As with most golf courses you need to play a few times before getting used to the layout. The golf course is tricky as it has some elevated greens and tees and changes in elevation along with false fronts on the green and areas of roll off on the backs of the green. You have to land your ball in the right place in order to have a chance at par. There were areas on the fairway where the grass had all dried out and died and was muddy and wet. I would just pick up my ball, dry it off with a towel and find nearby grass that was suitable for a fair shot while on the fairway. There are beautiful views of the sunrise over the bay in the morning. The course is not right on the ocean, but back in the city and next to one of the main highways.

We were not going on play this course because of some of the negative reviews. We are happy that we decided to give it a chance. The course has a great layout and is very challenging.
The staff are very helpful and accommodating. There are a couple holes that you have to have to go through a tunnel to access the next hole, it is very clean and definitely not full of fumes, the road noise from the highway is not an issue at all. The course is in very good shape! Lunch was brought out to us on the course. We have played several courses during our stay so far and this is a great course, we will play again.

We played this course 3 times while we were there, loved it , loved the scenery. It is not as difficult as others in the area but it was still challenging

First time playing this course.

If you are a good to better golfer you will probably enjoy the challenge. I am a mid 80's golfer and played the tees I felt reflected that based on slope rating and not distance.

Jack Nicklaus designed this course and I feel he designs for better to elite golfers. With the amount of bunkers on this course you don't need to go to the beach. The 4th hole has more bunkers on it than most courses. Needless to say, difficult to avoid them. I'm a decent bunker player and it came in handy.

The course was in nice shape. Very undulating greens but they rolled true and broke less than expected given their speed.

I have to say it's not a course I enjoyed. I'm on vacation and this felt like work. A different attitude is required to play this course unless you are in the better level golfer category. Thus the 3 star rating.

Scenery is just okay as this course is inland.

The outdoor grill serves great food and more than you expect for the price. I would go back just to eat lunch.

So, my golfing buddies and I decided to play four courses in Cabo this past Springtime. We played, in order, Palmilla, Cabo Real, Cabo del Sol (Ocean) and Campestre. Our two favorite courses were Cabo Real and Cabo del Sol for completely different reasons. Cabo Real is a beautiful, gracious but challenging Robert Trent Jones track in a secluded setting very close to the Rosewood Las Ventas hotel. The staff is fun and friendly. The vistas from almost every hole are just jaw dropping and several holes are things you will remember for a long, long time. Take #3: it's a 185 yard shot from the blues from an elevated tee probably 300 feet above the green with a 180 degree ocean view. It's just spectacular. Take #5: it's a par 4 straight-away right to the ocean's edge. Take #17: it's a dogleg left rather short par 4 again from an elevated tee with spectacular ocean views. Truly, this is just a beautiful, beautiful course in every way.

In a very different way Cabo del Sol is extraordinary as well. The ownership here is investing very serious money in the course and surrounding amenities. For example, there are four or five stations on the course where you can have any kind of taco made to order and any kind of beverage. One way station is on the beach and it is an old converted Airstream motorhome with beach chairs and a surfboard and fire pit. You just sit down, order a beverage, a taco or two and chill before taking on the next set of holes. The course is beautifully maintained. The practice area is one of the best in Cabo with music blaring and an attentive staff. And again, anything that you need is right there. Just take it. Now it's not cheap but we all found it well worth the greens fee.

On our last day we played--or rather I should say--we attempted to play Campestre. And this is where nickel millionaires come to booze out the last year's of their miserable lives. The entrance speaks volumes: it's an alley way off the freeway right in front of a Starbuck's drive-through. We missed finding it twice. Once you find it, you then pass through a completely half-assed guard gate. The guy on duty when we came through was chewing on a chicken bone and asked us to wait until he finished. He then proceeded to interrogate us as if we were crossing the border illegally. Ten minutes later, and two chicken bones, he finally let us pass.

Now this course has one stunning feature: it is bisected by the freeway that runs to the airport. Yup, it runs right down the middle of the course and you transit it by running through smog infested tunnels. While you are teeing off or hitting a favorite iron, there are semi-trailers hauling by at freeway speeds and the noise and fumes add a certain ambience that is enviable.

The real estate being developed around the course is advertised as "a whole completed house for $350,000". And that's the main problem. Because this is the epicenter of nickel millionaire heaven. Every dirt-bag in North America finds this spot to build and live in their version of paradise and they then become members of the club for $100 initiation fee. And they run the club. So if you like ambling, broken down, swollen belly, wind-blown golfers of a "Brandy" sort, this is your spot. As for us, we barely got through the front nine, ran to our cars in the parking lot, and sped away as fast as we could. As we came through the exit gates, the guard was still gnawing on a third chicken bone. Please do yourself a favor. Avoid this course at all costs.

What a golf course. Having been involved in the game for over 20 years both competitively and for fun, and my wife just starting 2 years ago, we would highly recommend this golf course. We liked it better than Cabo Del Sol, Cabo Real and Palmilla. The conditions were superb, their grass is one that has a liking to salt water so the course should be plush green all year round. (Unlike the Bermuda at some of the other courses). The course is challenging but fair and there was little play. The staff is courteous, excited to have you there and cold water, towels, beverages and snacks are always available. It reminds me of a great Scottsdale course with amazing views of the Sea of Cortez. Dial it in and enjoy.

Great new Nicklaus layout in San Jose near the circle on airport highway. No ocean holes but great views and elevation changes. Service was excellent. Gave us a great rate for Cabo ($80) as greens had recently been aerified. A little slow but will be awesome in a couple of weeks. Would definitely include it on the must play list in Cabo.

If you're looking for a challenge then I would recommend you to play this course most greens are very undulating. There are major elevation changes off the tee box which makes this course very fun. The staff was amazing and they also had valet parking, I would recommend this course to anyone that is up for a challenge.

Played here last Saturday the 27th. Had an early tee time. Pace was generally good. We were a 2-some and had a 4-some in front of us. We caught them a few times but they never waived us through (apparently they were members), so we just took our time. Still played in 4 hours 15 min. Course was in great shape, bunkers a little thin in some areas, but generally very good. Got a little windy at times. Basically every hole has nice views of the ocean. Tough greens (multi-tiered) and impossible to stop if you are going sure you hit on the right tier for the pin placement. All in all a nice golf course and reasonably priced compared to others like Cabo Del Sol or Puerto Los Cabos or Cabo Real. I'd definitely play here again.
