Golf Course Spotlight: Torrey Pines [San Diego, CA]

Torrey Pines Golf Course located in Southern California’s beautiful city of San Diego is an incredible stretch of land that overlooks the Pacific Ocean. This course is the pursuit of perfection, and if this isn’t perfect then I don’t know what is. The course hosts The Farmer’s Insurance Open every year in late January when the tour is making it’s way through the southern states and Hawaii. However, Torrey Pines was also host of the U.S Open in 2008 and if you recall that was when Tiger Woods won his last major in one of the all-time performances while injured.

The course is great for so many reasons but one of my favorite is that average Joe’s like myself are able to play there. The golf course is located in a state park and the city of San Diego has made it open to the public to play. It’s not impossible to get a tee time and it’s not incredibly expensive to play (relatively speaking). I’ve lived in San Diego for just over a year now and have been able to play 3 times already.

If you are in the San Diego area for vacation or business I highly suggest making a tee time for Torrey. This is definitely one of the best courses in the world and the opportunity to play a course that Tiger and other legends have walked is something you don’t want to pass up. Now for you twilight golfers, Torrey is the best twilight course there is. Not only does their twilight start early, the view of the sun setting over the Pacific is something so beautiful I won’t even attempt to put it into words.

If this course isn’t on your golf course bucket list then you best be sure to pencil it in right now. And if you don’t have a golf course bucket list, can you even consider yourself a golfer?
