Played 9/5 as a 3ball. Off at 7:10, right on time. The small staff at Crosscreek are accommodating efficient and friendly, from the front desk to the starter and especially Leslie, in the snack bar. Lots of water on the course. Tees were a little beat up in a few spots, but overall fine. Fairways had good coverage. Rough in some areas was REALLY enjoying the watering. Greens were in very good shape at medium speed and seemed faster on north-to-south putts. All the grapes are in filling in the open areas on the first nine and it looks great. The GK coupon was a steal with a very nice bonus burger at the finish. I'll be back soon.» Close

Very late review for the Omni La Costa course played in the GK event on 7-13. Played with Johnny, Moose and Andy, a foursome in search of some fun. The foursome was great to play with, enjoying each others good shots as well as their own and not letting the bad ones ruin a beautiful day. Having not played La Costa in over 30 years and always thinking it was a bit over-rated, I was pleasantly surprised by the redesign. Loved the front nine and the back didn't disappoint either. I agree with the comments on the practice range. My local par 3 has a better range. If I have to hit off carpet, at least make it nice carpet at a resort like this. The layout usually influences my reviews more than the conditions. I thought the greens were very good, quick but not DON'T GET ABOVE THE HOLE exasperating. The traps had decent sand with no gravel, but needed a deep raking. I didn't have a bad lie in the fairway all day. Rough was as expected this time of year, thin where there's no water, and thicker where there is. Not that keen on riding unless I have to, and you wouldn't have to here, though I didn't see anybody walking -I can't see why they wouldn't allow it. Others mentioned the carts going into reverse-only mode if you entered the fairway on some holes.
There was no warning to stay on the path in advance. The alarm would go off after you were 25 yards into the forbidden garden and you'd have to back out. Everybody hates getting punished for something you didn't know you weren't supposed to do. Overall had a lot of fun and will be looking to return with the Costco-GM deal.» Close
