La Costa Resort and Spa, Champions Course, Carlsbad, USA








A world class resort and a golf top destination in Southern California with two completely renovated 18 hole golf courses surrounded by picturesque and unique settings.
Formerly known as the North Course and South Course, after a complete renovation the Champions Course (2012) and the Legend Course (2013) offer the club members and resort guests a total new and enhanced golf experience.
This is today La Costa Resort and Spa, an exclusive and historic resort that since 1965, with its iconic lifestyle, defined the new standards of luxury vacations in America. 
A favorite retreat for celebrities and a golf course walked by the best PGA Tour players where many chapters in golf history have been written.
For thirty years the resort hosted the PGA Tour Tournament of Champions (1969-1998), have been home to the the WGC Accenture Match Play Championship for seven editions (1999, 2000, 2002-2006) before moving Arizona, and saw the return of a professional venue in 2012 hosting the LPGA Kia Classic.

The Champions Course, 7152 yds from the back tees (75.1/140), reopened in 2012 after a one year overall renovation. Originally designed by Architect Dick Wilson, the renovation have been made by Damian Pascuzzo and former PGA player Steve Pate in association with former ASGCA president Jeff Brauer.
They realized a new updated golf course, still challenging but more player friendly, bringing significant alterations to the original layout. Four holes have completely redesigned, fairways have been planted with 419 bermuda and capped with more then seven inches of sand, and drainage system improved. Some of the greens have been reshaped and redesigned as well and A-4 bentgrass have been used on the putting surfaces. New lakes and new bunkers have been added (now more then 70 bunkers on the course), and some tees have been repositioned. 
The result is an outstanding golf course able to take advantage of the natural surroundings providing golfers with a scenic challenging and enjoyable golf experience.

After just two years from the reopening the new Champions Course and the resort have received the following accolades:

• “Greens of Distinction,” Corporate & Incentive Travel, 2013 
• Southern California’s Only Gold Medal Golf Resort, Golf Magazine, 2012 
• Gold Tee Award, Meetings & Conventions, 2011, 2012, 2013 
• Top 10 Family Vacation Spots, Travel Channel, 2012 
• Best Spa for Golf, SpaFinder Readers’ Choice Awards, 2012


I played The Champions Course on an really busy afternoon. All the tee times were reserved and despite that I completed my round with my three partners in less then four hours, thanks also to the help of The Golf Squad, nine ambassadors who patrol the course providing support  and assistance to golfers by ranking bunker, helping them reading putts or searching balls on errant shots. 
A great idea other golf courses should copy.

A new era begun for La Costa, an innovated modern layout which still maintain the traditional features of a classic course on one of the most extraordinary resorts of the West Coast.
