The South Course

The South Course at Torrey Pines, on the hills of Torrey Pines Mesa in La Jolla, California, is known for having hosted the Buick Invitational, a PGA Tour event, annually since it debuted in the Fifties. The layout, by the lesser known but quite skilled designer William Bell Sr., is one of two courses—the other being the fine but less demanding North Course—that are open to the public at this facility not far up the coast from San Diego. The management set its mind to attracting the US Open, so Rees Jones was brought in to do some major renovations in 2001, and sure enough, the 2008 US Open was played at Torrey Pines South, and won by none other than Tiger Woods. Indeed, some may even find themselves preferring this course to Pebble Beach; it certainly does offer some fine views of the Pacific.

played South Course a couple of times w my son who lives in San Diego. seems like being with him gets you a tee time easily. interesting long course with good greens and some fantastic views. the golf staff is also very capable if you need a tune up. the only blemish is the incredibly expensive half way shack - bring your own food and drinks - I think 2 dogs and 2 waters were $20. I stayed at the Lodge at Torrey Pines, which if you can swing it is 4 star. the crazy thing is this place gets shelled with play but the greens were still very good,

I played both courses and will do it again. Compared to Pebble Beach reasonable rates.
