Great MacKenzie Layout - Excellent Value

It's a MacKenzie design - played on Masters Sunday!!
Fantastic layout. Greens are fast and break like heck.
Course is in decent shape but could be a go-to course with a bit more investment. Greens could be smoother, fairways a bit more consistent.
And...it should be faster. Four hours to play 13 holes makes it difficult to maintain rhythm once you find your swing.
Sharp Park is a wonderful value and a fun course to play.

Fun course with some challenging holes

Sharp Park is a fun course with some challenging holes.,
It is next to the ocean and normally a little windy but not today..
It is popular and today there were too many golfers and no marshalls making the golfers move faster.

Angry staff - ruined the experience

We had a mid-day tee time and we arrived to a very angry staff member. He yelled at us to check in right away (even though there wasn't anyone in sight). His poor attitude sent us off the tee box on the wrong foot. Too bad because there are some really nice holes here. Maybe think about having people working there who at least act like they want to be there. This guy obviously hates his job.

Slow Sharp

Not enough staff on hand to marshall all the kooks that play this course. Two group backup by the third hole is ridiculous...

Budget McKenzie Course

This is my quasi-home course, and perhaps have a bias for it, but for people who are willing to take some amenity concessions it's worth your time.

Pros:
-Majority of the Course was designed by Allister McKenzie, and may pay homage to the Scottish Links Style. Hole 12, 16, 17, 18 are particularly fun and memorable.
-It's walkable, which is good because you have a 20% chance of getting cart.
-It's affordable, especially if you're an SF or Pacifica Resident.

Cons:
- No driving range, however the first 4 holes have pretty wide open fairways, so it's easy to get warmed up there.
- Conditions are sub-optimal. Fairways can be inconsistent, and greens are scarred, bunkers are ok.
-Carts generally don't have working breaks, and smell like a two stroke dirtbike, but they drive very very fast. You should walk this course anyways.

Would I recommend this course? Absolutely, it's a piece of bay area history that we almost lost, due to pressure from environmentalist groups. It's a beautiful design that is fun for all levels of golfers, and is a nice walk near the ocean. It's rough around the edges, but I think there's partial intent there to keep the Fairweather golfers away.

A poor experience

1- The course has no restrooms nor drinking/eating facilities even though these are now allowed.
2- Carts are ancient gas powered vehicles and in very poor condition. Two would not accelerate out of idle and one had a broken suspension and could not steer in a straight line.
3-Cart paths were rough in places, sometimes with broken paving
4- Greens sometimes werea close cut weed with little grass.
5- Overall, showed major neglect and poor value for the high price.

A poor experience

1- No rest rooms or water fountains
2- No eating or drinking facilities even though now allowed

4- Greens were some kind of low weed and very little grass. Would not hold the ball.
5- Fairways were so-so - many bald patches
6- Price was very high for such a poor quality course
7- Design has potential but neglect is severe

Sharp Park

The course is in good shape. Fairways are big and grass is thick. Greens are is ok shape some are faster then others. Bunkers add to the challenge but the course does not frustrate you. Worth the price if you get a deal on Golfnow or similar sites. Limited carts so expect to walk the 6 miles.

Great value

Good course that could be improved with investment by owners. If CCofSF can’t make a world class destination, let another city or developer improve this gem. Staff was great!

Good moderately challenging course

This is a flat course that is easy to walk. The tree-lined fairways are nice and long, not too many bunkers, This is a deceptively challenging course! With the wide and relatively flat fairways, it looks quite easy. Has nice challenges along the way.

No driving range and course is chewed up. A shame that the city is not spending more on this iconic course. Alister would be ashamed

Lovely Setting with Deferred Maintenance

Sharp Park is a nice little course with wide fairways and beautiful trees lining them. The fairway is a tad shaggy and the greens are fairly chewed up so a straight putt is nearly impossible. Despite this, it is a fun course to play.
