Course seemed closed.

I did not play as it was raining and there was nobody around. The proshop/check in was closed. So stuck around for 15 or so minutes. Still nobody, so I left. Hope to play this course again sometime in the future.
Thanks

come for the views not the course

Worth playing once for the views of the Golden Gate Bridge but that's it. greens are a little rough and unkept but decent for a pure muni. Fairways and rough are decently kept but not the best. Greens roll way faster than they should for the level of player there.

kind of a ripoff actually

I know- spectacular views from the back nine but views don't maintain the greens or tee boxes. This course is always in Rough Shape. It's a short and quirky layout, which I enjoy but the greens are half dead, do not drain, are bumpy. The tee boxes are like teeing up in light rough on uneven terrain. And they charge $16 PER RIDER for the cart. I've been playing this course since the eighties...never seen it in such bad shape.

If you have to golf? Go here I guess?

The layout is challenging and unique. That’s the only thing going for this course. The fairways are hit or miss. Sometimes good grass. Other times smash your tee shot in the middle of the fairway...and into a dirt patch. Just not acceptable for what should be a top ten golf course in the country given the location and views. The greens are just tragically bad. You can’t learn anything on your putting game here. A billion bumps from jerks not fixing their ball marks. So stupid and irresponsible. The worst part of it is if you play with the locals here they’re just so uneven. They love the course but then are the worst offenders of common upkeep (the greens). All in all it’s a fine place to play for the price if you’re a resident. But don’t by any means pay anything more than a deal type price here. It’s just not worth it. Then again, in a pinch you can get a round in here and not be completely bummed. You just won’t learn much about your game because the course is not well kept.

Nice day

Fun course. Greens were in rough shape. But the views are STUNNING! People here are friendly. Great course to kick back with some friends and relax. Forget your score and just enjoy the day.

Limit number of golf carts

No choice to have a golf cart. Big negative for the course. Made this a bad experience for a first timer. Would not recommend this course to my friends. The only positive about the course was the view, but does not make up the lack of golf carts.

You get what you pay for, course layout was nice but the greens are terrible. Don’t go out of your way and travel to this course it’s not worth it.

Good course that needs better care

Lincoln Park is a good course with challenging and enjoyable holes.
It needs work on the maintenance.
The greens are lumpy and filled with bumps and divots.
It is a shame the course is not better maintained because it is a good course

The Most Beautiful Goat Hill in Town

I’ve always loved this course as it boasts some of the most spectacular views of GG Bridge, Mt Tam, and the headlands on the northern side of the bridge. Though today had lingering fog everywhere at least the smell of smoke was less intrusive at this course than other places in the Bay Area. Greens played slow today; it appears that they just aerated the greens and added sand. I’m glad for the upkeep, I just wish I had a golf cart to carry me to each hole.

Pot hole greens

Course has AMAZING potential but lack of care keep this mini Harding park unplayable

If you like walking up n down mountains then this course is for you cause they don't have golf/push carts for anything after 11am

Fairway and rough are the same thing here

Leave your putter at home cause the greens need more patch work then the city streets of SF

The views are sick tho

COULDA

Lincoln Park, could be such a gem if the City gave a hoot.. it has an awesome layout going to the cliffs overlooking the south side of the Golden Gate entrance to SF Bay, with truly spectacular bay views. The inland holes have great city views as well. The layout is short but demanding, the backside par threes are all over 200 yds- from the whites!
All the makings of a spectacular course are there. BUT and it is a big but indeed, the course suffers from neglect. The tee boxes are mangled, the fairways and green sides are pretty barren, the domed greens are completely pockmarked and poorly mowed. Pace varies but if you have a slow group in front of you, don’t expect a Marshall to speed up play, there isn’t one around.
This course needs to go the way Harding park did and be taken over a golf management company that will rehabilitate it. At $33 for an SFresident with a card, it’s not horrendous, but you really get what you pay for. Personally, I would not mind paying more if it were adequately maintained. It could be that good.
