Centerpiece of an 834-acre resort and residential community fronting the Pacific Ocean 15 minutes from downtown Cabo San Lucas, the Greg Norman Signature golf course at Rancho San Lucas is a multi-themed layout with sweeping ocean views from every hole. Spanning three different ecosystems, the golf course hugs huge windswept dunes at the start, climbs through a thick cactus forest creased by winding arroyos, transitions across a littoral zone and returns players to the beach and dunes for a rousing finish. Most of the greens are medium-sized and subtly contoured, though four of the putting surfaces exceed 12,000 square feet in size. The low-profile layout’s defining characteristic is its revetted pot bunkers. These sharp-edged, steep-walled sandy pits were constructed from recycled artificial turf and are nearly identical to the natural sod-walled bunkers found on British seaside links courses. For use during the windy season in late spring, Norman and his design team have devised a 12-hole Short Course that consists of 12 low-lying holes drawn from the regulation 18. These holes are sheltered by the dunes and shielded from Pacific breezes. Rancho San Lucas is a private resort with exclusive golf access available to guests of Solmar Group hotels, including the new on-site Grand Solmar at Rancho San Lucas Resort.
Elevation The high point of the golf course is the back tee at the par-4 12th hole, which sits more than 100 meters (300 feet) above sea level.
Playing Surfaces Greens, tees, fairways and rough are SeaDwarf Paspalum
Practice Facility Situated adjacent to the clubhouse, the full-service practice facility features a large basin-shaped driving range, an 18-hole putting course, and a dedicated short game area with practice bunkers and target greens for pitching and chipping.
Comfort Stations Two comfort stations, also known as “Shark Shacks,” are strategically placed on the course for multiple visits. Each provides Mexican specialties and ice-cold refreshments, enabling players to enjoy an all-inclusive experience during the round. There’s also a “welcome wagon” available to players at the practice facility.
Walking Policy Walking permitted with use of four-passenger golf carts driven by caddies
