So this review is about a week late but still wanted to post it because it was a very unique round at Torrey. I showed up around 6 am hoping to walk on early but just missed getting out around 7:15 and was informed that all the tee times between then and 9 am had been paid and everyone was there but they did have an opening at 9 am for a single with another 3some. So I took it and hit the range for a bit, grabbed a coffee and just hung out and relaxed, I mean how bad is it to hang around Torrey Pines on a beautiful Saturday Morning, right. So at 8:55 I head to the 1st tee and no one is there so I wait till the group in front of me is on the green. Still no 3some, the people playing behind me are waiting so I hit my ball and start walking telling them when they guys show up to catch up to me. I get to my ball, look back and still no one there, so I hit my ball. I get up to the green and the 4some behind me (2 guys and 2 women) have teed off and are starting up the fairway. So I putt out, and par the hole.The course is in good shape, the ruff being way down but still thick and grabs your club when hitting in it. So now I am standing on the 3rd tee box by myself and I am thinking, is this some kind of weird April Fools Joke? I am thinking that the marshal is going to come out any time and tell me I screwed up somehow or make me play with either the group in front of me or the one behind. But I see no marshal so I continue to play. So I am even through 5, playing by myself and the course is in really great shape except the greens are slow, they are rolling pretty good but they sanded them recently with some fine sand that allows then to roll but slows the speed down.
I am on the 9th green, in just under 2 hours having a very good round and thinking how I can birdie 9 when her comes the Marshall, Chris. I figure well at least I got to play 9 by myself and that he will pair me up on the back 9. As he stops next to me I hear him on the radio say that he found the single. I ask him whats going on and he informs me that the 3some I was supposed to play with, teed off on #10 (the old #1) and nobody figured it out until they were well into the round. So I tell him that I am having a great time and having the best round I have probably every had, can I keep it going? Chris tells me I am on my own and have fun. I am told after 18 that I am probably the only person that has ever played 18 as a single during a normal day at Torrey Pines. I have to say I really enjoyed it, I was able to slow down and enjoy the surroundings, to be able to concentrate, and have quite round among all the other golfers on the course.
The course is in pretty good shape other the the greens being sandy which are probably already much better. Pace of play was a little over 4 hours even playing as a single. Bunkers and tee boxes are also in good shape. There were some thin spots on some of the fairways on the back nine which I was surprised to see. Overall a great round, one of which I will most probably never be able to duplicate again!
