I found a great review of Torrey Pines South that I thought I would share. This guy has a good take on the South Course. Make sure to checkout his other articles on shutfacegolf.com
The San Diego, California area has always been known for its military presence, and during World War II the land that both Torrey Pines Golf Courses sit on today was a camp used for training anti-aircraft artillery replacement specialists. It was called Camp Callan and it was torn down after the war ended. At this time a special election dictated that the land would be used for a public golf course. In the 50s William Bell laid out the golf course routing you (mostly) see today, however, Bell never saw his work finished as he died before a putt was ever holed at either course. The South Course that I discuss in this post was redesigned by Rees Jones around the year 2000 in hopes of landing a major tournament, which it did when it hosted the 2008 U.S. Open won by Tiger Woods.
