LORETO, Baja California, Mexico (October 31, 2019) — TPC Danzante Bay has been awarded not one, but TWO World Golf Awards, earning recognition as Mexico’s Best Golf Course 2019 and Latin America’s Best Golf Course 2019. These prestigious accolades continue a string of international awards for this stellar Rees Jones-designed course, which began earlier this year when Villa del Palmar at the Islands of Loreto, the golf resort connected to TPC Danzante Bay, took home three World Travel Awards for Mexico and Central America’s Leading Resort, Mexico and Central America’s Leading Family Resort, and Mexico’s Leading Beach Resort.
This spectacular golf course, which is situated along the Sea of Cortez and Baja’s majestic Sierra de la Giganta mountain range, has received numerous accolades and worldwide acclaim since opening in 2017, including as one of the Top 100 Golf Resorts in North America (2019-20) from GOLF Magazine, in addition to a Golf Editors’ Choice Award (2019) from Golf Digest, an Editors’ Choice Award for “Best in Travel 2018” from Golf Digest, New Course of the Year (2018) by Golf Odyssey, “Best of 2018: Mexico” for Golf Advisor, and Best New Golf Course (2018) by Golf Aficionado.
Each hole, with its five sets of tees, measuring from 4,916 to 7,237 yards on this par-72 beauty, are defined by coastline, valleys, arroyos, dunes, and foothills. The golf course features wide fairways and greens that must be carefully judged but are never unfair. Most of the entrances to the greens are open—allowing approach shots to run on safely—while the holes along the cliffs feature strategically placed collection areas to keep errant shots from taking the plunge into the blue water below.
TPC Danzante Bay is the centerpiece of a luxury master-planned resort community adjacent to the coastline of Baja’s inland marine sanctuary. Villa del Palmar Beach Resort & Spa at the Islands of Loreto sits on a sprawling stretch of white-sand beach along Danzante Bay, where the natural habitat includes 900 species of fish. Guests can enjoy world-class sport fishing, swimming, snorkeling, paddle boarding, kayaking, and whale watching. In addition to championship golf and the luxurious Sabila Spa, the resort features six swimming pools, tennis courts, miles of well-marked hiking trails, and kayaks.
“Having our golf course receive this significant recognition is truly an honor,” said Luz Maria Torres, co-owner with Owen Perry, of The Villa Group. “Since the day we opened this resort, our focus has been on quality and exemplary service and to be named the best golf course in Mexico exemplifies this commitment.”
Located 300 miles north of Los Cabos, Loreto is only a two-hour flight from Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) via Alaska Airlines, accessible from Calgary with seasonal direct WestJet flights, and from Tijuana and Guadalajara via Calafia and Volaris Airlines.
