Farmers Insurance Open at Torrey Pines

Farmers Insurance Open Golf & Accommodation Experiences

Torry Pines Golf Course, San Diego, California, USA

As one of the first events of the calendar year, the Farmers Insurance Open is one of the standout events on the PGA Tour.

Every January a packed field head to Torrey Pines in California looking to make a strong start to the year ahead, while many enjoy playing as part of the ‘West Coast Swing’ which also includes the CareerBuilder Challenge and Phoenix Open.

The West Coast is packed with championship courses that you can play, so head to the brilliant Torrey Pines for the Farmers Insurance Open to see Tiger Woods and other PGA Tour regulars in action and make time for some golf of your own too.

Like the majority of tournaments on both the European and PGA Tour, the Farmers Insurance Open benefits from commercial sponsorship but to some older fans, it may be remembered as the Buick Invitational.

The tournament is played in a standard match play format over four days with a cut after the second round. In recent years winners have included Jason Day, after an epic six hole playoff against Alex Noren in 2017 and Jon Rahm the year previous. However it’s Tiger Woods who has seen the most success at the tournament with seven victories.

Torrey Pines (South Course)

Any golfing fan will know this course not only for the Farmers Insurance Open which it hosts annually but also for the 2008 US Open. Need I describe the events that occured on 16th June 2008… the South Course… Broken leg… Tiger Woods… ring a bell yet? Yes that’s right Tiger won what is now his most recent major on just one leg. Now to the course.

The layout itself is rather unique as despite being a links course it features ‘normal bunkers’, the occasional grouping of pines, pristine fairways and perfectly manicured greens. Golfers are treated to stunning vista of the Pacific Ocean with arguably the best coming from the short 3rd hole. Boasting year round sun, 18 glorious golf holes and magnificent views there aren’t many better places to play then the South Course at Torrey Pines.

"The short 3rd hole, whose green is perched on the cliff top, provides awesome vistas of the Pacific coastline. It is incredible to believe that Torrey Pines is a public facility, as it is a truly magical golfing experience."
