Home to two Jack Nicklaus Signature Championship Golf Courses – Pacifico, featuring the world’s only natural island hole, and Bahia, an 18-hole championship course, Punta Mita is any golfer paradise.
Since its opening, 20 years ago, outstanding professional golfers have played our courses, and they keep coming back, they find our greens equally challenging and delightful to play, the extraordinary ocean views featured in many of the golf holes make Punta Mita courses extra special.
Today, Punta Mita proudly announces the sponsorship of one of these golf pros that love spending time in our destination, enhancing its commitment to professional golf by supporting one of Mexico’s most exciting young players: Mexican LPGA golfer Gaby Lopez.
With two wins on the LPGA Tournament and holding a current ranking of 26th in the world, Lopez’s sponsorship at Punta Mita includes brand presence on her hand-painted golf bag. Specially created by master craftsmen in the community of San Martín Tilcajete, Oaxaca, the bag captures the colors and artistic expression of Mexico using indigenous Zapotec symbols in the design. The sides of the bag have blue, orange, and yellow details referencing Zapotec diamonds which continue to the front of the bag containing bright red, pink, and turquoise colors. Lopez has a history of supporting local artisan communities and is excited to continue her support for Mexican culture. She will proudly wear the colors of Mexico every time walks on and off the field.
The sponsorship also includes VIP Access for Club Punta Mita Members at LPGA Tournaments Lopez plays in. As an additional part of the new collaboration, Lopez will play host at Punta Mita signature annual golf events such as Gourmet & Golf and Tail of the Whale Member Guest Tournament.
Gaby began playing on the LPGA Tour in 2016 and won her first LPGA Tour event in 2018 at the Blue Bay LPGA, becoming only the second Mexican to win on the LPGA Tour. She played college golf at the University of Arkansas where she won three events and was individual runner-up at the 2015 NCAA Division I Championship.
“I am so excited to enter into this sponsorship with Punta Mita and its world class courses, golf academy and amenities,” said the 26-year-old Gaby Lopez. “I grew up learning how to play golf in Mexico and to have a golf destination such as Punta Mita as a partner is an honor as without doubt it is one of the Americas leading luxury golf destinations.”
Set on 380 acres of peninsula bordered by both the Pacific Ocean and beautiful Banderas Bay, the private Punta Mita Golf Club is open exclusively to Club Punta Mita Members and their guests, and guests of the Four Seasons and St. Regis resorts. Golf lovers find in this secluded destination a perfect getaway thanks to the amazing amenities offered by our community such the fabulous beach clubs, delicious dining options, relaxing spas, and of course, the beautiful white sandy beaches, all of them available to be enjoyed in between rounds. No wonder why so many golf pros and golf fans have made of Punta Mita their favorite escape.
