crossings-golf-lodgeThe Crossings at Carlsbad Highlights: The Crossings is named for the five bridges that cross canyons spread over 1,000 acres of coastal terrain. The Crossings provides panoramic views of the Pacific Ocean in a beautiful natural setting and is located on a rolling hillside next to LEGOLAND.

The Wall Street Journal calls it one of the swankiest municipal golf courses.
