El Cardonal at Diamante

Cabo San Lucas, Mexico


Diamante is a world-class golf destination in the bustling, ocean-side resort town of Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. TGR Design is thrilled to have added another distinctive 18-hole golf course to the property, Diamante’s second.

The design of El Cardonal was inspired by the classic Golden Age courses of the west coast that Tiger played growing up. Tiger created a golf course that brings back strategy—there are typically several options for navigating each hole, and proper strategic decision-making is rewarded.

The existing arroyos and native dunes that traverse the site, along with well-placed fairway bunkers, provide ample risk-reward opportunities off the tees. Natural, irregular contours on the fairways, along with high-faced, greenside bunkers, further enhance the course’s old-style look and feel.  

With dramatic long-range views of the Pacific Ocean, this championship course offers wide landing areas that provide different angles and options to approach the greens, while promoting playability for golfers of all skill levels. The result is a memorable and enjoyable golf experience, where golfers that can weigh risk and make sound decisions will have the best opportunities to score.

Challenging! But also good for a couple high-handicap players.
My buddies and I were excited to play Tiger’s first course and were really impressed.
We fell in love with the stunning panoramic views of the Pacific Ocean throughout the round—we’ll certainly be back!
