Where To Play Golf In San Diego


For prestige and beauty, it’s hard to beat Torrey Pines, site of the epic 2008 U.S. Open (which Tiger Woods won on a broken leg) and the future site of the championship, in 2021. You will walk in the footsteps of many a famous golfer at this municipal track, named after the rare native pine that grows wild along this stretch of coastline. It’s pricey ($229 on weekends) and requires some advance planning to procure a tee time (go to sandiego.gov for details), but it’s worth it for the magnificent views, top conditions and championship history. Plus, there might not be a prettier par 3 than Torrey South’s No. 3, which overlooks the Pacific from its cliff-top perch.
