Update: Baja Country Club


There is notjing in this world like going to a top notch golf course and take your time and play 18 or for that matter 36 holes and never have anyone in front or behind you. If living in Ensenada, as long as I have, has at least one good thing, this is it. The course is VERY nice and because there are soo many people buying lots and homes they are turning the profits directly into the course and club house. Green fees are still very reasonable. This sounds like a sales pitch but really I want all nomads who play to come down and enjoy a relaxing day here. It sure takes the stress level down. There is nothing worse than to play a nice course and be pushed from behind or having the group in front play slow and not let you pass. I played Pebble a few years ago and was very excited to play on such a world famous track but I was very dissapointed when the group behind kept hitting balls into our group and we had to play slow because the group in front was taking their time. I finally hit one of the balls into the water from the group behind and just because they were members a big brew ha ha took place. The marshall wanted to kick me off but I was'nt leaving in fact when we got to 18 the police were there. After we expained what had happened they talked to the started and the club bought dinner and drinks plus the green fees the next day were on them. From what I understand this guy who came within inches of hitting me has done this several times and he was suspended because of this infraction from the club. I even played better the next day.

If any of you want to play --- please u2u me and Ill tag along. Im always lookin for someone to play with.............................

Lips, try hitting the ball back at them the next time. :mad:

I've played the BCC course many times with friends from Punta Estero. On one memorable occasion we had the course (and the drink cart) completely to ourselves, so we decided to test whether you can actually hit the ball from a running start, a la Happy Gilmore. Works off the tee pretty well, but not off the grass.

Ah yes---The Happy Gilmore swing. Try it after a few beers. You fall on your ass. I forgot to mention the homes there. I played yesterday and met some of the people that built homes on the course and they are nice........The homes and the people.The prices are excellent and security is great.

I know alot of people want to live at the beach but this is really nice!

Go check them out.

Actually, the Happy Gilmore swing only works after a few adult beverages. Gotta be loose. Problem is, those beverages make my bad putting even worse.

Howdy....August 21 and 22 we were at the BCC checking on the progress of our house. The construction is going well and there are several families now in residence. The course is also looking great. All green, and trimmed up nicely. The course was getting a lot of play on Saturday....hope to see some of you Nomads there soon!!!

BG, do they let kids play? Years ago I just drove them around in the cart, but they've had some lessons and want to play now (they won't be any good, but I'll let everybody play through). They are 9 and 11.

Not sure, Dan-O...I know Lizard Lips brings his son out and he is 13, I think. You could check with Jose Luis Vasquez....he is the honcho that runs the place...tell him you know a homeowner......hahaha......I do know that the rates are cheap and you don't need a cart on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday
PS:....if you go out, check on my place...it's lot #337

Probably has something to do with the fact that it's got a gravel pit on one side and many square miles of farmland on the other. :biggrin:

Movinguy...we looked for several years....this place has it for us. Dan-O is right...there won't be too many neighbors and developments crowding you out. Looking forward to some fresh veggies from the local farmers. Only scheduled for a total build-out of 350 homes. Jose is great to work with, and the company is the same one who operates the Marena development in Rosarito. check out the BCC site that was posted above. a 3 bdrm/2 & 1/2 bath, 2 car garage...about 1700 sq ft for $149k

gated, guards, ID check, sign in at gate....plenty of employees around. I think that this is far enough off the beaten track to be passed by.

LizardLips, Bajaguy (or anyone who knows) do they offer lessons at Baja Country Club? Nothing on the website.

I am glad to see they have been putting a few bucks into the course. I was there about 3 months ago and it needed a little work you are correct though, you can't beat a wide open golf course. Played Bajamar last Tuesday and ran into a tourney. The bad part was the Ocean 9 was wide open, but we had to wait on the Vista 9... Lips, will let you know next time I am in the area, so we can tee it up..
