I went to a wedding at the Crossing and I thought it was a nice place for friends and family to gather. The facilities were well kept and comfortable. I thought the staff were nice too. I was disappointed in the view. I expected beautiful ocean views, but that California smog ruined that, even on a beautiful spring evening.

Challenging course due to elevation changes and undulating greens. Not for beginners. A beginner would not enjoy negotiating this terrain. But as one gets better, this is a good course to test your skills hitting on uneven lies, up hills, down hills, blind spots, over massive scrub brush, etc. Easy & fun par 3s.The good news, not many water hazards....

We thought this course would be good for our first outing after a long Minnesota winter. We were wrong. It's tough! Very hilly. We had a really hard time without GPS on our cart. Not sure it's worth $70 per person (Seniors).

The Crossings at Carlsbad is a golf course/golf club that offers a full service restaurant. The clubhouse is very upscale and has a full service menu for both lunch and dinner. Our server, Christian, was very friendly and efficient. We ordered the Crossings Burger and the Cobb Salad. The burger was a mix of ground chuck and short rib. It... More

Attended a wedding and a reception here for my cousin and it was beautiful. Wait Staff was great the whole time and was very helpful. Their wedding reception overlooks the beach and has some of the best pictures I've ever seen taken for a wedding!

While there is a golf course here, today's visit was for the Sunday Brunch. (FYI - The course is awesome!) We made a reservation, and I highly suggest you make one too.

This is a very good course but the management cares little for the player experience. The first time we played we had to skip the 18th hole because our dog had been alone for 6 hours due to pace of play. The carts have GPS but the pro shop does NOTHING to manage pace of play. Today we played, teed... More

Convenient location in Carlsbad with great ocean views from the Club House and Golf Course. Lego Land is a stone's throw away, across the street. The restaurant offers a terrific Sunday brunch. Meeting rooms are available for Corporate meetings or other type of gatherings. Worth a visit.
