With pulsing electronic music that sounds lifted from Lost in Translation, the Website aggressively targets the young and comely seeking same. The lure? Dorm-style common spaces for mingling, including a glassed-in lounge with plasma-screen TV and wet bar, and an outdoor terrace with practice green. The “On the Green” package includes silly add-ons like a Clinton West putter and golf balls, but also a year of golf-specific concierge services ($250 extra, free the first year) so someone else can book your next trip to Torrey Pines.
Great or Gimmick?
Pretty much what you think: priceless if you’re mad for the game, and faintly annoying for everyone else.
