Rating 74.2

The One&Only Palmilla Golf Club boasts a 27-hole layout that is divided into three scenic nines: Mountain, Ocean, and Arroyo. Named after the defining features of their landscape, the nines are played in different 18-hole combinations. Jack Nicklaus designed all 27 holes, giving each a unique character but the same level of challenge. The Mountain/Ocean combination starts out with dramatic elevations. Expect some uneven lies and the occasional blind shot. The front nine offers a diverse mix of holes of varying lengths that all feature plenty of water and sand. The fifth hole is a memorable par 4 that plays over not one but two deep canyons to a green fronted by a deep bunker. On the back nine, the Ocean Course, golfers can enjoy a different view of the Sea of Cortez on every

Struggling

So I've played here 25+ times (I have 25 towels and my wife isn't impressed when you do the math on the cost of those towels.) so maybe more than 25 times, because they don't alway give them out!

I love this place, the staff is what keeps me coming back, time and time again, Israel, Caesar, Jose, Issac, Ramon, Daniel-everyone here knows my name, greets me like I matter and cares about my golf experience.

This is the best group in all of Cabo.

That said, I think the place is in a process of transition, Ocean just opened up from a multi month shutdown post covid. It's not pretty. The greens are spongy, slow and furry, however they are healthy and green. They really need a lot of verticutting and rolling to get them back in their pre-covid form of gonad busting speed and readability, not the case right now. Fairways are rough, need water and are sparse, as are the tee grounds. It's just not ready for play, sadly the entire ocean course really needs some dedicated TLC to bring it back to its former glory, and lots of water and sun without golfers to recover.

Arroyo is closed for an extended maintenance.

Mountian is in really good shape, tee to green, and as fun as always to play. waste areas and traps could use some spiffing up as well, no different than Ocean.

Ultimately I think Palmilla is suffering like many of the resorts from lack of water from the effluent plants to fill their reservoirs and water the grounds, it's tough without guest to generate the waste water used to irrigate the courses. much of palmilla went without water last year because of covid, and is paying the price during recovery.

If only for the good of the staff, I'll be back tomorrow and the next day an so on as the place heals post covid and returns to its former glory, my favorite in all of cabo!

Great course

Second time playing here. The course is so well taken care of. The greens are superb and roll true. Word of caution if playing in the afternoon to drink a lot of water.

Nice Course

I played 3 courses during my trip to Cabo last week and you can't lose with this course, Club Campestre, or Cabo Real. Club Compestre was the best value with my golf now hot deal $60 but all three courses were well maintained and fun to play! I would recommend all three courses.

Another beautiful course in Cabo

I’ve played PLC and Campestre. Pamilla is all Nicklaus. Supposedly, Arroyo was the first course in Baja Peninsula. Most fairways can be on in two, so fun! Most first bunkers are too far to reach off the tees. Bunkers around the green are sometimes the saving grace that I sometimes need. Really enjoyable course. Booked another tee time in a couple of days. I’m a 28 handicap and shot a 100 today. If you need a more challenging course, this course may be the one your bring your non-golfing friend that appreciates the huge variety of desert plants, mountains and spectacular ocean views!
