The Lodge at Torrey Pines is located on Torrey Pines Golf Course in La Jolla, one of Southern California’s most picturesque destinations. The original property was built as a 74-room inn in 1961 and was purchased by the Evans family in 1995. In 2000, the hotel was closed, most areas of the hotel were demolished, and the property was completely redeveloped.  Reopened in early 2002, The Lodge today is a 170-room luxury hotel built in the early California craftsman style. The property includes two restaurants and lounges, a full-service spa and fitness center, extensive banquet and meeting facilities and ample outdoor recreation area with pool, whirlpool spa and cabanas. The Lodge also operates food and beverage options at Torrey Pines golf courses, beverage carts and snack bar.
The hotel received a AAA Five Diamond rating upon reopening in April 2002 and has continued to be awarded the prestigious award since then. The hotel is owned and operated by family owned and San Diego-based hospitality group Evans Hotels.

Torrey Pines offers two 18 hole golf courses, the North and South. The North and South courses were designed by William Bell Sr. and seen to their completion by William Bell Jr. in 1957. Heralded golf course architect, Rees Jones, redesigned the South course in 2001. His personal touch brought new life to the championship elements of the already challenging course. The rolling bent grass greens, sweeping ocean views, and overall boundless beauty is matched only by the history of the renowned golf destination. Torrey Pines hosts the annual PGA TOUR Farmers Insurance Open and Junior World golf tournaments. After hosting the 2008 U.S. Open (won by TIger Woods). The USGA returned to Torrey Pines again in 2021 (Jon Rahm won).

Staying at the Lodge at Torrey Pines allows SFGA access to preferred tee times. We'll play both courses, the North and South.

Del Mar Country Club

Del Mar Country Club is the exclusive private country club in Southern California.  As guests of the Lodge at Torrey Pines we have an exclusive opportunity to become members for the day and experience this lovely golf club. Tucked away in a quiet, secluded valley of Rancho Santa Fe, the Joseph Lee designed golf course at Del Mar Country Club is a fitting contrast to the oceanside layouts at Torrey Pines.  Winding around bubbling streams, crystal lakes, and cascading waterfalls, Del Mar Country Club's championship course is as mesmerizing as it is challenging. Integrated naturally into the surrounding terrain, the course unfolds with five different tee settings, ensuring an enjoyable experience for all levels of play. In addition to its engaging layout, the course's fairways and greens are noted for their impeccable surfaces. This ensures that, no matter when you step up to the tee, the playing conditions will be perfect. 

In order to provide the ultimate private club experience, Del Mar Country Club has adopted a 'NO TEE TIME' policy, so that members may show up and get started whenever they are ready – just one of the many reasons Del Mar was named "Best Private Course" by Ranch & Coast magazine.

Torrey Pines South Course

The South Course is often considered the more challenging of the two layouts at Torrey Pines due to the fact that it has hosted two U.S. Opens. It is also plays host to the final two rounds of the rounds Farmers Insurance Open. Playing the course, walking the fairways and putting the greens that so many of golf's greatest professionals have played over the years is considered a bucket list wish for many golfers. 

What makes this course unique is that San Diego county owns and operates Torrey Pines.  This means locals can play either Torrey Pines course for a low price while out-of-towners will have to pay a high green fee.  Package the experience with a stay a 5 star lodge and we hope you'll think it's worth it!

Most golfers are aware that Torrey Pines Golf Course has been a regular stop on the PGA Tour for a long time (since 1968). Many golf fans remember that history was made at Torrey Pines in 2008 when Tiger Woods won the U.S. Open and his 14th major in a playoff over 5 days of competition. And last year when Jon Rahm made a birdie on each of the final two holes to become the first U.S. Open champion from Spain and win his first major championship. Most of us have watched the pro golfers on TV as they hit their shots with the majestic Pacific ocean as a back drop. It's a wonderful setting for golf and certainly worth a visit.
