La Costa resort celebrates new course renovation with special package offer

The fabled La Costa Resort and Spa in Carlsbad, Calif., is celebrating the renovation of its two golf courses in the new Signature Golf & Spa Package that includes two rounds of golf or two spa treatments (or one of each), with overnight accommodations.

Guests can be among the first to play La Costas recently completed golf course renovation project, which includes the new Champions Course (formerly the North Course) and modifications to the South Course. The golf course project is part of a $50 million total resort renovation, encompassing guest rooms, public spaces, pools and dining establishments.

The Spa at La Costa also has undergone a complete interior re-design of its legendary Spanish-colonial style haven and now offers a new treatment menu, as well as a Reflexology Path, Zen-like herb garden and expanded function spaces. Recognized as one of the nations top spas, the Spa at La Costa offers 28,000 square feet of indoor space and a 15,000-square-foot outdoor courtyard.

The Champions Course is once again a true reflection of the resorts rich golf history and tradition. While embracing the integrity of the original Dick Wilson design (Wilson is one of the games most underrated course architects), challenged PGA Tour players for more than 40 years, the completely renovated layout captures La Costas timeless appeal. New features include strategically designed and repositioned bunkers, refined fairway routing, expanded native grass areas, natural wetlands and subtle elevation changes that contribute to a challenging and engaging golf experience. Four holes on the Champions Course are completely new designs.

The Signature Golf & Spa Package is offered beginning Nov. 11, 2011, with rates starting at $501 per night, based on double occupancy (not including taxes and $22 daily resort charge).
