Los Cabos, Mexico (PRWEB) October 7, 2007
Marquis Los Cabos Beach, Golf, Spa & Casitas Resort played the luxurious host to # 1 LPGA golfer Lorena Ochoa during the 1st Annual Aeromexico Golf Tournament recently held in Los Cabos, Mexico. The event brought more than 100 golfers to the region. Ochoa joins the extensive list of sports and celebrity personalities who have stayed at Marquis Los Cabos, named as a 2007 World's Best Awards hotel by Travel + Leisure. According to Ochoa, Los Cabos is one of the most beautiful paradises in the world to play golf, and Marquis Los Cabos is conveniently located near two of the region's most distinguished courses, Cabo del Sol and Cabo Real. Marquis Los Cabos has a full service golf desk and includes reserved tee times at Cabo del Sol and Cabo Real, as well as swing video analysis and private lessons. Golf tournaments and contests can be arranged for guests and friends.
In April 2007, Ochoa became the World's # 1 ranked ladies golfer and the first Mexican golfer of either gender to be ranked # 1 in the world. In August 2007, Ochoa won her first major championship at the Women's British Open, followed by two more LPGA events making her the first to win three consecutive events since Annika Sorenstam in 2005. She also has been honored with the prestigious titles of 2006 Associated Press Female Athlete of the Year and Mexico's National Sports Prize on two separate occasions.
Marquis Los Cabos is just 10 minutes from the 18-hole Cabo del Sol Ocean Course, designed by Jack Nicklaus and host to the Aeromexico Golf Tournament. The course spans 1.5 miles of oceanfront along the Sea of Cortes with plenty of arroyos, sand traps and other obstacles make play very interesting. Considered by some to be the most challenging in the area, Golf Magazine named Cabo del Sol on its list of the "Top 100 Courses In The World." Pacific Golf Magazine has called it the "Mexican version of Pebble Beach." The finishing hole, guarded by desert and sea is modeled after the eighteenth at Pebble Beach. Cabo del Sol Ocean Course has hosted many celebrities like Bill Gates, Tiger Woods and Hollywood personalities.
The resort is just a two minute drive from the 18-hole Cabo Real Golf Club designed by Robert Trent Jones II. The site of the 1999 PGA Senior Slam Tournament, it's designed to challenge the low handicapper, yet with multiple tees, is fun for players of any level. The first six holes are in mountainous terrain, with hills and valleys stretching into the surrounding Sierras; others are nestled near the beach. An inspiring view awaits you from each of them. The most spectacular view of the course is from the fifteenth tee, directly on the beach, and plays near the surf. With superb ocean views from every hole, this is yet another course that pleases the senses while offering a golfing challenge.
Off the links, golfers can stay in luxurious suites or one-bedroom Casitas with ocean-view balconies, Bulgari amenities, imported Frette linens, hydro-massage bathtubs and some with plunge pools.
