A mere 30 miles from San Diego International Airport, the Omni La Costa Resort & Spa sets a high bar for family golf resorts. It wins a place on our Top 10 U.S. Golf Resorts for Women 2015 with two championship courses (totaling SIX sets of tees rated for women), as many as a dozen fitness classes in a day, and a head-spinning slate of “kidtopia” activities.
If you have grandkids, La Costa is the place to get time with the entire family. If you’re a busy mom longing for an unselfish vacation getaway, here’s your chance.
Of course, if you want to get away from all that, the cerebral Chopra Center, a serene spa and adult pool offer respite from “Marco Polo.”
