New Sun Mountain Outerwear Combines Popular Features

MISSOULA, MT – New for 2021, Sun Mountain is introducing the Trapper Jacket which combines features of several of the company’s most popular styles. The lightweight shell offers 4-way stretch and is water-resistant and windproof. The insulation is the patented 37.5 technology. Together, these features make Trapper the ideal outerwear for golf on cool, blustery days.

The Trapper Jacket combines features of several of Sun Mountain’s most popular styles. The shell is made with Zamza Light, a lightweight, proprietary Japanese fabric with 4-way stretch that is also extremely water-resistant and windproof. The insulation in this puff jacket is 37.5, a patented technology that works to maintain an ideal core temperature, enabling wearer to perform better, longer.

The jacket features a zip-through collar with chin-guard, chest pocket, and zippered hand-warmer pockets.

37.5 insulation is a synthetic fiber known for its unique ability to absorb body heat and help transmit moisture out. This results in maintaining an ideal core temperature for athletic performance and comfort. 37.5 insulation keeps the body warm without overheating, allowing jackets featuring it to be worn longer and in a broader range of temperatures. 37.5 also resists odors and its insulating qualities never wash out or wear away.

Sun Mountain is also using 37.5 insulation in the Granite Jacket and Vest which feature a square, quilting pattern; and Colter Jacket and Vest and Women’s AT Hybrid Jacket and Vest featuring insulated core panels with 4-way stretch side panels.

Costa Palmas Golf Club Marks One-Year Anniversary

LOS CABOS, MEXICO – Costa Palmas Golf Club, the flagship amenity of a 1,000-acre beachfront resort community fronting the Sea of Cortes on the undiscovered East Cape, marks its one-year anniversary this month.

The golf club, which includes a six-hole, par-3 short course and a 30,000-square-foot putting green lit for night play, was designed to attract a broad range of golfers. Its centerpiece is a links-style course built by Robert Trent Jones, Jr. that’s accessible to community homeowners as well as guests of the Four Seasons Resort Los Cabos at Costa Palmas.

The multi-themed layout, with five sets of tees ranging from 7,221 to 4,590 yards (par 72), is a core golf course, with hotel and residential buildings spaced around its perimeter. The club’s new superintendent, Victor Zarate, has realized the designer’s vision for the facility by producing firm, fast playing conditions, especially on and around the greens.

Described by Robert Trent Jones, Jr. as “a golf symphony composed of three movements and two transitions,” the golf course occupies a rolling expanse of coastal desert that rises to nearly 40 meters above sea level. The first six holes, the layout’s “dunescape,” features prominent sand hills and greens with open, unguarded entrances, a links-style characteristic that encourages golfers to play bump ‘n run shots.

The par-5 seventh, crossed by an arroyo, serves as a transition to the course’s second movement—six “upland” holes that offer panoramic views of the Sierra de la Laguna Mountains. This parkland-style section, generously wide off the tee, is flanked by large-scale bunkers and groves of mesquite trees.

The layout’s dramatic finishing stretch provides glimpses of the estuary and azure-blue coves that make Costa Palmas a world-class sport-fishing destination. The 18th hole, a majestic left-to-right par 4, returns players to the sea and the resort community’s marina.

While the non-returning nines create a true golf “experience,” the flexible course design offers shorter loops that make a six- or seven-hole round of relaxed social golf possible.

The experience is further enhanced by Bouchie’s a casual café located beside the practice facility that welcomes novices, experts, families and friends. With its comfortable indoor and outdoor seating, Bouchie’s, serving everything from ice cream to hand-crafted cocktails, is a great place to relax and unwind.

Costa Palmas has partnered with Patronus Medical on a health and safety initiative for the resort community, including the golf course. The program has two guiding principles: prevent contamination from the outside through a comprehensive symptom and temperature check for all visitors prior to arrival; and reduce the possibility of community spread through strict PPE requirements, including reduction of traffic in common areas and enhanced sanitary measures. Program components include staff COVID-19 antibody screening and daily temperature checks; on-site medical doctor and access to a Patronus physician via telemedicine; social distancing; and heightened protocols for transportation, housekeeping, dining and more.
