The Crossings at Carlsbad

Unrated: Well regarded course not yet visited by the Where2Golf team.

Est. 2007

The Crossings at Carlsbad is home to a championship golf course that ranks with some of the best in southern California. This open, "heathland" style layout provides a wonderful test for your all-round game, with many attractive, skilfully crafted and challenging holes to enjoy.

The Crossings was developed and is owned by the City of Carlsbad. This public course nestles among more than 1,000 acres of Carlsbad's coastal terrain and natural habitat. The mix of wetlands, sage brush and other flora, plays home to abundant and varied animal and bird life.

The Crossings at Carlsbad also features a floodlit practice centre and access to The Crossings Trail, a three-mile round-trip walking path that links with the Carlsbad's extensive Trail System. A must visit golf facility if you are in the area.

Latest Golf Course Reviews

Traigh Golf Course (pronounced "try", and meaning "beach" in Gaelic): You'll find this nine-hole seaside gem on the scenic coast road (as opposed to the more inland and quicker A830) between Arisaig and Morar. Although not on the well-beaten path of Scotland's "trophy" courses, if you are passing through this area, it's a must play.
