Approved: By the San Diego City Council, $15 million for improvements to the city’s municipal golf facilities, including Torrey Pines’ South Course, site of the 2021 U.S. Open, The San Diego Union-Tribune reported. Work also will be done to Torrey Pines’ North Course, Balboa Municipal’s 27-hole facility and Mission Bay, an executive course. The courses will remain open during the work, which will focus on irrigation, drainage, cart paths, bunkers and trees.
