Torrey Pines Golf Course

Torrey Pines is a municipal layout owned by the City of San Diego on the north end of San Diego adjoining La Jolla situated on a coastal bluff overlooking the Pacific. There's two 18 hole championship courses both designed originally by William P. Bell which have been the venues for the PGA Tour's Buick/Farmers/San Diego Open, the US Open, among others. Both courses are challenging, parkland layouts over rolling, tree lined fairways featuring a myriad of sand bunkers with the constant winds of the Pacific always in play. The South Course offers more enviable views to the Pacific 100 yards below, but both are worthy of playing.

The North is generally considered more playable than the South as it traverses broad, tree lined fairways and landing zones along numerous slight doglegs with ice plant, heavy rough, or natural areas at the fairways borders. It's littered with sand bunkers along the fairways and defending the greens, but there's only one water hazard in play. It can play to 6,915 yards, 73.2/130, course/slope ratings from the tips with four shorter tees, redesigned by Tom Weiskoph.

The South course was redesigned by the "Open Doctor" Rees Jones in preparation for the 2008 US Open. It's a challenging layout with stirring coastline views where both distance and accuracy are essential and a strong short game useful. The fairways are lined with trees along numerous slight doglegs with an modest array of sand bunkers protecting the landing zones off the tee and securing the greens with water in play on the finishing hole. From the tips it will play to 7,628 yards, 78.1/143, course/slope ratings with four shorter tees.
