The centerpiece of an 834-acre resort and residential community fronting the Pacific Ocean 15 minutes from downtown Cabo San Lucas, the Greg Norman Signature golf course at Solmar Golf Links is a multi-themed layout with sweeping ocean views from every hole.
Spanning three different ecosystems, the golf course hugs huge windswept dunes at the start, climbs through a thick cactus forest creased by winding arroyos, transitions across a littoral zone, and returns players to the beach and dunes for a rousing finish. Most of the greens are medium-sized and subtly contoured, though four of the putting surfaces exceed 12,000 square feet in size.
The low-profile layout’s defining characteristic is its revetted pot bunkers. These sharp-edged, steep-walled sandy pits were constructed from recycled artificial turf and are nearly identical to the natural sod-walled bunkers found on British seaside links courses.
For use during the windy season in late spring, Norman and his design team have devised a 12-hole Short Course that consists of 12 low-lying holes drawn from the regulation 18. These holes are sheltered by the dunes and shielded from Pacific breezes.
