Serena Norte Website



The land set aside for the Serena Norte Golf Club consists of big, bold sand dunes, and isolated pockets in between.  The saltwater breezes coming from the direction of the Pacific Ocean Coast, which is the properties western boundary, have formed the striking dunes.  The course began construction in the summer of 2000 and opened in late 2001.  There are also plans for an exclusive ocean-side community and resort hotels.  Using our land-based design techniques, the course was laid out during several days spent walking the land.    

The course routing takes advantage of the magnificent views of the ocean, and of a mighty, rock ridge that protrudes into the ocean.  This ridge is the backdrop to the 9th green depicted in the accompanying picture.  Off to the right of the 9th green depicted in the picture is the area where the 18th hole finishes, alongside the ocean.  Like many holes at Serena Norte, the par 4, 18th  offers many avenues to choose from when playing the tee shot.  The most challenging requires a long tee shot carry over dunes near the ocean.  The angle left into the green is the easiest, and gives open access to all the pin areas.  Upon leaving the 18th green, the players will take a couple more looks back at where they have been, and realize they have just had one of the supreme golfing adventures in the entire world.
