SF at its best

This is the quintessential SF golf course - no phony posers, no obnoxious golf carts, no membership BS. This is a golf course for folks who want to enjoy beautiful SF hillsides flanked by majestic cypress trees and hit a few balls with a couple of friends.

So some of the tee markers are hard to find, so the start of the fairway is dusty, so there are no ball washing stations or benches to sit on... Big whopping deal - if you want a championship course, there are plenty of those, and you'll have to wait and put up with loud talkers.

This is actually my favorite golf course in the SF area - unpretentious, totally casual, a little loose, and cheap alcohol. What a perfect way to spend an afternoon in SF.

This is the "anti-golf course" golf course. PERFECT.

online booking is also super convenient and easy.

Horrible staff

We read reviews about the staff on Yelp but until you witness the hostility and unfriendliness first hand you’ll never truly understand. We played the day after thanksgiving. This was one of the only courses with any available tee times because we waited until the last minute. That’s pretty much the only circumstance that would prompt us to play Gleneagles ever again.

Tough 9 Holer!

This gritty little 9 holer has a great reputation for a reason. It’s a little rough around the edges but the layout is awesome. The greens are challenging and usually in good shape. Can’t wait for the coolest bar in SF to open up again. Best hang in golf!

Hardscrabble

Gleneagles is regionally known for difficulty. Nine holes with different tees for front and back. Narrow driving holes with sketchy fairways. My friend and I agreed to bump the ball in the fairway.. the greens are in really good shape. Not super fast but true. All but one breaks towards the cow palace. Grueling fun.

Friendly Staff, Brutal Course

Pros:
+Staff was awesome! Friendly service, good advice on the course layout, and very welcoming.
+ Was not crowded at all so pace of play was nice and we could take our time.
+Good physical workout going up so many hills against the wind and in sand,

Cons:
Fairways are a combo of sand, dirt, rocks, etc. You almost never have a clean lie unless on the fringe.
Pretty difficult course layout leads to lost balls or awkward shots throughout the day
SF winds + steep hills make for a fairly painful day of golf.
Yardage markers are not easy to spot or don't exist on some holes.

Overall, you can play 18 for under 50 bucks here which is great. BUT be prepared for a really rough course with ugly conditions throughout. Really appreciated the friendly staff but hated the course layout and conditions. It is what it is for this price though...

Needs TLC

You could tell it was a beautiful course in the past but the upkeep on the fairways and tee boxes appears to be non existence

Terrible condition

Course was in terrible condition. Fairways sucked. Greens were decent but had some wire mesh in the middle of some greens. Overall pretty bad condition.

Affordable course in SF

The course could use a lot of upkeep as there was a good amount of dead grass throughout the course. I'll attribute that to the coronavirus and hope that it will get better the next time I go.

Hard, but friendly staff and great greens

Best public golf in SF. Greens are the best kept in the city. Pretty unforgiving in terms of difficulty’s but a great public course! Also the staff were super friendly.
