Punta Mita’s signature hole, The Tail of the Whale.
Punta Mita on the Pacific Coast is home to a luxe megaresort, where the Four Seasons and St. Regis hotels split space along two Jack Nicklaus-designed courses. Both hotels are committed to promoting Mexico’s top wines (especially the standouts from the Baja Peninsula), and have stocked their cellars with some of the country’s best bottles. The resort hosts the four-day Gourmet & Golf tournament every April as way to showcase not just the links, but Mexico’s rising-star chefs and top wine producers.
