Golf at the Islands of Loreto
It is hoped that the first 5 holes at Villa del Palmar at the Islands of Loreto golf course will open in December 2014. This ambitious project will have a lake at its heart, joining together 2 holes (10 and 11), green contours that will be manageable in windy conditions and sandy pockets. Paspalum turf will be used, which is perfect for the Baja California climate. The course, which will showcase sea views, streams, valleys, dunes and foothills, will be designed to suit both the casual and professional golfer.
Villa del Palmar at the Islands of Loreto offers you the chance to play golf in the sunshine and in luxury. You can walk on the beach first thing, kayak in the afternoon, have a round on the course in the evening and, after it all, relax in the fantastic Sabila Spa with a soothing massage. What a day!
