Independent Tests Prove Exotics Unbeatable.

Batavia, IL (February 17, 2015) – An independent robot club test performed at Golf Laboratories, Inc. in San Diego, California, confirms that the Exotics E8 Beta fairway wood is truly the longest fairway wood in golf. The E8 Beta was tested against the newest fairway woods on the market and the results continue to support ‘Exotics legendary distance’ reputation and distinguish the technology as the best in the market place.

“The E8 Beta fairway wood dominated this test,” stated David Glod, president and founder of Tour Edge Golf.  “The advanced Beta Titanium cup face is the leading factor in its success.  Titanium is stronger than other materials which allows us to make it thinner for more spring like effect and faster ball speeds, equaling more distance.  Our cup face technology combined with combo brazing is our perfect recipe for maximum distance and performance.

GOLF INC. NAMES QUIVIRA THE 2014 DEVELOPMENT OF THE YEAR

LOS CABOS, Mexico (Feb. 11, 2015) – Quivira (pronounced key-vee-ra), the exclusive 1,850-acre development at the tip of Baja California Sur in Los Cabos, has garnered another prestigious award. Golf Inc., a revered golf industry publication, has cited Quivira as the “2014 Development of the Year,” honoring the $40-million Jack Nicklaus-designed layout and community with a first place award as the world’s finest golf facility opened last year.

Quivira, with more than three miles of pristine golden beaches, picturesque desert cliffs and panoramic ocean views, is already considered Mexico’s premier luxury residential resort community. This master-planned community occupies a spectacular natural landscape and encompasses the Pueblo Bonito Pacifica Golf & Spa Resort, the Pueblo Bonito Sunset Beach Golf & Spa Resort, the Montecristo Luxury Villas and the high-end real estate communities of Copala and Novaispania Residences. The centerpiece of the development is the Quivira Golf Club, a Jack Nicklaus Signature golf course, complemented by an exclusive oceanfront clubhouse.

According to the report, published in the January/February 2015 issue of Golf Inc., “Jack Nicklaus designed Quivira with the elements in mind. All 18 holes have ocean views, with seven holes playing toward, away from or along the ocean. The sand dunes of the rolling desert foothills and gusts of wind from the Pacific Ocean are natural hazards. And the vivid colors and contours of the granite cliffs should challenge and awe golfers.”

Significantly, Golf Inc. made the first change in 12 years to its evaluation process, adding economic and environmental sustainability as criteria. According to the publication, “project vision accounted for 40 percent of the judging, course routing was 15 percent, aesthetics were 25 percent, and environmental and economic sustainability were 20 percent.” The diversity of criteria, coupled with stiff international competition, make Quivira’s award all the more momentous.

Quivira genuinely impressed Golf Inc.’s judges. “An audacious project with lofty goals that seems to have been beautifully realized,” commented David Southworth of Southworth Development. “The routing goes to lengths (literally) to make the most of its oceanfront setting.”

According to Nicklaus, “We designed it (Quivira) in such a way that allowed the elements to be a part of what’s going on and freely adjust with the course over time.” Nicklaus, who worked with the natural landscape of the property, kept the residential development’s land plan fully intact. The golf course, like the development itself, has received overwhelmingly positive reviews since its debut in December, 2014.

Nicklaus said Quivira’s windswept, ever-changing property posed design difficulties “but ultimately led to an award-winning course” at a spectacular residential development ranked among the best in Latin America.
The Quivira Development was also recently named as the “Best for Living Abroad” in LINKS Magazine’s 2015 Special Edition for Real Estate. The real estate in Quivira currently encompasses Copala luxury homes and condominiums and the Novaispania residences.

Copala is a full-time home and condominium community in the heart of the Quivira Los Cabos. The ocean view master-planned development will showcase beautifully designed homes and luxurious one-, two- and three-bedroom condominiums.  The first condominium building will be ready in June 2015.

Novaispania’s 44 luxury fractional ownership residences are situated on approximately one-third acre lots and offer brilliant views of the blue waters of the Sea of Cortes as it merges with the Pacific Ocean. The residences are a little paradise unto their own, with charming streetscapes accented by walking paths that lead to beautiful gardens, waterfalls and quiet sitting areas.

Quivira Los Cabos is located only five minutes from downtown Cabo San Lucas on the southernmost tip of the Baja Peninsula in the Mexican state of Baja California Sur.
