Querencia

A private 1,800-acre golf community set in furrowed desert foothills high above the Sea of Cortes, Querencia (loosely translated as “sanctuary”) is one of Mexico’s finest private clubs. Known for its speedy, multi-tiered greens, this well-groomed course takes players on a roller-coaster ride across hills and bluffs. Several holes tiptoe along the edges of deep canyons and twisting arroyos. 

Designer Tom Fazio’s aesthetic touch is evident at Querencia, with palm trees and lush vegetation artfully blended with the native desert border. Broad contoured fairways and harmonious transitions from green to tee and mark this challenging yet playable course.

Among the feature holes is the par-5 fourth, a boomerang-shaped hole that swings around a wide, deep arroyo and leads to an infinity-edge green suspended above the distant sea. The layout par 3’s are exceptional, notably the 164-yard 14th hole, which rests atop a bluff that rises out of an arroyo.
