The whole La Costa Resort is world famous and worth a visit. Rooms - tennis - spa - golf it has it all. The pros have held many tourneys here. The golf course as expected is very well maintained etc. However I've played there several times now and am not a big fan of the layout.

The greens were in really good shape for having a full on summer drought. Played the North (Champions) course and found it quite playable. Divots in the fairways were filled, ball marks on the greens were repaired and no aeration yet even though many local courses have this being done at this time. Course amenities include a nice driving, chipping... More

We played the South Course or now called "Legends" and it was in great shape. The greens were in well groomed & fast, fairways cut, rough was, well rough. Pace of play was good although it did slow up by hole 15-16 for no apparent reason. The North (Champions Course) and the South alternate days they're available for play based... More

Family stay in Carlsbad with two small children. The pools are fantastic especially for kids 12 and under. The breakfast buffet was great too. There is a video game room and kids club. Parking is a hike. Over all good stay, I would recommend it.

I really enjoyed playing this golf course. It was challenging to play (we played The Legends course) but since we did a scramble format, the level of difficulty was somewhat mitigated. The people who were working the course were polite and very helpful. The only item which kept this from being a 5-star review was we all thought that the... More

I recommend the Stay and Play Package. You get 2 rounds of golf which normally costs $190, breakfast valued at $60, and drinks and Apps valued at $60. Great deal for the golf enthusiasts. The Legends course is a fun layout with fast fairways and solid greens which make me miss Cali already.

Played here as a guest on a business trip. I have always heard about this course and the North Course has some Tiger Woods history. While the staff was great and they even made a vegan box lunch, the course was so-so. The layout of the course was fair so a true test of golf, but the greens had been... More

The Champions Course was hailed as the new redone LaCosta of the past. Unfortunately, it is way overpriced. At approx. $225, you would expect a pristine course. I played on much better municipal greens. Between the slowness of the greens and abundance of divits, the experience was irritating. The staff was pleasant enough but this is definitely a public course.... More

We choose la costa thought our friends advised us the hilton la jolla. So, from our experience if you are looking to do the usual attraction in San Diego like sea world, the zoo, the old town and enjoy la jolla by evening, then la costa is not the place as there is half hour drive to each location. If... More
