2008 became a year forever in the memory books when Tiger Woods took a final perfect swing that sealed Torrey Pines’ rank among the country’s best golf courses. Tears fell, fans cheered, and golfers danced with victory as a single eagle putt created an eminently endearing moment in golf history. In addition to having some of the world’s most engaging courses, San Diego also has many of the most scenic. The Farmers Insurance Open (formerly the Buick Invitational) is played here each year at Torrey Pines and there are more than 80 other courses with sprawling greens from north to south. Waterfront to hillside, rustic to manicured, challenging to playable — a wide range of terrains are made possible by legends like Arthur Hills, William Bell and Ted Robinson. A year-round climate that is warm, dry and tropical makes San Diego a favorite golf destination unlike any other.
