Golf Advisor: Top 25 Off-course amenities in the U.S.
At long last
While I have played Torrey Pines and Aviara, I had never played La Costa until now. Mostly because it had fallen into disrepair for so long. Those days are obviously gone, and I enjoyed the course I played (Legends) immensely (Granted, I got a nice discount rate through GolfNow). Pace of play: 4.5 hours. And I really liked the amenities and service of the place. Very scenic, fairly flat, and fun layout and greens, with fairways and putting surfaces in good shape (slightly slower than they looked). Bonus: They offer both GolfBoard and a scooter in addition to standard carts. I chose the GolfBoard, and it just added to the fun.
Pricey for the course but still scenic and beautiful
Its san diego, expect it to be pricey especially at a resort
They did a good job taking care of me at the valet drop off (thats the closest way to get to the course - and they will take your bag and bring it to the course)
Course was fun and the greens were slow and fast (it was easy to tell by the green condition whether it was fast or slow)
WArning - Drivers are not allowed on the practice range
When I finished however i had to walk pretty far with my bag to get to my car - apparently they will get your car only if you push for it but the day was extremely hot and they were hesitant to get my car. Since the employees looked older and were dremched in sweat I decided I should be kind enough to walk back myself - made the 2 block long walk with my gear in 90F weather. Rough walk
Avg SoCal course.
Worth $50, not $150. Tipping out the yen-yang. Ridiculously tall rough. Greens are not as good as most in the area. Course bathrooms were not clean. Course is average.
Course is in good shape
Greens are firm but a little slow
Bunkers are okay, few with minimal sand( fine for fairway bunkers)
Got a hot deal well worth the money.
Staff is great as well as practice facilities.
Would recommend it to anyone in the area
Staff was super friendly. Finding the club house was a little confusing to find inside the resort. Course was in great shape. Played 18 in just under 4 hours. Would definitely play this course again.
Thank you for playing with us and taking the time to review!
Before booking my tee time, I checked out a few of the reviews. Some of the reviews were not very positive, so when I booked my tee time at a discount price, I wasn't expecting a whole lot. Man, was I wrong. Very friendly pro shop staff, especially David, friendly starter, but most of all, I thought the course was in great shape. The greens were the best I played in the San Diego area. Will for sure return.
Thanks so much for playing with us and sharing your feedback! Our new Director of Golf Course Maintenance is doing great things out there! Come back and see us again soon! Dustin
Excellent day of golf. Terrific course, staff even better.
Thanks knipster7 for the great review! The cooler temps in the spring kept the grass dormant longer than usual and resulted in a good amount of negative reviews. Temps are up and the turf is thriving. Come see us again and thank you again for playing La Costa! Dustin
Golf as it Should Be
Omni La Costa was great. The grounds leading up to the course are very impressive. The valet took my clubs from the trunk of my car and down to the carts. He also asked if I had played there before and gave me directions to the pro shop. While getting to the pro shop was a little convoluted it was not to bad. I was attended to quickly and professionally. It was a busy day but the quickly got me and my bags onto a cart and pointed me to the driving range and 1st tee. Balls for the driving range were included so I warmed up as much as I liked. I rolled a few on the putting green and felt the greens as smooth and FAST. The starter was a little prickly but helpful. There are a few forced carries when you tee off and ditches to clear on approach but overall nothing overwhelming. The fairways were fantastic; fluffy and green. The greens were like glass. After the round, they took my clubs from the cart to the valet station while I visited the 19th hole. A great experience.
Thank you DrGonzalez for playing with us and for the great review! We appreciate your support and hope to see you out again soon. Dustin
