Cabo Real

Would you pay $$$$ to feel cheated and ripped off! This is how we felt today playing Cabo Real. The course should have been closed. The front 9 was not playable due to a previous irrigation problem and still being worked on as we played. The fairways had large areas of sand and what grass remains was completely dried out. There were ugly rows of sod where they laid new lines. The traps had deep mushy sand that had loads of footprints. Probably from golfers as frustrated as us!
The back nine was bearable but also dry tbut by then we felt cheated. This is not an inexpensive track. So we left feeling cheated out of a great day of golf.
We went to the pro shop following our round and there was no
apologies or refunds. They got our money and it’s our tough luck.
I suggest you avoid being a victim at Cabo Real!

We play Cabo Real today and were very disappointed. The front 9 was in such bad condition that it should be closed. While they are apparently trying to instal irrigation the holes were largely unplayable. The back 9 was slightly better but still dry. All other courses we have played at Cabo are better. To make the situation even worst when we finished we were asked whether we wanted to attend a time share presentation. I seriously wouldn’t waste my time or money again. You have been warned.

We just played Cabo Real this week and the front nine is in horrible condition! Not only that but apparently they did not notify my resort or the concierge at my resort that 3 holes were such bad shape that they aren’t really playable plus a few other holes aren’t in great shape either. Obviously, Cabo Real GC doesn’t practice or know the meaning of the word transparency. We were told at the golf course that they had some holes under repair because they had a sprinkler problem but what are you going to do when you’ve already traveled a few thousand miles and booked your tee times and other activities with your friends in advance.

In my opinion, Cabo Real just doesn’t live up to the standards that it did when it first opened years ago. I’ve been going to Cabo every year for more than 20 years and usually play Cabo Real, Palmilla and Puerto Los Cabo’s. I’ve played most the other golf courses in Cabo too, so I have a good idea of what golf courses are available and the conditions of the courses in the area. If you are going to Cabo over the next couple of months and are an avid golfer, don’t waste your money on Cabo Real GC. If you do, you’ll probably be really disappointed.

Started on back nine, which was very nice. Good condition and great views. However, the front nine was awful - all torn up to apparently install a new watering system. Like a desert. Had to play "winter rules". They did not disclose any issues until we checked in.

Coming from Canada my wife and I enjoyed the course, thought at times a lot of holes on the back nine climbed uphill and was very dry with a lot of burnt grass throughout the holes.

The staff was friendly, pro shop had limited selections, food and drinks from the shack were great. We had the quesadilla and it was fantastic! A couple great holes on the front nine with ocean views. In our opinion, over priced for the course.

Good golf course not great condition but very good layout. If you’re looking for a vacation golf spot where you have wide open fairways easy, accessible greens and easy play ability. this is not your course. There are many forced carries. There are also a lot of bunkers laced into the fairways. Fast greens and lots of undulation.
Very short course for the better player. I played at 6500 yards which was enough. The back tees are 6800. As far as condition was concerned, there were many burned out areas, which was surprising, considering it’s a premium price course. The greens were very good undulating and fast, so be sure you leave it under the hole. some really spectacular views and some really beautiful holes. Something to think about when you go play there is to pick the right set of tees for your game. If you are a high handicapper and you have no control over the ball you might want to think about another golf course. If you’re a mid handicapper, then I say play up a tee from where you normally play so that you can enjoy it and play it well

Overall a good experience if you want a real strong challenge

Disappointed that they did have a set that was stiff shafts. The sand traps were like concrete. The grass was hard turf. Sprained my wrist trying to take a divot.

Beautiful golf course! So glad I played here while staying in Cabo. Super close to Dreams Los Cabos if you're looking for a hotel to stay at. The uber from the hotel to the course was only 5 dollars. I went in the afternoon and wrapped up during sunset. The sky was gorgeous and the weather was perfect.

This course has great views of the ocean and mountains. There's nature everywhere; basically half park half golf course. There are a lot of different kinds of birds to see. When the sun was setting, deer and rabbits started coming out.

My husband and I played at 7:30 am on a Wednesday morning in early May 2023. We were paired with another couple and pace of play was about 4 hours which is typical. The course was in decent shape, gas golf carts which area always noisy and slow. Aside from that, the course played okay. It's a decent course, not our favorite of the ones we played during our four rounds, but a solid golf experience.
