This club rates right up there with the other treasures of San Francisco - the Golden Gate Bridge, the San Francisco Golf Club, The Olympic Club, the Giants, the 49ers, etc. It's got a timeless appeal. There's no water on the course to worry about, just severely tilted greens and hilly doglegs through towering trees to test your mettle. It's so playable and enjoyable. It was a hub of activity the day I visited ... World No. 1 Lydia Ko was in town for media day as the defending champion of the Swinging Skirts LPGA Classic, which returns in April 2015 and again in 2016. A separate meeting was being held in a board room. Joe Montana, a member, was playing golf outside. Yep, just another day at one of America's best big city clubs.
