Overlooking a pristine, endless coast of the Pacific Ocean, the iconic Torrey Pines Golf Course owned by the city of San Diego sits amidst picturesque cliffs. Standing at an elevation of 380 feet, this municipal public facility is popular among players of all aptitudes because greens are large, slow and rounds are long so that you play with ideal pace. There are 2 idyllic courses at the venue, the North and South ones, having smoothly carpeted grasslands along the ocean offering breathtaking views to those finishing their rounds.
The course has an eminent history, founded by William F and has been redesigned with a contemporary outlook in the 2000s. Torrey Pines is ideal for visiting when the world-famous PGA TOUR’s Farmers Insurance Open is held, gathering lively crowds and entertainment. There are exquisite greens, undulating fairways and practice bunkers for beginners. There are quite a few excellent 5-star accommodation options with modern amenities nearby like Hilton La Jolla, Hotel Fairmont and Rancho Valencia Resort and Spa. Several well-stocked equipment stores selling merchandise, shoes and GPS-operated golf carts are spread across the property. You can explore the reserve park on-premises and enjoy watching the aquatic wildlife.
