CABO SAN LUCAS, MEXICO: Shortly after World War II, a group of Southern Californians learned that they could fly to La Paz, Mexico, and then travel by rutty roads to the shores of the Sea of Cortes to world-class sports fishing, privacy, and weather “as good as God will allow.” It was exclusive, with the likes of Bing Crosby, Desi Arnaz, and The Duke as regular visitors.

When Los Cabos International Airport was expanded in 1986, the area’s lure immediately reached deep into the United States and Canada. Cabo San Lucas quickly established itself as the “go to” destination of choice for the affluent.

Old Lighthouse Golf & Ocean Club, developed by Ernesto Coppel and The Lyle Anderson Company, is Cabo’s newest luxury community perched 300 feet atop dramatic dunes within the Quivira Los Cabos Resort.

Where the Desert Meets the Sea

Old Lighthouse Club is situated where the Sea of Cortés meets the Pacific Ocean with a stunning Jack Nicklaus Signature golf course woven throughout the community. Inspiration for the community name comes from El Faro Viejo, the Old Lighthouse erected in 1905 that sits centrally within the gates of Old Lighthouse Club. It’s the region’s oldest standing structure overlooking miles of magnificent beaches.

“Our community offers residents a vibrant gathering spot,” expressed Taber Anderson, managing partner at Old Lighthouse Club. “I am pleased to report that we are deep in the design phase for a second Jack Nicklaus Signature course with permitting in progress. When complete, the private experience will have its own dedicated member clubhouse.”

Over his career, Taber’s resume includes the development of several high profile communities around the world, including Desert Mountain in Arizona, Las Campanas in New Mexico, and Loch Lomond Golf Club in Scotland. “I believe in a holistic approach to luxury living,” continued Taber. “We have researched the finest clubs in Cabo and plan to either match or beat their best-in-class amenities.

“This is a tall order considering our existing oceanfront Nicklaus course is often referred to as ‘Pebble Beach of Mexico.’ My goal is to create an uber-luxe culture that embraces multi-generational families with a casual, low-key vibe. From flip-flops to filet mignon, we have you covered,” detailed Taber. “Once complete, our additional Nicklaus course will have a very different look and feel. It will be more parkland and lush—also easily walkable, but still challenging and enjoyable for all skill levels. Special attention will be paid to our on-course comfort stations that Cabo is famous for. The days of a tuna sandwich at the turn are long gone. Our comfort stations will be so special, that I expect non-golfing residents, with no golf clubs in tow, will visit for sunset cocktails.”
