Los Cabos, Mexico honored by the IAGTO as a premier golf destination
When I look outside to see the dreary gray Michigan sky these days, I find myself daydreaming of the blue waters and green fairways of Los Cabos in Mexico.
Turns out, I’m not the only one smitten with the tip of the Baja Peninsula.
Los Cabos has been named the 2012 Latin America & Caribbean Golf Destination of the Year by the International Association of Golf Tour Operators (IAGTO). It’s the perfect golf destination in winter. The weather’s constantly sublime. There’s almost no rain. Cabo is so far removed from the crime issues of the rest of Mexico that safety is never a concern. And the combination of beaches, luxury resorts and stirring oceanfront golf can’t be beat.
My stay last year at the One&Only Palmilla ranks among the best resorts I’ve seen in all my travels. And my morning round on the Ocean course at Cabo del Sol (see the lead photo) rates just as highly.
IAGTO’s awards are voted on by more than 380 golf tour operators from 55 different countries. In determining the best performing golf destinations each year, tour operators consider customer satisfaction, quality of golf courses & accommodations, value for money, professional conduct of suppliers, support from the local tourism industry, and accessibility to tee times.
For travelers looking for great golf deals, several Los Cabos hotels and resorts have developed special TIME2GOLF packages that include complimentary rounds of golf and special amenities, soothing sport massages, cart and club rental and much more. For a complete list of golf packages, please visit the official Los Cabos website at www.TIME2CABO.com.
Los Cabos, located at the tip of the 1,000-mile long Baja Peninsula, is accessible from Atlanta, Charlotte, Chicago, Cincinnati, Dallas/Fort Worth, Denver, Detroit, Houston, Kansas City, Missouri; Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Minneapolis, New York/Newark, Oakland, Phoenix, Portland, Sacramento, Salt Lake City, San Diego, San Francisco, San Jose, California and Seattle.
