La Costa Resort Golf Vacation

When you want your golf vacation to be extraordinary and exceptional, at once relaxing and exhilarating, Carlesbad, California's La Costa Resort is the place for you. The coastal community's star resort, La Costa has an understated comfort and elegance few have the confidence to embrace.

For decades, this world-class golf (and tennis) resort and spa has been serving the best on its two championship golf courses with golf vacation packages. Host to World Golf Championships, the North Course has been played by the Jack Nicklaus, Tiger Woods, Lee Trevino, Phil Mickelson, and Mark O'Meara, just to name a few.

The wide fairways make La Costa a likely choice for such events, but that alone isn't what makes a course world-class. Designed by Dick Wilson, the 7021 yard North Course is rated at 74.9, with a slope rating of 141. You will need strength, strategy and accuracy to play this course well. Water hazards and bunkers come into play regularly, often more than one at a time. Deceptively simple in appearance, you'll enjoy the challenge, and want to play the course often enough to get it right.

The South Course is a bit more picturesque version with similar dangers and intensity. Rated at 74.8, this 7004 yard course deserves the slope rating of 140. Those who think that equates to being just slightly easier than the North Course will be relieved of that ignorance in the last four holes, sometimes referred to as the "Longest Mile In Golf." Gratefully, those of us who aren't pros can play from the other three sets of tees, but neither of these courses will ever be considered easy.

When you're ready for some pampering and relaxation, Dr. Deepak Chopra's Chopra Spa takes the concept to the next level. The Roman waterfall, a massive, serene courtyard, suites adjoining those areas and facilities, and leading-edge therapies are combined to provide you with precisely the experience you long for. A consultation with the staff is all it takes to let your wishes be known. They'll take it from there. Whether you want to leave loose as a jellyfish, invigorated and refreshed, ready to take on the world (or play another round,) or just want to be spoiled rotten, the team at La Costa's spa will make your dreams come true.

The ladies will appreciate celebrity hair stylist Billy Yamaguchi, who operates his salon on the premises, and incorporates the ancient Chinese wisdom of Feng Shui into the designs that he and his staff create. Another example of the ways in which La Costa is extraordinary, the Yamaguchi Salon takes the time to have a personal consultation with you, and create a style which facilitates greater confidence and accentuates natural beauty.

Accommodations include flat-screen TVs, high-speed internet, and plush terrycloth robes to ensure than your lounging time in the room is comfortable. The rooms and suites themselves, situated amongst 400 garden-setting acres, are spacious and the decor is eye-pleasing, employing furnishings which speak to a calm sense of dignified comfort. Suites are made to accommodate guests and their visitors, and can provide dining for up to six people. With over one hundred and forty million dollars in renovations, La Costa is certain to afford you the comfort one would expect from so celebrated a resort.

With unlimited golf packages available, the La Costa Resort has made it even easier to decide. Their packages are very reasonable, a tribute to the golf course heritage which has been at the heart of this wonderful destination since they opened in 1965. If your companion is not a golfer, there are even packages that allow you to golf while your companion spends the day being pampered at the spa.

What a great way to spend a vacation; La Costa is one fantastic golf vacation destination!
