The Danzante Golf Course in Loreto Bay Mexico
Designed by World Famous Golf Course Designer Rees Jones, who said “This will be one of the best golf courses in the world!”
This is the first golf course Jones designed on Mexican soil and he certainly didn't disappoint. His inspiration was the world famous "The Himalayas" course in Scotland which is accessible to golfers of all talent levels. Jones specializes in developing challenging but still accessible golf courses that highlight and accentuate the environment that they are created in.
Not only will your golfing experience here take you through all different heights and settings, some of the holes feature the once in a lifetime views of the Sea of Cortez, the surrounding islands of Loreto and the Sierra de la Giganta mountain range all inside of a protected marine park.
Slated to cost $25 million after the final holes are completed in November 2017, this 7,400-yard course is designed with Paspalum turf which is best for the hot and temperate climates of the Loreto Bay. This is truly a one of a kind golf course, which first opened in April 2016. On the course you'll encounter sandy dessert cacti views, to epic mountain high rises and end with the breathtaking ocean views. Where else might you spy whales and dolphins playing in the surf while you golf? Currently 11 holes are completed with the final 7 holes currently under construction and slated to be completed in October 2017. Much more importance has been placed on designing the best golf course in the world rather than finishing the course as quickly as possible.

The star of the course is the 17th hole, situated high up with sweeping views of the ocean and many have already called it one of the most stunning holes in golf today.
Owen Perry, owner of the resort property is so confident in the success of the Danzante Golf Course that he is creating a community at homes near the 7 holes that are for sale.
This is one of the most untouched coastlines in the world and the Villa del Palmar resort works hard to maintain the surroundings of their treasured and protected marine park. The conditions change with the weather and there are several elevation changes so avid golfers will definitely want to play the course many times over. There is a 250 foot difference in the elevation from the start to the end of the course. The golf course is a major highlight and amenity of the all-inclusive resort and is enjoyed by the hotel guests and homeowners.
