A private, world-class golf and beach club
El Dorado Golf and Beach Club
Equidistant between bustling Cabo San Lucas and the quieter San José Del Cabo, the private El Dorado Golf and Beach Club has been members-only since Discovery Land Company took it over in 2005. The exquisite Jack Nicklaus layout is highlighted by the Par 3 16th, whose green sits practically on the beach. There are 520 beachfront, ocean view, and desert acres here with custom homes (including one 8,500-square-foot domicile that recently sold for $20 million), designed by a team of world-class architects, and casitas, including an 11,238-square-foot penthouse. Twelve villas are currently available, while eight casitas are on offer from $2.295m to $9.9m. The master plan calls for approximately 206 residential units, including 39 beachfront and 25 ocean-view custom estate lots; 90 beachfront, golf, and ocean view villas; and 37 casitas. Besides the exquisitely-designed and furnished residences, the top-drawer golf course, and one of the Cabo coast’s finest beaches, El Dorado is well known for its concierge service which has a knack for remembering member preferences and providing highly personalized attention. The Outdoor Pursuits team is similarly able to provide tailored activities and experiences for members including use of El Discovery, a 96-foot yacht with space to entertain 30 people, kayaking, surfing, mountain-biking, ATV Tours and rock-climbing. A beach club; park with full-size basketball court, two tennis courts, children’s playground, and event lawn; fine-dining restaurant; beachfront bar under a huge palapa; spa; 12-seat theater; intimate Mercado (market) selling authentic Mexican delicacies and treasures; and a kids club make up an impressive array of amenities for members. The club is a private non-equity membership operation, limited to 395 memberships, the initiation for which requires a separate fee.
