Dynamic Duos

San Diego and its desert backyard are perfect getaways for adventures on and off the green. Whether you want to golf and gamble, get pampered post putting, or trail-blaze after teeing off, there’s a glorious golf escape for every taste and whim.

 

Swing & Spa

Omni La Costa Resort & Spa

Golf: Carlsbad’s premier resort boasts two famous golf courses that have hosted 37 PGA tours and myriad icons from Billy Casper to Tiger Woods. A multi-million-dollar redesign and restoration have enhanced the play and beauty of Omni La Costa’s Champions and Legends courses.

Spa: This world-class spa has its own private pool scene, meditative labyrinth, cascading waterfall showers, garden café, and impressive menu of treatments—from hot-stone massage to vitamin D facials.

Stay: Check into one of the 607 guest rooms or spacious villas, then enjoy the adults-only infinity pool or the slides and fountains at the family pool. There’s yoga at The Chopra Center, fitness classes, patio dining, kids’ clubs, tennis, and boutique shopping, too.

 

Golf & Gaming

Sycuan Golf Resort

Golf: This East County retreat wows golfers with 54 holes of Ted Robinson-designed golf featuring tree-lined fairways, dramatic mountain vistas, elevation changes, manicured landscapes, and undulating greens.

Game: Endless entertainment awaits at the 24-hour casino, which features 2,000 reel and video slots, table games, bingo, and a 16-table poker room. Enjoy a comedy show or concert at the 457-seat Sycuan Live & Up Close theater.

Stay: The expansive resort has 100 stylish rooms, a relaxing spa, the Echo Lounge for libations, and Red Tail Grill for steaks on the patio overlooking the fairway.

 

Golf & Hiking

La Quinta Resort & Club

Golf: La Quinta Resort & PGA WEST is home to five fantastic championship courses designed by legends Pete Dye, Jack Nicklaus, and Greg Norman.

Hike: Just steps from the resort, hikers can explore the desert landscape on well-marked trails. From family friendly flat terrain to strenuous mountain treks, there’s a scenic adventure for every level.
