Aviara Four Seasons

7100 Four Seasons Point
Carlsbad, CA

The Aviara Golf Club at the Four Seasons Resort Aviara, took nearly a decade to build because of ecological concerns, but golfing enthusiasts soon found out a little patience made the wait worthwhile. Since opening in 1991, this Arnold Palmer design has received much acclaim from some of the industry’s most respected publications. The Golfer Magazine rated the resort among the top 100 in the world in its 1999 travel issue.

Palmer realized he had to design a gem to keep up with the other famous golf courses in the area just north of San Diego, like the La Costa Resort and Spa, also in Carlsbad. Nestled into 180 acres winding through three valleys, Aviara is also adjacent to the Batiquitos Lagoon, a wildlife paradise. Developers took care to preserve this environmentally sensitive wetland, which is home to more than 130 species of shorebirds, waterfowl and a variety of natural vegetation.
