‘Taste of the Top 100’ Package Pairs Quivira Golf Club and the Towers
Los Cabos - To honor its recent selection by Golf Digest as one of the “World’s 100 Greatest Golf Courses,” Quivira Los Cabos is offering a “Taste of the Top 100” package to celebrate the prestigious award. In addition to unlimited golf on a spectacular course that the magazine’s panelists praised for its sequence of “18 truly sterling golf holes,” the program includes 5 days/4 nights’ accommodations in a suite with a private pool at The Towers at Pacifica, a lavish “resort within a resort” known for its VIP amenities, including VIP Lounge and 24-hour butler service.
Quivira Golf Club, an epic Land’s End layout grafted by Jack Nicklaus onto a jaw-dropping site marked by huge dunes, sheer cliffs and desert foothills, offers more oceanfront exposure than any other course in Los Cabos. The multi-themed layout, opened in 2014, has captivated the attention of traveling golfers (and Golf Digest panelists) by combining breathtaking views with unforgettable challenges. Adjacent to the course is an open-air, thatched-roof clubhouse and a double-ended driving range and short game practice facility within earshot of the rolling surf. Four complimentary comfort stations keep golfers fortified and refreshed throughout the round.
As part of this new package, players are treated to a brief primer before the round by director of golf Antonio Reynante and his staff on how to play the course successfully. Topics include proper tee selection and risk-reward strategies for Quivira’s key holes.
Following the round, the “Taste of the Top 100” includes a culinary experience at Quivira Steakhouse, the delightful indoor / outdoor restaurant at the clubhouse. Led by Quivira’s culinary director, the custom menu features classic land-and-sea options, from signature fish tacos and ‘catch of the day’ specials to prime cuts of beef. A curated list of international wines is paired with the appetizers and entrees. Among the wines featured are selections from Mexico’s Guadalupe Valley, the nation’s finest wine-producing region.
The package also features a mixology session at The Market at Quivira. Attached to Pueblo Bonito Sunset Beach, this hall of gastronomy, inspired by modern food halls found in the U.S. and Europe, features an array of eclectic eateries designed to please every palate. In addition, The Market is anchored by a handsome bar in the center of the high-ceilinged, brick-vaulted hall. Master sommelier Antonio is on hand to introduce guests to Mexico’s two native spirits—tequila and mezcal—and create a unique cocktail in a special smoker that accentuates the taste and aroma of mezcal.
As a special VIP perk, the sommelier will also pair cordials with confections created by Mexico City-based celebrity chef Jose Ramon Castillo, the nation’s top chocolatier and the new director of La Chocolateria, The Market’s most exclusive shop. Castillo uses Mexican cacao in his chocolates and has incorporated exciting flavor profiles into his top-quality confections.
Golfers (and their guests) are invited to participate in the resort’s Hook & Cook program as part of the overall experience. Hosted by butlers from The Towers at Pacifica, guests surf cast into some of the world’s richest fishing waters. Even if there’s no action, the butlers ensure that fresh fish is always available for the resort’s signature mesa de ceviches using house-made emulsions and salsas. Sashimi is also popular. Special catches can be taken to Peninsula, the gourmet Baja cuisine restaurant at The Towers, for a cooked preparation.
The “Taste of the Top 100” package also includes two, one-hour Golfer’s Massages at Pacifica’s award-winning Armonia Spa. The treatment, designed to relieve tension and fatigue, also heals and stimulates sore muscles. The spa’s exclusive line of organic products is used in all body treatments.
Pricing for the “Taste of the Top 100” package starts at $3750 per person, double occupancy.
