Torrey Pines Golf Course is a 36-hole municipal facility just outside San Diego, Calif., built on land sitting along oceanside cliffs overlooking the Pacific Ocean. There are two courses at Torrey Pines, the North Course and South Course, and both are used annually during the PGA Tour Farmers Insurance Open.

The South Course is the more-famous and more-highly regarded of the two tracks, and hosted the 2008 U.S. Open. The South Course is the one pictured in this photo gallery.

When you are finished checking out this gallery, read our profile of Torrey Pines.

Above is an aerial view of the South Course at Torrey Pines. The two golf courses at Torrey Pines are San Diego municipal courses and sit on a piece of land overlooking the Pacific Ocean and adjacent to Torrey Pines State Reserve park and Torrey Pines State Beach.

The South Course, pictured in the photos in this gallery, stretches to 7,607 yards for daily play, and from the tips has a course rating of 78.1 and slope rating of 143.
