Three great nines which blend nicely to give you the best views in the area. Make sure you arrive early so that you can take advantage of a spectacular driving range and practice facility. The mountain course has a great 1st hole that sets the stage for the rest of the course. There are some fun holes with some terrific shots . The arroyo course is fun and has some wonderful views overlooking the playa palmilla the best beach in the area. But then you make your way to the ocean where you play a hole right on the ocean. The staff was great Ramon was the man a true all star making sure that you have everything you need and some. He should be named the ambassador of golf in San Jose del cabo. Jasmine was the best beverage cart girl . We saw her five time in eighteen holes and she has to navigate 27 holes . Lauren in the golf shop was very helpful. Th director of golf Jason was fantastic and very welcoming . You can tell he is on top of his game because the staff were all working hard to make sure we had a great time. Palmilla is a must play !

I truly enjoyed Palmilla golf course. I found it to be difficult enough without being arduous. There were just the right amount of forced carries, bunkers, and water hazards. We enjoyed our roundwith a couple of ex-pats that really made theadventure complete. Make sure that your round includes the Ocean course for a great experiance...

Great range with awesome views, calloway balls, fairways & greens were consistent and well taken care of. Best part is the yardage book you are given. Can't wait to go back and play Arroyo, only got to play Ocean & Mountain.

I played this course on Monday,, well sorry I played 9 holes on Monday because there was a 6 ball in front of us that where extremely rude and uncooperative. It took us 3 hours to play the front nine and these guys held us up because they where drunk and had no repect for the people behind them. I went into the pro shop at the 9th hole and the manager said he had talked to the guys to move on and to be more pleasant and respect the other players (which obviously didnt work) He said they where the owners friends and there was nothing he could do and this is their country and to f$$k off. He did tell me to come back any other day and I could play again, but this is no good as its a $70 taxi to the place and plus I'm not sure my partner would be best pleased if I went golfing again. Anyways all and all the views are great and the fairways aren't bad, but be prepared that the greens are in bad condition I guess they must have spikes them. Overall the course is over prices and shabby. I would strongly recommend to try another course.

This is a world class golf resort. The golf pro, Radio, really made our time there. The members of the club are unpretentious and are the nicest people. We got a lot of golfing tips from them at the practice range. Radio ended teaching us golf everyday while we were there and my golf technique improved by leaps. The ocean course is very challenging but the scenery is really worth it. They have a special where you can play after 4pm as many holes as you can before sunset for around $65 per person. This is ½ of what they charge during the day. The sun didn’t set until almost 8pm.

You get a Callaway golf set, towels, tee and golf balls with your tee fees. The cart is really nice and fully stock with a ice cooler of water. Service is impeccable and I can’t wait to come back.
