    Torrey Pines Golf Course is a 36-hole municipal facility in Southern California, owned and operated by the city of San Diego located in the suburb of La Jolla about 20 minutes north of Down town San Diego.

Fog, rain and wind often sweep the seaside courses making it hard to second guess the playing conditions. Both courses at Torrey Pines were opened in 1957, the layouts and designs were carried out by William Bell, Sr.

    Torrey Pines Golf Course consists of two parkland golf courses, the North Course and the more famous South Course. Both courses are open to the public and built overlooking the Pacific Ocean on coastal bluffs; both courses offer ocean views, and deep canyons cutting through both of the courses. The courses are surrounded by state-protected areas, including the Torrey Pines State Reserve park and Torrey Pines State Beach. The South course is the more challenging of the two and hosts the final round of the Buick Invitational.

Rees added 28 bunkers and added 500 yards to the South course courses,it now stands at 7607 yards in length, from the championship tees and provides a real test of golf. The Torrey Pines, South Course will host the prestigious 2008 United States Open Championship. Torrey Pines Golf Course with the distinction of being the only municipal golf course ever selected by the USGA to host a US Open Golf Tournament.
