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

As part of Aviara Golf Club’s continued focus on sustainability, beginning in April, the course will embark on a project to re-grass our cool season roughs with a warm season Bermuda grass. During this time, two holes will be closed at a time to complete the work in three week increments. All grass being replaced will be sodded, so holes will re-open immediately for play once completed. Once the project is completed in early October, Aviara will eliminate the need to overseed our golf course again and will be able to provide golfers with a more consistent and better playing conditions year round. With a non-overseeded golf course, we will also be more environmentally friendly with less chemical inputs being applied to the course and reducing our water usage by approximately 20%. Golfers will still be able to play 18 holes through this project, as our two par 5’s on the front nine will be modified into a short par 4 and par 3 each, thus creating 18 holes of golf. For specific questions and to find out more about our exciting project, please contact our golf shop at 760-603-6900 for details.
