There are many things that make a golf course beautiful. But there are two essential things that course designers strive to achieve in creating an ideal golf vacation destination: great layout and an even better scenery. If they have come up with a layout that is both interesting and challenging, all the while capturing the best views their course locations could offer, they know they have done a great job. The Crossings at Carlsbad in San Diego is an example.
Located perfectly, the Crossings at Carlsbad has both accessibility and stunning views. It is only a good half hour drive from downtown San Diego and about a mile from the Pacific ocean. But the good things about this golf vacation hotspot do not end there. The challenging and unique canyon terrain and the risk-reward game give golfers a good test of skills. The course also serves as a haven not only for the lovers of the sport but of the natural wildlife found in the area as well. As much as the management maintains the course conditions to a world-class quality, it also works to keep nature at its best. The Greg Nash design that stretches to 6,835 yards has all of its 18-holes sitting on a thousand acres of perfection from man’s collaboration with nature.
The Crossings at Carlsbad, unsurprisingly, is a favorite among golfers for golf trips and golf publications for awards. It has the highest ranking among the San Diego courses, and was voted by GOLF Magazine readers as among the Top 10 Courses You Can Play. That, among many others of course. Needless to say, the course is beyond ideal, it even borders on perfect.
