Details About Handicaps
As we have continued to talk about handicaps, the competition of our Opens has gotten better and better. The last three Opens have been the three closest top-to-bottom of all time! In 2020 we encourage everyone to have an official handicap (as the USGA and World Handicap systems have now united). For most members, we are recommending one of two methods to receive a handicap:

1) Simply maintain your GHIN handicap through your local club.

2) Enroll in Myscorecard.com online compliant handicap service.

To see how Myscorecard works, go to the link, select the Features menu and click option "Handicap Lookup", and search for the user name trevere to see Trever's current index.

If you decide to use this, let the handicap committee know so we can properly monitor your handicap.

Lodging Options

Since Torrey Pines is a "true muni" course, there are only two ways to book it ... calling a public phone number X days in advance and taking whatever tee times you can get, or by staying at the Torrey Pines Lodge. So ... the estimate for Torrey Pines Lodge and this itinerary = $1,965 per person, which covers lodging (double occupancy) and all golf.

YOUR Travel Itinerary

Arrival = Wednesday, September 16
We will all want to roll into La Jolla by 6:00 p.m. - preferrably closer to late afternoon timeframe. Assuming most likely flight options are into San Diego, it would be best to have the SoCal locals coordinate with flyers for airport runs. And remember that while there are plenty of west coast flights to San Diego, clubs fly free on Southwest Airlines.

Departure = Sunday, September 20
Wherever you are flying through, keep in mind that we will be done with golf at 1:00 p.m. ... ish. The San Diego Airport is not a tough drive on Sunday afternoon, so flights in the late afternoon/early evening should be good.
