Located north of San Diego in Carlsbad, Omni La Costa Resort & Spa is a legendary golf and wellness getaway in southern California. The resort, which opened in the 1950s, has hosted 37 elite PGA Tour events. The Champions Course features a serene setting that meanders through peaceful wetlands over landscaped bridges and rolling hills. The course underwent a significant renovation in 2011 by Steve Pate, Damian Pascuzzo and Jeff Brauer, which included four brand new holes and improved irrigation and soil for improved course conditions year-round.

Really nice track, tough putting, tricky greens. I will definitely play it differently the next time, knowing the layout now.

Gorgeous course

The course layout is creative and challenging with many holes at higher elevations than fairway positions. Pin placement at strategic locations for a first timer, which made it tough. Thoroughly enjoyed myself, and pace of play was at a good clip.
Will play at this location again and have placed it on my list of ( Must play courses).

You Have To Disclose

Loved the course in general. I probably would have chosen white tees but we were teamed with a man playing blue and woman and it just seemed like too much tee shuffling so we joined him. My real issue was that the greens had been punched and that was not disclosed to me. Bad move on Golfnow!

aeration ok, pace very slow

Greens were aerated but was expected.
Group ahead was couple with 2 children (who couldn't hit it 10 yds.) Passed them, next were 2 men giving lessons to each other on the fairway.
Passed them, next was a 5 some, two parents 3 children (all trying to play or run around the greens.)
None of the above people should have been on a golf course.
Skipped 4 holes to back 9, which was open.

La Costa needs some work...

Played the Champions course. Great layout, love the track but it’s beat up. Tee boxes were beat, fairways were devoted everywhere and not repaired, rough was unwieldy, greens were ok though and bunkers were good. It’s not the PGA level course you might expect but a good track.

Champions

Played the champions course today, greens are extremely firm. Rolled very true though. Fairways and bunkers were good along w tee boxes. Saw the cart girl plenty of times. Greens were decently fast considering how hard they were.. overall a Great day on the course! Just try to soften up the greens a little bit!

Has potential

The course was in such poor shape. Tee boxes were extremely beat up. With dead grass all over. The greens were rolling nice, but the fringe was chunky. The rough had lots of weeds. For the price they charge it’s definitely not worth it. I would go to Torrey pines for the same price.
