Golf courses to check out in Los Cabos
BY: RICK CASTAGNER

There are many world-class golf courses in and around Cabo San Lucas. I have played most of them. The courses wind through beautiful desert and mountain terrain with stunning views. There are currently 12 public courses, eight private courses and three new courses being planned.

My favorite golf course is the Ocean Course at Cabo del Sol but my home and heart are at the Cabo San Lucas Country Club where I have marshaled and played for over 10 years.

Finding tee times at reasonable prices in Los Cabos is a challenge. Recommend exploring Teeoff by the PGA at www.teeoff.com
