TPC Danzante Bay, the second-newest member of the PGA Tour’s TPC Network, now gives you more reason than ever to consider Loreto, Mexico, for your next luxury golf getaway.

Cutting through deep canyons, over the foothills of the Sierra de la Giganta Mountains and alongside captivating seaside cliffs, TPC Danzante Bay, an 18-hole desert-style golf course on Mexico’s Baja Peninsula, offers plenty of memorable views. “There are not many courses that can offer a setting as beautiful, diverse and dramatic,” says the course’s architect, Rees Jones, who has over 200 projects worldwide to his name.
Cart paths converge with hiking trails on this gorgeous yet rugged turf, giving even non-golfers breathtaking vistas, particularly at sunrise when the distant islands light up and the contrasting colors of the sea, grass and rocky landscape are magnified.
Capitalizing on this cliffside setting, the course’s precipitous signature 17th tee box offers an adrenaline-fueled shot toward a small and distant green, an opportunity so enthralling that both successful and failed attempts at the hole are rewarded.
Adding to its appeal, Danzante Bay is adjacent to the 188-suite Villa del Palmar at the Islands of Loreto, which is situated on a pristine Sea of Cortez perch that showcases the region’s crystal-clear waters that are dotted with islands. The private beachside resort includes a 39,000-square-foot spa, three restaurants, five swimming pools, infinite watersports options and, at night, an unbelievable ceiling of stars. tpcdanzantebay.com
