Every year, Golf Magazine ranks different public and private golf courses throughout the country. Being recognized by this publication is always a great honor for golf course owners and designers alike. Last month, Golf magazine released their top 100 resorts for golfing in 2019 and two Jeffrey D. Brauer designs, Giant’s Ridge and Omni La Costa, made the list! Both courses have earned reputations for their excellent designs and playability. Brauer seamlessly weaves functionality into an organic flow that works with the terrain his courses belong to. Both courses represent his masterful comprehension of the game and the needs of the courses owners, players, and community. Below is a quick look into both of these gorgeous courses.
Located north of San Diego in Carlsbad, Omni La Costa Resort & Spa features 36 excellent holes of golf at Champions Course and Legends Course. This course offers all the excitement and beauty one could hope for, while also presenting a challenge to its players.
With gorgeous views all around, it is easy to see why Omni La Costa in California makes Golf Magazine’s Top 100 Resort list for 2019.
According to Giants Ridge’s website: “Giants Ridge has long been considered one of Minnesota’s best resort golf vacation destinations.
Year after year, national golf publications have ranked The Legend and The Quarry near or at the top of the best golf courses in the world.
In fact, Golf Digest just ranked Giants Ridge as an “Editors Choice” in 2019 as one of “The Best Golf Resorts in the Midwest.”
Golf Digest has also ranked the Quarry the #1 public course in the state and #4 overall. The Legend has ranked as the #4 public course in the state and #14 overall.
Few other golf facilities in the nation can claim more than one course in Golf Digest‘s “Top 100” list. And no other Minnesota resort offers two highly ranked courses of this caliber.”
