Golf Advisor: Top 25 Off-course amenities in the U.S.
The course was a bit wet from recent rains but was in pretty good condition overall. The greens were good - but many people don't fix ball marks. Staff was friendly and efficient. I would play the course again.
Overall a great day, esp for a $60 hot deal..
Only issue was alittle sand/ yellowish pebbles on the greens. Maybe in prep for the rain that’s expected. Didn’t affect your line at all. They stayed true but deff slowed the ball down a lot while putting and chipping onto them.
Fairways, tee boxes, rough,and sand all in great shape. Not sure what was up w the sandy greens but for a hot deal it was well worth the $.
Beautiful course. Staff was friendly and helpful. Would recommend and would play again.
Expected more from a resort course
While I got a good deal to play here, I was frustrated by the course conditions. I expected the fairways to be lush and thick. But the grass was so short it was like hitting off a range mat. I had a lot of trouble getting my clubs under the ball, especially when chipping. I had better luck hitting out of the rough. The sand traps were plentiful and huge, so I ended up in a lot of them. Sand was not light snd fluffy. All in all, I would not return. Too many other good courses in San Diego.
champions course in wet conditions
The course played ok given the conditions; very wet and cart path only. We were a foursome of 2 couples and had to put our bags on the carts, not good for a place charging $135 pp. They also pretty much ran out of food at the half way house and we were a 10:30 tee time. Very POOR planning. Other than that all was fine given the area just had 5 days of rain.
Great course, played the legends, staff very friendly, another month and the course will be perfect, had fun and will be back.
Got a hot deal, well worth the money. i wouldn’t pay more than 75$ to play here.
Tee boxes are 7 out of 10, fairways are 7-10, rough is growing back nicely from the overseed.
Greens are 6.5-10, Lots of pitch marks and tons of birds all over the course. Could be worse though.. They’re hard but not fast prob a 9 on the meter. Pace was amazing. Finished in about 4 hours. Lay out is good and always a fun place to play esp for a hot deal time .
Giving it a 7.8 out of 10 for the legends course.
Course was in terrible condition. Wouldn’t t play it again. At least not at this time of year.
Par 3s say come get me (if you can)!
Wonderful par 3s that vary in length, green size, elevation, contour and especially not the same distance on every one. Overall great layout with good variety of hole directions and distances. Make sure to hit the putting green before tackling these greens. Speed and little undulations in them can make you scratch your head. Course has some rough spots here and there but not enough to make you regret playing here or keeping you from coming back. Recommend playing from fairway versus the bunkers. Bunkers have high lips.
Greens in rough shape
Good value at $60/ round with golf now hot shot rate. Wouldn’t that $125 rack rate. Course average difficulty. Some fairways narrow but overall good layout.
what a treat
Treated my self to a nice course while on vacation in San Diego. Good price on Golf Now. Went off at 8:55 by my self. Finished in 2hr 45 min and waited on the last 3 holes. Love Speed golf. The greens rolled very true with good speed. Several ball marks on the greens from lazy golfers not fixing there marks. Hardly any distinction between the fair ways and the rough which was a real treat. Can't say enough about the course and it's conditions. Teed it forward, that definitely helped. Looking forward to our next visit to SD so I can take the wife there. Great morning of golf thanks La Costa.
1:52 tee time, pretty crowded, greens rolling fast and true, good company, less than 4 hours! IMO a good bang for the buck. Thanks GolfNow.
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.
