Where some of the Legends have played the course is a bit tricky on days. A lot of different angles and trick shots to master here. Got my hole in one here on this course luckily I had drink insurance. Parking is sweet if you have a permit or know someone at the course. The restaurants not to shabby as well, always a new item everyday. A must try course for golfers.
I was looking for a place to play in the City and decided on the Presidio, because TPC Harding is still recovering, greens were punched on 09/02. Played the course a few days ago for the first time and was impressed with the conditions of the course, considering that they don't water the course much. The course is nestled near Golden Gate and during the afternoon expect to deal with the Fog, Wind, and some drizzle. It felt like the back 9 was a little more blustery than the front, but overall the conditions were not bad. This course is very hilly, but walkable. Fairways and tee boxes were good condition some dry spots and ground under repair, but nothing to bad. One thing, like other yelpers have noted, the greens are slow. Layout is very challenging, slope rating 129 from the whites, so adjusting appropriately to the uneven lies will be key on most approach shots. Prices were decent, especially for Bay Area residents. Overall, enjoyed the course, and will definitely play again.
Now it's time to play TPC Harding so I can compare the two
I sandy birdied 3 last time I was here, and then afterward was treated to a free Anchor beer on draft-- you actually get two free beers, or water, soda every round. It gets a bit busy on the weekends after twilight begins at 3:00p, so expect around a 5-hour round with the risk of not finishing unless of course you have night goggles. Overall a great vibe, excellent greens, but some of the fairways are steeply sloped to the right, so expect to either loose many balls or hit in opposing fairways if your handicap is above 10. I love this course, except of course when I have a lousy shot, which seems rather frequent, but c'est la vie. I'll try again next time.
I have played here many times and I love this track. The fairways run nice and it is challenging. I really wish the greens were faster though. They seem to be extremely slow. The changes in the clubhouse really suck since they changed vendors as well but I am rating the course and not the food service. The pro's are top notch as well and everyone is very friendly.
Great course, I play here a few times a week. I love the convenience, cost and the overall layout of the course. The staff is always awesome. It's a challenging course but really fun even if you are new to the game. Only downside would be that greens could be a lot faster. Frustrating when you've got the line but can't get it to the hole because they're so slow...
