San Diego Approves Funding For Torrey Pines North Redo

Tod Leonard reported on the city council approval of a business plan for several San Diego municipal courses. Leonard wrote last week about plans for the North, co-host to the first two rounds of the Farmers Insurance Open.

The proposed business plan outlines improvements at each of the facilities over the next six years. It shows plans for $17.6 million in work at Balboa Park, including a new clubhouse; $9.8 million for improvements at Mission Bay, including a modular clubhouse and designs for a permanent structure; and $13.4 million for work at Torrey Pines. More than $8.5 million would be spent on the North Course, including the reconstruction of greens and bunkers, while the South on-course work is limited to improving drainage.

Is Phil still going to do the job? $8.5 million will do a lot of damage in the wrong hands.

8.5? That's more than the cost of two Commongrounds and 7 Wild Horses.

Sustainable golf must be a concept, yet to hit the city of San Diego.

Wait, so that's $4+ Million to be spent on improving drainage at a course that was renovated / redesigned merely 10 years ago? Can somebody fill me in as to whether that's reasonable?

I got excited for a moment there seeing Balboa Park, but if it's all going into the clubhouse instead of the course ... that would be a real shame.

About a year ago I saw a draft proposal for Balboa Park. A considerable sum was to be sunk into cart paths. I would rather see the few there now removed.

Is Phil involved? I'm sure he'll find a way. Why spend money on a new clubhouse - so brainless? Nobody really cares if its a mini-white house, a trailer or a shack. We care about the course more than anything.
