The Presideo is a little rough around the edges. The fairways and greens have splotches of invasive grass, and some fairways have some worn spots along the edges. Usually, the bugs me when at a course where the greens fee is north of $100. But somehow, it works. It fits the character of the course, which is lined by wild old trees, tall thick grasses, and is full of the sort of ragged bunkers you'd normally find on a Coore and Crenshaw track. The course makes the most of its remarkable elevation changes; driver is almost always the play off the tee (No. 1 is a noteable exception), but the topography usually neutralizes the long hitter's advantage (see No. 17, for example). There are also plenty of blind approach shots. A very fun, thoughtful course.

We played after about a week of rain, and only a day of sun and got caught in a brief downpour - so, I'm not going to complain about the course being soggy, which it was, but instead praise it for being as playable as it was, with surprisingly few ponds anywhere on the course. The course is a challenge for a new player like me, but I'm sure gets easier with experience and skill. Greens were slow due to the weather but well maintained, and there's no evidence of the drought that dried out this and other courses over the last few years. We also met a (probably overly) friendly coyote during our round, which was a treat. Highly recommend if you're in the City and are looking for a good round. Clubhouse food is rather good as well.

If your looking for a casual round of golf with your friends, this is a good course. On the other hand, it is definitely not a championship course due to the slow pace of play and the inconsistent conditions.

The Presidio's elevation changes from tee to green make shot accuracy paramount. Playing from the rough leaves you hitting your ball from deep grass and adding strokes. Aesthetically beautiful, the course is lined with majestic trees on each fairway. Greens are large and tilted and the fairways are wide. I love this course. Great pro shop staff and excellent 19th hole.

This course is in pretty good condition. If you don't like bad weather this is not a good course for you. Pace of play is pretty slow but there aren't any holes that create a huge back-up. The greens are pretty slow.

The greens have a lot of slopes and the course has a lot of obstacles. For an average player this is a good course. Overall the staff is very friendly.

The course is in great shape right now. It has very good fairways.

There are quite a few bunkers and they're placed very well.

First time playing Paired up at course Used cart Poor weather

Expensive BUT worth it. It was 50 degrees, windy with some of the worst fog I have ever seen and it didn't matter. I enjoyed every second of the 18 holes I played and I will definitely play it again in the near future. Beautiful course, well maintained only thing I did not like was the electronic golf carts. They only let you drive to certain spots on the course and then should shut down and make you reverse in some areas. Happened on the fairway twice and I thought I was going to be stuck. BUT, having the GPS marker on the cart was great for being able to pick the correct club every shot.

It may be only 6,500 yards or so, but there's a lot of Olympic Club in the Presidio Golf Course. When the course is good condition, as it was when I played it (greens were a little slow, though), the holes look great and there are plenty of hills. Those hills mean adding or subtracting up to two or three shots on approaches. Factor in a little wind and some difficult rough, and you've got a pretty good test. Also, play this course from the back tees, and it's all the golf most people can handle. I really love the finishing stretch, including the par-5 18th with its fairway running along an impressive grove of mature trees.

If you don't like tight tree lined courses you might want to avoid the Presidio. However, you will be missing a great golf course. The course isn't overly long but, if you stray from the fairway, the tree lined fairways can take your 250 yard drive that strays a bit and turn it into a 150 yard drive and leave you with a shot that you have to work around those same trees that snatched your golf ball from the sky. Side hill lies abound. You have to work the ball both ways to score well. If you miss playing this course you may be missing one of San Francisco's great golf courses and it has a ton of them.
