Ochoa Hills collaboration signs for first project in Mexico

The Ochoa Hills course design firm, formed last year in a collaboration between the Arthur Hills/Steve Forrest and Associates firm and Alejandro Ochoa, older brother of LPGA superstar Lorena Ochoa, has signed its first design contract.
The project will be Punta Lobos, a 54-hole golf course community development on 3,000 acres along the Pacific Ocean 40 miles north of Cabo San Lucas in Baja California.
The property is owned and being developed by the Santa Ana family, which has owned it since the mid-1800s. In addition to an eventual three 18-hole golf courses, the development will include residential real estate, boutique hotels and a marina. Groundbreaking is expected in 2010.

Alejandro Ochoa is a principal in the Ochoa Group, one of Mexico’s leading player representation, golf academy and event management firms. Ochoa, who has several solo course design projects on his resume, will work alongside the Hills/Forrest staff and principal on-site architect Brian Yoder.
