Aviara Golf Club in Carlsbad is San Diego’s only golf course designed by Arnold Palmer. Named the #1 golf resort in Southern California by the readers of Condé Nast Traveler, and recognized as one of the country’s best resort golf courses by Golf Digest and Golf Magazine.

We are pleased to announce Aviara Cares, a comprehensive sustainability initiative minimizing the resort’s environmental footprint, spanning updates to the property’s golf, culinary and housekeeping efforts. Coinciding with the high eco-conscious standards of Hyatt World of Care, Aviara Cares reduces energy, water risks, emissions, and waste at the resort, ultimately furthering our pledge to sustainable practices and environmental stewardship.

As part of this sustainability program, Aviara Golf Club recently completed the re-grassing of all 18 holes with Tiff Tuff, a warm season, Bermuda grass which does not require overseeding and therefore lessens chemical inputs. This investment reduces water usage by 20 percent annually and provides golfers with more consistent playing conditions year-round.
