Greg Norman, the famous golfer turned course designer, has been hired to build 2 new golf courses in Baja California Sur. Including a large golf complex that will presumably feature a course and a half in Los Cabos.
The Los Cabos project will have a total of 27 holes on 1302 acres of land on the Cabo coast. In the original plan, the course will feature a tad less than a mile of holes running along the beach.
Along with the course, 2 new luxury hotels with private villas are set to be built in the area. According to the original plans, there will also be private homes built along the golf course. The ambitious plan could begin construction as early as this year.
It’s not entirely clear whether this massive real estate development will tie into one of the projects that are already slated to be built in Los Cabos or they’ll be a part of a completely new project.
This is by no means the first time Greg Norman ventures into doing business in Los Cabos. He actually built the Grand Solmar golf links course and the course at the Rancho San Lucas golf club. Both of them are located to the northeast of the Cabo San Lucas marina area.
Presumably, these two new golf courses are projects that are independent of both Grand Solmar and the Rancho San Lucas course. Even though the Rancho San Lucas concept is very similar to the new Greg Norman project that is being presented.
Saudi Money And The LIV Tour Could Be Involved In The Construction
With Greg Norman on board with the project, there’s high speculation that Saudi Arabia-led LIV golf tour is highly involved in this construction process. Norman is the CEO of the LIV golf tour. A golf tour that was built to be able to rival the PGA Tour.
These new golf courses would seemingly get their own world-renowned professional golf tournaments, with some of the best players in the world coming to Cabo yearly once they are finished.
This would put Cabo very much at the center of the Mexico pro golf scene if it weren’t already. The area is known for having the best courses in Mexico. However, the PGA Tour has decided to play in Mayakoba near Cancun and, most recently, Mexico City instead of Los Cabos.
LIV golf is actually also headed to Mayakoba this week to host its tournament there. With these new courses, it could be said that the LIV Tour is showing much more interest in the Mexican market than the PGA ever did.
The Loretto Golf Resort Could Be An Even More Appealing Project
We mentioned that there is a second course that will also be designed by Norman in Baja California Sur. We’re not referring to the 9-hole second course on the Los Cabos site. The Aussie former golfer is actually also in line to design a course in nearby Loreto. This is a resort town which is located about 2 hours north of La Paz.
Currently, it’s known more as a small resort town, certainly lacking the Cabo or even La Paz resort infrastructure.
This golf course is going to cover 1482 acres of land and will feature cliff-side and beach-side holes on the course. Part of the land that is reportedly going to be used for the project overlooks the Sea of Cortez.
Apart from the golf course, there are actually 3 or even 4 luxury resorts planned to be built on the property.
The original idea contemplates building a boutique hotel as part of the golf resort. From there, at least 2 more hotels are slated to be built in the region. On top of the hotels, the idea is to build an equestrian complex on the property as well as make sure it features a winery and vineyard for tourists to visit.
