Presidio Golf Course, San Francisco

4.1
#64 of 102 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.

  • Well kept. Staff very courteous. Crowded but still moved along. 4 and 1/2 hours for the round of golf. Not bad.
  • Play here a lot. Staff wonderful across the board. Inside clubhouse, bar and on the course. Including maintenance. This is a very underestimated course. Can be super cold and foggy. Bring or buy a bright ball. Have fun cos you will.🤗
