I got a "hot deal" for this course; otherwise it's very expensive. This course really punishes shots that are a little bit off track, sometimes more than what might be fair. The rough doesn't seem very long, but it's very fluffy and it's easy to get too much under the ball, popping it up. At this time of year, they were reseeding Legends, so Champions was the only course open. Some of the greens were a bit soggy and were marked up by ball marks as a results (slow and bumpy), while a few of them were drier, true and would not hold an approach shot. It helped that the people I played with had a little bit of experience on the course. I played the blue tees because that's what they played. If I was playing with my normal partners, I probably would have played white or the combo. The combo does about half and half, taking the sting out of the really long par 4 holes (mainly).

He would play this course again.

I have golfed several times at this course and always find it both enjoyable and challenging. The reason I did not give the course conditions a fifth star was due to the very pock-marked greens. I don't recall the greens being in this poor of shape when I have played before so maybe it was due to a recent tournament that they had.

This course used to be one of the most sought after places to play in San Diego County. The Legends is now for the public. The other course is now private. The greens were true but very torn up.

He would not play this course again.

The layout and the ambiance at La Costa was great, but the course conditions do not warrant the price charged. Greens were not in great shape, but it was late in the afternoon. Would play again if the greens were in better shape.
