Club Campestre San Jose
The layout’s verdant fairways, chiseled into sloping desert terrain, offer players fine views of the Sea of Cortes. Vast sandy waste areas, big flashed-face bunkers and sinu-ous arroyos snaking across the fairways call for careful course management. The true character of the golf course lies in Campestre’s undulating, multi-tiered greens, which are among the most liberally contoured putting surfaces in Los Cabos.
Among the feature holes on this beautifully maintained facility, surfaced from tee to green in emerald-green paspalum, is the risk-reward par-5 7th hole, a double-dogleg that plays to a well-bunkered peninsula green, seemingly floating in temptation.
Campestre’s picturesque back nine ascends to higher ground, circulating players around a rolling desert plateau high above the sea. The par-3 11th, stretching to 216 yards, plays to a large green with false fronts on all sides that shrugs off indifferent tee shots.
At the par-5 13th hole, a trio of cross bunkers defends the landing area, forcing players to either lay up, or carry the ball 235 yards to clear the hazards. The par-5 17th hole, at 606 yards the longest hole on the course, brings a deep pot bunker in the center of the fairway into play, with a broad arroyo angled in front of the elevated green.
Campestre’s par-4 18th hole, which drops to a dished-out fairway bisected by a long, multi-lobed waste bunker, plays to a well-defended green backdropped by the sparkling Sea of Cortes.
Always in top condition, Campestre is a local favorite and represents the best value in Los Cabos.
