The landscape of the CostaBaja site in La Paz excited me from the beginning. There is so much contrast in what we were able to create there with the green fairways against the desert conditions and the beautiful blue Sea of Cortez," said Gary Player. "It is a very strong layout set against such stunning visuals. I just love the different experiences golfers will have throughout their rounds."
Taking advantage of a spectacular veranda overlooking the Sea of Cortez, the Gary Player Signature Golf Course is imbedded seamlessly into CostaBaja's unique desert-by-the-sea landscape while, at the same time, complimenting the existing ecosystem and providing an enjoyable challenge for golfers of all levels. To meet the golfer's expectations of a quality experience, Troon Golf was selected to manage the course.
"We are thrilled to have a Gary Player Signature course that fits and belongs to the Baja California Sur," said CostaBaja CEO Alejandro Yberri III. "His commitment to excellence is reflected throughout the entire layout and we are anxious to welcome golfers from around the world."
Visiting golfers will also benefit from the luxurious comforts of the newly opened CostaBaja Resort and Spa, the first 5-star property in La Paz. The resort, managed by Grand Heritage Hotels, sits adjacent to the 250-slip double-basin marina and white sand beaches and features 115 rooms, the first spa in La Paz, two pools and two signature restaurants. Besides golf, other recreational pursuits available at CostaBaja include tennis, scuba diving, snorkeling, boating, kayaking and fishing in a region once described by Jacques Cousteau as "The Aquarium of the World."
To capture the full experience of CostaBaja over a longer period, the development offers a limited selection of real estate opportunities with a choice between the Las Colinas one- and two-story hillside homes set between the ninth and tenth holes of the Gary Player Signature Golf Course or the Vista Mar Residences and Villas set on a bluff, some with views of the Sea of Cortez. All homeowners receive social membership to the luxurious CostaBaja Beach Club on property. Prices start at $500,000 USD.
Situated on 550 acres of environmentally protected coastal lands, CostaBaja is a residential, master-planned resort community of contemporary yet modern homes, featuring panoramic water views and a resort lifestyle with exceptional amenities. Only five minutes from the charming seaside town of La Paz, CostaBaja's beachfront and hillside homes overlook the Sea of Cortez in Baja California Sur, Mexico.
CostaBaja opened the 18-hole, Gary Player Signature Golf Course on November 7 and CostaBaja Resort & Spa recently opened to rave reviews on November 1. In addition to world-class golf, the community offers access to exceptional outdoor activities including swimming, scuba diving, snorkeling, boating, kayaking and fishing. Additional amenities include the Costa Baja Beach Club, which serves as the community's social hub, as well as the state-of-the-art, 250-slip marina - considered to be the finest marina in Mexico. The lively Marina is also lined with fine restaurants, shops, galleries, and charter services. For more information, visit: http://www.costabaja.com
