In addition to a day enjoying everything Pueblito Marinero has to offer, Puerta Cortes is the perfect venue for an exciting game of golf. Just ask the players of the World Amateur Golfers Championship who participated in the Mexico Tour.
The 18-hole course overlooking the Sea of Cortez was designed with both novice and experienced players in mind and is the only course in Mexico designed by Gary Player, a legend in the sport. Mr. Player was present when the course opened for play.
You may be surprised to know that the 14th hole is considered one of the longest par fives in Mexico. The diversity of challenges offered by the golf course makes the game more fun for everyone.
The World Amateur Golfers Championship is the biggest amateur golf championship of the world. It was founded in 1955 by Sven Tumba and more than 40 countries around the world participate.
This year, the El Cortes golf course was chosen to host the national final. The winners will represent Mexico in the international final. The winners were Miguel Senderos in the first category, Juan Manuel Ortega in the second, Ricardo Castañeda in the third, David Carrillo in the fourth and finally, Hans Hutterer in the fifth category was crowned as the future representative of Mexico in the WAGC world final expected to be held next year.
One of the finest attributes of the course is the desert landscape that contrasts with the vibrant green grass and the privileged panoramic view of the blue brilliance of the bay of La Paz.
Among the many amenities found at El Cortés is the Comfort Station, a perfect place to recover your energy with a quick bite or grab a refreshing beverage during and after play. Just kick back, relax, and relive the high points of your round.
