Mario Navarro Named Head Golf Professional at Rancho San Lucas Golf cLUB
Mario Navarro, a native of Juarez, Mexico who has worked at some of the finest golf facilities in Latin America, serves as the head golf pro at Rancho San Lucas Golf Club.
“I´m thrilled to be back in Cabo working at such a wonderful resort and residential development that provides so much to its owners and guests,” Navarro said. “The Greg Norman Signature course offers excellent playability and strategic nuances for all types of golfers.”
A fine competitive player, Navarro won several prestigious tournaments on the Mexican amateur circuit. As a professional, he has worked in golf operations for 18 years throughout Latin America, including in Los Cabos, Juárez and Guatemala. From 2004-07, he served as first assistant golf professional at Cabo del Sol, the landmark 36-hole complex. He also worked at Querencia, an exclusive private club in Los Cabos, as an assistant golf professional from 2007-12. He later served as Querencia’s director of golf for 2 ½ years.
Previously, Navarro worked at La Reunion Golf Resort in Guatemala, which hosted a PGA Tour Latinoamerica tournament for five years. A first-class instructor, he also was named the national golf coach for Guatemala.
“I´m happy to be working with director of golf Brad Wheatley to create a premier golf operation that will give our golfers a fun, challenging and memorable experience,” Navarro enthused. “The incredible dune-and-desert setting of the golf course will expose players to three different ecosystems. In addition, the handsome hacienda-style clubhouse will deliver a special taste of Mexican culture that’s unique to Baja California Sur.”
