Presidio Golf Course, San Francisco

3.7
#57 of 65 in Outdoors in San Francisco
The prestigious Presidio golf course opened for public play in 1895 and has quickly gained a reputation as one of the nation's top public courses. Located just minutes from downtown San Francisco, this 18-hole course plays 6,500 yards of challenging golf winding through beautiful Eucalyptus and Monterey Pine trees in The City's trademark hills.

Designed with tight fairways and strategically placed bunkers, this 18-hole "hilly" golf course offers a unique challenge for golfers of all abilities. Orginally designed by Robert Wood Johnstone, the course was expanded in 1910 by Johnstone in collaboration with Wiliam McEwan and redesigned and lengthened in by the British firm of Fowler & Simpson in 1921.

  • If you go here by taxi ask them to take you to the Presidio Cafe as that is where the pro shop is. The shop is well stocked and the staff were very accommodating. We received a complimentary gift bag ...  more »

  • First time here. Very challenging course. The entire course is played on a hill so you are almost never hitting on flat ground. Lots of trees so even though not the longest course, a challenge for any...  more »

  • This is my local spot but it's a great course. Large cypress trees, with great conditions. Everything about this course is well kept. Sign up for the email distro and keep up-to-date on all their events. They have a medium sized putting green and a smaller sized chipping area. No bunkers to practice on. The driving range has limited space and therefore restricted distance golf balls. The range is on the edge of a hill and you can't see your ball land anywhere from 50-100 yards. That's the only downfall.
  • Great place to be a wedding photographer. The staff were helpful and the sunset was beautiful. The tent for the rain was pristine, warm, and happy. The food was terrific but I'm not sure if the caterer was in house. Lots of great options for spaces to customize for your event.
  • Beautiful golf course with plenty of challenges. Amazing that this course is nestled in the rolling hills near the Golden Gate Bridge.
  • Challenging course and well maintained. Every hole goes up, down or right. Nothing is flat, good exercise for uphill and downhill swing practice. Loose your handicap on each hole if you are unstable.
  • Very good course in the middle of an amazing park!
