If you need to get away to the greens, CNN recently named 12 golf resorts offer some of the world’s ultimate locations to play and stay in real luxury. Coming in at #7 within the list is the One&Only Palmilla:
The One&Only Palmilla | Los Cabos, Mexico
The resort of Los Cabos is another prime golfing destination, thanks in large part to the legacy of Palmilla, which opened way back in 1922.
The three 9-hole courses — Arroyo, Mountain and Ocean — were the first in Latin America to be designed by Jack Nicklaus and feature lakes, elevations and staggered tees that allow golfers at pretty much every level to enjoy the game. The One&Only Palmilla resort overlooks the Baja Peninsula and Sea of Cortez for those picture-postcard sunrises and plenty of sandy beaches.
Total cost for a couple for two nights in regular season, including unlimited golf, starts at $2,090.
