Featured course: Torrey Pines (South course), La Jolla (California)

US Open 2021

Torrey Pines (South course) host to the US Open Championship 2021 (17 - 20 June).
In 2008, Torrey Pines became the first course in the San Diego area (and only the second in southern California) to host a US Open Championship. This closely contested event saw Tiger Woods eventually overcome the relentless challenge of his closest-rival, Rocco Mediate. Their battle for the 2008 US Open title went to an 18-hole Monday play-off, and after that, one extra hole of sudden-death playoff.

Torrey Pines is both a municipal golf facility as well as home to a wonderfully testing and immensely scenic layout. The South course, as distinct from the also enjoyable and well-rated North, is a golf course that stands alongside the world's finest. Many holes enjoy a wonderful ocean backdrop, the par-4 12th and 14th are especially scenic. Although Pebble Beach might be the most famous of California's seaside golf courses, on a value for money basis the South course at Torrey Pines is hard to beat.
