The 18-hole, par-72 course has six oceanfront holes, four lakes, and spectacular views from almost anywhere on the course. You’ve got the beautiful Sea of Cortez on one side and dramatic desert scenery on the other, with the big splash of green in the middle, where you weave your way between palms, cacti, bunkers, and water hazards. From the 13th hole, you can see four other holes and the sea, while the 17th is pretty spectacular with the waves crashing against the shore next to the green. From the clubhouse and restaurant, you can kick back and enjoy ocean views and pleasant vistas of the 9th and 18th holes. El Dorado is a pretty versatile course, easy enough for beginners and challenging enough for the best, depending on how you take it. Practice facilities are top-notch, with a driving range, putting green, and a pro instructor on hand, while at the pro shop you can rent out carts and clubs.
There are so many 5-star luxury resorts and hotels in this part of the world that you’ll be spoilt for choice. Perhaps the most convenient option is to rent out a residence at El Dorado, where they have casitas, vacation villas, and vacation homes. The residences are seriously luxurious with pools, Jacuzzis, terraces, and fantastic views of the ocean, the golf course, and the mountainous desert. I would have loved to have stayed at one of those plush places, but when you’re traveling solo it’s not exactly practical. Still, wherever you end up laying down your head, Los Cabos and El Dorado Golf Course provide a great vacation and golfing experience in a truly beautiful setting.
