Golf Course Description

This resort, which was named by “GOLF Magazine” to its 1998 list of “Silver Medal Resorts,” is the only Arnold Palmer-designed course in San Diego. The layout provides great scenery, excellent conditions, and a fair amount of difficulty. The difficulty comes from the many uphill and downhill shots that are required due to the many changes in elevation. In addition, the natural vegetation that lines the fairways will add strokes to anyone who strays that way. The undulating greens are very large, fast, and extremely difficult to read. Several tee boxes and greens are elevated. The fairways are fairly wide open, but there is still a definite advantage in keeping your shots straight. Water hazards come into play on six holes. One of the prettiest holes is #3, a 149-yard, par 3, which requires a tee shot to a green that is protected by water in the front and sand bunkers in the back. This green is very difficult to two putt, particularly if the tee is back left. “GOLF Magazine” ranked Aviara 80th among the “Top 100 Courses You Can Play in the U.S.” for 1998.
