Uniting_Nations_Cup_2013 -  (99)

Did anyone catch the full moon last night? Spectacular! Along with a majestic moon, early week winds have died down and things are heating up, especially for local golf courses! The Peninsula course at Mayan Palace will be welcoming the 4th edition of the Uniting Nations Cup with amateur golfers from Mexico and the U.S. vying for a team championship, while we hear some folks from Cholla are holding a fun tournament of sorts at The Links, and in Cholla Bay the low tides once again reveal the sea bed “greens” for JJ’s One Club Open. Out at Laguna del Mar, they also offer an immaculate 9-hole course. FORE!  Plus, next week, The Links at Las Palomas will be celebrating its 8th Anniversary with its popular annual golf tournament.

Let’s rundown the weekend and see what else is in store for Puerto Peñasco in coming months (we’re updating the calendar all the time, so be sure to check back)!
