I also got to join the fun at the latest GK event. I played with Jim, Kevin and Greg- thanks, guys!! This was my first visit to La Costa. The resort is beautiful and the staff very friendly and helpful. I agree with some of the previous reviews regarding the course conditions. I really liked the fairways. Other than the crazy number of unfilled divots, they were in great shape. I was in the deep rough many times but it wasn’t hard to hit out of. The bunkers were a bit thin but the sand was nice and I actually made a couple of good shots out of it. The greens weren’t pretty but rolled fast and smoothly. They had lots of unexpected breaks which kept us on our toes. Visually, overall, I found the course somewhat bland. I guess I just prefer hillier courses. What was really interesting, though, was the wind on the back nine. One minute it would blow warm, the next cold- very unusual. I would like to return sometime to play the other course. Thank you, Johnny, for another wonderful day. I really appreciate everything you do for us.» Close

Played yesterday, 12-3-17, with iluv2golflady and her friend, Mike. We had an 11:15am tee time and got out immediately. Indian Hills is always good when looking for something inexpensive and local. It’s a pretty fun course with a variety of holes. It has some big elevation changes on the back 9. The front is basically flat except for the par 3 #3…don’t miss right!
Course conditions were pretty ok. Tee boxes were recently over seeded so they had good coverage but many were very out of level. The fairways were mostly good but there were many areas marked GUR and several others that should have been. Bunkers were clean, soft, damp dirt. The greens were somewhat disappointing, though. The grass has recovered nicely from the recent punching. They rolled pretty fast but they ranged from damp to waterlogged (#16) so were very bumpy.
POP was good at 4 hrs. We were behind a fivesome but rarely waited and there was no one behind us. The beverage cart came by 3 times. A fun day on a fun course.» Close

I played today, 11-26-17. After seeing some current photos online, I knew conditions had recovered from the terrible shape the course was in the last time I played there, shortly before they closed for the summer. It’s a bit pricey now but I was so eager to play again that I found a Hot Deal and stacked a couple of rewards to bring down the cost a bit. I was paired with a very nice twosome and another single. Our tee time was 7:04am but we got out early at 6:45am.
The cart guys and starter are all very friendly and efficient, as is the guy in the pro shop who told me that the course in under new ownership. So far it seems to be a good thing. They have all new carts with ice chest and USB. The GPS units are to be installed soon. The course was in fantastic condition. The fairways were emerald green and lush. The yardage marker poles in the fairway centers have been removed and replaced by very large painted rocks on the sides of the fairways. The tee boxes were level but in need of mowing. The rough was all in good shape but varied a lot in length from one to maybe four inches in some areas. I was in one bunker. It was damp but soft, clean and well groomed. The greens were good. They were very quick even when wet in the morning and just got faster and faster. The rolled smoothly, except where there was a ring-shaped depression around many of the cups. I’m not sure what those were caused by. OB vegetation was nicely trimmed but it’s still so dense that it’s pretty much impossible to retrieve lost balls. It was also nice to see clear water in the lakes on 8 and 16. All the palm trees behind the 10th green are blackened from a recent brush fire.
I’ve said so many times how much I love this course, but the truth is it’s a love/hate relationship. It makes me crazy. The course beckons me with its beauty and layout and then it taunts me and beats me up – every time. Yet I feel compelled to keep going back to try again. It’s like I’m a kid determined to do something I’ve been told I can’t do (like get a good score – I’ve yet to break 100 there.) Will I return? Absolutely!!» Close

Played a Thanksgiving day shotgun along with iluv2golflady. Everything was very well organized and we started on time at 8am. It was great to see all new carts. They are very comfy and are outfitted with club/ball washers, USB ports and interactive GPS.
The course in the best overall condition I’ve ever seen. The fairways were green and lush with a few divots but no bad lies otherwise. The rough was uniform throughout the course. It was cut fairly short, which was easy to hit from but, unfortunately, too short to keep balls from running off the cliffs. The bunkers had an inch or so of clean soft sand. Tee boxes were level. The greens were amazing. They looked like velvet, held shots well and putts rolled fast. They were such a pleasure. The vegetation throughout the course was cut back and thinned out giving the course a very neat and clean appearance. It was also great to see that #15 is no longer cart path only.
The only negative feature is the on-course bathrooms. They have no door locks, no soap and had ants on the seats. I have mentioned the lack of locks to the staff on previous visits and just don’t understand why this is apparently unimportant to them.
This is such a fun and challenging course. I always look forward to playing here. Definitely recommended.» Close

Played today with an 8:38 tee time. I knew there was a good Underpar deal avail but getting early tee time was the higher priority so we were willing to pay $65 senior rate to be able to reserve farther in advance. Check in was fast and the starter, Denis, was very friendly.
The fairways were in very nice shape. There was just a small amount of browning, lots of roll and we found no bad lies. The tee boxes were mostly level but a bit shaggy. I was in two bunkers, both of which had really good sand. It might have just been my imagination but it really smelled like ocean sand. The rough varied from as short as the fairways to deep patches that all but covered the ball. The greens were beautifully green with only an occasional ball mark. They were very soft, though, with footprints and spike marks causing lots of slow, bumpy rolls. The edges of the cups were in need of trimming too.
This is such a fun course with a good variety of holes and lots of beautiful scenery. Who doesn’t love the view from the 18th tee! POP was good at just a bit over 4 hrs. I managed a good score and no lost balls. All in all, a great day. Glen Ivy – highly recommended.» Close
