Beauty along the Baja coastline

All 18 holes of architect Tom Doak’s first course design in Mexico opened in late November on a desolate spit of eastern Baja coastline where the rugged hills crash into the Sea of Cortez.

Doak’s layout anchors the 4,000-acre Bahia de los Suenos, a residential and resort project well removed from the population centers of La Paz to the north and Los Cabos to the south. The ambitious project has six miles of coastline, and the course opens and closes along a scenic cove. This is the first course on which Doak has used saltwater-tolerant Paspalum grass.

The course is open for play by prospective property owners and their guests.
