San Diego trip 4th of July week

8 posts in this topic

I will be going to San Diego Monday through Friday 4th of July week. I plan on hitting Torrey pines that week. I have a question for people with the resident card. Your cost is $61 a round. Do you get the same rate for a guest? If so, is there anybody that wants to play a round that week for free? I will pay for your round. $121 for two people vs $183 for one just makes more sense. And it would give me somebody to play with. I will have time one round while I'm there so I want to make sure it counts. Torrey pines is on my list of courses to play.

As far as I know, the resident card doesn't extend to guests. You could call Torrey Pines to double check.

As a birthday gift from my wife, we're flying to SD to visit my sister and play a round at Torrey that same week.  The website says residents get a better rate but can only make reservations 1 week in advance or camp out for early times.  Non-residents pay more, but can make reservations 90 days in advance.

My question for the San Deigeons among us:  North or South?

I say South.  It's longer, harder, more famous.

North is easier, shorter and still quite pretty.  Especially from the 6th tee...

But if you want to watch the US Open in 2021 or highlights of '08, and say "Hey, I birdied that hole!  Why can't you, Tiger?!?!?!" then you gotta play the South. :beer:

P.S.  Pretty sure it's "San Diego-ites."  Might also be "San Diego-Uns" but I'm not totally sure. :-P

Thanks for the advice!

And you're right, it would like to watch the US Open, or Farmer's and see the same holes I played.  I think I'll go with that.

I think Ron Burgundy settled on "San Diegans." :beer:

  • 01:11:20 Ed, let's hold on. Let's count to 10.

  • 01:11:23 That's a rash decision. ls this about something else?

  • 01:11:27 Ed, there's 300 very angry San Diego-ites.

  • 01:11:31 San Diego-ins. San Diego-uns.

  • 01:11:34 - San Dieg-ons. - San Diegans.

But you can do that with either course ... assuming you watch Thursday or Friday. :beer:

    • New GolfNow layout is Awful
      Every customer is different, some know exactly what they want and expect you to execute their vision.  Others want more consultation and input from the designers as to what others are doing or what trends are on the rise.  Another factor is maintenance, how much time is required to keep the site updated, can the business maintain the site on their own or must that be outsourced, etc. There are numerous reasons why a business would redesign their site, such as; The business has undergone some fundamental changes that they want reflected in a new website The cost of maintaining the current site is too high The provider of their data has changed the feeds or discontinued certain elements of the data. Users have complained about how the site works The site is outdated or dependent on outdated technology or servers. They want a site that is "responsive" meaning the same site works on desktop, tablet and smart phones. I've never done work for a business that said they want to make their site worse, less user friendly, less functional or more frustrating for their customers to use.  My guess is that given the popularity of sites like GolfNow, that some standards were created for how the data would be distributed and updated to the GolfNow like websites from the different courses to make it easier for them all to get the data (the same thing happened to the airline industry).  The change to the backend likely warranted the changing of the front end as well. In some cases compromises must be made.  I've redesigned sites that were written in HTML, PHP and jQuery which are not easy for end users to maintain and update themselves.  The client wanted a responsive site that they could maintain easily on their own.  I suggested we develop the new site using Joomla, Drupel or WordPress as those platforms provided them with everything they requested.  They ultimately ended up with a WordPress site that was responsive and very functional but because of the platform certain nuances of the old site were lost. Users initially complained but we worked out some issues and over time they appreciated the more frequent updates and ability to easily view the site on their iPads and cell phones.  Website redesign like life is full of compromises.
    • Shorts On the PGA Tour (Updated 2013, 2016)
      I don't think the PGA Tour's stance on this has only to do with "tradition." Ultimately the PGA Tour is a member-run organization. If they strongly wished for shorts, they'd vote to allow it. That they've not done so speaks volumes, IMO.
    • Donald Trump for president?
      I heard something on the radio along the lines of New Hampshire having "super delegates" that will vote for Clinton regardless of yesterday's vote.  As far as Trump goes, my bottom line  is that he simply is not electable. Moderates, women and minorities aren't going to vote for that guy.    
    • Donald Trump for president?
      Just to clarify, I consider myself a committed Trump supporter, I like him. I am not a conservative in the traditional sense. Like anyone, I don't agree with every position that my candidate stands for, I do, however, agree on his main points re: immigration. 
    • Putting downhill vs uphill (2x distance of downhill length) poll
      Yep.  The first hole at TPC looks like they buried an elephant.  I lost a playing partner on that green. The course in the above posts I believe is The Bayou Club.  Checking tonight.  Not sure the hole number yet, but the green is next to the road.  If that's the course, I'll work out the hole number.  Their scorecards don't show hole layout, so I'll have to walk through the holes on the card. BTW, there is (or was) a hole at the Corry Pa muni (North Hills) that could have a 225 foot putt.  That's over 70 yards!  They don't make like that any more! Plus, the Links of Lake Bernadette has a shared green.  Haven't played there in a while, but as I recall the green was "U" shaped with bushes in the "U".  Had to putt to the bottom of the "U", then back on the other side.  Need to Google that later. St Andrews has shared greens but I don't recall any being like that.
