It's spring again, in San Diego that means tourists and locals alike begin to flood the beaches, the chance of rain is nearly non-existent, and athletes from all sports flock to participate in the renowned Celebrity Championship golf tournament at Omni La Costa Resort & Spa. Each year yields a different champion; in 1999 Dan Quinn the prominent NHL player took home the trophy, in 2004 NFL star Brian Kinchen proved he had the best swing, and in 2013 MLB pitcher Mark Mulder showed his athletic abilities aren't limited to baseball.
The best part about the Celebrity Championship is that any athlete from any sport can prove themselves worthy of the champion title. Are you a diehard football fan? Football legend Marshall Faulk happens to be the host of this historic event. Love baseball? Come rub shoulders with some of the biggest names in the league like MLB pitcher and 2012 champion Rick Rhoden. Maybe you’re a hockey fan, no sweat! Run into someone like NHL hall of famer Grant Fuhr on the ninth tee. The Celebrity Championship is a glorious place where your athletic idol could be right around the corner. Not to mention the celebrity players who voyage from Hollywood to participate in our event (*cough* Brian Baumgartner *cough*). There’s something for everyone at the Celebrity Championship this year at Omni La Costa Resort & Spa, don’t miss this amazing event!
