Inexpensive Twilight Round on a Weekend

Fairways were in great shape, the green side rough was pretty good as well. The bunkers were not fluffy, and definitely bordered close to hard dirt than sand, still you could get out of them with good spin using a lob wedge if you hit the "sand" hard enough. The greens were rolling fast (faster than Torrey). Unfortunately, people don't replace their divots and some holes rolled bumpy. Managed to get through 15 holes within 3.5 hours, not bad for a $50 Hot Deal ($40 if you're a GolfPass member using one of your monthly credits).

Amazing course, ran out of golf carts and no marshall enforcing pace.

I booked an afternoon tee time and knew that there was a chance it’d get dark before I finished. When I arrived they had no carts available so I walked to the range and back. Still no carts available when it was time to tee off. They gave me the starters cart that had no gps and a partial charge. I could walk faster than this cart. Pace of play was painfully slow. The greens were trampled after a big morning tournament, but overall the condition was well above average for the area. Really disappointed in the lack of course Marshalls to keep the pace going. We would have finished before dark if not for slow play. I’d play again if discounted and a morning tee time.

Legends

Rode the Blues (6587/72.8/133) in about 4.5H mid day with Ron and Marvin. Thanks for an enjoyable round guys! Thanks to John for coordinating the guru outing and La Costa for having us out. Partly cloudy, high 60's with a little breeze made for nice golfing conditions. We caught a slower 4some on the 3rd green and waited most shots the rest of the day.

Layout has 18 solid holes but nothing spectacular. IMO, Champions is the superior 18 @ La Costa. Very playable, not overly tight with enough trees and water to keep you focused.

Tees were decent, nice coverage and only the par 3's needed divot attention.

Fairways were mostly good to play from with good coverage from a mixture of grasses.

Rough had decent coverage and has many different grasses. Lies could be all over the place even a few ft. apart.

Traps looked good but did not play well. Thin layer of sand over hardpan is great for fairway bunkers but is not good to play out of greenside onto fast greens.

Greens were medium fast and held balls well. Softer than most greens I play, so players not fixing ball marks was a challenge. As were the coot droppings. Overall, I probably liked them more than most.

Very playable, only the traps were not above average IMO. However, I was disappointed in the playing conditions for a course of this stature that charges rack rates well north of $100. Drink cart around a couple of times and there was an open snack stand on the course that was accessible on both 9's. Cart guys very attentive. Okay range on mats with complementary balls. Most available parking is a hike from the golf shop. Overall recommended if you get a deal, but would not pay full price for what we experienced today.

Legends Course is in less than mediocre condition. Greens are poorly maintained and restrooms are dirty. Staff was very congenial. I will not be back.
