The Towers at Pacifica program offers a plethora of land and sea adventures

LOS CABOS, MEXICO – Created as an exclusive amenity for owners and guests of Quivira Los Cabos and Pueblo Bonito Oceanfront Resorts and Spas, the award-winning Quivira Golf Club is anchored by a Jack Nicklaus Signature Design course, built on one of the most stunning settings in the world: the tip of the Baja Peninsula.

Its world-class layout offers dazzling views and breathtaking drops from tee to fairway. In a destination revered for its unique ocean-desert-mountain setting, Quivira offers more oceanfront exposure than any other course in Los Cabos, with panoramic views of the Pacific Ocean from every hole.

Ever since Jacques Cousteau described Cabo San Lucas as “the aquarium of the world” in the 1960s, nature lovers have flocked here to experience its unique mountain-desert-ocean environment.

To showcase the region’s natural assets, The Towers at Pacifica, the deluxe “resort within a resort” with 24-hour butler service, has introduced a “Back to Nature” package for the winter season that features an array of outdoor-oriented activities.

Pueblo Bonito’s exclusive four-night, five-day ‘Back to Nature’ package, available from Dec. 15, 2017 through March 30, 2018.

Golf Pride Unveils Plans for New Purpose-Built Facility at Pinehurst Resort to Accelerate Product Innovation and Drive Global Operations

SOUTHERN PINES, N.C. – Eaton announced today that its Golf Pride Grips Division plans to develop an exciting new purpose-built facility in Pinehurst, N.C. – America’s Home of Golf. The new facility will create a unique space to accelerate new product development and manage the global fulfillment of product around the world. Located within the gates of No. 8, the new facility will give Golf Pride a great platform to test new product ideas with a steady stream of golfers visiting Pinehurst Resort from around the world. In addition to its global management and professional teams, the site will include an R&D lab with rapid prototyping capabilities, as well as a new consumer grip fitting studio. Golf Pride plans to move to this new facility in early 2019.

With this new facility, the brand believes it will enable it to be the grip of choice for decades of golfers to come. The new facility will put the grip fitting experience front and center to reinforce Golf Pride’s connection with golfers in product development. This exclusive grip fitting studio will replicate the services available to professional golfers on Tour. It will be an appointment-only experience that offers an “inside the ropes” personalized concierge-quality service that all avid golfers will want to enjoy. Golf Pride also plans to use the fitting studio to test new product concepts and expedite the process of translating consumer insight into new products that provide golfers the confidence to play their best golf.

In designing the new building, Golf Pride felt strongly that it needed to respect the heritage and tradition of the Pinehurst area, while also creating a space that features Golf Pride’s innovation efforts that have been instrumental in it becoming one of the top brands in golf. This new facility will leverage the latest in work space design to help Golf Pride employees do their best work and to encourage even better cross-functional collaboration.

The development process will start with Pinehurst Resort making a proposal to the Village of Pinehurst to rezone the land. If that proposal is approved, The Kuester Companies, who is signing a build-to-suit lease with Golf Pride, will submit a permit application with the goal of breaking ground as early as December 2017. Golf Pride plans to move into the new facility in early 2019.

Eaton’s Golf Pride Grips Division is the world’s largest manufacturer of golf grips, with manufacturing, sales and distribution facilities on six continents.
