Presidio Golf Course

Details About This Nationally Recognized Course

The Presidio Golf Course is one of just a few within the city limits of San Francisco. This nationally recognized course is popular with both locals and visitors.

This San Francisco golf course was originally built in 1895. For almost 100 years, it was a private course just for those serving in the military. During the Presidio San Francisco renovation project in the mid-1990s, it opened to the public. Today, everyone is welcome to book a tee time.
