Nicklaus resort planned for Los Cabos

Quivira Los Cabos has announced an agreement to
undertake a joint comprehensive business relationship with Jack Nicklaus
designed to bring the only Nicklaus-branded oceanfront community to Los
Cabos, Mexico—one that will include two Signature Golf Courses and a
Jack Nicklaus Golf Club.“We are pleased to welcome Jack Nicklaus and his companies to the
Quivira family,” said Quivira’s developer Ernesto Coppel. “This
first-of-its-kind development and marketing collaboration will enhance
Quivira’s position as one of the most sought-after luxury communities in
Mexico and North America, offering a unique lifestyle and unprecedented
golf experience in Cabo.”

  Nicklaus also looks forward to the relationship. “I am eager to partner
with Ernesto Coppel, who is known for bringing a high level of quality to
world-class resort destinations,” Nicklaus said. “Quivira is a piece of
property that is unique on to itself—it is just a very special place.”

  The approximately 200 homes in the Nicklaus project will sit oceanfront
within Quivira, right at the tip of the Baja Peninsula. Residents will
enjoy an extraordinary blend of elegance and comfort in a gorgeous natural
setting with breathtaking views, complemented by five-star service.

  The two Jack Nicklaus Signature Courses within Quivira will offer
championship play featuring more oceanfront holes than any other
development on the Baja Peninsula. The courses, one private and one resort,
are scheduled to break ground in early 2009—with the first set to open
for play in early 2010.

  Nicklaus is known for designing golf courses and communities that
harmonize with each location’s surroundings. He strives to work with raw
land that he can utilize and enhance without taking away its character and


  “With its outstanding natural terrain and fantastic location in Los
Cabos, Quivira has all the elements to create a powerful blend of memorable
golf experiences within a luxury community,” said Nicklaus. “I think the
golf courses will be spectacular. The piece of ground is great, the ocean
and the sand dunes good.”

  Quivira will also be home to a Jack Nicklaus Golf Club—one of only
25 worldwide. The Jack Nicklaus Golf Club was created as an exclusive
branding program to identify and recognize a limited number of elite Jack
Nicklaus Signature Golf Courses located in ideal markets around the world.
The program also includes an inter-club access and reciprocity program
available to no more than 35 Associate Members designated by each
participating club.
