LORETO, Baja Cal­i­for­nia, Mex­ico (Nov. 9, 2017) — The newly com­pleted Dan­zante Bay Golf Club, the stun­ning Rees Jones show­piece of Villa del Pal­mar Re­sort at The Is­lands of Loreto, is un­der­go­ing fi­nal prepa­ra­tions for its Grand Open­ing Cel­e­bra­tion on Fri­day, Dec. 8, 2017.

Part of a lux­ury mas­ter-planned com­mu­nity ad­ja­cent to the coast­line of Baja’s in­land Pa­cific marine sanc­tu­ary, Dan­zante Bay Golf Club de­buted 11 holes late last year. The new seven holes will play as No. 2 through No. 8.

“We’re thrilled to un­veil the com­pleted 18 holes,” said Owen Perry, owner and pres­i­dent of The Villa Group, de­vel­oper of the prop­erty. “It is like no other place. We have been able to cre­ate a golf ex­pe­ri­ence that changes as you play, on a golf course that al­lows you to see and land­scape and wildlife that you never would have seen be­fore.”

The views at Dan­zante Bay stretch out to­ward the indigo hori­zon, am­pli­fy­ing the shim­mer­ing waters of the Sea of Cortez. Golfers can en­joy glimpses of mi­grat­ing whales and other marine life that sur­faces be­low the jut­ting cliffs.

The seven new holes cover many dif­fer­ent ter­rains, in­clud­ing beach, cliff, and canyon. They com­bine the ge­nius of Jones with the nat­u­ral scenery pro­vided by Mother Na­ture to charm golfers with views that spread out in vir­tu­ally ev­ery di­rec­tion.

“The cre­ation of the new­est holes is an op­por­tu­nity for us to show­case a com­pletely dif­fer­ent part of the prop­erty to golfers,” Jones said. “There are in­ter­est­ing land­forms that al­low us to cre­ate unique holes that are dif­fer­ent from, but also com­ple­men­tary to, the other 11 holes.”

Known as “The Open Doc­tor” for his ren­o­va­tion work on golf cour­ses pre­par­ing to host the U.S. Open, Jones fash­ioned Dan­zante Bay be­tween the breath­tak­ing Sierra de la Gi­ganta moun­tain range and the crys­tal-clear waters of the Sea of Cortez, find­ing a unique bal­ance for a chal­leng­ing course that is not overly long or gru­el­ing – and thor­oughly en­joy­able.

Now play­ing be­tween 4,916 and 7,237 yards from five sets of tees, Dan­zante Bay fea­tures wide fair­ways and greens that must be care­fully judged but are never un­fair. Most of the en­trances to the greens are open as well — 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.

Along with the chang­ing ter­rain come winds that can be dif­fer­ent day to day and dur­ing the day, con­di­tions that in­flu­ence shot value and strat­egy. That, says Jones, makes for a new chal­lenge at Dan­zante Bay ev­ery time.

“The golf course is a com­plete jour­ney that golfers will re­ally en­joy tak­ing again and again,” Jones said.

Perry be­lieves the new golf course has the po­ten­tial to po­si­tion Loreto as one of the best and most sought-af­ter va­ca­tion des­ti­na­tions in the world, while still main­tain­ing its serene and se­cluded en­vi­ron­ment.

“We are be­ing ex­tremely care­ful about the in­te­gra­tion of the real es­tate with the golf course,” Perry said. “That is why we gave Rees all the time nec­es­sary to build Dan­zante Bay. His only man­date was to get it right.”

Villa del Pal­mar Re­sort takes full ad­van­tage of the re­gion’s unique beauty, au­then­tic cul­ture, quiet beaches, scenic vis­tas, rich his­tory, and nat­u­ral habi­tats. The re­sort’s com­pli­men­tary shut­tle ser­vice en­ables guests to ex­plore his­toric Loreto and visit the 1697 mis­sion that made the town fa­mous. The area is also known for its wildlife, in­clud­ing the 900 species of fish in an area that has been de­clared a World Her­itage Site.

Guests can also ex­pe­ri­ence Villa del Pal­mar Beach Re­sort & Spa’s 4,447 acres of un­spoiled beauty. The re­sort boasts stretches of ex­quis­ite shore­line, stun­ning ocean and moun­tain views, three out­stand­ing restau­rants, five swim­ming pools, the 39,000-square­foot lux­u­ri­ous Sa­bila Spa, ten­nis courts, miles of hik­ing trails, glass-bot­tomed kayaks, and sport fish­ing.

Dan­zante Bay Golf Club and Villa del Pal­mar Re­sort at The Is­lands of Loreto are only a two-hour non-stop flight from Los Angeles In­ter­na­tional Air­port (LAX) on Alaska Air­lines. They also are ac­ces­si­ble with non-stop flights from Cal­gary, and from Ti­juana via Calafia Air­lines (three times a week year-round).
