Milestone Comes on the Heels of Property-Wide Renovation at Park Hyatt Aviara
Aviara Golf Club—Southern California’s only coastal designed Arnold Palmer signature golf course—honors its 30th anniversary.
Since opening in 1991, the golf course has been recognized for hosting the LPGA Kia Classic professional golf tournament for eight times in the last nine years. The annual tournament takes place in March with this past year featuring the top three golfers on the Rolex Women’s World Golf Rankings: Jin Young Ko of Korea; Sei Young Kim of Korea; and Nelly Korda of the United States. Additionally, the resort offers the Aviara Golf Academy by Kip Puterbaugh, which is the longest running golf school in the Western United States featuring one-, two- and three-day golf schools.
“This marks an exciting time for Park Hyatt Aviara as we take a moment to reflect on the success we’ve experienced the past 30 years,” said Renny Brown, director of golf. “Our golf course has remained a top destination for golfers, and we’re thrilled to be celebrating this anniversary, with many more to come.”
Named by Golf Digest and Golf Magazine as one of the best resort golf courses in America, and by Golfweek as the best courses you can play in California, Aviara Golf Club overlooks the Batiquitos Lagoon nature preserve in beautiful Carlsbad, California. Aviara Golf Club features a memorable layout par 72 over 18 holes and 7,007 yards uniquely sculpted around rolling hillsides, native wildflowers, and plenty of bunker and water challenges.
The golf course is part of the Park Hyatt Aviara Resort, a Forbes Five-Star and AAA Five Diamond resort, which reopened October 2020 following a $50 million total transformation. Visitors experience an elevated guestroom and suite product, new restaurant and bar concepts, 80,000 square feet of upgraded indoor and outdoor meeting and event spaces, as well as a dramatic redesign to the resort’s striking lobby entrance, spacious public areas, and new pool offerings, now with seven distinct pool experiences.
Inspired by the famed golfer himself, the renovations include a new 1,640-square-foot, Arnold Palmer golf-inspired suite located on the first floor, featuring a one king bed, separate living room, dining area that seats eight, two full bathrooms, and two large furnished walk-out terraces. The suite’s unique design elements include details of the Arnold Palmer signature-designed Aviara Golf Course and a putting green on the patio where guests can perfect their golf game from the comfort of their room. Additional touches include framed score cards that hold the course record, and books written by Arnold Palmer. This is a specialty suite with the option to connect to a two-bedroom suite.
To add to the golfing experience, the resort offers two Topgolf Swing Suites, an immersive social experience offering guests of all ages access to a premier lounge while enjoying casual fare, refreshing beverages and lively music. With a floor-to-ceiling screen and a selection of virtual games, the Topgolf Swing Suites deliver a one-of-a-kind simulation that’s fun for golf enthusiasts and non-golfers alike. Guests can also enjoy the lounge’s billiards table or catch a game on one of the many televisions.
