Make your way to Club Campestre San José for verdant fairways, chiseled into sloping desert terrain, that offer fine views of the Sea of Cortes from every hold. One foursome may tee off every 10 minutes, and a play a full round of 18 holes in about 4.5 hours.
Among the feature holes on this beautifully maintained facility is the risk-reward par-5 7th hole, a double-dogleg that plays to a well-bunkered peninsula green. Campestre’s picturesque back nine ascends to higher ground, circulating players around a rolling desert plateau high above the sea. The par-3 11th, stretching to 216 yards, plays to a large green with false fronts on all sides.
At the par-5 13th hole, a trio of cross bunkers defends the landing area, forcing players to either lay up or carry the ball 235 yards to clear the hazards. The par-5 17th hole (at 606 yards, the longest hole on the course) brings a deep pot bunker in the center of the fairway into play. Campestre’s par-4 18th hole, which drops to a dished-out fairway bisected by a long, multi-lobed waste bunker, plays to a well-defended green backdropped by the sparkling Sea of Cortes.
