Diamante is home to one of the most spectacular golf course facilities in the world, hosting three world-class golf venues and featuring private hitting bays, indoor simulators, comfort stations, and much more.
The Dunes Course by Davis Love III is ranked 36th in Golf Magazine’s Top 100 Courses in the World in 2017 and is the #1 course in all of Mexico in Golf Digest in 2016. In 2012 the course was the host for the World Club Championship. The course is 18 holes and sits among some of the most dramatic sand dunes in the world. The Dunes course is known for the links style of golf course featuring rolling terrain and sand dunes throughout the 18 holes similar to the links style courses you find in Scotland—but with year round sunshine and warm weather.
The Dunes Clubhouse features three restaurants s with indoor and outdoor dining options, a golf pro shop and retail store, men’s and ladies locker rooms and a pool/Jacuzzi lounge.
El Cardonal opened in 2014 and was Tiger Woods’ first completed course design. The golf course is influenced by the old-style courses of Southern California that Tiger grew up playing on. Tiger created a course that brings back the need for strategy—providing players with several shot options to navigate during each hole. The El Cardonal training complex features a Nike-branded retail and pro shop, expansive practice range with panoramic ocean views, Tacos & Tortas bar/restaurant, and an indoor stretching and golf simulator facility for training.
The Oasis Short Course is the latest golf creation which opened in December 2016. Also designed by TGR Design and Tiger Woods, the course layout is extremely flexible and can be played as a 12-hole par three course of varying hole lengths or a three-hole loop with a par 3, 4 and 5, among other potential configurations. The Oasis Short Course features a palapa bar, practice green, event lawn, and a mile long perimeter concrete jogging and hiking trail. The course is ideal for families and beginners, but is also a fun practice course for experienced golfers.
