When we saw images of the spectacular Jack Nicklaus signature course at Quivira Golf Club, we decided we absolutely had to find out more. We decided to send pro golfers Fredrik Lindblom and Hannah Gregg on a rather appealing assignment: They went to check out the breathtaking course and the luxurious Pueblo Bonito Pacifica Golf & Spa Resort which is home to the track.
Hannah and Fredrik are professional golfers who have been travelling the world together since 2018, checking out amazing golf experiences in locations ranging from South Africa to Panama. They’re great players and great presenters too, making them the ideal duo to create a video for us on the course at Quivira.

“I’ve never seen any place that has three holes hanging out over the ocean like this golf course does. They are unbelievable,” Nicklaus said. “This is a diverse golf course with inland settings—it’s got desert, it’s got ocean, it’s got rocks; it has a little bit of everything. It’s not a hard golf course; it is very user-friendly. It may look difficult because of where it is, but the course is very playable.”
With significant elevation changes and sweeping fairways through rolling desert and along the cliffs, Quivira is a true golfing…
