Staff and others were very friendly and helpful. Course was in good shape and greens fast. Frost delay increased the wait times between holes. Pace of play was poor, at best. I'm sure the holiday weekend added to it as well.

Not worth the money.

Not worth the money. I had friends in town and the resort itself looked wonderful. However the course had maintenance crews everywhere. There were five holes were all we could hear was the tree crunching machine. Greens half of them were Sandy half of them were in in OK condition. Condition I would not recommend this course to my friend. I had always wanted to play Lacosta which had a great reputation, but was totally disappointed with the course itself.

Legends Course

Course was in very good shape. Valet, Pro Shop and Starter were all very friendly and helpful. Pace of play was good. I was playing in a twosome and we had a slower group in front of us. The Course Marshall was helpful and asked that group to please speed up. They ended up waiving us through. Would play again.

Terrible Sanded Greens

Just played today & the greens were terrible. They have a weird sand on them that’s some type of fertilizer which made the greens terribly inconsistent. The same green would be fast or slow depending on where you landed. Worst part is they’re boasting that the course is in great shape. Wouldn’t pay $145 for that ever again

Great course that is getting better. A bit overpriced compared to other local, comparable courses. Grounds crew could be more mindful of players.

Golf now booker beware.

EVERY time I book this place through golfnow I get lousy times or they send me out as a single between slow groups. This is the 5th time in 2 years this happened. I don't think LaCosta cares about times payed through golfnow. I booked with a 3 some so the pace would be steady. When I got there they said the 3 some I booked with wanted to play alone,WHAT? There were no other groups for an hour so I went out by myself. Place was punched, not told that. Bunkers were dirt hard pan, lousy. Waited 10 minutes on every hole and sometimes longer. Course was not in good shape either. Ended up skipping the entire front 9 and went to the back 9 and waited some more. # groups on 18 tee. What a waste, never again.
