The golf courses at La Costa, Southern California's only Gold Medal Golf Resort, are amongst the most storied in California, boasting a rich tournament history and a cadre of prominent guests, ranging from the best professional golfers in the world, to prominent politicians, Hollywood celebrities and legendary sports heroes. La Costa's tee sheets read like a who's who: Jack Nicklaus, Gary Player, Phil Mickelson, Tiger Woods and more. Almost 50 years after their inception, our two courses now offer the modern player new challenges while reintroducing this championship-caliber golf destination to world-class standards.
First, the Champions Course, Dick Wilson's only Californian design and the home of the 2012 LPGA Kia Classic, has been completely restored and dressed with all-new bent grass greens, Bermuda fairways and strategically placed bunkers. In turn, the South Course has received four redesigned holes with a tally of other landscape improvements sure to mature over time. Fairway contours have been altered; a modernized drainage system has been added for sustainability, improved water flow and irrigation; 30-acres of maintained turf have been reduced for water conservation; native grasses and lakes have been added to challenge all levels. These improvements take golf at La Costa to an unprecedented level of excellence while doing honor to our past as Southern California's premier golf resort.
