Bajamar is known as "The Pebble Beach of Mexico". The 18 original holes at Bajamar, now Percy Clifford designed the Lagos and Vista nines, in 1976. In the early 1990s the course underwent a redesign, mostly to the tees and greens, and a new irrigation system was installed. The Oceano nine, designed by Robert Von Hagge, opened in June 1996.
Lagos nine: This is the lone par-35 layout, with three par-3 holes, two of them to greens guarded by water. Unless you're a long hitter, don't try the back gold tees at Bajamar; they add nearly 400 yards compared with the blues and result in a pair of par-4s that stretch 468 and 455 yards.
Vista nine: A traditional par-36 configuration, these nine holes, with fairways set in the middle of scrub, give a British Isles flavor to Baja mar. Water is a concern only on the approach to the par-5 second hole. The barranca areas off the regularly clipped part of the course are considered lateral hazards.
Oceano nine : This nine provides the feel of surfside golf in Hawaii , with the Pacific there to catch any slices on the fifth through eighth holes. The fun really starts at the fourth, where the approach on a relatively short par-4 is over a chasm to a wide but shallow green. The fifth is the lone par-3 on the side, with a tee shot over a cove from 169 (blue tees) or 183 (gold) yards out. The eighth, this nine's only par-5 has its tees set directly above the ocean with a fairway that bends to the right.
