The Simple Pleasures of the Bajamar
Golf Resort

Approaching Bajamar's entranceThe Bajamar Golf Resort offers rare beauty and drama to even the most experienced golf traveler. Its reputation as a “little Pebble Beach” creates high expectations that are well-deserved. While Bajamar is worthy, it isn't world class... yet. However, a golf course doesn't have to be world-class to provide golfers with inspiration, a chance to practice, and great fun.

Bajamar's 6,900 yard layout is extremely balanced in its playability and features the striking natural beauty of the Baja. Indeed, the gorgeous surroundings of the ocean holes are almost a distraction. The fairways have some yellowish spots and can be somewhat firm, but these small imperfections create a longer drive potential, similar to playing Colorado's mountain courses.

Golfing at Bajamar is relatively inexpensive. As the resort's owners have not started reinvesting in the property yet, golfers can take advantage of this transition period and will find some fabulous stay and play deals. You can find weekday specials that include a 1-night stay, 27 holes, breakfast and lunch for about $100 USD.

The three nines at Bajamar are quite distinctive. The Lagos nine are much like playing golf in Florida as the holes are flat and feature plenty of water. For the drier Vista holes there are more elevation changes which makes it like Arizona golf. Bajamar is renowned for its Oceano holes, the first few of which are par 4s, leading eventually to the ocean. Number 5 of Oceano is an impressive par 3 (185 yards from tip to tip), and a forced carry over a cove, with surf crashing onto lava rocks just beneath the tee box. Quiet days on the green offer golfers the opportunity to drop an extra couple of practice balls.

One of Bajamar's amazing ocean holesBajamar doesn't compete with the exclusive resorts in Los Cabos or Puerto Vallarta, but it's not trying to. It's convenient and affordable, and remains casual enough to be a favorite destination for travelers from California and Arizona who seek a quick escape from the daily grind and some post-round margaritas. The resort features tennis courts and a swimming pool, and the rooms are finished in Mexican colonial style. If you don't mind driving to reach the golf course, Ensenada is just 20 minutes away and has lots of accommodations.

Dining out on a trip to Bajamar is always a treat. In particular La Fonda Del Rio, adjacent to La Mision Hotel, the Palm Grill, located on Km 29 of Carretera Libre, and La Palapa de Jose, below La Mision are three of the best options.

Golfers heading south the border for a short getaway at Bajamar can't go wrong! Sample the exciting culture of Mexico and experience an affordable round of memorable resort golf. These simple pleasures are what life is all about!
