Developed by Grupo Quatro, the Cabo Real Golf Club opened in December 1994. Home to two PGA Senior Slams and a host of other prestigious golf tournaments, the 7,037-yard Cabo Real Golf Course, designed by Robert Trent Jones II, has what is considered the toughest front nine of golf in Los Cabos. The first and third holes are both par 5 and require two good strokes to reach the green, although failed attempts are heavily penalized. The fifth, a long par 4, offers a tempting view of the left-hand side of the fairway, but demands a perfect tee shot to the right over a ravine to stay out of trouble. While all three have interesting features, the ninth is a par 4 of respectable length and an extensive 51 by 125-yard green protected by a lake that is home to regional marine birdlife. Long considered the favorite of many pros, the Cabo Real course is a must during any visit.
