Golf courses at The Lodge at Torrey Pines
Situated on the beautiful rugged coastline, this Clifftop course offers golfers a fantastic challenge and views out to sea. The 6th hole is one of the most scenic par 3’s on the course. It plays heavily downhill and as it’s right on the coastline, the wind can play havoc with your club selection. The fantastic dog-legging par- 4 13th hole lies alongside the deep ravines that plunge their way down to the sea.
Having played host to PGA tournaments such as the Buick International, the US Open Championship and the Farmers Insurance Open, this 18-hole par-72 course provides a tough yet picturesque challenge. Most holes have an ocean backdrop- the par-4 12th and 14th are especially beautiful. The narrow fairways are lined with thick rough, punishing off-line shots.
Aviara Golf Course
Aviara Golf Club is one of the finest in San Diego. In a garden-like environment, a profusion of flowers, cascading water features, and tall eucalyptus trees adorn the holes. The well-crafted Arnold Palmer layout is home to many excellent holes that will test your game. Undulating fairways and light rough are often flanked by dense foliage. The fast, sloping greens and testing bunkering lies in wait for any wayward approach shots. Aviara is a must-play when on a golf holiday in San Diego.
