My wife and I are going on vacation to San Diego and I'm playing at Torrey South on Monday.
Has anyone played it? If so any advice? Things to take pictures of in the club house, questions to ask, memorable spots on the course (obviously the entire 2008 US Open), etc.
I'm excited to get out there and see it!
I played once. I took pictures of everything. I went full on tourist when i was there. I thought the best part was the veiws of the rocky cliff type walls going down to the ocean. I also loved the gliders and the military training over head. I got a fly over when I tee'd off.
Just relax and enjoy it.
I'm lucky enough to play there about twice a month and it is a great experience every time. Definitely grab a bite to eat in "The Lodge" after your round. They have good food and a great beer/wine list.
The standard "Torrey" photo is on hole #3 tee box. If it is a clear enough day you can see all of La Jolla and sometimes all the way to downtown, but you can't go wrong taking photos on nearly every hole because the backdrop is epic.
The course will probably beat you up a little bit because it is super tough, but it is in great shape right now and the greens were rolling great the last time I was out there.
I played Torrey North for the first time this past winter.
3 - worth the hype, err short and right.
4 - bitter sweet as its a really pretty golf hole but plays like a par 5
16 - first time i played it they had the stands up which was an awesome golf experience. Still a good tough par 3 regardless
18 - one of my favorite golf holes. that little pond on the left really makes you think.
The back 9 is one of the best in the game. Bring your patience!
