World-class Champions Course

After recent completion of the world-class Champions Course, a redesign of Dick Wilson’s only California design, Omni La Costa Resort and Spa invites you to follow in the footsteps of legends at the historic home of 37 PGA events, rebuilt for the modern player. Adding a handicap to the already ambitious course are redesigned bunkers — true to the spirit and character of Dick Wilson’s signature design — now stacked, staggered and strategically placed throughout each hole. Tighten your game on the rough narrow course with planted native grasses. Keep your equipment dry while in the trenches with a modern drainage system installed for sustainability, improving water flow and irrigation throughout both the Champions and South golf courses. Other upgrades include tee boxes, landscaping bridges, fairways and greens, wetlands and rerouted paths. Additionally, the new golf course is family friendly, with all new family tees.

Hole 1

Elevated tees provide a grand vista of the accommodating landing area, and fairway bunkers that can impact longer drives.  The raised green is heavily bunkered, with a safe, grassy hollow on the right.

Par 4, Read Description

Hole 2

Straightaway toward fairway bunkers on each side, the right extending to the middle of the landing area.  Clearing the fairway ridge means a chance to reach the green in two.  From the fairway through the green, a lake borders the right side, with bunkering along the layup zone and around the elevated green.

Par 5, Read Description

Hole 3

Deceptively more uphill than it appears, the green surface is mostly hidden from the tee.  Two huge front bunkers are in sight.  The green is deep, rising in the middle and sloping away to both the left and right.

Par 3, Read Description

Hole 4

This dogleg wraps around the left fairway bunker, offering an aggressive approach, while the visible landing area offers room between the bunkers.  A cavernous front bunker guards a narrow, two-tiered green.

Par 4, Read Description

Hole 5

Next to the lake along the right, the upper tees offer a view of a roomy fairway, while the lower tees are less revealing.  A long, narrow green rises from front to back, with bunkering at all four corners.

Par 4, Read Description

Hole 6

Raised tees lead to receptive landing areas, with bunkering on the left to challenge those trying to reach the green in two.  The hillside green has a deadly false front, but is deep, with extra room on the right.

Par 5, Read Description

Hole 7

A downhill dogleg left, fairway bunkering provides ideal target lines, while a grove of trees guards the corner.  A swale crosses in front of a wide opening to the green, set above a strong face and front-left bunker.

Par 4, Read Description

Hole 8

A lake spreads completely across the direct line to the green, with an optional landing area provided on the left.  A long bunker runs behind the wide, shallow green, with a “horseshoe” terrace behind the low front.

Par 3, Read Description

Hole 9

This dogleg right curves around a large lake, with two large bunkers on that back side of the turn providing the principle lines of attack.  The fairway runs uphill to the green, guarded by a front bunker.

Par 4, Read Description

Hole 10

This downhill “double-dogleg” offers a generous landing area, with trees on the right corner.  At mid-fairway, a lake borders the left side.  The green sits behind the water, a challenge to reach in two.  The layup zone is open, alongside a fairway bunker, and offers easy access to a green that rises from front right to back left.

Par 5, Read Description

Hole 11

Elevated tees lead downhill to a dogleg right, with water along the entire right side of a wide landing area.  A bunker is on the left of a crescent-shaped green, which rises to a crest before sloping down to the back.

Par 4, Read Description

Hole 12

A string of four small bunkers guard the front left side of a large, round green, which sits above a swale that crosses in the front.  A large grassy collection area is on the right, while the left is an environmentally protected area.

Par 3, Read Description

Hole 13

This sharp dogleg right is defined by encroaching trees along the tee and a lake that stretches from the corner all along the right side to the two-tier green, divided by a long ridge slanting front left to back right.

Par 4, Read Description

Hole 14

A narrow, meandering creek runs along the left side, crossing the fairway into play throughout the landing areas, and then continuing up the entire right side.  An elevated green is guarded by two bunkers on the front-left and one below on the right, between the green and the creek.

Par 4, Read Description

Hole 15

Straightaway off the tee across a creek through parallel lines of trees, the fairway is roomy, despite the visual impact of the bunkering.  Bunkers guard a small, elevated green, with water looming left and rear.

Par 4, Read Description

Hole 16

A picturesque shot over the lake is a full carry to a shallow green perched above the water.  Bunkers also guard the front, right and back of the green, which slopes from a center ridge down to the left and right.

Par 3, Read Description

Hole 17

The dogleg right starts across a waste bunker, with room in the landing area away from the trees on the corner.  A lake runs along the right side, from the turn to the hourglass green, hidden by two deep front bunkers.

Par 4, Read Description

Hole 18

The first of two lakes creates a tee shot over water, which sits along the right side of the landing area.  A second lake then comes into play on the left, as does a creek crossing the fairway about 30 yards below the elevated, hillside green.  Grassy “church pews” guard the left of the green, with a deep bunker on the right.
