Discover your dream home in a fantastic golf community: The Nick Fong PODCAST

In today’s episode of The Nick Fong PODCAST, Nick Fong, the broker and founder of Ronival Real Estate presents golf in Cabo.  Ronival is the number-one brokerage in all of Baja California Sur.  And since golfing is of the most pursued activities in the region for its championship golf courses, it’s quite important to talk about the caliber of golfing in the region!

John Padgett joins Nick today to present Golf and Real Estate.  John, one of Ronival Real Estate’s top agents, knows golf in Cabo very well and he knows the best places to live in golf communities.  Therefore, watch the video and read on to enlighten yourself about where to golf and what places to purchase real estate in Cabo.

John Padgett’s real estate story

Born in South Carolina, John Padgett started his real estate career in the year 2000, there first.  During his time in medical school, John’s mom convinced him to get his license in real estate.  For two years, he sold real estate there until his friend talked him into checking out real estate sales in Mexico.  There, he first visited Mazatlan.  After arriving there he learned about Cabo.  Quickly, he flew there to see it for himself.

Immediately after landing in Cabo back in 2002, John got a job selling condos at a Cabo resort.  Therefore, he rented an apartment there and the rest was history.  Quickly, he went back to South Carolina to place his belongings in storage only to return to Cabo to start his new real estate career.  He was quite attracted to the idea of  selling “destination” real estate.  He considered that to be the best concept, as he mentions during his interview with Nick Fong.

Once he’d been selling resort condos in Cabo for seven years, John transitioned into selling fractional real estate in golf-course communities.  That’s where he came from  in South Carolina as he says to Nick in the video.  He sold golf community real estate there and loved that aspect of it.  As he tells Nick, now he’s been able to get back to that – these are his roots in selling real estate.

Famous golf courses in Cabo

If you haven’t considered Los Cabos for your next golf destination, you will, after you uncover the breath-taking Cabo golf courses at Land’s End.  And, these five amazing courses provide the best in panoramic views, luxury real-estate options, and exquisite course layout.

Nicklaus-Two Course at Puerto Los Cabos

This par-36 Jack Nicklaus signature course recently opened in April of 2018.  It’s similar to the Nicklaus-One course design style.  Also covering a dramatic elevation change, holes six through nine  ascend to higher ground after the first holes work their way down to the Sea of Cortez.  And, this course showcases the most spectacular views found on Puerto Los Cabos.

El Cardonal at Diamante Cabo

This Tiger Woods-designed 18-hole El Cardonal course is the second championship golf course created at Diamante Cabo,.  And, this is Tiger Wood’s first-ever design.  He made this course long enough to challenge experts, yet open enough to provide good options for amateurs and beginners.  Also, as mentioned earlier, this Cabo golf course restores the need for golf strategy by providing good shot options at each hole.  So, it’s really an exiting test for golfers of any skill level.

Diamante Cabo’s Dunes Course

This magnificent 18-hole Cabo golf course weaves through undulating Pacific sand dunes and provides panoramic ocean views from almost every hole.  Then, there’s an excellent 14-acre practice facility, clubhouse restaurants and bars, retail center, on-course comfort stations at every third hole, and the signature service of Diamante Cabo.  Also, Dunes Course shares some similarities with the classic links-style courses in Scotland.  But, the weather in Cabo San Lucas is warmer, the sand is whiter, and the sea is a deeper blue.

Cabo golf at Quivira

The layout of this Jack Nicklaus Signature Cabo golf course starts on the beach, only 30 feet above sea level.  Then, it climbs to higher ground where your inspiration will grow as the breath-taking views increase.  Along the way, you’ll see a wonderful diversity from cactus and arroyos to dunes and cliffs.  There’s nothing like it!

Cabo del Sol Ocean Course

Designed by Jack Nicklaus, the 18-hole Cabo del Sol Ocean Course has been captivating world-class golfers since its opening in 1994.  This golf course stretches over a mile along the rugged coastline of the Sea of Cortez.  You’ll find seven holes perched right above the sea.  Then, as you wrap-up your game, play “the three finest finishing holes in all of golf,” according to Nicklaus.  And, the signature hole is at the 17th, a par-3 nestled among bunches of cacti, large boulders and a menacing cove.

According to the January, 2018 issue of Golf Digest, the Cabo del Sol Par-72 Ocean Course “Placed 70 in Golf Magazine’s list of World 100 Greatest Golf Courses.”  Globally, few public golf courses are held in higher regard.
