Rare is the day in San Diego where conditions aren't perfect for a great golf game, and San Diego's course lineup takes full advantage of nature's bounty, featuring over 90 courses across the region in every imaginable setting. Considered "One of the Top 50 Golf Destinations in the World" by Golf Digest, San Diego is a trend-setter among trend-setters.
The City of San Diego Park & Recreation Department operates three municipal golf courses: Torrey Pines, Balboa Park and Mission Bay Golf Course and Practice Center.
Torrey Pines Golf Course - Complementing the world-famous Torrey Pines Golf Course is a breathtaking view of the Pacific Ocean. Home of the Buick Invitational PGA TOUR event, Torrey Pines ranks as the "best" place to golf in a readers' poll with the San Diego Union-Tribune and San Diego Magazine, as well as one of the top ten golf courses in San Diego County according to Golf Industry Online. Torrey Pines is the only municipal course in the "best course" listing for the state. Phone: 619-570-1234
