Twin Dolphin Golf Club
Occupying a broad sloping plateau bisected by three major arroyos high above Santa Maria Bay, Twin Dolphin’s naturalistic layout, built by Hall of Famer Fred Couples and Todd Eckenrode of Origins Golf Design, features sweeping ocean views from every hole. Framed by mountains, the course makes admirable use of the site’s natural contours and rock outcrops. Known for its firm, fast conditions, the golf club, centerpiece of a 1,400-acre master-planned community, occupies the site and retains the name of the iconic Hotel Twin Dolphin, a local hospitality legend.
In addition to four sets of tees ranging from 7,156 to 5,011 yards, the club offers three additional sets of combination tees to provide maximum versatility. This unembellished layout has broad rolling fairways, open-entry greens, minimal forced carries and sharp elevation changes. To settle bets, there’s a short par-3 “bye hole” that calls for a 95-yard pitch shot over an arroyo.
Twin Dolphin is a private club offered as an exclusive amenity to Maravilla community owners as well as guests of Montage Los Cabos, a resort hotel on Santa Maria Bay; and Montage Residences.
- A buffer was left on the perimeter of each hole to protect the native desert vegetation.
- No. 11, a drop-shot par 3, plays downhill to a green set above a sandy arroyo. Golfers can play directly to the pin over rocks and bunkers; or aim safely to the right to feed the ball off a hillside onto the putting surface.
- The club’s Nino’s Tees present a sporty 2,300-yard, par-61 layout. It’s perfect for kids, beginners and a casual family outing.
- Players enjoy personalized service, a caddie program, two staffed on-course “Red Door” comfort stations, and a comprehensive practice facility.
