Prestigious Golf Magazine Ranks Los Cabos Favorite as One of the World’s Top Hot Spots for Golfers


LOS CABOS, Mexico (June 30, 2009) - The Fiesta Americana Grand Los Cabos Golf & Spa Resort has driven its way up Golf Digest's scorecard, ranking ninth on the magazine's "50 Best International Golf Hotels Outside of the United States" listing.  Offering a close-to-home yet world-class, international golf vacation, the resort boasts two highly acclaimed and world-renowned golf courses.  The Ocean Course at Cabo del Sol, a Jack Nicklaus Signature Design, is ranked number one in Latin America and the Caribbean by Golf Digest magazine; 24th among the "Best 100 Courses Outside the United States," also by Golf Digest; and 88th in GOLF magazine's "Top 100 Courses in the World."  The Desert Course at Cabo del Sol, featuring panoramic ocean views from each of its artfully sculpted holes, has also been rated number five by Golf Digest among Mexico's ever-growing list of world-class golf facilities.  With an innovative hotel concept and undoubtedly the finest one-two punch of golf in the region, it should come as no surprise that the Fiesta Americana Grand Los Cabos Golf & Spa Resort has earned yet another distinction from the golf industry.
