Each year Women’s Golf Journal produces a “special edition” travel issue dedicated to one golf destination, and this Fall we were thrilled to get away to Mexico. The growth of the game there has been phenomenal in recent years, with stunning new course openings and luxury resorts, like the new Andaz Mayakoba.
Accompanying the game’s growth has been the rise of Latinas in the game. Stars like Lorena Ochoa, and American-born pros like Lizette Salas, Gerina Piller (both of whom competed on this year’s winning U.S. Solheim Cup team) and Lee Lopez, who’s just getting started on tour, have been key. We speak to each of those ladies and to emerging young talent as well in our main feature. Beyond that, the rest of the issue stays in the spirit with pieces on mezcal vs tequila, a visit to a cooking school in Mexico, and a trip to Baja’s emerging wine country, among other pieces.
It’s not all about Mexico, though: Lauren Pero humorously checks in with a terrible, awful, horrible, no good, very bad round of golf and we enjoy a spa in Italy, a beautiful women-friendly course in Canada, a fresh and flexible meal in a Yoga Kitchen and some great golf tips from top pros in an issue that is all about moving forward.
With all of that set against the vibrancy of Mexico, it’s going to be a colorful autumn.
