Playing Palmilla: So Nice, He Did It Twice! @jacknicklaus @OOPalmilla

20130224_081843One of the biggest disappointments for DH, living in DF, is the inability to golf. Minnesota may be cold, but when the snow melts, everyone I know likes to hit the lake and hit the links.

Every Tuesday, he and the boy would have “taco Tuesdays”–they would go golfing and then hit the all-you-can-eat taco bar.

DH decided to hit the Palmilla Golf Club. The course has the distinction of being the first Jack Nicklaus designed course in Latin America. This golf course is Los Cabos’ only 27 hole golf course and is absolutely beautiful. Like Los Cabos itself,  the course is a perfect mix of desert meets the mountains, meets the sea.

Recognized by Conde Nast Traveler, Travel + Leisure, Cigar Aficionado, and Golf Digest, DH was eager to try it out.

It was so nice, he played it twice.

He played the Ocean/Mountain combo the first time, and the Mountain/Ocean combo the second time. He loved the elevated tee boxes.

Having played at many nice golf courses, he was especially impressed by the staff. The greens and fairways were in excellent condition (as one would expect). And, he found the course a respectable challenge.

The course does not have a clubhouse–which was fine with DH–there was a lovely terrace to sit on after playing. He grabbed drinks with his golf partners, and ran into someone we knew from Minneapolis–an old golf buddy.

All in all, he had a great time and would highly recommend it. For my part, he returned home both times smiling and happy, that I was pleased too!
