Disappointed with condition

I played both this course and legends course and found the champions course was in poor shape in comparison. I also was a bit annoyed that workers were doing work on many holes and didn’t stop working as we were approaching the greens. This is a distraction and should not be done in midday. Course layout was good but greens had been aerated recently and were bumpy. Lots of dirt spots on the course and a few areas near greens looked like there were recently repaired and not flat. Sand very hard like a rock in bunkers and made it difficult to get out of. Staff was very accommodating and beverage cart and halfway house on the course was a plus. Course could be spectacular if it was in better shape. I would not play it again unless I was sure course conditions were improved.

Nice challenging course

I played here for the first time and enjoyed the course. Course was in very good shape and greens were very fast. There were some holes that require a lengthy carry for some and I would not recommend course for higher handicap golfers, but I had no issues. Overall found course was fair but challenging. It was nice that there were beverage carts on course as well as halfway house and bathrooms. Practice facility was adequate . Would play on this course again.

Had higher expectations for La Costa..

Greens were in poor condition!
Fariways were average at best, over water spots, crab grass fringes, and bunkers sand/dirt not consistent. For cost, I had higher expectations! I can think of 4 courses in North county in better condition for equal or better value. Was told La Costa Championship course will be getting extra TLC because it will host NCAA 2024 Championship (, May 24-29). I guess grounds crew will be spending even less time on Lengend's cours. Maybe Champions course is better value? Oh yeah, 1st and 2nd holes you tee off into the sunrise maybe course designer was from east coast..

La Costa Legends

Staff was very friendly & helpful. The greens were pretty bumpy & sand traps were too compacted. Tee boxes and fairways were okay, but not great. Very pretty course but the recent aeration affected the quality of play.

The Better Layout of the Two

Champions is the preferred course layout over Legends, IMO. Fairways were great, the greens were rolling pretty smooth. You don't feel the repetitiveness of the Legends holes.

Champions Course at Omni

The greens were in bad shape. They look like they were punched recently. They need a few weeks to recover. Faculty and staff were great.

So much potential

This course could be great, but it's just not. Terrible greens and tee boxes look like sand traps. I really wanted to like it, but it needs a lot of attention.

CARLSBAD LEGEND

This was my second round at Omni Legends in 2021 and each presented a different experience. In my first attempt, I was paired with another friendly single who was also playing for the first time. We played the combo tees and enjoyed our morning round without too much trouble or too many highlights. For this September round, I booked a full foursome of friends and we had a great day at Omni. My round got off to a brutal triple-triple start but settled down from there. The course starts with a variety of par 4s and tests your approach game right from the start. All of the par 5s are uniquely scoreable and the finisher on each 9 helps add some excitement to the round if there is any money on the line. Omni Legends may be my favorite course in the Carlsbad area; much more fair and straightforward than Crossings or Encinitas Ranch. Legends will reward you if you are striking the ball well, but will penalize you if you are struggling to keep it straight off the tee.
