Detailed description

Aviara Golf Club is a Resort 18 hole golf course located in Carlsbad, California.

The Aviara golf course opened in 1991. The course was designed by Arnold Palmer and Ed Seay.

Aviara Golf Club offers great scenery, excellent conditions, and a fair amount of difficulty. The difficulty comes from the many uphill and downhill shots caused by 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.

Par for the course is 72. From the back tees the course plays to 7007 yards. From the forward tees the course measures 5007 yards. The longest hole on the course is # 17, a par-5 that plays to 585 yards. The shortest hole on the course is # 3, a par-3 that plays to 149 yards from the back tees. This is also one of the prettiest holes. It 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.

Watch out for # 5, a 543 yard par-5 challenge and the #1 handicap hole on the course. The easiest hole at Aviara Golf Club is # 11, a 189 yard par-3.
