclusive access to Diamante’s courses, subject to availability.

Course Highlights

  • Dunes Course is ranked No. 1 in Mexico by Golf Digest
  • Breaching whales are a common sight from the oceanfront holes during the winter months.
  • Par-5 18th hole, which offers multiple landing areas and calls for a lofted approach to a shelf-like green 50 feet above fairway level, is arguably the toughest finishing hole in Los Cabos.

Marek's Comments

“The Dunes Course at Diamante has rolling fairways and undulating greens set beside the Pacific Ocean. The ‘hitting caves’ at the club’s practice facility blare pop music hits from the 1970s and ‘80s.”
