Good Value, Excellent View

The course is in moderately good shape. The grass is long so I had trouble on some holes distinguishing between the fairway and the rough. The course is rolling and provides a good walking workout! I like how the course winds around the hills through neighborhoods and park areas. The view of the Golden Gate Bridge from the 17th tee box is wonderful-especially on a sunny day!! With all the rolling hills the course provided a good challenge and was a good value. There were times we weren’t sure which way to go to get to the next tee box - more signage would be nice. At one point, a car was blocking the cart pathway (we rented a cart rather than walk). This was by the Legion of Honor. The person in the car was on her phone and was very rude when we asked her to move out of the way. There wasn’t any other way for us to go. She had many empty parking spots to choose from which is where she moved to. One does have to watch out for traffic since the course crosses over roads and parking areas.

Good course not in very good condition

Lincoln is a good course.

It has one par 5 which is highly unusual.

The par 3's a very long and difficult.

The greens are in poor condition.

Used cart

Riding cost for singles

Though the golf was good, I was not happy that as a single, I had to pay a full cart cost. This is the only course that I have ever seen this. There is usually a ride or walk price. Even though I grew up San Francisco and played this course many times in the past, I will never go back as a single.

Shame on The City of San Francisco

Save your money. The city of San Francisco has completely let all aspects of this course go; clover filled fairways and greens that have a fungus on every single green. Yes That’s All Eighteen. That being said, BE WARNED. The last blow for this course is the CART PATH ONLY. You will not find this information on web site for Lincoln Park nor disclosed by GolfNow. I have a feeling The City will be closing the course and making it into a City Park as I see the new Mayor spending money on something that benefits the homeless population in lieu of people who pay taxes and live or visit SF.

Last comment I have, check out the golf cart we were issued; an old cart with all four tires bald. That’s correct, bald and also a broken steering box. You are required to leave your drivers license for the key to the cart. But the views of the Golden Gate Bridge were great.

First Time Playing

Cool course for the value, especially in the evening. Was my first time playing the course, and only played the first nine holes. Not in great condition and not well-manicured, but it’s great for the price and a fun/challenging place to play a cheeky round and get some practice in.

good course in fair condition

Lincoln is a good course but not in very good condition.

There were very few people on the course partly because it is overpriced for anyone except San Francisco residents.

Residents pay $27 on weekdays but non residents must pay $41.

On golfnow we paid $34.

Good City-Owned Muni Course, AMAZING Views!

Be warned, it's maintained about as well as you think that a city-owned muni course in the middle of a city with a handful of employees would be. As long as you go into your round with that in mind, it's a really fun course to play. And as with ANY walk that you might take through San Francisco, you're going to be going up and down hills!

I live in SF and play this course every 4-6 weeks (when Presidio is too busy), and it is a fun course to play. The city doesn't have the funding to keep this in tip top shape, so unfortunately there are some rough patches around the course. But what suffers in course maintenance is absolutely made up for with the views! (see pictures from the famous 17th tee).

The white tees are about 4950 yards with only one par-5 (VERY short), and it's a par 68. That being said, this course can be sneaky tricky. Not finding the fairway can be detrimental since there is some pretty long rough around the course. Trees also line almost every fairway, so you might find yourself having to shape shots to stay out of the woods.

Getting a cart here is a bit of a pain since they only have a handful of them, and it's ALWAYS cart path only. About 6 months ago they had a string of a**holes flip 4 carts in only a couple weeks, so they changed the rules and they are very strict about it.

Also be forewarned, they're VERY strict about bringing outside alcohol onto the course. I've even been "caught" when I was trying to put beers into my bag in the parking lot. So do this at home... They've also came by on the course and given me the "we don't sell that type of beer here, you need to get rid of that now or leave."

The course was first built in 1902 with 3 holes, and expanded to 18 holes in 1917. I would say that the clubhouse reflects this fact. The cafe is decent with some good breakfast options, hamburgers, hot dogs, sandwiches, etc.

All in all, it's a good price for a round of golf in the city, and one that you probably need to make sure to do for the views.
