My hubby is a golf nut & so we had to make a stop on our way to L.A. While he did not have a tee time booked, we looked around & dropped a paycheck in the Pro Shop. Beautiful course which I'm sure my hubby will plan to return & play one day.

Local Info! 2 courses. South is where the US Open was played and more difficult. North is a little more friendly but still a good test of golf. Both have spectacular views. Lots of tourists with varying abilities. Expect delays BUT bring a camera and enjoy the experience. TIP: Weekday twilight is good time to play. Green fees are less... More

We were only in San Diego for a few days so did not get the chance to golf but we stopped by the golf course to see it. What amazing breathtaking views of the ocean. We arrived just in time for sunset and it was beautiful. Course looked well manicured and was busy for a Monday. Cannot comment on the... More

The South course is the home of the PGA's Farmers Insurance Tournament and it easy to see the greatest of this course but due to over play and over seeding the course was in sub par shape. As you would expect it also plays very slow!!

A BEAUTIFUL, ocean-side golf course dotted with "Horton Hears a Who" trees (Dr. Seuss lived here), nice greens and fairways and friendly staff. We played North course due to price but I can't imagine South being much nicer!

One word - beautiful! The fairways are wide, but lots of hills to trudge up. Nice pro-shop. Grounds around the course well kept.

Expensive for an "out of towner" but the South course is beautiful. The locals have it good, you see the water on almost every hole. Liked the North too and got a reduction in the green fee since the greens were just top dressed & aerated.

Stopped here on our way to a day in La Jolla! My husband is a golf fanatic so wanted to visit the course, golf shop and have lunch. It is a beautiful course, very well kept and very busy and I understand it is a municipal course. A few purchases from the golf shop later we had a great lunch... More

I stayed at the hotel right on the Torrey Pines Golf course and it was incredible. I've never seen such green grass in my life. They were getting ready for a PGA tour the next weekend so it was really busy. It's right on the water and very peaceful. I wish I could live in that area. It's perfect.
