The Eagle Has Landed: Discovering Meditation in Motion through Golf

The Golf Swing Heard 'Round My World'

On my 45th birthday, I decided to take a swing at golf, literally. Thinking it would be a piece of cake, I secretly booked a pro lesson to avoid making a fool of myself. Instead, I turned that driving range into my personal demolition derby. Clubs flew into the underbrush like misguided missiles, balls ricocheted off guardrails as if they had a personal vendetta against them, and my dignity? It checked out faster than a cat in a room full of rocking chairs. As the sun set on my field of destruction, my instructor found me on my knees—not in defeat, but cleaning up my mess and the day’s litter, because my mama didn’t raise a quitter.

Zen and the Art of Golf

Then, it happened. With one sweet swing, the ball sang off the club, soaring straight and true, like it was rocketing off to its fairy-tale ending. The sound of that perfect hit was like church bells for my soul, ringing in a newfound serenity. That was the moment I understood—golf wasn’t just about thwacking a ball; it was an art form. It was ballet with a club, meditation with a mission. There I was, the newly minted monk of the fairway, finding my zen one swing at a time.

A Birdie to Remember, and a Cart to Forget: How Golf Elevates & Humbles

Riding high on my victory from the day before, I strutted onto the course with my friends, dressed to the nines and swinging like a rusty gate. Despite my high-fashion facade, my game was more clown car than Cadillac. But then, against all odds, I birdied the eighth hole—a shot that felt like I’d just won the lottery without buying a ticket. Just as I was about to take a bow for my adoring fans, my golf cart, apparently jealous of my success, decided to take a nosedive towards the nearest water trap. Lesson learned: even when you’re soaring high, never forget to set the parking brake.

Reflections from the Fairway: How Golf Reflects Life

In just 24 hours, golf taught me more about life than decades of self-help books. It showed me people’s true colors—how they handle victory, react to defeat, and whether they respect the rules of the game, much like the rules of life. Golf isn’t just a sport; it’s a reflection of life, a teacher of great patience and humility. Every hole offers a fresh start, every shot a new challenge, and every golf cart an escape artist waiting for its moment.

Why Baja is a Golf Vacation Paradise

Discovering golf in Baja has been nothing short of transformative. Here’s why every swing here feels like a slice of heaven:

  • Semi-Private Golf Course: The fairways are nearly yours alone, letting you practice without pressure and play at your own pace. One day we spent two hours and only played 5 holes.

  • Amazing Quality & Value: Learn from top-notch professionals without breaking the bank. It will cost you 3-5 times more to learn and perfect your game in the States than it does to take lessons from Baja’s best coaches on achampionship course designed by reknowned architects Pete & Roy Dye.

  • Luxurious Amenities: Imagine being treated like a king with homemade guacamole brought to you as you practice on the driving range, margaritas delivered to you on hole 3, and having your clubs polished and arranged perfectly in your car while you watch the sunset from the 19th hole toasting to a fantastic day with fantastic friends. 

  • Play at YOUR Pace: Here in Mexico, we live in moments, not minutes—and that rings true on the course where you can take all the time you need to hit the perfect shot and if you don’t get the first time, adjust what you did wrong, take another, and truly learn how to be a better player.

A Promise to Keep Golf For The Golfers

As I've fallen in love with golf, I've been tempted to shout about Baja's golfing wonders from the rooftops. Yet, I must tread carefully; I’ve promised the local members I wouldn’t spoil their serene sanctuary by flooding it with tourists. So consider this an exclusive invitation: come discover why golf here is more than a game—it’s a moment-to-moment experience where we live not by minutes, but by moments.
