As the undisputed golf capital of Mexico, Los Cabos has pioneered a new way for visiting players to enjoy the game after sunset. Cabo San Lucas Country Club, one of the destination’s original facilities, unveiled a new lighted driving range on May 5.
Located just minutes from downtown Cabo San Lucas and the region’s only course with views of the iconic sea arch at Land’s End, the club’s lighted range is a perfect complement to a town renowned for its nightlife and revelry.
The spacious facility, situated adjacent to the clubhouse, offers 16 hitting stations (12 artificial turf stations and four natural grass stations), with LED lit flagsticks marking the target greens on the driving range. The club also has short-distance target nets, a floodlit putting green and chipping green and, best of all for holidaymakers and night owls, use of free equipment.
“With our full-service sports bar and Viva Restaurant, we’re trying to create a relaxed, user-friendly atmosphere,” said Eric Grindereng, the club’s director of golf. “We’re also thinking of organizing weekly specials and live music nights with drive, chip and putt contests for a range of prizes, from free refreshments to additional practice balls.”
In a game that takes itself seriously, Grindereng said the idea is for golfers to have fun after dark at one of the friendliest clubs in town. A grand opening ceremony for the club’s lighted range is planned for mid-June.
Laid out in 1995 by Roy Dye, brother of Pete Dye, and completed by Roy’s son Matt Dye, Cabo San Lucas Country Club boasts one of the longest (7,238 yards) and most challenging courses in Los Cabos. The gently rolling, parkland-style layout, its fairways girdled by long waste bunkers, desert vegetation and sparkling lakes, compares favorably to courses in Palm Springs, Calif.
