California's golf and hospitality communities are extremely energized by the incredible level of interest and excitement that is being generated around the 2008 U.S. Open Golf Championship (June 12-15, 2008), returning to California for the first time in eight years. The 2008 U.S. Open will also make its debut at the absolutely picturesque Torrey Pines Golf Course (South Course). Torrey Pines is a high-quality public course, located in the San Diego suburb of La Jolla, situated on the costal bluffs overlooking the Pacific Ocean. The course boasts incredibly breathtaking ocean views, a dramatic picturesque setting, in addition to offering some of the most challenging golf to be played in the country.
San Diego is expected to roll out the "red carpet" to accommodate the 40,000+ fans that are expected to attend each day of the U.S. Open. This high profile event is expected to infuse millions of dollars of revenue into the local economy. San Diego officials predict that the 2008 U.S. Open at Torrey Pines will even out-perform past Super Bowls, and become the single most economically profitable sporting event ever hosted by the City of San Diego.
It has been 60 years since Southern California has hosted the U.S. Open; and, the business community has certainly robustly embraced this opportunity. Sales records for corporate hospitality surrounding the event are already being smashed, even though the event is still more than one year away. The business community has truly embraced the opportunity by systematically snapping up corporate hospitality spaces, as well as setting gross dollar sales records for corporate hospitality facilities.
Some of America's largest corporations are now faithful followers of the U.S. Open, regardless of its location, however San Diego maintains an extra special "appeal". In addition to the appeal of the U.S. Open; Torrey Pines and the San Diego area are also "ultimate destinations to visit". This will be an entertainment experience that simply cannot be achieved at other locations. 30 to 40 percent of the hospitality clients at Torrey Pines are expected to be national companies; however, there has already also been an overwhelming level of interest from local, as well as Southern California-based organizations getting involved.
Companies of all sizes utilize premiere corporate hospitality environments as a necessary tool for developing and maintaining robust client and corporate relations. Keeping your "most valuable" clients and guests satisfied should be tantamount for any organization. It provides a controlled setting in which to reward your key clients and VIP guests, as well as developing relationships with new business prospects. An event of this stature is also guaranteed to dramatically increase the "Must Play" demand to play Torrey Pines Golf Course, when visiting golfers are in the San Diego area on business or for a vacation. This is an invitation to all golfers throughout the world to come and watch the world's best golfers play a golf course that they too also can play, before and after the 2008 US Open Golf Championship. Golf Digest has ranked Torrey Pines as one of the “Top 10 PGA Courses You Can Play”, and in the “Top 100 Courses You Can Play in the US.” The views and challenges offered by the course promise to make the 2008 US Open Golf Championship an absolutely memorable event for both fans and the pros alike.
