The first Tom Weisskopf signature course in Mexico is the Cabo del Sol Desert Course. This course opened its doors in 2001, promising a target-style golf experience with sloping fairways and plenty of bunkers that will appeal to golfers of all skill levels.

This course’s desert setting makes it unique among local courses. According to Weisskopf, “The natural beauty of the desert, mountain and ocean provides and ideal setting and some of the best terrain for golf anywhere in the world. It’s Cabo’s newest challenge and one of the most scenic courses in the world.”

If you are looking for a course with something for everyone, with a bit of a different flavor than other local courses, the Cabo del Sol Desert Course is a great option.

Need more info on Golfnow

Unfortunately only 12 holes were open due to construction, and the greens were recently aerated. I wish that we could see info like this when using the Golfnow app. Other than that it was a great time, 8th hole comfort station was included in the cost

Course Conditions

One of my favorites courses to play in Cabo. Unfortunately, Cabo Del Sol is being renovated, so you are only playing 12 holes. However, you can play 18 or 24 holes for the same price. Going through teeoff.com its more reasonable, but I think they should have discounted it during this time. Hopefully, they have it finished before my wife and I return again soon.

Course was under construction. Only had 12 holes open. Did allow to play the 12 holes twice, which was good and did make up for the less than 18 holes. Course was in excellent playing condition. Both fairways and greens
If you are looking for a regulation 18 holes, would be better playing some place else. They said the 18 will reopen in November 2023.
Did have a hospitality Casa with good food and drinks.

Great course/value

Played Cabo del sol-desert, it’s 12 holes due to a remodel in progress. You play it as much as you want for the cost of 1 tee time! They treat you great, staff is very kind. Worth the price for sure. Greens and fairways were perfect.

GOLF NOW should have a notice that course is only 12 holes

Cancelled before playing course, but Golf Now fails to have a notice that this course is only 12 holes until December of 2022. Very misleading and would not refund.

12 hole course till Dec 2022

Desert course under construction. Only 12 holes open. Ocean course much more memorable if you can get on it now. All 18 holes for desert course supposed to be open Dec 2022. Discounted rate due to hole closure.

Fast, Firm Greens

Played on a deal time in February and got to experience this course with Weiskopf's greens in full effect. They rolled true and fast but were a little too firm to be receptive. Overall a nice track with a few fun, drivable par 4's along with a couple of real good par 3's. Only knock on this course is the traffic noise from the highway, I would still recommend and will play again.
