Designed by William Bell, Sr. in 1957. Both Torrey Pines North & South courses are home of the Farmers Insurance Open PGA Golf Tournament played in the first week of February. Both 18-hole courses (North and South courses are very scenic with beautiful ocean views). Torrey Pines signature hole is located on the North course on hole #6. The South course is the more challenging of the two and hosts the final round of the Farmer’s Insurance Open as well as the 2008 & 2021 U.S. Open Championship Tournaments.
