2021 UNDERTOW CHARITY GOLF CLASSIC IS FEBRUARY 2, 2021 AT TORREY PINES NORTH

First of all, we would like to thank the City of San Diego’s Golf Course Management team for giving us the green light to host the Undertow Charity Golf Classic in 2021.

To protect the health and safety of everyone involved, we will be abiding by current COVID-19 protocol which may include (but not limited to) no gathering, practicing social distancing, and requiring masks/facial coverings.
  • Instead of a shotgun start, tee times will be assigned starting at 7:30am with final foursome at 11:51am, ensuring that players finish during daylight
  • Shamble format: Team selects the best drive among them after teeing off, then all four play their own ball from that position on the hole. Scorekeepers will record the gross score. Handicaps will be collected during registration. There will be a choice of electronic or paper scoring
  • Boxed meals will be provided at check-in in lieu of on-course food stations
  • Players should be prepared to bring and carry their own water bottles
  • There will not be an awards ceremony, instead, tournament and contest results will be posted on Facebook and on our website that night
  • Final player rules will be announced 48 hours prior to the event
We can't wait to welcome you to beautiful Torrey Pines, register now to save your spot!

Why "The Undertow"?
During the CBS broadcast of the 2018 Wells Fargo Championship at Quail Hollow Club, announcer Gary McCord made notice that Hole No.'s 2, 3 and 4 on The North Course played among the third most-difficult on the PGA TOUR for the season (that includes the South Course).

At that point, course management decided to have fun with the interesting stat and create a naming contest. "The Green Mile," "The Bear Trap," and "The Blue Monster" now have some company. The North Course’s newly-famed three-hole stretch was named "The Undertow" by San Diego resident Peter Look, who prevailed in a summer 2018 contest featuring over 400 entries to grace the difficult holes with an appropriate moniker.

Now, you can be a part of history by playing in the first event that pays homage to the name.
