About Us

Who are we and why do we do what we do?

A message from CGC owners Susan Roll and Dana Chaiken...

We have owned and operated the Carlsbad Golf Center as an independent facility since January 30, 2003. (Susan has been a golf professional since the early 1990's and Dana is an amateur player with experience in sports marketing.)

Before we purchased the golf center, we were often frustrated as golf consumers because neither one of us could find a local golf shop that met our needs. We simply couldn't find somewhere that felt like "our personal pro shop." There was no one location to test and be fit for an extensive number of clubs on the driving range or that had a decent selection of performance apparel or that could quickly re-grip a club or that seemed to be staffed by actual golf professionals.

There wasn't a practice center we could find locally where the public could feel like they were at a private club. We didn't think it was too much to ask to for a practice facility to have golf balls with dimples, a decent grass putting green or even a bunker to hit full shots.

So, we decided to team up our varied backgrounds of experience and create that special place where we would want to shop and practice. And, along the way, we gathered an amazing team of golf professionals who love what they do and are knowledgeable in every aspect of game enjoyment: clubfitting, teaching and merchandise.

We also make a conscious effort to be a good community partner. Over the years we've become the practice facility for various groups including the North County Junior Golf Association, local high schools, the Golf Academy of America and the Special Olympics. We appreciate the support of our customers in the success of our participation in Toys for Tots, American Red Cross Blood Drives and Canned Food Drives for local food banks. We're also conscious about recycling bottles and cans as well as being environmentally kind.

The goal for our entire team, both in the pro shop and on the range, as well as all the instructors who teach here is simply to help you love the game of golf as much as each of one of us does. We strive to provide you with the best service and most extensive inventory, an enjoyable shopping and practice experience and, most of all, with a place to call your personal pro shop and practice facility.

We are always striving to improve your experience at our facility, so if you have an comments or suggestions, please do not hesitate to call the pro shop at 760-720-GOLF (4653) or This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it
