Great course. I would love to be a member if it was a private club. It is just as beautiful as most of the courses in Hawaii. It is in excellent condition and is very challenging with out being too hard. I live in Carlsbad and would play here more often if it wasn't so pricey.

It was in amazing condition. Many sets of tees for all skill levels. The staff were so friendly and helpful. Easily the best floral and gardening I have seen on any course. They host the LPGA Kia classic, and I can see why. Very fun course to play.

I recently had the privilege of playing this course...in a group of 16 golfers. Unanimously we found this course to be one of the most beautiful courses we have ever played. As importantly it was a demanding but not punishing course layout. I have been fortunate to play some of the best courses in the world and can say that... More

The staff could not be more welcoming or helpful. They are top notch. The course is beautiful, with nice elevation changes and striking scenery. It seemed that it used to have a bit more colorful flowers/bushes and that the fairways used to be a bit more lush, but in the main, it's still a striking and beautiful course. It is... More

the Ranaculus at the flower fields at absolutely magnificent. You'll enjoy the tour of the fields and the wonderful strawberry shortcakes they make. And of course, you can buy what ever color of flower your heart desires.

This course near Carlsbad California is one of the nicest I have ever played. The use of natural vegetation is spectacular. I couldn't say which hole would be the signature there were so many beautiful holes. Stunning vistas and great elevation changes throughout the course. Carts are a must!

I've played hundreds of golf courses throughout the US and I would have to say that Arnold Palmer did an amazing job on the golf course. The views and landscaping is spectacular and the golf course was in great condition with lots of rolling hill fairways.
