Played 2-13-18 with JohnnyGK, Raidernationkennels, and Adigitalg87 getting around the course in a little over four hours with no waiting. Tee boxes were mostly level, in good shape and cut tight. Fairways were semi-lush with some thin areas but nice to hit from with good roll out. Rough were in descent shape not to long with some thin areas.Bunkers were nicely groomed and had medium firm sand. Greens were in good shape with some minor thin spots around the edges, they were holding well struck shots and rolling medium speed and smooth.

Played Omni La Costa Ledges Course Tuesday with 7 fellow GK Gurus. Our foursome included myself, rgm2525, raidernationkennels and adigitalg87. Super time. We were treated to some beautiful cool morning weather and golf course in great shape. We had a GK Plays outing here on 12/9 so this was my first return since. I thought Tuesday the golf course was in even better shape.
Again, still some issues on the first three greens with patch work but overall those greens are rolling better and in general I thought the entire course greens were better than in December. Fairways were lush and not dormant (with the warm winter we have had the Paspalum turf has held on to its color and lushness very well). Rough was lush and in great shape. Bunkers, with exception to greenside hole 18 which was thin, all others I experienced had quality sand and well groomed. Tee boxes (we played the blue tees) level and lush.
Although I still like the layout of their other golf course, Champions, better, I am enjoying the layout of the Legends course the more I play it. There is a lot more strategy when playing this course than meets the eye. There are approach angles essential to have to get the ball reasonable close with many different pin placements. The greens are the main line of defense out there and you need every edge you can get. I normally play a right-left ball, but on the back nine I played a left-right tee shot sacrificing some distance in an attempt to be more center fairway and avoid large trees. Overall the golf course is very well suited for a left-right player. There are some monster par 4’s out there as well. It was common for me to be hitting a long iron into a green despite a good drive. Personally I feel hole #3 and hole #10 are the most difficult.
Looking forward to my next round out there, hopefully sooner than later.
Ok kinda a goofy hole here? Par 4 331 from the blue, with 3 areas seperated by a stream. The tee shot comes from the first area, over the stream to the landing area. Be as far right as you can be here so as not to be blocked by very tall trees blocking the left side. 215 yards to reach the bunker on the right. The second shot is the most demanding shot !130 yards up hill into the wind to a skinny green with bunkers all around .
Long par 3 , 211 from the tips. A stream is only in play if you hit one really fat. Elevated green with 4 very large bunkers all over the place. Be a pro for one shot and hit the green! Tuff up and down from any of the bunkers.
