Danzante Bay is the latest stunning golf course on Mexico’s Baja Peninsula

Mexico’s Baja Peninsula has become one of the world’s more popular golf destinations the past few years. Now you can add the Rees Jones-designed Danzante Bay Golf Club to the list of outstanding (and eye-popping) layouts.

Located in Loreto on the Baja Peninsula’s eastern coastline, Danzante Bay has been cited as a “featured project” in “Golf Around the World 2017,” the annual report of “golf’s global reach in terms of the supply of golf facilities” prepared by the Royal and Ancient Golf Club of St. Andrews.

It “occupies a stunning setting, 250 feet above the Sea of Cortez to the east and backed by the Sierra la Giganta Mountains to the west,” reads the report, which goes on to say that the course “culminates in what promises to be one of the most photographed holes in modern North American golf, the 178-yard, par-3 17th to a green set diagonally on an outcrop with nothing around it but free fall to the water behind and below”

Danzante Bay has 11 ocean-facing holes situated near the luxurious Villa del Palmar Beach Resort & Spa at The Islands of Loreto. The course features views of the bay as well as the Sea of Cortez as it gently takes players from wavy desert terrain around a crystal lake, through sand dunes, and up into the majestic mountains.

Jones also designed an 18-hole putting course inspired by the famed Himalayas putting course in St. Andrews, Scotland, where families can practice and have fun together. Currently nine putting holes are completed, with the final nine to be finished this year. The final seven holes of the 7,107-yard, par-72 course also will be completed in early November.

“The creation of the front nine holes is an opportunity for us to showcase a completely different part of the property to golfers,” said Jones. “There are interesting landforms that allow us to create unique holes that are different from, but also complimentary to, the other eleven holes. The completed 18-hole golf course will be a journey that golfers will really enjoy taking again and again.”

Only a two-hour flight from Los Angeles International Airport (LAX), Loreto International Airport (LTO) also is accessible with direct WestJet flights from Calgary and from Tijuana via Calafia Airlines (three times a week year-round).
