Getting outside and enjoying the sunshine and fresh air is part of many of the best things to do in San Diego today, including golfing. America’s Finest City is also home to some of America’s finest gold courses, most notably Torrey Pines Golf Course which is well-known by golfers all over the world.
Torrey Pines Golf Course is the best and most famous golf course in all of San Diego, if not all of Southern California. It has been home to several PGA and LPGA events including the 2008 US Open in which Tiger Woods defeated Rocco Mediate in a sudden death playoff. While the course is best known around the world as the scenic golf course perched on stunning cliffs above pristine San Diego beaches, locals know it as the finest public golf course in town, one that they can score a tee time on simply because they are a resident. That’s right, you don’t have to be a pro or a member to play on the same courses as Phil Mickelson, Tiger Woods, Rory McIlroy, Jordan Spieth and the like, you only have to be a San Diego resident, or friends with one. While you’re out on the links be sure to take some time to enjoy the beautiful surroundings and not be too entirely focused on your game while you’re walking and enjoying some uniquely San Diego things to do.
A trip to Torrey Pines is the perfect answer for anyone wondering what to do in San Diego today. Tee times for Torrey Pines and the other local public golf courses in San Diego can be made at the City of San Diego’s website, but you will want to plan ahead for a visit to Torrey Pines to make sure spots are still available and no major tournaments are taking place. In addition to golfing the course, Torrey Pines features a pro shop, offers golf lessons, and boasts an amazing restaurant and bar at The Lodge at Torrey Pines.
Funbassadors can share golf clubs, provide helpful pieces of advice, and secure a tee time as part of a FunGig and make some extra money while golfing on one of the world’s best courses. Funseekers can purchase a FunGig that will have them learning a new sport while walking the same courses that many of the greatest golfers in history have also played.
