TPC Danzante Bay at Villa del Palmar at the Islands of Loreto has won a number of awards over the years, and with their continued commitment to excellence, they’ve been named Mexico’s Best Golf Course 2021 by the World Golf Awards. Throughout the country, the best golf courses in Mexico have lush grounds and scenic landscapes, and many Mexico golf resorts were developed by famous designers and architects, creating strong competition for this award. Whether you’re an avid golfer or you just want a new travel experience, playing through the TPC Danzante Bay course and exploring the city of Loreto, Mexico will give you an unbeatable experience.
This year marks the 8th annual World Golf Awards, a branch of the World Travel Awards, an organization that celebrates excellence within the industry. Their awards are based on a combination of votes from professionals, like travel agents, as well as everyday travelers, making them a trustworthy guide to everything from where to stay to what to do. Despite the challenges of the past year, they received a record number of votes from all over the world. The World Golf Awards have categories for everything from the best clubs to golf shoe brands. The awards for the best courses are broken down by region, and the best golf courses in Mexico include some of the most gorgeous greens in the world.
TPC Danzante Bay was designed by the legendary architect Rees Jones, and because the city of Loreto is smaller than other destinations, he had vast landscapes to inspire him. His designs take advantage of the natural undulations of the land, and as the course was being constructed, the team took great care to preserve and replant the flora that was removed. The first half of the course plays into the mountains behind Loreto before taking players back to the beach. Of all the best golf courses in Mexico, there’s nowhere more iconic than the 17th hole at TPC Danzante Bay, which is perched on top of a cliff overlooking the Sea of Cortez.
Playing TPC Danzante Bay is one of the best ways to experience the natural beauty of the Baja Peninsula and Loreto, Mexico. Unlike other cities in Mexico where golf courses are squeezed in between resorts and other buildings, the city of Loreto has plenty of wild landscapes, and it’s surrounded by the gently rolling Sierra de la Giganta Mountains. Because the city is on the inside of the Peninsula, it faces the Sea of Cortez and the Loreto National Marine Park. Filled with tropical fish, sea lions, dolphins, whales, and whale sharks, the Sea of Cortez has earned the nickname “The Aquarium of the World.” When you’re not on the golf course, you can explore it all while scuba diving, snorkeling, hiking, or ATVing.
The technical challenges and scenic landscapes of TPC Danzante Bay sets Villa del Palmar at the Islands of Loreto apart from other Mexico golf resorts. While being named Mexico’s Best Golf Course 2021 by the World Golf Awards is exciting, the true honor is creating incredible experiences that help athletes hone their skills.
