San Diego - (Dec. 3, 2012) - San Diego's PGA TOUR stop, the Farmers Insurance Open, and La Jolla Village Merchants Association have collaborated to enhance the overall fan experience at the 2013 tournament. Both organizations recognize La Jolla Village has more to offer than just its proximity to Torrey Pines Golf Course.
"There is a world-class golf course and tournament at Torrey Pines, but it is important our fans from the San Diego area and from outside the area enjoy a full, rich, and well-rounded experience during their visit. The beauty and charm of the Village combined with live music and fine dining will culminate a memorable day on the course. Our fans can then drive home or to their accommodations after the traffic has thinned-out," offered Peter Ripa, Executive Director Farmers Insurance Open.
The Farmers Insurance Open and La Jolla Village Merchants Association have joined forces to introduce an evening concert series called Haute La Jolla Nights. Haute La Jolla Nights will take place the week of the Farmers Insurance Open, Thursday, January 24 through Saturday, January 26.
