Great course!

Played this course several times and always like the layout and practice facility offered. The course overall is in good shape. The bunkers can be better. Can't wait to see the outcome of the renovation planned for later this year.

Great resort

La costs is a primo resort. Great place to have lunch and relax before round. Played champions course which was in at best acceptable condition. Course is set in. canyon therefore all holes pretty flat. Nothing memorable. Except last par threes which you hit from in front of resort. Good to play if can’t get on Torrey.

Above average course

Staying at the resort, so I wanted to play both courses. Today was the Champion course. The course looked about dry from the clubhouse (brown portions of fairway). As I played, the fairways were pristine. I had to touch the first fairway to make sure it was real! The bunkers were deeper than any I have ever played and the sand was a bit hard. The layout was not overly challenging and it provides many scoring opportunities. Not as many elevation changes as I would like. I really liked the 4-seater gold cart that allowed my kids and grandma ride along for the views. I think it was in the top 5 courses that I have played, which is only around 15-20 courses. I will play the Legends course in 2 days.

$175! For Slow Play?!

For starters asking to share a cart at these prices is an insult and that’s what the starter asked me on the first tee. In this age of Covid19 plus at this price point that’s just nuts. Furthermore what marshal and where? I understand it’s a resort course with out of town people- still the pace was obscenely slow following a group that was at least one hole, maybe 2, behind. They need to pick up or move up. Beyond disappointed on what otherwise should have need a good day out. :-/

Overpriced

Not a good value. The facility is a maze to navigate and the course is average, nothing special. Don’t plan on playing here again

Pick your side wisely

There’s such a difference between the two course, that if you choose wisely, you’ll play a SD gem,. Yet, if you choose poorly, you’ll wish you were a goat so you could have at least eaten with the price of admission... Good luck
