    Rees Jones

Resort Overview

Rees Jones is better known as the Open Doctor than he is as a designer of remarkably dramatic seaside holes. But he achieved the latter at the 17th here, a par 3 that calls for a downhill tee shot to tiny clifftop green along the Sea of Cortez. The vistas are so sublime that the spot has become popular with early-morning hikers, who light out from the resort to take in the views. The rest of the course is plenty pulse-pounding, too, a mountains-meet-ocean routing with several fairways carved through canyons and greens backed by rock walls. Jones spent four years working on the project. Given the luxe trappings of this resort, where water is in play at multiple swimming pools, odds are you’re going to want to linger, too.



At TPC Danzante Bay, you’ll play through valleys, arroyos, dunes, and foothills.
