Experience Pristine Conditions at TPC Danzante Bay Golf Course

Survey any gathering of traveling golf enthusiasts and you'll find a unanimous verdict: the top priority for vacationing players on their golf getaway is a meticulously maintained golf course.

There are two big reasons behind this requirement. For starters, country club regulars expect nothing less than silky greens, neatly trimmed tees, and flawless fairways because that's what they're accustomed to. Then there are those free-spirited golfers who might not have a local gem to tee off on—they're itching for that pristine course experience when they hit the road. That's where a place like TPC Danzante Bay steps in, meeting every golfer's dream with its top-notch facilities and immaculate greens that exceed every expectation.

TPC Danzante Bay: A Course that Grows with Grace

Since its unveiling in 2017, TPC Danzante Bay has seamlessly integrated into Loreto's picturesque landscape, thanks to the region's favorable climate and the dedication of the maintenance team. Today, the course stands as a testament to maturity, devoid of any artificiality in its design. True to Rees Jones's signature style, the layout's meticulously crafted holes appear as natural extensions of the terrain, whether they wind through mountainous terrain or weave through desert landscapes and dunes.

"Most of the world's most popular golf courses that have stood the test of time were built slowly," Jones explained. "This golf course was done in stages, and it took us close to five years to establish the final routing at TPC Danzante Bay.” He added that “golf holes aren't really designed and built from a plan – you feel them in the land. This land was so good it told us what to do.” The end result of Jones’ patient approach is a maintenance-friendly design built to enhance what nature has to offer.

According to head professional Danny Garcia, who's been with the club since its construction phase eight years ago, "TPC Danzante Bay is in pristine condition and better than ever. We're thrilled to welcome golf enthusiasts to come and see this exceptional course for themselves.

An Eco-Friendly Golf Experience

As with all their endeavors, the owners of TPC Danzante Bay have prioritized the environment while building their masterpiece. Garcia highlighted that TPC Danzante Bay boasts a tee-to-green surface of paspalum, recognized as the most environmentally-friendly warm-season turfgrass available. Paspalum's unique qualities significantly reduce the need for pesticides, insecticides, and fertilizers compared to traditional grasses. Notably, its salt tolerance enables irrigation with brackish or recycled water, which is crucial in addressing water conservation concerns in the Baja desert. Following Jones' guidance, the club minimizes formal turfed areas to ensure sustainable golfing experiences. Additionally, native vegetation adorns the open desert expanses, seamlessly integrating the course with its natural surroundings.

Paspalum: Perfect for Loreto's Climate

Introduced in the 1990s, paspalum blankets the landscape with a vibrant, emerald hue. Its robust, glossy leaves provide a perfect perch for golf balls, ensuring a smooth game. Known for its rapid growth and quick divot repair, paspalum boasts unmatched durability and resilience. It's no surprise that it has become the preferred turfgrass for golf courses in tropical and subtropical climates around the globe.

As Garcia points out, "Our fairways and roughs are surfaced with Sea Spray Paspalum, while our greens boast SeaDwarf Seashore Paspalum. These advanced paspalum varieties are perfectly suited for our sunny climate and thrive with recycled water usage. SeaDwarf, in particular, excels on greens due to its ability to withstand lower mowing heights.

Garcia went on to explain that the club’s paspalum fairways can get very dense and lush, which most golfers like because it forms a cushion beneath the ball. However, the rough has to be carefully monitored. “If the rough gets too high or uneven, it can be extremely difficult to hit out of if the ball nestles down,” he said. The club’s maintenance crew does a good job of mowing the rough to a reasonable height. One caveat: paspalum is sticky. As TPC Danzante Bay regulars know, approach shots that land short of the green tend to stop quickly.

While golfers may not always discuss aesthetics, the allure of a meticulously groomed course against a backdrop of stunning ocean and mountain vistas can captivate even the most focused, score-driven players.

TPC Danzante Bay has transformed into precisely what it aimed to achieve: a breathtaking playground seamlessly integrated with its natural surroundings.
