Ken Jowdy has been in the golf course and resort development business for more than 20 years and has worked on projects throughout the United States and the Baja Peninsula. He has been personally involved in all aspects of resort, golf, and real estate development in Baja California, Mexico since 2002.
Ken is the CEO and Founder of Diamante Cabo San Lucas and its development management company Legacy Properties, LLC and is the visionary behind the Diamante master plan. He provides day-to-day oversight on all major project decisions and has put together a talented project team, which he personally leads in the master planning, permitting, construction, financing, sales, and operation of the resort.
Ken’s goal at Diamante is to create the very best possible experience for every owner, member, and guest by providing exceptional, personalized service and by making anyone that visits the resort feel that they are a member of the Diamante family.
The first phase of the Diamante project consists of the Davis Love III designed Dunes Course, which opened in 2009 to much critical acclaim. Golf Magazine rated the Dunes Course 58th in 2011, out of the Top 100 Courses in the World, and the Dunes has since improved in ranking to 36th in the World in 2017. The first phase also includes a 100,000 square foot clubhouse with 20 residential units, a 4,000 square foot, state-of-the-art health and fitness center, 66 Golf Villas, 78 Sunset Hill lots and 40 Beach Estate lots.
Phase II of the Diamante project is well underway and includes unique amenities such as a Tiger Woods-designed El Cardonal golf course, The Oasis Short Course, a 10-acre swimmable lagoon by Crystal Lagoon and a luxury spa. Phase II residential products include 22 casita homes, 11 cantina villas, more than 100 Lagoon residence club units and more than 30 Ocean Club Residence beach condominiums.
Future phases of the resort will include an additional championship golf course designed by Tiger Woods, a sports complex, village shopping center, beach front boutique hotel, and a mix of lots, condos, and villa residential units.
